The EU is not representative of Europe. It is an institution that behaves like a growing tumour, slowly draining the life out of the continent.
But many cry: “it’s helping our economy!” Yeah, and an underweight person is going to benefit from the weight gain of growing a large tumour? The economy would look as if it’s growing on the outside, but the broken institution is only going to drain the lifeblood of the economy, slowly funnelling all resources into itself, just like a cancer.
Brexit is not going to be without risks, but you cannot excise the tumour without an element of uncertainty. I think most of us would agree that getting rid of the tumour is infinitely better. The only case where you may argue against excising the tumour is if you’re convinced that the person is already in terminal condition. But Europe is not going to die. We don’t want to give up on Europe, no matter how dire the situation may be. We want Europe to live! Get rid of the cancerous EU tumour!
