Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Jerome is one of the top recommended bloggers on DKos - in English - and founded this place - in English - six years ago. As a native English-speaker myself, I have often expressed the idea that the English-language media tend to dominate the content and standpoint of much of international media, spreading neoliberal ideology (which has proved itself much more effective in undermining the European project than anti-EU broadsides). But the notion that anyone is dismissed offhand on this forum because they are native English speakers is ludicrous.

As for the Anglo Disease idea, it's about the destructive dominance of the financial sector, not about an Anglo-plot to undermine the EU. The disputed "Anglo" part is based on the pre-eminence of Wall Street and the City of London in the global financial sector.
