It's an interesting proposition... even if this particular question has been worked... and re-worked... to death an awesome number of times.
For myself, I have no fear or resentment towards any european country. I cannot think of one that I don't like... and I cannot think of people from the various parts of Europe with which I am acquainted without affection.
It is partly because I so thoroughly enjoy the character and variety of other european countries that I am so vehemently opposed to the EU.
Europe is real. It is a diverse group of countries which have developed through their own internal dynamic... and through interaction with each other... over a very long period of time.
The EU is NOT real. It is the invention of self-serving charlatans who want to control and enslave the free peoples of Europe in the best interests of such august institutions as Tescoes, Panasonic, the HSBC... and so on.
As for "invasion"... why would an Englishperson fear invasion from Europe...???
Our country is already invaded... and few of the invaders came from Europe.
The EU simply completes the pictures so that we can now say... "We are an invaded nation ruled over by a corrupt, foreign authority."
