Nosemonkey's EUtopia

In search of a European identity

Two nutty anti-EU myths dispelled in one day

Myth 1: The EU blindly supports the climate change lobby (Oh noes! Teh Brussels bureaucrats am all Greenpeace activists!)

Erm: EU dismisses Brown green VAT plan
“Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s plan to slash VAT on environmentally-friendly goods has been given the thumbs down at an EU summit in Brussels”

Myth 2: The EU blindy supports Muslim interests (Oh noes! Teh Dhimmis am making teh EUrabia!)

Erm: EU solidarity over anti-Koran film
“Holland’s prime minister said he had won broad EU solidarity from the bloc’s leaders in case the expected release of an anti-Koran film by a maverick Dutch politician leads to violence”
