We Are All Narnians Now

[ #9766 ]
Dear Log,

«There was a great deal of intense negotiating over which countries actually qualified for the EU, and eyebrows have been raised at some of the new members, such as Estonia, Lithuania and, most of all, Narnia. Some objected that Narnia is not technically in Europe, but of course part of it is (well the wardrobe bit anyway), and so Narnia scraped in. Naturally there have been concerns about its human rights record, not to mention the rights of fauns and beavers, but Jack Straw rightly pointed out that the Snow Queen's record on turning her subjects into stone statues has actually improved in recent years. "The Snow Queen is gradually moving towards a more democratic and less wintry society and it is important that western leaders are seen to be keeping the wardrobe door open," he said. Further negotiations could take years, but it will seem like no time at all once the delegation is back home again.»

    • They will be in, I'm sure. It just takes time convincing the people that would like Europe to be some sort of christian empire. But they won't hold long.

      Interestingly enough, there was a project for some form of EU between the two WW and the definition of the potential membership was "any country at least part on the european continent that is also a member of the SdN [the former UNO]" and people objected in all newspapers of the time that that would leave Turkey out.

      Turkey also has some of t
