The cosy futility of life in the EU

Is there anything you could disagree with in Nigel Farage's vision of the future:  “Self-governing, self-confident and much more global in outlook,” he said.  “We have become too obsessed with Europe. It’s an important market place but there is a big world out there.”

One of the objections I have to the EU is the way in which it has encouraged dependency.  The way in which British national life has relapsed into self-indulgent apathy, the irksome disciplines of running our own nation replaced by ostensibly pleasing trivialities.  It is the cosy futility of life in the EU that makes it so noisome.
