The EU is dead... long live Europe
The EU is dead. It is no more. It has ceased to be. It's bereft of life. It rests in peace. It is an ex-EU.
There's something weirdly fitting about invoking Monty Python when it comes to the EU, because the organisation is so farcical, it demands comparison.
Not only farcical, of course. It is also bloated, unwieldy, staggeringly corrupt, profoundly undemocratic and, thankfully, on its last legs.
