Agreed.

Hating 'that lot' in Brussels does not make me isolationist or racist any more than hating 'the other lot' in London makes me unpatriotic.

Agreed also

However first someone will have to teach the masses that the government is 'not' the country, they will also have the same job with 'the government'!

Anon (1) ta also. Re teaching, I fear it is a long process........

Anon (2) Ah but if we had referenda and the right to instigate and control the re-call system (rather than govt deciding whether we did)no govt would last 5 minutes as we then just do a mass recall resulting in one dead govt!
