Tony Blair’s much heralded memoirs published last week, contain a warning about occasions “where we confuse the state with the interests of the people”.

Isn’t this the criticism that federalists have been making of the intergovernmental approach to Europe all along?  The EU is much more than merely an association of its member states, it is a union of its states and citizens.

Put the interests of the citizens first, and then see how relevant concepts like national sovereignty really are.
