The end of week quote

Extracted from Harry Mead's column, The Northern Echo Wednesday 16 May :

Meanwhile, if Tony Blair genuinely regards Britain as the world's greatest nation, perhaps he will cease pursuing ever-closer union with Europe. Perhaps, he will allow us a vote on the EU's Constitution which, following its rejection by referendums in France and the Netherlands, he is still keen to promote, by representing intended reforms, including a provision for the EU to have its own foreign minister, as simply a tidying-up exercise.

What irony if history records that the Prime Minister who hailed Britain as 'the greatest nation on earth' capped his valedictory pronouncement to that effect by finally sealing Britain's fate as part of a federal state.

Quite, Editor
