E.U. : pro or against political union?
There are some things to be considered before answering this question. EU is already slowly moving towards becoming a political union. The potential problem with political union is how would the interests of all the member countries be represented. For example, according to the Lisbon treaty EU Council will have less members and they will represent the interests of the major countries more. Lobbying is already taking place at EU level and there are more and more directives coming from EU through that way. And that affects all member states.

On one hand a EU centralised government could be more effective in fighting with corruption for instance because the main decisions will be coming from a mixed (nationality wise) government. On the other hand it's easier to affect one government than 27 separate governments if we speak about the interests of major companies for example.

In general I'd say I'm pro further EU integration but it's hard to make a definite answer without the specific details.
