Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You're effectively arguing for a completely hands-off disinterested Europe. And that can't possibly work - for common sense reasons, never mind strategic ones.
But a meddlesome EU would quickly alienate the Eurosceptic states. The backlash in the UK would eject it from the EU quicker than you can say "European superstate".
