Germany has unveiled their planned “trans-national” regions which they will propose when they take over the EU presidency in January. They have also promised to revive the EU Constitution which was rejected in referenda in France and the Netherlands – both pro-EU countries.
The new euroregions will cross national boundaries in an attempt to destroy the borders between member states and foster a European national identity. A German minister called Wolfgang Tiefensee is quoted as saying “There is the great hope underlying the goal of a United Europe that we can overcome old borders.” The best map I’ve seen today is, I’m afraid, in the Sun. Apologies in advance for linking to the gutter press but needs must – The EU’s Mad Map.
Wolfgang, Schieben Sie Ihre Karte auf Ihren Arsch.
