The EU will never cave in. It'll die kicking and screaming eventually. It's a real gravy train with fingers in many pies. People are starting to realise what the EU is. It's a management agency. It produces nothing. It has cleverly established its position where it controls large aspects of many sovereign states and for that "privilege" charges them a cut. It is pure genius the way it has done this. Thankfully many countries around the world "manage" without being taxed/controlled by the EU. Some countries who have been milked by them, have residents who are starting to realise too. The EU is an entity, that is where it is because "it got away with it". If there was no EU and someone turned up on Dragons Den, today and said " Listen, I got a great idea, it's called the EU.." those Dragon chaps would say summit like " We're out, gonna go with tobacco or maybe mercury eye rubs for that London look".
