The Brexit is a reality. While the press tended to focus on immigration and the economy, the real issue was that a growing number of British citizens did not feel that their interests were being served by the “un-Democratic” Bureaucracy in Brussels. Europeans, especially in the North, have seen their standard of living decrease as Brussels instigates costly, frustrating austerity measures to prop up the South.
France’s National Front leader Marine Le Pen and Dutch anti-immigration politician Geert Wilders (among others) are now screaming for referendums of their own.
The European Parliament is in full panic mode as analysts say that a domino effect from the Brexit could threaten the whole EU.
In Northern Europe much of the resentment toward the European Union stems from the belief that they are pulling all the weight while the “Garlic” countries of the South bathe in their sun-drenched tax-corruption, low production rates, and early retirements.
So while the EU seems like a good idea on paper, it is increasingly evident that cultural differences make it unwieldy in practice. For this reason I will once again put forward my proposal of a block of highly productive, industrialized European States that have applied Social Democracy with incredible results. Such a modern “Utopia” could serve to control and distribute the wealth, power, and resources throughout the rest of Europe, insuring maximum efficiency & return with minimum waste & investment.
Now I just need your help with a good name…
What is the best name for a New Northern European Alliance?
