Abstract

In the first of a series for LSE BrexitVote, Alan Sked – who founded Ukip in 1993 (but has since distanced himself from the party) – examines the EU’s structures and purpose, and looks for clues in a pamphlet published by the Union. He argues that its aim is political and not merely economic union, and recalls the experience of Yanis Varoufakis during the Greek bailout negotiations and what it reveals about the ‘democratic deficit’ that afflicts the relationship between the ‘troika’ and the rest of the EU.
