Colin Teese on Europe (letter)


by John R. Barich

News Weekly, July 2, 2005
Sir,

Once again, Colin Teese (News Weekly, June 18) gives a perceptive view of the European Union constitution-making process.

However, he has omitted to mention three problem areas:

1) Turkey's proposed membership was objected to by a significant proportion of Dutch and French people who see its entry as a dilution of the Western ideals; Pope Benedict XVI, as Cardinal Ratzinger, has been on record as opposing Turkey's membership.

2) The refusal to have Europe's Christian origins recognised in the proposed constitution would have alienated a section of the voters.

3) At least three countries, including Italy, are far from happy with the new currency, the Euro.

In the Italian Parliament, a private member's bill has called for a return to the lira. Britain, of course, has steadfastly refused to surrender the pound.
