Stopping shipments of vaccines to NI, launching a smear campaign against Astra Zeneca and now threatening the supply of electricity to the Channel Islands all demonstrate the EU style of diplomacy that others outside of the EU have been experiencing for years. It is called bullying.
The EU uses the stick as a first move, not a last resort.
It confirms my view that a Franco-German superstate is an unpleasant development. The UK, with only a tiny fraction of the votes in the EU, had been unable to stop EU bullying in places like the Ukraine or Greece but our pro-EU media had always played down the nastiness of the EU. Now we can see the EU from the outside it should be clear that we are dealing with a monster. It will only get worse and we should be glad that we are outside and not part of the population of this rigid new state. The oppression will afflict EU citizens as the Union progresses internally.
