A fine Piece

An excellent piece in last Monday's Daily Telegraph from Ambrose Pritchard-Evens. Too fine a work to summarise, read the whole thing.
PS - Back in September 2002 I had the pleasure of shareing dinner with Ambrose and others in a fine bar and resturant in Strasburg. Ambrose was keen to find out from me which particular EU Regulation I thought had the most negative impact on British Business. I spent most of the third course expounding on the fact that it was the accumulative effect of so much legislation that is the barrier to business growth. Over coffee and a fine Claret I was able to explain that the single European market was a misnomer; it is in fact an EU wide customs union. Clearly both points are now well accepted.
