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

View Post
The last I heard, every EU member state can still set its own rules regarding citizenship. And they may have very valid reasons to have their own special loopholes.

If the EU wants to go in and create a proper European citizenship, meaning the same rules should apply across the board and strictly no exceptions, they should by all means go ahead and discuss that with a view to making it into legislation by due democratoic process.

But without having done that, they don''t have a mandate to meddle in matters outside of their competency. It's exactly this type of back door activism that gives the EU a bad name.
Curtailing rich people from basically buying their way into the EU is hardly "back door activism", is it? I think it would be seen worse by the other member states if the EU was turning a blind eye to it.

"Special loopholes" LOL.

You don't have to look far to see the anti-EU shouters are probably more into questionable practices than the EU they are campaigning against.
