Buzek's dreaming

I see that the President of the European Parliament is trying to get down with the kids on his twitter stream today,

That is the slightly thredbare, hippy drippy kids of the 60's and early 70's.

How did Lennon's dream go?

Oh yes,
Imagine there's no countries,
It isn't hard to do
Well I have a dream as well Mr Buzek.

One in which the people of my country get to decide on their own future democratically. Where all the politicians of the countries of Europe respond to the hopes and fears of their people, trade with each other and through trade improve the lots of their lives.

My dream at least is possible. Yours is merely destructive.

Buzek is obviously suffering from delusions of grandeur because he has just been awarded the

"Collier du Merite Europeen"

This collar looks like a real order or decoration from a real government but is, in fact, from something called the European Foundation which, on the internet at any rate, appears to be an offshoot of the European Development. Bank. With its dark blue ribbon It looks grand enough to hang someone in.
