Never forget: Independence Day is something to celebrate

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

– Declaration of Independence, July 4th, 1776

This kind of obfuscation and blame game is exactly what we have come to expect from the EU. Surely, if significant differences remain, both parties should be working overtime and not simply clocking off early and leaving the same unresolved issues for the next round of talks, which are set to take place in London next week.
