Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

The problem of the EU is that it is no longer attractive to countries with highly developped economies (UK, Austria, France, Denmark, Nederland, Switzerland, etc.) while it keeps attracting much poorer countries with weak or inexistant economies (Bulgaria, Rumania, Albania, Macedonia, Ukraine) or countries systematically violating the human rights (Turkey).

Despite their rivality or animosity toward the Brits, most German and French want the UK to stay within the EU. Compare it to the more than 85% of French who wanted Bulgaria and Rumania to remain outside the union.

The EU will be seriously dented if the UK left the union. But unfortunately the two real bosses of EU (Germany and France) are not willing to integrate the UK as a true EU powerhouse, at the same level than the Franco-German couple.

It's sad, but a Brexit means the beginning of the end of EU.
