The UK should have been an important part of the EU - unfortunately it was only the UK's contributions and, latterly, its ability to soak up millions of unemployed Poles, Portuguese, Italians, etc that were ever important to the EU.
This is garbage. Pure, unadulterated hooey. If you can't offer anything other than cant, then keep it to yourself.
