Apparently England isn't playing ball with France over the EU....


"Chirac has hit out at the UK for its insistence on sticking to "red lines" and not ceding power to Brussels over key issues such as tax and social policy.

"I fear we will not be able to progress as far as we should," Chirac said, also warning that the EU must "avoid being blocked by a single country.""

But British Prime Minister Tony Blair fired back a broadside on Friday at France and Germany, telling Chirac and German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder they could not steamroller their EU colleagues into agreement.

"We are operating in a Europe of 25 ... not six or two or one," the prime minister's spokesman told reporters.



I agree with Blair... the UK's stance all along has been that they do not want to be dictated by France's (and Germany's) policies. Bravo Tony.

Hey, great plot for a Sci-Fi novel. 30 years down the road, England will try to cecede from the EU, which will try to force them back in through military means and we will have to jump in bringing about WWIII?
