Europe Day 2008

Today is May 9 2008, Europe Day.



I'm a great advocate of European unity and co-operation.
I'm proud to be a European and actually consider myself European first and British after - English comes a long way down the list and well below right handed, vegetarian, blue eyed, lazy, sensitive, friendly, sometimes enthusiastic, creative, daft, thirsty, book-loving, gentle.....need I go on. I don't share the view that seems to be prevalent in my homeland, the xenophobic 'Little Englander' approach to our neighbours within the continent of Europe. We're all in this together and the sooner we wise up and realise this and start working together for the common good, the better. I wish my nation would look to the east with a committed attitude, after all it's who we are and where most of us came from. I live in a nation of immigrants, we all came from somewhere else. That is shown in my ancestry and my genetic make-up, I'm a European.

Happy Europe Day
