As the UK prepares for the crucial vote on its future in, or out, of the European Union, polls suggest the debate is neck-and-neck. I think the “In” will just nick it but does that mean we should be happy with the outcome? Either way there is no clear mandate that the current union is good enough for the 21C.
The EU as a concept is great. It has given us peace, commerce and a rich cultural diversity. But it is the decaying institution of government that needs reform. As all things innovation, the pervasive model for Europe will come from disruption rather than slow reform from the inside out.
This is what the Politicians from all sides don’t get and is the real challenge for all 500 million Europeans. A Change Is Gonna Come.
