Nosemonkey's EUtopia

In search of a European identity


It’s not often you get an accessible yet interesting programme on the EU appearing on the telly (cf. the abysmal shite that was How Euro Are You? a few weeks back), so tonight’s Panorama, Battle for Europe, came as a rather nice surprise. Read the overview in that link then – if you want a top-notch primer to the complexities of the on-going problem of the EU budget and economic reform presented in an easy to understand way that manages to avoid being either simplistic or patronising – head to the BBC’s website and watch it online. Well worth it if only to compare Jack Straw in interview to the various other high-up European politicians doing their talking heads bit – he comes across like a nervous idiot, desperately trying to bluff his way through an exam he forgot to revise for. Great fun.
