Yes, but the key consideration is we were a party to it and did nothing to force change despite being able to do so, the UK has held considerable influence in the EU at many levels and stages of its progress. It had ample opportunity to help shift direction and indeed a veto to block it. Instead the crayon munchers shout ‘Eubaaad’ and fail to realise that we are every bit as bad. Complain about CFP- Nigel Farage the self styled champion of the fisherman was on the CFP board and didnt attend meetings, did he expect them to think about ‘what would Nigel do’ and take those steps in his absence? Its a perfect illustration of how people complain about something within the EU but have done nothing to force change. We have a veto, we have power on committees, we have an interest as the 5th largest economy in the world, we have a significant number of MEP’s and have failed to undertake any meaningful change.
