Typical bullying arrogance in this statement by Regional Policy Commissioner Danuta Huebner.
The European Union's failure to revive its constitution risks dividing the bloc and undermining the richer old members' willingness to finance development of the poorer newcomers.Translation: Vote for the treaty or we will stop paying you money. She does offer hope however:
Unless the EU agrees on a treaty to replace the charter rejected by Dutch and French voters in 2005, a group of countries may decide to move ahead with integration faster than others.Which is fine by me. If they want to push for greater serfdom, let them. Lets break this taboo that we all have to be in the same prison cell.
Note: Ms Huebner is a Pole, who is threatening her own countrymen on behalf of Brussels. Just shows that Brussels makes traitors of them all.
