Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In Wales:
Many employment rights that people have are a result of EU directives, and are now taken for granted.  Yet people are hostile about the EU because this message isn't being given to them, they only hear the anti-EU stuff.
Remember the Human Rights Act? That is not EU but Council of Europe. In any case, Blair and New Labour Generally have spent their second term in Office threatening to take it down without opposing the tabloid narrative that it's somehow a bad thing.

This is your party's leadership (including a large fraction of the front and back bench) we're talking about. When you fix that you can come back and blame Brussels.

The brainless should not be in banking. — Willem Buitler

Oh right. So here it is.

I personally accept full responsibility for all the shit that MY party has landed on the UK since it came to power in 1997.

I'll go off and fix that now shall I?

I think he may have using a plural you there.

Mind you, if you could personally  fix that stuff it'd be great too.
