Unlearned Lessons of Brexit

Unlearned Lessons of Brexit

The European Union is in urgent need of Reform. UK and EU have became neighbours.

Now it is happening so. The British prefer the dangerous alone to the whereabouts of the ailing European Union. We should not do so, as if the decision against the EU could only be the particular self-understanding of the British. Rather, the debate about Brexit and its implementation will have vulnerabilities disclosed that could be the EU now to be a disaster. Are asked now not to blind by holding slogans on the road to “ever closer Union”, but the adaptation of the EU institutions, to the wishes of the citizens.

Rubbed have the British, especially in three of the EU-membership attributed to Miss: the Immigration, the financial cost of the membership and the loss of national sovereignty. Added to this was the observed resistance to the “elites”. Against the Background of a hum job market, it is not the concern for the immigration of so much competition for scarce jobs than the distribution of social benefits, including, not least, for all residents, existing state health care. Immigration then becomes a Problem if you are threatened with social services for the residents. In the debate about the cost of the membership was concerned primarily with the redistribution of UK taxpayers ‘ money to foreign recipients. As long as there is no European nation, there are clear boundaries for cross-border solidarity. Finally, stand behind the lawsuit over the loss of national sovereignty is not only the longing for the lost great power of Britain. There were specific complaints about the increasing limitation of the decision-making powers of the British Parliament in economic goods, social and fiscal policy Affairs, the water on the mills of the “Brexiteers” drew. In contrast to the Migration, distribution, and national sovereignty directly relevant programmes of the EU, the Use of the European trading community and of the single market of the EU-opponents never seriously in question.

Of course, the assessment of the costs and Benefits of the EU by the British is not directly on other peoples transferable. The British had a sober relationship with the European Union. The British, the political imperative for European integration, was established by the continental ground, held wars is missing. On the other hand, the post-war political rationale of the EU is moving with the time in the Background, and the economic front. Therefore, the British cost is not likely to differ-Benefit analysis of the EU no longer fundamentally different from that of other member countries. Migration in all countries is a pressing issue, redistribution only in the recipient countries, and the loss of Sovereignty is perceived as painful. The political Elite continues, this solution can be to miss, you could skip the Exit debate quickly to Fixit (Finland), Frexit (France) and, finally, even Gexit (Germany).

To avoid this, it would have to be tested in the existing EU-programs on their citizens compatibility. In the case of the monetary Union, the financial redistribution would have to be limited among the Euro countries through assistance programmes and the policy of the European Central Bank (ECB). In the case of the banking Union, the mutualisation of liability by a common Deposit insurance would have to be stopped. The fiscal Union, tax harmonisation and communitarisation of the state financing by the ECB purchase programmes would have to be rejected. And finally, the emergence of a social Union should be contacted by immigration to the national social systems.

All of this will not come off without a containment of the European court of justice, through its integration-friendly interpretation of European law evolved national legal standards. National parliaments must remain the masters of the EU institutions. These institutions and the European Parliament are not allowed to arrogate to itself more and more skills.

The customs Union and the common internal market have brought huge economic benefits, without having to touch the of the British of the identified sensitivities. The legitimacy of the Transfer of competence in these areas to the EU Commission and Parliament. Only where the EU would bring more freedom and prosperity, it is through ‘more Europe’ more. Otherwise, you will have to go through “more Europe”.
