Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No, the key now is ideological capture, and David McWilliams is arguing that the future is a corporatised global world, not a national one or the EU based on nation states and a large bureaucracy.   (eh - let's forget about the democracy bit....)

And he has a point.  The last thing anyone can remember the European Parliament doing for them is the elimination of roaming charges, and that took many years.

The EU has a credibility and PR problem, it is no longer seen as delivering new tangible benefits to ordinary people.  That may be partly unfair, but that's a growing perception.
