The EU won't exist by the time we decide we want back in. I think they all know that the beginning of the end has started.
The beginning of the end was the introduction of the Euro. It was all a matter of time after that. A truly disastrous decision that has economically crippled many nations purely because some Europeans wanted to create a European state.
Europe didn't need a common currency, the exchange rate hedging models that existing did the job just fine and worked exceptionally well. If a country does not control its currency, it can not control a great deal else. Your currency is like a shock absorber that allows to so slow and increase your economy by currency devaluation, interest rate manipulation and quantitive easing. Once you lose this, you are at the mercy of the larger economies.
We certain.y dodged a bullet there.
