“A decade ago in her book Statecraft: Strategies for a Changing World, Margaret Thatcher famously described the European project as perhaps the greatest folly of the modern era. Today, a large percentage of continental Europeans would agree with the Iron Lady, as the EUs delusions of grandeur start to crumble. Her ideas have triumphed over those of Jacques Delors and the architects of a doomed Eurofederalism.
Lady Thatchers dire warnings of the dangers of a European superstate were years ahead of her time, but never more relevant than they are today, as Europe faces a stark choice between the inevitable decline of ever-closer union, or a return to national sovereignty and democratic accountability.”
