1488TdC not in the list of Regions of the EU
- Apr 1, 2006I see with great delight that neither TdC nor any other British overseas
territory shows up in the list of 139 European Regions. This confirms my
view that Brussels doesn't know what it is doing when supporting the British
La Reunion, Martinique, Guadeloupe and French Guiana are in the list, for
obvious reasons: They are part of the "motherland". Not so Mayotte,
Saint-Pierre et Miquelon, French Poynesia, Nouvelle Caledonie and Wallis et
Futuna; those latter are either a "Collectivite departementale" or a
"Collectivite territoriale" or a "Territoire d'outre-mer".
You can also look at this mess from another angle: The British are the more
intelligent bunch: They know how to milk Brussels.
