EU 2010. A work of political imagination by Charles Grant of the Centre for European Reform. He imagines a world in which the European Union has 26 members and is still expanding eastwards. Its economy is growing faster than that of the US. The EU's armed forces have intervened to secure peace in the Balkans and in Africa. The European Commission has merged with the Council of Ministers. The court decisions of one EU country are recognised in all the others. In this very British dream UK politicians dominate the new political structures of Europe and Sir Tony Blair is tipped to become the first directly elected president of the European Commission.
