Calls for 'United States of Europe'

London Daily Telegraph

A campaign for the European Union to become a 'United States of Europe' would be the "best weapon against the Eurosceptics", one of the most senior officials in Brussels has said, writes Bruno Waterfield.

Viviane Reding, vice-president of the European Commission, has called for "a true political union" to be put on the agenda for EU elections this spring.

Ms Reding's vision would transform the EU into a superstate, relegating national governments and parliaments to a minor political role, equivalent to that played by local councils. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
