Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
They were "too far" because the EU has demonstrated over 20 years a political inability and unwillingness to make them work. This is not a theoretical argument.

Regarding Schengen, for instance, I have been taking night trains between Spain and Frence for nearly 7 years now and I have always had my passport checked at the French border by French customs officials. As far as I'm concerned, France has always been in violation of the spirit of it.
