Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Bollocks to Greer. The EU is failing because the option of making it democratic and transparent was never even tried. It was built by technocrats,  shaped by lobbyists and instrumentalised by national politicians; civil society never got a look in.

As for Brexit, a nation of shopkeepers with a belligerant "what's in it for me?" attitude is slowly and painfully coming to the realisation that there was actually quite a lot in it for them... But too late, as their (untranslateable) British bloody-mindedness dictates that they must put the foot to the floor and drive right off the cliff.
