Though You're right all the same. The entire eu facade is designed to strip us of our basic freedoms in exchange for cheap labour. The one advantage the Irish, Portuguese and Greeks should have now is at least we should be able to see through the illusion. People 'of the leftwing' throughout europe are so wedded to right wing eu integration they don't even realize it. It's indoctrination of a right wing agenda. Very hard to be a 'republican' in some parts of Germany or France without being seen as a nationalist. The term republican of course in Irish and French and Spanish history being of a considerably leftwing sense.
