Greece member European Union

The Absent Are In The Wrong

The French say: “The absent are always in the wrong.” The saying is quite correct, at least as far as the unification process in Europe is concerned. Greece has been a member of the European Union for almost four decades but, sadly, the parochialism of the Greek political elite (bar a few exceptions) has been a main feature of the country’s participation in the project.
