Farage talks about details. Blair talks about vision. Blair is right of course. How else are we going to deal with climate change or corporate power without organisations like the EU on our side?

We need to reform the EU, not leave it. That's what I think.

And that is the problem walter, they "talk" about it with fake sincerity and then do nothing about it and carry on just as before.

I agree. That's why we need reform - not just of the EU, but of all our politics and big industries.

Human beings are not yet very good at running big organisations that benefit society. We have a lot to learn, hopefully before we destroy the very planet we depend on.

Leaving the EU is a backwards step. It's just running away from problems and solves nothing.

Actually I have to disagree, leaving the EU is a forward step, its an affront to democracy to be ruled by unaccountable dictatorial out of touch failed politicians/bureaucrats

That's why we have to reform the EU - to make it accountable, transparent and act in the interest of all people in Europe.

Otherwise, how do we tackle climate change and corporate power - issues so huge they threaten our species - both of which are global in scale, and require individual nations to act in unison?

Couple things about that. First, the specific part that was repealed was about "imagining" to overthrow the Crown. Many people considered that a violation of free speech in the UK anyway. The way I understand it is that it was illegal to say something like "I wish the queen was dead and someone else was on the throne." After the repeal, it makes comments like that legal but you still cannot do any actual treason. Besides, when it was published about that part of the law being repealed, a statement from your "Ministry of Justice" removed that publication and said "Section three of the Treason Felony Act 1848 has not been repealed"

Second, does the UK prime minister have the power to change laws? I ask because the President of the USA does not. All laws are passed by congress (which is both the Senate and the House of Representatives). The power of the President is actually very limited. He can appoint a new Supreme Court Justice and Veto a law if they do not have enough votes to make it veto proof.

The President is also the Commander in Chief. In that position, he has more power since he is in charge of the military. But he still cannot create or repeal any laws over here.
