Excerpts from the article:
“Tomorrow, as the EU’s leaders gather in Berlin to celebrate the end of that wall, they will also celebrate the rise of a new one – a wall they have built around themselves, that separates Europe’s politicians from all their subject peoples.”
The article is more UK centric than European but the ramifications apply to all nations under the European banner.
