We are living in the longest ever known period of European peace primarily because the warring powers are talking together rather than murdering one another.
The annual cost of that peace is miniscule compared to the price of an all out war.
Our generation knows what it is to endure the agony of War; tens of millions of lives destroyed.
Being linked to NATO has helped but no rational personal would can deny that “Peace” is the greatest dividend our membership has given us.
Our subscription to “Europe” is worth every penny, however, we must improve the running of the
movement to make it more efficient.
The symbol of a Dove added to the centre of the circle of stars in the European flag would emphasize the Peace dividend.
