The EU is living in the past

Jose Barroso has been speaking to the IOD this afternoon.

He said that "A successful conclusion to the Uruguay Round could generate more than £100 billion of economic gains annually".

We keep saying that the EU is living in the past, but this is ridiculous. For the record - the Uruguay Round finished in 1994. The Doha round is the one which the EU is currently blocking through its unwillingness to budge on agriculture...

Well as Barrosso's main concern is that he gets to remain as the de facto head of the eu, it is hardly surprising that he doesn't want it to be seen that he is in any way capable of doing the job.
