Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Unless I'm missing something, or have been criminally misinformed by the UK media, I thought the eurotunnel was  built from both ends?

and I didn't realise Democracy came from Australia

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

Democracy is one of the few things Australia has done right. There aren't many of them, what with its being an anglo country.

The UK dragged its heels on the eurotunnel and only did it after very careful cost-benefit analyses. Analyses which turned out to be wrong but that certainly doesn't retro-actively make their motivations altruistic!

How quickly people forget that the French had no problem getting financing for the Chunnel but the Brits refused to cough up a penny.
