I was walking pass a news stand this morning when I noticed the above headline on the front page of the Daily Mail. I felt compelled to buy the paper, just so I could find out what dastardly experiments were being carried out.
Apparently school children are being shown videos pointing out the advantages of being a member of the EU. I'm assuming that the videos don't make mention of all those member states that require bailing out to the tune of billions
I found it hard to be as outraged as the Mail writer. Sure, Brussels often go too far in its power grabs but most economists seem to agree that being IN, warts and all, is better than being OUT.
The Mail then went on to feature other examples of EU over reach like the story about the blocked deportation of an radical Muslim activist. Even when the EU did something right in another story it was a case of 'uncommon common sense'. With some people/newspapers you just can't win
It was kind of ironic, at least to me, that a newspaper that was sooo full of stories that had an anti-EU slant should be accusing the EU of 'brainwashing' British children when that was what they were doing to their readership.
Anyway, should we educate our children to be ethusiastic Europeans?
