The Times on euroblogging
The Times reports on Margot Wallström's Blog and how the comments are dominated by eurosceptics
Sometimes the comments descend into English nationalism. A contributor called Kissingengland listed triumphs from the Magna Carta to the defeat of Fascism, adding: “This free, unconquered nation of mine, which has nourished, defended and preserved its institutions and liberties through eight centuries of continental despotism and warmongering, has nothing to gain from suborning itself to the inferior political structures of the EU.”
Descend, Descend? Those truths are in the eyes of The Times obviously a descent from the high lofty ideals of Europe - bastards.
But the article makes me smile with the the arrogant self-delusion of Ms Wallström’s spokesman: “It’s true a lot of it comes from the UK. It’s a pity we get so many comments from people who seem to be very eurosceptic. It proves those in favour are the silent majority .”
