"Viewed from Berlin, Britain appears ever more dysfunctional and absurd." I'd suggest that that view isn't exclusive to Berlin.

Worramess.

If it's not the ECJ, which other body should arbitrate?

I'm still waiting for someone to explain to me how the UK is better off outside the EU.

1) we got our sovereignty back
erm, that’s it.
ANGER MAKES US AWARE OF INJUSTICE
We often experience anger when we are denied rights or when faced with insults, disrespect, injustice, or exploitation. Anger serves as an internal guidance system that indicates something is not quite right, that someone has treated us unjustly or unfairly. Anger helps communicate to others: “You’d better treat me fairly; otherwise, you’ll pay a high cost.” On a global level, standing up for a lack of fairness can prevent people from taking advantage of others. This type of anger can bring about positive change in society and increase the social cost of misbehaving.

- In which ways was the UK not sovereign (bearing in mind that it was a major participant in common rule-making)? - In which ways has this newly-regained "sovereignty" improved lives?
