Double-Whopper (Commentary)


The German Chancellor got her way, and the European Union moved closer to a split that may go far beyond the British decision to refuse consonance with its European partners. The December 8 and 9 meeting of the heads of state in Brussels will enter text books of European integration as the days where Britain again decided to step out of the joint boat of Europe, and where democracy landed a huge defeat. Merkel may have won the battle but Europe lost the war.
