Hearing, but not speaking — 2 Comments

  1. I think Ireland being sent to redo their EU votes was indicative. And had the powers that be across the EU really studied the results we may not be where we are.
    There is a notion abroad that at core the EU is a good, if not for all, then for most. And I don’t think that is in fact the case. The truth is we are spending vast treasure answering questions from the 50s and 60s, which when converted to society in the late teens of 2000’s means poor French speaking Belgians are transferring across to the wealthy landowning Flemish. Or the poor English in Birmingham transferring to large landowners.

  2. The problem is that the Left has never articulated the injustices of the system in a way readily understood by working people, allowing them to be susceptible to the arguments of xenophobes.
