The Blair alternative

To counterbalance the spigot of rubbish that is Jacques Chirac’s mouth (you can tell I am bitter about this man), I thought I would put up a link to a speech that Tony Blair gave to the European Parliament in June 2005. It is the most eloquent defense of Europe I have heard in a long time; and it is also a speech that was, sadly, quickly forgotten. With Germany in political turmoil, it is unfortunate that Jacques Chirac has taken up the task of speaking for Europe; if you wonder what an alternative view looks like, check out this speech.
