  • There'll be nowhere to run from the new world government
    conclusion of all this grandiose talk of global consensus as unquestionably desirable if there was no popular choice about approving supranational legally binding agreements what would happen to dissenters who did not accept their premises on climate change for example when there was no possibility of fleeing to another country in protest Was this to be regarded as the emergence of world government And would it have powers of policing and enforcement that would supersede the authority of elected national governments In effect this was the infamous democratic deficit of the European Union elevated on to a planetary scale And if the EU model is anything to go by then the agencies of global authority will involve vast tracts of power being handed to unelected officials Forget the relatively petty irritations of Euro bureaucracy welcome to the era of Earth bureaucracy when there will be literally nowhere to run But you may say however dire the political consequences surely there is something in this obsession with global dilemmas Economics is now based on a world market and if the planet really is facing some sort of man made climate crisis then that too is a problem that transcends national boundaries Surely if our problems are universal the solutions must be as well Well yes and no Calling a problem global is meant to imply three different things that it is the result of the actions of people in different countries that those actions have impacted on the lives of everyone in the world and that the remedy must involve pretty much identical responses or correctives to those actions These are separate premises any of which might be true without the rest of them necessarily being so The banking crisis certainly had its roots in the international nature of finance but the way it affected countries and peoples varied considerably according to the differences in their internal arrangements Britain suffered particularly badly because of its addiction to public and private debt whereas Australia escaped relatively unscathed That a problem is international in its roots does not necessarily imply that the solution must involve the hammering out of a uniform global prescription in fact given the differences in effects and consequences for individual countries the attempt to do such hammering might be a huge waste of time and resources that could be put to better use devising national remedies France and Germany seem to have pulled themselves out of recession over the past year and the US may be about to do so while Britain has not These variations owe almost nothing to the pompous overblown attempts to find global solutions they are largely to do with individual countries under the pressure of democratic accountability doing what they decide is best for their own people This is not what Mr Brown calls narrow self interest or beggar my neighbour ruthlessness It is the proper business of elected national leaders to make judgments that are appropriate for the conditions of their own populations

  • EU celebrates its 50th birthday
    on the EU s stalled constitution rejected by French and Dutch voters in 2005 But correspondents say the statement will mask divisions among EU members We the citizens of Europe have united for the better says the draft statement known as the Berlin Declaration The statement drawn up by the EU s German presidency hails some of the EU s achievements over the past 50 years including open borders the common market and the euro and an end to Europe s Cold War divisions The BBC s Oana Lungescu in Berlin says there is no explicit mention of the most divisive issues future enlargement to admit Turkey and the Balkan nations and the EU constitution Just weeks before the French presidential elections and faced with stiff opposition from the Czech Republic Poland and Britain Angela Merkel has chosen the vaguest of terms our correspondent says A single coded reference to the constitution talks about placing the EU on a renewed common basis before the 2009 elections to the European Parliament Great achievements Dutch Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende said it was best to avoid the word constitution It s a very good declaration and what we need now is a change of treaties he said Germany hopes that a new text can be agreed by the end of the year or early next year at the latest so that it can be ratified by mid 2009 Many European leaders believe the project will come unstuck again if member states decide to ratify the treaty by referendum But a poll by a British Eurosceptic think tank Open Europe suggests that three quarters of Europeans would like a referendum on any new treaty giving more power to the EU According to the poll carried out in all 27 EU countries 41 of

  • A FEDERAL EUROPE IS NOW 'INEVITABLE’
    little choice but to merge into a single political unit I think that one day the European people will have a confederation Trichet told a conference in Paris If a country doesn t take or is incapable of taking the required decisions it should be possible to take them from the centre of the single currency One can imagine a federal government In chilling news he also warned that the eurozone s economic crisis is deepening His remarks will fuel talk that the EU is splitting in two with a unified eurozone and an outer track including non euro countries like Britain Investors across Europe were spooked yesterday by a combination of fears over the state of the global economy and Europe s debt crisis sending stock markets plunging by up to 4 They recovered some ground in early trading today but soon fell again with only London s FTSE 100 closing in positive territory as bargain hunters sought value in depressed UK stocks The FTSE closed up 1 15 at 5 161 43 but the mood was more downbeat on the continent The Dax in Frankfurt closed down 0 9 at 5 199 09 and the Cac 40 in

  • Why Eurozone should become United States of Europe, by David Cameron
    nations George Osborne yesterday urged governments in the single currency nations to follow the remorseless logic of further financial fusion But he suggested there was no immediate prospect of major treaty renegotiation that would allow Britain to try to claw back some powers already transferred to Brussels The Chancellor and I have both said that the logic of monetary union is a greater fiscal union and we see the eurozone countries moving in that direction Mr Cameron said I don t think we should stand in the way of them making some progress Eurosceptics insist Britain must demand concessions and exemptions from the union in exchange for standing back Mr Cameron appearing before the liaison committee of senior MPs suggested that opportunity might come further in the future if a new treaty is deemed necessary He raised the possibility of seeking to extract the UK from limits on working hours Bill Cash the Eurosceptic Tory MP who chairs the Commons European scrutiny committee told the Prime Minister that while he had certain reservations about the EU it was clear that he was actually rather an enthusiast for keeping the union together through integration Mr Cameron insisted he was a practical Eurosceptic but warned of economic disaster for Britain if the euro is allowed to collapse He also rejected calls for either an in out referendum on membership of the EU or one on integration To say you have to have a referendum in Britain about something other countries are doing and going ahead with anyway I think would be rather an odd approach he said Today Germany s constitutional court is due to decide whether the country s participation in the rescue of Greece Ireland and Portugal with huge EU bailouts breached its laws Economists and politicians bringing the legal
