Europe is like the United States

Which is the considered view of the German Deputy Finance Minister in conversation with Bloomberg yesterday.
Steffen Kampeter was trying to explain the EU and why it was that his bosses harsh words in France about turfing recalcitrant and bust EU states out of the room was unacceptable and not really what Mr Schauble thought,
Europe is much more than a “technical assembly,” Kampeter said in a Bloomberg Television interview in New York yesterday. “The biggest misperception is to understand Europe just as an economic project -- it’s a political project, like the United States.”

One has to say that that is pretty clear, direct, uncomplicated and above all honest.

Something no British politicain in any of the main parties dares to be.
