Making The Case
Nothing argues against the EU more than it's own supporters. Take the L3 reaction to the proposed referendum. See what the L3 press said about it here and here, or check out some of the attitudes on display (inevitably) at the Beeb's 'Have Your Say' forum. Try this statement:
There should definitely not be a referendum. Until the general public stops relying on the narrow-minded red-top newspapers to feed them an opinion on Europe, I believe that the government is right to overrule their wishes.
And there you have it. The EU is the mechanism by which the truly enlightened will finally free themselves from the dreadful drudgery of having to, y'know, actually win elections, build public support and the like. The dumb masses can shove it, only those who really know what the continent needs will be allowed to have a voice. Some of us have been saying this for years, but it's still great to get it out of the horse's mouth.
