The billion euro Babel

Cranmer has a great post about translation.

It is projected that next year the costs of translating speeches and documents into all the languages of the European Union will reach the astronomical sum of a billion euros.
So their modelling of the Euro Parliament on Babel was a good idea. When they did so however, they forgot how the story ends:
The Lord destroyed the Tower of Babel, and scattered the peoples over the face of the earth. Does such a fate await the European Union?
Well I have always thought of the other side as being a religion, but Serf would be pleased to be an agent of the almighty.
