"When will our leaders face up to the truth that the EU is a gigantic sham?"
Some, like this one, are direct and hard hitting...
In the U.K. Telegraph, Janet Daley begins her writing with this:
"What is left of the European idea? Whatever indeterminate reassurances emerge from however many EU 'summits' on security and shared intelligence, everybody must know that Paris was the end.
The disastrously uncoordinated response to the refugee crisis had already discredited the notion that this was a unified federation in which all member states had an equal voice. The grand verbiage of solidarity and cooperation simply dissolved when faced with a global humanitarian disaster – precisely the sort of event which the whole edifice was originally constructed to avert. And then, with Paris, it became horrifyingly obvious that the open borders policy – the most sacred of the EU founding principles – was unsustainable. As Abdelhamid Abaaoud and his army of butchers had clearly known all along, and the migrant-traffickers were able to promise their desperate customers, once you set foot on the holy ground of Europe you may as well be invisible."
