And these extremely small steps, and infinite in number .consist of ??

And ever thought that the rise in populism / nationalism in some ( or should that be a lot of ) EU member states is precisely because of ' ever closer integration ' being rammed down peoples' throats by other politicians and chancers who have no connection with those countries other than through their positions in the EU ??

No doubt a not needed reminder, but read again about the rise of National Socialism in Germany in the 20s and 30s - there are many parallels of the root causes in the way that the EU decides on / legislates on more and more and more ' on behalf of ' its own members' elected and supposedly sovereign governments in areas such as fiscal policy and taxation ; defence ; foreign policy ; legislative structures ; etc, etc, and yet there's seemingly even more interference still to come with ' ever closer integration '

The National Socialists played on the interference by foreign politicians in post WW1 Germmany.

Trouble is, the EU just refuse to learn from history.
