Cameron in Davos: “if Europe is about ever-deepening political union, with ever-deepening political institutions, then it’s not the organization for us.”

I am writing this column having just left Congress Hall in Davos after British Prime Minister David Cameron’s own speech on “Britain in the World.” 

The core issue, he insisted, is that “if Europe is about ever-deepening political union, with ever-deepening political institutions, then it’s not the organization for us.”

“The final goal,” Helmut Schlesinger, the head of the German Bundesbank, explained in 1994, “is a political one … to reach any type of political unification in Europe, a federation of states, an association of states or even a stronger form of union.”

In this agenda, “the economic union is [merely] an important vehicle to reach this target.”

For 5,000 years, since the first states were created in what is now southern Iraq, governments have been using violence to create political unity
