I couldn't think of anywhere else to put this, so I put it here!
On the main page it says: "Ireland stuns globalists by rejecting the EU by a wide margin, 53.4-46.6%.". This is true, except they didn't reject the EU (Ireland is already in the EU), but they rejected ratification of a Treaty to reform it (the Treaty of Lisbon).
I consider saying that is more appropriate to the sentence, as it makes clear that the Irish rejected a form of globalisation (i.e. greater EU integration). I hope that the sentence can be changed. Europeanunion 11:55, 16 June 2008 (EDT)
- It sounds like you have a valid point, but the people who work on the Main Page won't see your concern here. You'll need to put it on the Talk Page of the Main Page article. Learn together 12:55, 16 June 2008 (EDT)
Articles for the future
This article links to several good op-eds discussing the EU's numerous problems. I don't have time to add them all now, but I'm posting this here for the future. --1990'sguy (talk) 16:34, 16 October 2018 (EDT)
- Germany is demanding that France hand over its UN Security Council seat to the EU, since the latter will likely soon have its own unified military:  It will be interesting to see what happens. --1990'sguy (talk) 11:59, 29 November 2018 (EST)
- Manfred Weber, either through himself or through the media, is portraying himself as friendly toward Europe's conservative leaders such as Orban. However, his comments and stances on the issues, such as backing censure for Orban and his comments on Brexit that I saw this morning show otherwise. These should be added if we create a page about him. --1990'sguy (talk) 10:33, 30 December 2018 (EST)
CIA World Fact Book vs British English
This entire article is written in British English, and apparently is not a cut n paste from the CIA World Fact Book (then again, maybe it could be). RobSGive Peace a Chance! 16:11, September 13, 2023 (EDT)
