Ok so ignore me when I make statements like that, I am not important anyway. I mean, if it were true, wouldn't there be more important people making such comments?
Ever heard of Roman Herzog?
Democracy is in danger because of the direction in which the European Union is developing, a former German president, Roman Herzog, said yesterday.He co authored a report with Lueder Gerken, director of the Centre for European Policy
Among their criticisms was that the German parliament was not involved in European Union legislation as required by the German constitution. They said the European Union was undergoing “creeping centralisation” and acquiring further powers, often without due justification.Wow, I guess they must be little Englanders, or Xenophobes or something :) , at least that's what I am called when I make similar statements.
Did anyone see this mentioned in any of the British Press, because I haven't seen it. Are we so insular, that we don't give a stuff about serious criticisms of the EU raised by a former senior statesman of one of the most important members? Hat Tip to Colin, for pointing out this story in the comments.
