From my own British perspective, what is so remarkable about the French commentary is its lack of concern about constitutional checks and balances. There seems to be very little worry, at least among those who write in the newspapers, about the exercise of unbridled power by supposedly beneficent authority.
In a new piece (OK, it’s three weeks old) for the Library of Law and Liberty, Dalrymple notes the differences between the British and French views on the problems of the EU, at least as represented by the commentariat. Whereas the British blame bureaucracy and the political class, the French see it as a lack of regulation. But the most troubling thing to Dalrymple?
