United Kingdom, or England was one of the founders of the European Union. This was one of the Churchill´s dream. After the Second World War, England had a importante role on the reconstruction of Europe, and their safety.
That´s why it is strange the nowadays behaviour´s about the European decisions to unify and make the European Space Community.
It is not about the coin. Instead of the British people do not adopt the Euro! Because the Pound is a traditional coin? more powerful? Bu it is complicated and borring, also unsual change money when we want go to the United Kingdom...
Also Schengen is not accepted by the British Government´s. Why? Security reasons? Afraid? It is unsual and also slow. And the passport is bigger than the Identity Card. Every country of Europe adopt Schengen. Is a free space, more quickly and superficial. That´s the reason in Europe we believe in a guarantees freedom of people and goods. Why you not count meters instead of Yards?
One of the biggest examples of the United Kingdom and Ireland are unlike the most of European South, Center and East Europe; is the recently rejection of the Lisbon Treaty by the Irish people. The conservative and traditional rules prevail over the new ideas, changes and modernization.
Seems like the United Kingdom are a little bit alone in the XXI Europe. They drive for the left and the most European Countries to the right. And is not only in the road..... Is in the customs, people, feelings, rules, enviroment.
This is to continue or there will be changes?
