The New Roman Empire? 26 February 2007

Posted by David in Europe.

Boris Johnson thinks the reason so many are against Turkey joining the EU is because they are mostly Muslim. He quotes the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Carey: “Surely a European Union has to be more than economic? It has to have common values and so on…” So hey, I think, why have a European Union at all? Let’s just have free trade, like Switzerland and Norway. I don’t want common European ‘vales’ and ‘so on’ – whatever ‘so on’ is.

Boris also thinks the EU is like rebuilding the Roman Empire, which he seems to support (?). Oddly, quite a few see the EU like this. But why rebuild the Roman Empire, can’t we all be free? Bring back Boudicca I say.
