'A Timeless Canon of Values': German President Makes Plea for More Europe
German President Joachim Gauck made a passionate plea on Friday for greater European integration in the most important speech of his term in office thus far. He called on Britain to remain in the EU and said that Germany does not want to impose its will on the rest of its EU partners.

Wouldn't it be Wonderful if Everyone was Wonderful?
Fair enough, but figurehead politicians tend to give speeches like this.
More idealist than practical.
Ignore all the problems.
We can travel great distances without a passport.
We can buy lots of things without changing currencies.
All you have to do is subsume your country into an undemocratic superstate.
I don't know this man but I assume he's worthy enough. I'm not sure I know which planet he lives on though.
I love Europe and hold most Europeans I have met and worked with, in high regard but why everyone must sleep in the same bed to feel this way, totally escapes me.
I appreciate his kind words but'no thanks' Mr President.

Gauck On The Joys of "EU" Tourism
All Gauck has said in his Plea for "More Europe" is how wonderful it is to drive around going shopping. He must live in the same remote bubble as those in Brussels who want bigger salaries and "More Europe" (sounds like he wants to expand the geography of Europe!), and where all failed politicians look for their next job.
Unfortunately for us, the blinkered "More Europe" supranationalists with their loathing of democracy have not experienced at first hand the bitterness in Europe wrought by their "EU" in Portugal and Greece, which has taken hold in the larger neighbouring nations as the "EU"-ideology approaches its end game.
"Ever Closer Union - Ever Closer Hatreds".
What an achievement.
