What I can tell you is that the UK is special in the EU since it is a net contributor.
You are even behind Italy, which is telling.
This makes it easier for the US to control European objectives [...]
The most politically and economically aligned with USA country in the EU is UK.
UK even used several times its veto right - in matters it even didn't participate initially at all - because the regulations had threatened USA's business in EU (not even related to UK!).
It might seem different in the UK, but outside the bubble everyone knows that UK is the willing whore of the USA. You have established the fact with many actions over the past decades.
The UK would be better to cut ties with the conquered and recognize who are not its friends.
I wonder if UK has any friends at all. USA?
Otherwise, I have started that thread precisely because I think that removing people like you from the EU would make it a better place.
