Still undecided with less than three weeks to go before the referendum? This might help. They – the Europeans – want us to leave! They’ve had enough of us. And, frankly, who can blame them?
That – at least – is the point of view of the French daily Libération’s Jean Quatremer: although he says at the outset that it’s not really in our interest to leave, if we stay in we will make life sour for them like never before, and the ailing project, buffeted by nationalist winds from the East, will be done for: "David Cameron will be the only European leader to have won a referendum on Europe and will therefore have a central role in the Community game. He and his successors will then negotiate concession after concession and thereby bury entirely the federalist dream of the European fathers and complete the Old Continent's transformation into an ever slacker free-exchange zone". Therefore, for the sake of the EU, we are politely being asked to clear off.
