Truth is, that is in fact the exact opposite. The EU is the adult in the room, dealing with a mentally retarded child. The eu nations were the only ones to legislate over urgent ways to guarantee the rights of UK citizens within the EU in case the UK goes full crazy (see,France or Spain or Belgium for UK retired people, or healthcare, or emergency banking authorizations). In fact, the EU nations did prepare for the worst in order to SAFEGUARD the rights of UK citizens while the UK did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. If this is supposed to be an example, then this is the worst example ever because the EU did everything it could to PROTECT the uk citizens FROM the UK's very own insanity and decisions, safeguarding their rights and advantages within the EU.
