Europe: Phobic, Sceptic, Schizo, Phile?

November 1, 2012

I was brought up in a deeply pro-European house. My father, born just before the war, had been profoundly affected by what he saw being unearthed at Belsen and Treblinka, Auschwitz etc and was rightly persuaded by the pro-European politicians of the 1950’s and 1960’s who made the very persuasive argument that in order to […]
