[11/03/2005] EU Superstate: from the horses’ mouths

Truth from Europhile German and Spanish leaders on the EU


German Europe Minister: The EU Constitution is "the birth certificate of
the United States of Europe".

Spanish Foreign Minister: "We are witnessing the last remnants of national

Hans Martin Bury, the German Minister for Europe, said during a debate in
the Bundestag that, "This Constitution is, in spite of all justified calls
for further regulations, a milestone. Yes, it is more than that. The EU
Constitution is the birth certificate of the United States of Europe." (Die
Welt, 25 February 2005)

He also contradicted claims by British Foreign Secretay Jack Straw that the
Constitution would "draw a line" under EU integration. Bury said, "The
Constitution is not the end point of integration, but the framework for -
as it says in the preamble - an ever closer union."

Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos was interviewed this week
by the EU funded think-tank "Café Babel". Moratinos was asked, "Does
accepting the European Constitution mean a surrender of member states'
sovereignty?" He replied, "Absolutely. The member states have already
relinquished control
of certain economic and social competences, including justice, liberty and
security. Now the difficult part is approaching: the giving up of
sovereignty in the dual arenas of foreign affairs and defence." He argued
that, "The post of European Minister for Foreign Affairs is revolutionary."

Moratinos stated: "The concept of traditional citizenship has been bypassed
in the 21st Century. We are witnessing the last remnants of national
politics" (28 February 2005).
