Another article on the EU today in the IHT. This time its the turn of Giles Merritt, secretary-general of Friends of Europe. He makes a worthwhile point out at the start about the declining population of Europe, this is going to lead to Europe’s demise in my view and the efforts he speaks of are futile. Athens experienced the same population stagnation in ancient times and was worse off for it.
Merritt is a good example of a European mindset I dislike, one of xenophobia, imperialism and conservatism. With people like him arguing for a strengthened Commission, an executive that is not even elected, I will remain a euro-sceptic.
