Fog in Channel, Continent Cut Off

Dalrymple recently noticed that European weather forecasts ignore the weather in other European countries, and draws a conclusion in Salisbury Review:

Could it be that national weather forecasts are trying to tell us something about the European Union, namely that none of us fells truly European, and that no Frenchman gives a hoot what meteorological disasters happen outre-Manche or outre -Rhin. This indifference is heartily reciprocated (if indifference can be hearty), except in so far as no one wants his holidays in France spoiled by bad weather. Otherwise the French could all be drowned rats as far as the other nations are concerned.
