There you go again, the EU isn't a distant third party we're an integral part of it. Therefore we work with others on designing ways of discharging responsibilites of common interest using a consistent approach and then we come home and implement. It is however telling that Brexiters all use language that suggests the EU is a third party controlling us, it ain't and never has been.
You can mention Galton's Ox, Parkinsons Law, the Peter Principle or the mythical man month all you like, in some cases they can be useful in encouraging critical insight, but the place to be looking is Westminster not Brussels.
