Nosemonkey's EUtopia

In search of a European identity


It may still be more than a month before our Westminster overlords deign to return from their extensive summer hols, but in Brussels it’ll soon be back to business as usual. Deutsche Welle has a handy overview of some of the upcoming issues, from terrorism to the constitution, airline bans to Turkish membership, the Iranian nuclear programme to bras and panties. We can also expect a bit of fuss over the next day or so thanks to today’s Commission report to the European Parliament�s Fisheries Committee about serious member state infringements of the Common Fisheries Policy, (perhaps justifiably) one of the many ongoing obsessions of the eurosceptic crowd.
