A good post WWII idea to combine six adjoining countries that had been defeated , overrun or occupied , made sense to maintain lasting peace among them . In part thanks to misguided pressures to join from Britain , the EU has grown into a political and bureaucratic monster , that only serves its centred ambition to be come a world power .
The EU has No notable leaders or Statesmen ; there is no sense of a precises direction beyond achieving greatness as part of the global movement , ignoring the fact that ordinary people are for the most part against globalism .
When the EU has no Real Democratic base from the Grass Roots People and no leader who can be respected , it should be no surprise if there is mistrust .
