MOSCOW, 23 October – The European Union has become a failed federation, reminiscent of a Disney fairy tale wrapped in legal intricacies. He writes about this in an article for The telegraph journalist Sherell Jacobs.
“Every day we get new reminders that Britain was lucky enough to escape while it still had the opportunity,” she said.
According to Jacobs, the EU is on the verge of a crisis that threatens its existence. The journalist believes that the organization misunderstands modernity, making mistakes in several ways.
First, the EU intervenes too actively in the management of the economies of its member states, which ensures slow growth at best. Secondly, it began to claim global significance, although it has no real opportunity to compete, for example, with China. Finally, the pandemic has exposed many flaws in the EU’s structure, and illogical measures like border closures have strengthened centrifugal forces.
Jacobs added that even if the EU does not disintegrate, it will in any case face obsolescence, the only question is when it will happen.
In the comments, the readers agreed with the arguments of the journalist.
“Like all empires in history, the EU will share the same sad fate. It is too arrogant, too intractable, too ineffective and ultimately too disgusting to survive,” Vexed Bermoothes wrote.
“The EU has a classic rejected lover syndrome,” added Adam Willis.
Some readers felt that Britain needed to keep a close eye on the situation in the EU in order to promptly propose mutually beneficial bilateral trade deals under other countries.
The UK officially left the EU on January 31, 2020. 52 percent of Britons voted for this in a referendum in 2016. Until the end of 2020, a transitional period was in effect, and from January 1, 2021, an agreement entered into force, according to which London left the single market and the EU customs union, but continued free trade with Europe without duties and quotas.
