    This is an interesting piece from 2014: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/jun/27...democratic-bandwagon-juncker-president-wanted

    Over the election of Juncker:

    "David Cameron is taking a lot of the blame. His uncompromising public campaign to destroy Juncker might have had heads nodding privately in agreement. But his indirect threats to quit the EU if he lost were perceived as bullying and blackmail, turning the commission president contest into a counter-productive zero sum game – support Cameron or Juncker."

      Indeed, interesting piece. I do wish that the 'european constitution' was never put in place. My country voted against that constitution in a referendum. And then the EU renamed it, and enacted it still.

      And here is an interesting article on the current situation of a comment left by a Guardian reader: http://indy100.independent.co.uk/article/peop...ndy&utm_medium=top5&utm_campaign=i100

      But I remain adamant, people voted to leave. Even though it'll probably be political suicide to enact it, they'll have to do it. In other words, they made their bed, now they'll have to lie in it.

        That the UK never joined the monetary system should have been an alert about long term intentions. This is indeed high intrigue and the finality of this decision will most likely be reviewed if this is found to be a calculated play. There is much money and power being fought over, and like war, the common citizen is held hostage, the fungible pawn in the race to dominate.
