European Union

The bigger the EU gets the less consensus and more majority voting we get, hence the more unhappy people.

The single currency and European constitution reduce our 'policy space'. That is our ability to make fundamental changes to the way the EU runs.

"Europe...has been a success in almost every respect [socially and culturally] except the political." 1
