Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I like how they castigate the EU for being elitist:
...the corresponding failure of elitist supra-nationalists...
...rather than an elitist and supra-national approach...

Yet, is there anything about this whole screed that doesn't scream elitism? Countries who've taken their responsibilities, bailing out the laggards, qualifying agendas as "anti-reformist", wresting control of the agenda. They don't mind elitism at all, so long as they're part of the elite.

It's part of their consistent plan to capture words and twist their meaning beyond recognition.

See: freedom, reform, security, compassion, etc...
