Regrettably many did not think deep enough, and some not at all

Yep. Mainly those wanting rule via Brussels. Glad we're out of this mafia type organisation. Still funding Putins war are they ? How quaint.

No blame on Stanley Johnson who's a Remainer, but what a hypocrite his son is after denying others the right to live in France...

And Sainsburys have just announced they are hoping to stop selling Russian diesel by the end of the year, are we still in the EU?

Fortunately not. Rule via Brussels is over. Deal with it and stop crying.

Surely not ? Where is DC2 these days ? I thought he would be coordinating all of this in the food industry, or is he too busy dealing with self sufficiency ? :rofl:

The old replacement conspiracy theory raises its right wing ugly head again. Get a like from phloppy no doubt :rolleyes:

Meanwhile...

Davos-Klosters, Switzerland, 25 May 2022 – The European Union surprised the world, and even itself, with the speed, scale and unity of its response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine. This “new” Europe is ready to project both soft and hard power on the world stage, European leaders told participants at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2022.

Christine Lagarde, President, European Central Bank, on the panel at the session, European Unity in a Disordered World?, said the Ukraine war has revealed how powerful Europe is collectively: “This is a new dawn for Europe.”

The war on Ukraine has also revealed weaknesses – including global supply chain vulnerabilities and over-reliance on Russian energy, she said, but Europe is addressing this and can begin to flex its muscles on the global stage. “Europe has untapped purchasing power, trading power, technology power, pension power and moral power.”

Roberta Metsola, President of the European Parliament, reinforced the point. “This is Europe’s moment,” she said. “Europe can become the global project for peace.”

Mistakes of the past will be rectified, she said. “For way too long we did not seriously consider an energy union where we can rely on each other rather than on a country that can switch us off at any time.”

Referring to the EU’s support and defence of Ukraine, she was emphatic: “This is not the time to talk about face-saving for Russia or appeasement.”

Eduard Heger, Prime Minister of Slovakia, also on the panel, said: “If Ukraine falls to Russian aggression, Slovakia is next.” He added that we must continue to provide military support as well as step up humanitarian aid. “Above all we need to give Ukrainians hope.”

“Let’s not compromise – we must remain faithful to the values of the EU – freedom, rule of law, human dignity and equal rights.”

Micheál Martin, Taoiseach of Ireland, said of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine: “The people of Europe have spoken. Enough is enough.” In response there is much stronger unanimity between member states and more support than ever to accept the accession of new members.

He continued: “We see the EU’s future in terms of the green economy and in terms of the digitalization but also in terms of enlargement.”

Mark Rutte, Prime Minister of the Netherlands, called on European member states to continue to raise their defence spending. “The NATO alliance members are inseparable, but Europe must play its part,” he said. “This will help transform Europe from a soft power to a hard power.”
