Why the British shunned the European superstate

Screen Shot 2016-06-27 at 23.11.50Dalrymple writes that the precise nature of the so-called European Project is

never spelt out or even demanded.

However, the purpose of the project is clear. It is

the creation of a United States of Europe whose main object is to be powerful.

This empire-building, Dalrymple notes,

is the obsession of the European political class, not of most of the people.

To create a unitary European state in the hope that identity will follow

seems to me to court a Yugoslav-type dénouement.
