On Wednesday (24 August 2016), Merkel said remaining member states must listen to each other carefully and avoid rushing into policy decisions.

“If you do it wrong from the beginning and you don’t listen – and act just for the sake of acting – then you can make many mistakes,” the conservative German leader said.

Pity they didn’t have that ethos when concerns about the ERM and the effect of total complete free movement by member states, accountability of unelected officials, prevention of state intervention to high employment ailing industry, fundamental movement away from what the UK citizens voted for in the 1970’s and other areas the UK Government felt difficult to ‘sell’ to the influential anti EU ‘hawks’ in the Treaty of Rome negotiations. 

Although I voted to stay in because I believed the principle and benefits of doing so outweighed the negatives overall, the outcome of that treaty and the seismic effects of post 2008 financial collapse, plus the economic terrorism against the least who could afford it under Cameron led to Brexit
