Eurosceptics should visit a military cemetery, Jean-Claude Juncker said yesterday, as he warned that the “enormous stupidity” of two world wars could return to Europe.
The president of the European Commission appeared to mock David Cameron’s renegotiation, saying the Prime Minister was grateful for his aid in resolving his “self-induced problem”.
“Peace is never a sure thing. Anyone who thinks that peace is set in eternity is fundamentally wrong. And there is war again in Europe,” Mr Juncker said, referring to conflict in Ukraine.
He warned that the refugee crisis poses a risk to the “highly sensitive” Balkans follows conflicts in Kosovo and Bosnia.
“Europe gains whenever we point out that Europe is a major project for peace.
“Whoever does not believe in Europe, who doubts Europe, whoever despairs of Europe, should visit the military cemeteries in Europe.”
There is, of course, another way to approach this problem. Let’s go with Barroso’s comment, that the purpose of the EU is to stop Germany invading France. Again.
OK, so, a general rules that e-ciggies should be taxed like tobacco halts the Panzergruppen in what manner? Quite, so a general rule that e-ciggies should be taxed like tobacco is not part of the EU’s remit then, is it?
In short, if you want to use the pace reasoning then you can fuck off with 99% of what you’re actually doing.
