The logic of the whole project – the Union as it has been, and still is,
conceived – is unsustainable. Its contradictions and the consequences
of its failure to live up to the grand unifying ideals of its founders,
have now become so glaring that no one is even attempting to gloss them
over. It is, of course, the great mass walk-in – the migration crisis –
which has made this so inescapably clear. The EU was clearly incapable
of coping in any rational and organised way with this phenomenon, even
when its staggering growth had become entirely predictable."
