UK will be 'cut off' from 'full intelligence picture' after Brexit – Europol strategy man


Re: Bloody hell.

The democracy you speak of is too far removed from the populace to be relevant. Government needs to be local to mean anything. No point at all in something the local populace wants done being out voted at EU level by people that don't see your issue as important because they live in a different system and culture thousands of miles away. My vote for out was based on sovereignty, democracy and wanting to move forward. The EU seems to hold much stuff back. If we'd had a referendum in 1992, or whenever it switched from a Common Market to a nascent Federal Europe, I think we'd have voted out then. As for keeping the peace. NATO does that, and besides, it's not the same world as it was 70 years ago. Communications, 24hr news, travel, better informed world view........
