Artist's Description

Somebody lifted up the anchor and it seems that the UK (or like our friend Borat would probably say “The U and K”) is drifting away from the rest of the European continent.

It all started when the Iron Lady decided in the 80’s that the UK would stop being an important piece (the most important, I would say) in the European project to become instead USA’s 51st state. Unfortunately, no one after her took the contrary decision, in deed the actual English Prime-Minister is even throwing more coal into the steam machine that is moving away the UK from Europe. Which is a pitty because everybody will loose. Soon the UK people will realise that they can’t live just on the financial market and being literally speaking an island. Soon they will realise that they were better when they were a part of the complicated European puzzle, and nobody will really undrestand why did they turn their back on Europe. On the other hand, countries like Germany may think that this is a victory, because the bothering stone on their path will nevermore exist. And in the beggining it will be actually like that. But later (sooner than later), the mainland willl also realise how bad it is to loose UK. With nobody to do serious couter weight to Germany (in this matter France and Italy are a joke! Seriouslly, I don’t understand why…), Europe as a project will loose strenght and cohesion, will disrupt. Actually, this whole € crisis thing is a very good sample of what will be an European project without a fully dedicated UK.

Just think if the UK would be a fully dedicated member of the EU, think how strong and cohesive this federation project/sketch would be!! How things would be so much better…

We will all see after Mr. Cameron’s referendum…
