A recent survey across the EU11 countries that asked “what has the EU achieved in the last 5 years?” where “nothing” had 42% of the vote.

Federalisation would mean economic collapse. There can be no political union without fiscal union. Can you really see all Eurozone countries handing over control of their budgets and fiscal policies to Brussels? They can’t agree on Eurobonds let alone distribution of migrants.

Quite the opposite actually and proven to date. Germany is profiting immensely from a weaker southern Europe through a currency too weak for their economic model, yet too strong for debt laden low export economies.

This is nothing. Serious states protect its industry with custom duty , depending of sector, bteween 20% and 30%.

It is impossible for companies in China to import products into the EU without any custom duties.

German comapnies invest in factories in China and then import in EU, without any custom duty, products. That is areason why Merkel is defending globalisation.
