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

View Post

Europe right now is still at the point of not knowing what problem they are actually trying to solve but bouncing solutions around nevertheless. Often in politics agreeing on the problem is the difficult bit. Once that is done the path ahead become obvious.
Exactly this.

Cumbersome and bureaucratic the EU might be, I think to expect a one size fits all, quick and easy solution is a bit naive, and to throw criticism around when there isn't one forthcoming is pointless and misdirected. Even if the EU didn't exist it would still need some committee comprising all the affected nations to come up with a solution which fits everyone and somehow respects the situation of the migrants.

It's always easy to "blame the bureaucrats" for everything but when it is a crisis as devastating, sensitive and vast as this it's never going to be a quick fix that suits all people involved.
