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

Quote:
Manfred Weber, from the link: " I also learned to appreciate the little quirks that made them British, Italian, Spanish…"

The "little quirks"?

And they wonder why people voted for Brexit. The Euro-Federalists have no idea whatsoever. None.
Quote:
Because national identity and culture are quite a bit more important to most people than Mr Weber's patronising little phrase implies.
Seriously! You make all that from a simple comment! And I would say quirks is the right word actually - it represents the difference between the common European outlook and what makes us French, German, English etc...
