Odds and Ends

The notion that an EU member isn't "its own country" is rather ridiculous. That's like saying that belonging in a club, sports team, political party etc. makes you less of an individual. As for the "punish" bit... The EU is a club, and clubs have rules. The rules apply to all members, and if you choose to leave the club you're no longer entitled to any of the benefits the members enjoy. Simple as that.
