...really, really big. I can't quite believe the irony, which would be delicious if it were not so painful. Here it is:
Mrs. Thatcher's dream, which was to destroy socialist Europe--the dream for which she was prepared to quit being Prime Minister (and she really liked being Prime Minister)--has been fulfilled. Fulfilled by a European country. Fulfilled, in fact, by the European country whose mission was to bring everyone into closer political union via the backdoor of monetary union. The nation whose European ambitions were roundly opposed and associated with the ambitions of the past (WW2, WW1), by the Prime Minister who most channeled Churchill.
Germany has done what Mrs. Thatcher only dreamed of.
