Re: Dictionary anyone?
I'm glad but not surprised that someone got in pretty quickly with the fact the UK is much younger than 1000 years.
I would just like to make the point that prior to the Union, the constituent countries spent a great deal of time waging wars on each other. That is a pasttime that was engaged in by many European nations prior to the EC, too.
The 'EU brings stability and peace' line can be overdone but it is an important point.
