Remember when the EU was supposed to bring Europe closer together?

It appears Spain didn’t get the memo. As the Spaniards suffer under policies designed not to bring them prosperity but to keep them trapped in the single-currency eurozone, their feckless leader has embarked on a typical distraction campaign aimed at…fellow EU member Britain (Telegraph), replete with new art celebrating a potential invasion of Gibraltar and mass slaughtering of Britons there (Telegraph).

I don’t remember the Brusselian Empire predicting such strife as a consequence of “ever closer union,” but then again, Britain still refuses to join the single currency, so perhaps that makes Spain’s bloodthirsty jingoism OK.

In any event, the fact that Madrid feels strong enough to lay into London but weak enough to kowtow to Brussels tells us all we need to know about the state of the EU…and it’s not good.
