It is my opinion that people now call the EU the shortened name of Europe now on the TV.
1/ This regulation came from Europe
2/ Immigration from Europe
3/ The crisis in Europe
4/ We dont want to be governed by Europe
5/ In Europe but not governed by Europe
6/ Europe is the word that the TV now uses
People know what Europe is, but no-one even me understands what the EU is all about.
When you say the word European Union there is a switch that clicks off and people lose interest.
But of you say Britain is being threatened by laws from Europe evey one understatnds.
The threat from Europe is real, just look at the history of these islands.
The Roman Empire
The Viking invasions
Viking rule in Britain
William the Conquerer 1066
The Spanish Armada
100 year war with France
Admial Lord Nelson fought the French
Fear of Europe is in our bones and in our gutts.
The English have an instinctive fear of Europe.
And rightly so we have fought wars against Europe all through our history
Being anti-EU is interlectual
Being anti-Europe is emotional
It could make a big difference to the charisma of our leaflets.
