EU consulates

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

The European Federation is pressing ahead with its plans to introduce EU consulates around the world.

The consulates were part of the EU constitution which was rejected in a referendum by France and the Netherlands – both traditionally eurofederalist countries although my Dutch friends tell me that our clog wearing friends are rapidly cooling to the prospect fo further EU federalism.

The Road to EU Serfdom asks what purpose the EU consulates will serve as it is traditional for travellers abroad to use the consulate of a friendly nation if they can’t find one of their own – surely this is a duplication?  I think we all know the answer to that one.  The EU consulates will be a duplication but then having individual consulates for each member state is even more of a duplication so we may as well just have EU consulates instead and get rid of our own.
