A Hoary Old Chestnut

Yet again a European politician is warning us that if the euro collapses then so will “Europe” and the continent will descend back into the dark ages of war, insurrection and riots as a result. This time it’s French Foreign Minister Alain Juppé employing the scare tactics.

These warnings just don’t work any more. The words have been so mis-used and over-used that they have lost all meaning.  The EU and its Commissioners (and those behind it – UN) are so deliberately deaf that they refuse to entertain the notion that they are the cause of the friction. Their answer is always more EU rather than less and their arguments defy all logic.

One of the more interesting aspects of this post is that the information came from Open Europe (link above), a pro-EU think tank that’s probably followed avidly by the likes of Cameron – those who believe in the ‘being in Europe but not run by Europe’ twaddle. There never can be such an arrangement, it’s either in or out.

Open Europe say they “don’t approve” of the Greeks inserting a swastika into the EU flag; I wonder what they’d make of this:

  1. From your title I thought that this was going to be a post about Cathy Ashton.
