The utter, unbelievable stupidity of the Euphile Left

The patient lay pale and wan, his skin the colour of the bedsheets. "I prescribe" proclaimed the Physician "More bleeding". Protests that the patient had been bled every day since complaining of a head-cold, and was now close to death from blood loss, were simply not understood by the Physician. He was confident in his stupidity that he and he alone knew what what best for the patient. 

John Palmer writing in the Guardian exemplifies this sort of Eu-Idiot so perfectly that you couldn't really make it up;
An antidote to the far right requires that the European left articulates and pursues a comprehensive alternative to economic stagnation, an ever-widening income and wealth gap and the degradation of our social standards, civil liberties and democratic rights. But that alternative has to be fought for at European as well as national and local levels, and will require more, not less, European integration.

To be fair to the lefty fool he is only iterating what EU big-wigs and politicians have been saying openly for years: more integration is the answer!

Every crisis requires "more EU integration."

Even when there isn't a crisis, "more EU integration" is essential.

They have been painstakingly building a United States of Europe for the past 50-odd years. They aren't going to give up now.

Only 50 years, Dee Dee? Oh, I thought it was much more than that ... Moves in that direction have been afoot ever since Marx and Engels shifted their German commie base from Brussels to England.

Come to think of it, Napoleon had a similar sort of idea.

And then there were all those Spaniards.

But you're right. It's been a long time since they got so close to achieving their goal. The last big winners were the Popes/Charleyboy and their precedent Caesars.

None so blind as them as wot don't want to see, eh?

What he is saying that is that the "European Left" must deal with all the shit that the same European has inflicted on us, and continues to inflict on us.

How unutterably stupid is this man?

"How unutterably stupid is this man?"

He's sat on an unutterably massive wedge of cash that can only get bigger providing he toes the party and EU line.

A quisling by any other name.

It's getting hard to tell who will win this race back to the dark ages (figuratively and literally), the US of America or the US of Europe.

Oh but that's part of the lie. The so-called 'Dark Ages' of Anglo-Saxon England were anything but. Those people knew more about education, unification, art, and literature than most of the de-educated of our times. And the Old Ones did it under the aegis of a Christianity that required all-comers to recognise and praise the Omnipotent God: no mere human could successfully guide others without turning to His principles.

In short, our forebears were Englightened. In contrast, the view today is the darkest this country has ever known.

There is a perfectly good, quite left-wing argument against the EU, that these spouters conveniently ignore. Wedgie Bee predicted that (& was correct in doing so) that it would turn out to be a corrupt, corporate, quasi-fascist cosying, crapping on both real workers & small businesses.
I know quite a few "Old Labour" voters who loathe the EU.

This supposed idea that to be anti-EU you have to be some sort of ultra-right nutter just does not hold water, I'm afraid.

And some of the preceding writers have also fallen into this trap, assuming that anyone to the left of the thankfully dead madwoman from Grantham is pro-EU.
Well, it ain't so!

Am I the only person who on first reading found the first sentence you quote strange, because I understood all the phrases "a comprehensive ...", "an ever-widening ...", "the degradation ...", etc. as parallel?

Think we're all pretty stunned by the idiocy just now - Clegg today for example.
