Quote:Delusional Van Rompuy proclaims: EU is the fatherland and motherland of democracy.
If anyone still refuses to believe that European Union elites suffer from delusions of grandeur, look no further than Herman Van Rompuyâ€™s statement ahead of his speech yesterday to the UN General Assembly. In a video message, officially transcribed by his office and published here, the president of the European Council proclaims that the European Union is â€œthe fatherland, or the motherland of democracyâ€, while â€“ ludicrously â€“ taking some of the credit for the downfall of Colonel Gaddafi:
This has to be one of the most ridiculous statements by an EU official in living memory, and the competition for that is intense. And I donâ€™t think Van Rompuy is referring here to the mother of Parliaments in Great Britain, or the birth of democracy in Greece. He no doubt genuinely believes that the European Union itself is the foundation slab of modern democracy, despite the fact that there is nothing at all democratic about the European project.

Van Rompuy should have said EU is the Disneyland of democracy.
I seriously doubt anyone even slightly politically awake would share his dubious sentiment.
