It is clear from the way the vote result has been delivered, both in UK and France, that the people who feel most disaffected by the 'establishment ' are the very people perhaps referred to here as the 'people in the sticks'
I understand the commune vote of the French is getting on for 4 to 1 in MLP favour and certainly in the UK the former industrial heartlands are the ones most expressive in the desire for change.
So to try and express the EU as a 'bank grab' culture to determine who wins, or try and take moral ground over the holding of power, is to ignore the whole picture and continue to disaffect ordinary people?
The UK are doing some soul searching in the debates now, it's becoming a realisation that vocational and academic paths should be equally respected, it's pretty good stuff, and no riots to boot!
Is there a realisation from the stick people that the world should not belong to politics or to bankers or to capital owning individuals or corporations The basic discussions between member states and how they interact, even with a member who prefers to leave, comes down to the same view of civilisation. Respect, discuss, find common ground, live together and don't impose a false will on citizens.
Look at the colour of the French map and see the areas that are blue and are red in voting terms. Then tell me there is no division and unrest in that country.
I think the UK is addressing its divisions and issues right now, I hope our friends across Europe can also look to their people for discussions
