Maintaining the backbone of the EU

Sorry about the slow posting: my section of Blogger appeared to be having, what we used to call at primary school, a spaz attack.

Anyway, a really great post on the new EU logo over at The Spine.
The EU has launched a new logo to mark its 50th anniversary. Said designer, Claude Paul Crumb, the logo ’symbolises the European Union as we’ve come to know it after all this time. It’s like a long long friendship you formed with somebody you never particularly liked in the first place. You get know their every habit, their every gesture, and even what they’re going to say before they say it. In a little way, it’s very similar to contempt and that’s the emotion I wanted people to feel whenever they look at it. Feeling contempt for your neighbours is exactly what it means to be European.’

Really excellent stuff! The rest of the site is definitely worth checking out too...
