I was thinking about that speech Nigel Farage gave at the EU Parliament a few years ago.
He waffled on about how citizens of countries within the EU didnít want closer european ties, and they didnít see themselves as ďEuropeanĒ.
He said people identify as a citizen of their country. Then he said the only exception might be Belgium. He said it was because Belgium isnít a real nation. Youíre a mix of a few different peoples, and speak different languages. So therefore you donít see yourselves as Belgianinians or whatever. So youíre more likely to identify as european.
Iíve always chucked at that speech, and at how stupid Nigel is. Itís like he doesnít realise the exact same logic could be applied to the United Kingdom. A ďnationĒ that is literally made up of multiple countries, who donít really like each other.
