Eurogibberish

Screen Shot 2016-03-29 at 19.10.53Gibberish, writes Dalrymple, is

the native tongue of European politicians.

The

European project

is

an excellent example, for what is the project referred to? It is a word bandied about whose precise, or even approximate, meaning is never vouchsafed to humble listeners or readers.

  • Is it a unified state? No.
  • Is it a federal state? No.
  • Is it a state at all? No.
  • Is it something other than a state? No.

What is it, then?

Dalrymple observes:

The uninitiated and the paranoid might think it is a slow, creeping coup d’état by a perpetual self-appointed class of bureaucrats and politicians who seek to bypass the tiresome necessity ever to consult anyone other than itself.
