EU

The nation state has outlived its usefulness.

EU seeks peace and prosperity through a free trade market.

The main problem with the EMU and single currency, is trying to apply one set of monetary rules to such a large and diverse number of countries.

The EU strives for Economic competitiveness and Environmental sustainability. These two goals are conflicting.

The MEP voting system is a proportional voting system. The UK is broken down into regions.

The EU is well placed to tackled European issues such as the environment, human rights, immigration, travel, how-ever it shouldn't be used to regulate local issues.
