EU's sad last days if vote occurs in Britain
The Kansas City Star
The European Union could be looking at its last good days if British Prime Minister David Cameron follows through on his pledge to let Brits vote on whether to stay in the troubled group of nations.
Some observers think Cameron’s throwing the EU under the bus as his way of boosting his public support for his Conservative Party, The Associated Press reports. Much of Europe is in a recession, and discontent over the 27-nation EU is runing high.
Member nations such as Greece, Italy and Spain have been a drain on EU resources. People in countries that have weathered the economic fall better are wondering whether getting out of the EU is the best thing to do.
The vote in Great Britain isn’t likely to occur until 2015. Perhaps by then the economy will have turned around, and people who are discontent with the EU today may vote for it in two years. It’s certainly a topic of conversations at the pubs.
