16. The way things are going, the country you visit will likely be a lot nastier and poorer.

And what's with the Merkel hate? She's one of the few adults in the room at the moment, and hardly a warmonger.

If the UK hadn't decided to sit on the sidelines of the EU constantly moaning snobbishly and acting like it was such a special case that everybody else should kiss its boots and give it whatever it wanted whenever it wanted it and expect little or nothing in return, UK politicians could have been as influential. That was our opportunity to miss. Merkel really is the least of our worries.

For someone who came in here saying you were fine with the UK exercising its "independence" and championing our mythical "sovereignty", you sound like you have quite a few axes to grind.
