Vegetarian Rib-Eye

By Andrew Stuttaford

EUObserver reports:
German philosopher Jurgen Habermas has called for EU countries to increase co-operation and the pooling of sovereignty in a speech at the Catholic university in Leuven. The 83 year old sociology professor urged member states to agree to “supernational” [supranational] democracy, with current nation states giving up further powers to Brussels.
Supranational democracy is, like vegetarian rib-eye, a contradiction in terms. Habermas is smart enough to know that, and sinister enough not to mind–however much he may try to conceal it.
