I will shoot myself in the head before it happens. Britain will not be dragged into this "United States of Europe."

Britain is completely different to the rest of Europe. We once ruled the world, and now everyone is trying to rule us- it ain't gonna happen while I'm still breathing
Italy once rolled the world as well(see Roman Empire), Spain also did...
Do not be so chouvinist.
But any way, we do not need you.

I think i would have to go on a rampage in belgium if that happened

why the **** would we want to change? 4th biggest economy in the world, pound as strong as its ever been, and getting stronger. Plus, if we join those pussies we'd never get to go to war again

Not all existence of Spanish empire is gone, just one example, over 300 million people just in southamerica speaks spanish. If you think all existence of Roman Empire is gone....well...just read & travel a litle bit.

By the way, you can stay in your island, who cares....

One popular myth is that the EU will be just as stable and united as the USA is. This is a severe misjudgement for the immediate future. Give it time though and we'll see.

It's not just the past wars that are the problem. Britain, Spain, France, Germany, etc are all different culturally.

Austria and Germany share the same culture, but that's as far as it goes. We'll never become the "USE" because we disagree with each other too much.

Well, I do not think that we are that much different in the cultural fact. We all have the same roots (Celtic and visigotic origin), we all were dominated by the roman empire,most of us speak languages originated in the latin, we all are Cristians, we all have democracy....and so on.

The biggest problems I think are: loose of soberanity and NACIONALISM.
