Well Said That Man

Mick Hume:

But there is a big difference between Europe the continent, with its dynamic, civilised peoples, and the “legal personality” of Official Europe, a dead weight around the neck of the civilised world. Time to raise an argument not heard enough in this clichéd debate: for Europe, but not the EU.

The EU supra-state has become a bastion of all that is rotten in politics, its first instinct always to regulate, restrain and ban. The EU mindset is now the opposite of the spirit of the European enlightenment.

Gibbets outside the Berlaymont, here we come!

"Time to raise an argument not heard enough in this clichéd debate: for Europe, but not the EU."

Err, isn't that what *everyone* who opposes the EU says, *all of the time*?

I am pretty handy with knots, all that time in front of the mast...

Good point, John B.

e.g. UKIP hand out bumper stickers saying "Love Europe, hate the EU".
