The answer to every EU problem is ‘ever closer union’

17 Aug

From: http://notasheepmaybeagoat.blogspot.com/2011/08/answer-to-every-eu-problem-is-ever.html

The BBC’s report on the Franco German conference includes some key lines:

‘The French and German leaders have called for “true economic governance” for the eurozone in response to the euro debt crisis.

Speaking at a joint news conference, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy urged much closer economic and fiscal policy in the eurozone.

Ms Merkel said that further integration would be a “step-by-step” process.

They also advocated a tax on financial transactions to raise more revenues.’

That’s the EU in a nutshell: the answer to every problem is ‘ever closer union’ and EU-wide taxation. “
