The sovereignty of Van Rompuy

'The time of the homogenous nation-state is over… The national and the European interest can no longer be separated; they coincide… We have together to fight the danger of a new Euro-scepticism. This is no longer the monopoly of a few countries. In every Member State, there are people who believe their country can survive alone in the globalised world. It is more than an illusion: it is a lie!'
European President Herman Van Rompuy in a Berlin speech delivered today.
