Briti konservatiivne ajaleht kirjutab nii. Kui ma ausalt ütlen, siis meie EL-ga liitumise ajal polnud mina isiklikult tuttav superriigi loomise ideedega või föderalismi plaanidega. Ka ei kuulnud ma midagi sellest poolt ja vastu debattides.
…..But in November 2015 it is Jacques Delors and his successors who seem on the wrong side of history.
Across Europe, anti-EU parties are on the rise.
In Poland, the anti-EU Law and Justice Party just won the general election.
In Sweden, the anti-EU Sweden Democrats are the most popular party.
In Holland, the anti-EU Dutch Freedom party are top.
In Italy, the anti-EU Northern League have doubled their support in just a few months.
In France, the Front National’s Marine Le Pen looks as though she could shrug off her father’s toxic legacy and become the next French President on a deeply anti-EU manifesto.
These days you don’t even have to be in the EU to be anti-EU.
In Switzerland, the anti-immigration Swiss People’s party just won the biggest share of the vote in the October election.
How things have changed!
Twenty-five years ago, a female leader of a great European nation, Margaret Thatcher, was hounded from office because she was too anti-EU.
And today a female leader of a great European nation, Angela Merkel, is losing popularity with every passing day because she is so fanatically pro-EU.
Today it is the pro-Europeans who look like men and women out of time. And why?
Because the European dream has now become a living nightmare.
Because of Jacques Delors, Europe has the failed currency of the Euro, stifling economic growth among its wretched members and condemning generations of unemployed young Europeans to move abroad for work……….
