Ségolène urges Britain to choose between Europe and America (David Rennie, 20/11/2006, Daily Telegraph)

Ségolène Royal, the Socialist candidate for the French presidency, wants Britain to choose between being a "vassal" of the United States, and embracing a French-led drive for European integration, her adviser on Europe has revealed. [...]

Britain would be asked to sign up to the new treaty, but if it rejected calls for increased protectionism, an EU foreign minister, convergence on tax rates and moves to create a European army, then France and her allies would agree a treaty among themselves, he said.


Forget America for a moment, why would Britain choose Europe over India?

European integration? Into the umma?

France barely accepted Maastricht when it was put before the voters. What does she want to integrate into now?
