Quote Of The Day

From the marvelous Mary Ellen Synon on Van Rompuy's 'Nation State is a lie' speech:
But last night in Berlin, Van Rompuy showed what he really is. And that is, a dangerous, cynical man who intends that all of Europe should be turned into a vast version of Belgium, an invented country called Europe where the loyal feelings and patriotism of the ancient nations are suppressed -- all replaced with a European nationalism.
Van Rompuy is also deluded; you cannot impose an artificial construct or government on a people against their will without consequences. It always fails, usually like this.
