The entire vision that a United States of Europe would prevent war has proven to be just another academic theory gone seriously wrong. Brussels has been fighting against any opportunity for the people to vote on exiting the Euro from Scotland down to Spain and Italy. They could not prevent a democratic election where the party had an agenda rather than a vote on the issue directly. The idea of a political union in Europe is dead. Margaret Thatcher was correct – it should have been an economic union, not political. Maggie saved Britain and it is ironic that the Irish who tended to really hate her, joined the Euro and have paid the price. We all learn from mistakes or else we are doomed to repeat them eternally.
