margot parker, The United States of Europe
In The Media & Newsletter » Margot Parker MEP - The United States of Europe
As we approach March 29 and the planned date for Brexit we should look closely at exactly what we are achieving.
The European Union is not a trading market - let us be clear, it is a political project aimed at creating a single European state, (see notes below).
Anyone who still feels it is purely a trading organisation such consider the following - what market trading bloc has ever demanded its members abolish their own citizenship, their own armed forces and their own currency? What market needs its own passport, its own flag, its own national anthem, its own central bank, its own president and its own parliament?
This attack on the democracy of member states is dangerous. We have to respect our own democracy - it is never perfect but it is infinitely better than losing it entirely.
