@Edward_Caplen @andrewdwilliams I thought a new topic to hash out a statement on the EU negotiations would be a good thing. I’m busy preparing for a talk right now, but feel free to stick ideas together here for a post.
I posted http://www.diem25.org/ the other day, that might be of interest.
Manifesto elements on the EU are here. My view on our stance is:
- Being part of the EU is a good thing (stronger together, etc)
- The world’s not getting less globalised, so we have to think internationist.
- National borders are becoming ever less important.
- BUT the EU needs to be more efficient, more democratic, and more accountable.
I think that aligns with DiEM, but I’ve not read the details of their site yet.
