    Indeed ,hence why leftist partys campaigned against it when referendums were held. That said I wouldnt claim its a purely free-market orientated project either.

    What Utopian idea is that?

    I appreciate the European Court and British people use that a lot.

    In most of Europe there is a rule on I think it is a 37 hour week. Here in the UK some people find themselves intimidated into working a 60 hour week. They are waiting for the 37 hour to become law via Europe here.

    Europe has seemed to be more socialist than the UK in recent years and that has been appreciated by me. However there are also lots of laws that come in that we know nothing about and just find they are new laws.

    As it is in this election I voted for this party, 'No 2 Euro, Yes 2 Democracy', though my vote was primarily to help avoid a BNP member in my area from getting in.

    My own feeling is that Europe weakened itself by taking in so many Easter European countries so quickly.

    We will almost certainly be having a referendum on the new Bill on the EU which previously we did not have one on. My guess is that the UK is going to move a bit away. We shall see.

    Up until recently people knew hardly anything about what the EU did unless they were interested enough to look for themselves. Now people are speaking about it a lot more.

    Seems like the far-right party in the Netherlands has became the second biggest party.
    Isn't the head of their party that politician who made comments against Islam?
