You expected it to end now with the election on May 26. The Guardian article talks about the next 10-20 years. 

Anyway, the fact that many fear that the EU will collapse when we look more than 10 years into the future is not due to people in Europe not having positive feelings towards the EU. According to the article, Europeans have not been as positive to the EU since 1983, and 92 % of voters said they would lose out if the EU disappeared. So people believe in and want to have the EU, yet stil expect it to crash. That seeming paradox can be explained by the general trend of negative feelings towards our political systems, lingering effects of the economic recession, growing inequality, etc. 

That's because they want the economic goodies of an EU (as long as it doesn't come along with austerity), without the migration/refugee policies of the current ruling class.

I don't know where I claimed that? It is difficult to see how that constitutional could happen for a start. I feel the Eurozone will unravel the EU but it will be a prolonged period to overturn this Reich.

It will be a staged withdrawal. European populists, even Le Pen, are targeting the Eurozone. British Eurosceptics obviously did not possess this as a target.

Which is a guarantee for its continued existence. The fact you can't just dismantle it with the stroke of a pen means it will survive temporary distrusts and shifting swings in popularity, like what we are having now. A few years of populism, right-wing shift, and unrest after recessions, simply won't be sufficient to ruin something that has been painstakingly built over a large time. Which is good, because the alternative, its rapid destruction, would be irresponsible to next generations who otherwise would not get to enjoy the benefits of being a part of the EU (re: the recent poll that shows that most people within the EU would feel they lost out without it). Any change now as a consequence of this turn towards nationalism and protectionism will simply make it more robust for the next time the pendulum shifts in this direction.

I don't agree with any of this. 

PS

Even arch-remainer Gina Miller agrees with me,

Why why WHY would you do that?!  What kind of person are you, you're gonna get up to heaven and St Petes gonna deny you at the gate for that one!  In fact he's gonna call Jesus out just to kick you in the bollocks before they stick you in the lift goin' down, come on soon, I thought you were a better person than that.

May supposedly going to quit tonight. Andrea "I'm a Mother" Leadsom supposed to quit the cabinet to run for PM.

According to Sky News.

That would be basically swapping one loathsome shit for another equally loathsome shit. Come to think of it, the entire cabinet are morally reprehensible arseholes.

It is pertaining to the intellect and general demeanour of the Remainers to applaud this activity.

May has been supposedly ''about to quit'' for the last year or so according to the papers. She has more persistence than Shahid Afridi.

It wasn't especially funny. Candidates should be free from physical harassment - I'd say the same for politicians I loath such as Sturgeon and Diane Abbott. It isn't that long ago since Jo Cox.

Seriously? Can’t we make another milkshake exception for Diane Abbott?
