The EU and distortion

Just some under the spotlight, but not all

There is an ongoing fuss about the Tories and the EU, it is instructive on several levels. It confirms the generally held opinion that it will be the Tories who form the next government; otherwise why bother with it all? It also shows us how ill suited the UK is to be part of the EU. The UK approach to politics with its first past the post system (FPTP) is ideal if you wish to reinforce a sense of triumphalism. The Anglo Saxon attitude along with FPTP has its advantages, if you like to fight and win that is. But what if you lose? Well the fear of losing is no bad thing if it makes you smart, for it's then you learn other skills. True blue Brits, maybe some others too, may look askance at diplomacy, negotiation and compromise seeing these things as, Jeremy Clarkson might say, 'girlie'. That's stupid and ├╝ber-blokeish and why we in the UK always come off worst in matters EU.
