Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What is the point of winning a war when you have to make peace with your enemies... becoming the equals of those you have defeated? Little matter that you only won the war because the USA came to your side, and now threatens to become your overlord?  What is the point of leaving if it will make you all poorer... Better to reign in hell, than serve in heaven.

Old people losing their identity: an identity younger people have embraced. It's about the EU, yes, but its also about cosmopolitanism, immigration, secularism, liberalism, diversity, pluralism, gender identities, class distinctions and younger people having more than you despite the sacrifices you or your parents made.

People used to "know their place", in the class and racial order of things; respect God, Queen, property, status, and Country; have clear gender roles and respect for authority; Worked hard in shitty jobs for bastard employers. Now it is young people, gays, immigrants who demand respect, with workers rights and consumer protections. The state, especially the EU, intruding on all.

We're not having that.
