“Europe has to start treating voters like adults”
GOOD LUCK WITH THAT ONE, Daniel!!
Actually, it does already treat us like adults, only like adult populists (in Brusselo-Eurospeak = brainless, fascist, neo-Nazi-types), eurosceptics, Milch Kühe and morons to be ignored.
Once the EU has read your message I shall monitor the EU’s progress towards a more rational, respectful and democratic approach towards the people who pay their obscene benefits, but I am not holding my breath.
As for Berlusconi and Beppe Grille (With that wonderful name, why isn’t he selling pizzas by the roadside?), two clowns running Italy will be no problem; we desperately need a change from the existing clowns, and at least the new ones are not in the pocket of the EU, the ECB, Berlin and Goldman-Sachs.
(I shall use the acronym QOD to describe the latter in future, and a prize to the first reader to guess the meaning!)
