Written in March 2007: The EU started life in circumstances that are almost unimaginable in today’s world and the Treaty of Rome committed members to economic and political integration that would be unacceptable to most nations in today’s world. In this sense, the Treaty was the bud whose leaves unfolded over 50 years into today’s European Union.
