Today is the (Euro) Day 

Today is the National Day even less celebrated than St George’s Day. It is Europe Day. Not much dancing in the streets anywhere, I notice.

Which is a pity. For people of my generation, determined to make sure we didn’t repeat our parents’ experiences of European Civil Wars, the European Adventure is still something much more than a fishy fudge on marginal agriculture. So just a small reminder of part of the European ambition.

“The European Union is at the service of its citizens. While keeping their own specific values, customs and language, European citizens should feel at ease in the "European home".
I at least am delighted and relieved to feel 'at home'.

Maybe we can make better use of this service for our own communities?
