European elections: Ceterum censeo

With a piffling 19 EU member states to vote today, the BBC has – in an act of rare courage – allowed Mark Mardell to re-post his allusions about the sack of Carthage: Invasion relived (6 June 2009).



“Ceterum censeo Carthaginem esse delendam”. The words of Cato the Elder must still hit a raw nerve in the former Empire.

Moreover, I think that the European Union has to be destroyed, is as tenaciously proclaimed by many in Great Britain today.

There have always been people who see only zero sum games.
