Duff Message on Europe
Speaking in the debate, Lib Dem leader Andrew Duff, the President of the Union of European Federalists said; ""We all remember the blue flag with the yellow stars in the enormous demonstrations which broke communism and set these countries on the road to EU membership. We all remember the playing of the anthem at the Brandenburg Gate after the fall of the Berlin Wall.. because the symbols inspired the hearts and emotions of ordinary European citizens."
Strangely I don't remember the EU flag being waved at the demonstrations, I have searched Google images and Youtube and can't find any demonstrations then which feature the flag - can you? He couldn't be mistaken could he?
"The Liberal message is that only a stronger and reformed EU can tackle the insecurity of the financial markets, the problem of climate change and the threat of a more assertive Russia. The true British interest lies in a strong Europe - and not in the whingeing and isolationism we get from the Tories."
At least that is clear, he couldn't be mistaken could he?
