Andrew Duff MEP is a fervent federalist, and published this pamphlet last month arguing for the EU - or at least those countries within it which are willing - to move to a genuine federal economic government structure to better coordinate fiscal and monetary policy in a way which the markets and voters will find credible. He also proposes a new form of associate membership for those countries (such as, probably, the UK) that might not want to participate in the new federal structures, an inevitable consequence of one of his other proposals which is that the EU Treaties ought to be easier to amend. Andrew is in the avant-garde in these discussions in most of the EU (and the British debate on this largely takes place on another planet) but his proposals are in fact entirely sensible. I've spent the last week in Strasbourg working on an unrelated project with Andrew; in the end we didn't get the votes but it was worth trying.

    UK mailboxes aren't waterproof?! That seems like an odd design.
