The EU may say stop being mean, but the truth is the EU isn’t a country or state. Though the EU wants to be seen as a sovereign superstate, the UK acknowledge the EU as an international organisation with sovereign nation-states within their ever-growing bloc. The EU is not sovereign. It’s the countries within the EU bloc that hold sovereignty. The big question is, has this diplomatic privilege spat between Britain and the EU exposed the EU for what it is, an international organisation?
