EU Wipes England off the Map

...what monumental stupidity! Brussels has decided that to promote peace, old borders are to be abolished. The new plan will have transnational regions...they won't have powers, mind you. Can you spell disaster with a Capital D, boys and girls? (hat tip to Marcus). From The Telegraph. Oh, and the article was printed on the Feast of St. George.
The new European plan splits England into three zones that are joined with areas in other countries.

The "Manche" region covers part of southern England and northern France while the Atlantic region includes western parts of England, Portugal, Spain and Wales.

The North Sea region includes eastern England, Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands and parts of Germany.

A copy of the map, which makes no reference to England or Britain, has even renamed the English Channel the "Channel Sea".

Each zone will have a "transnational regional assembly", although they will not have extensive powers. However, the zones are regarded as symbolically important by other countries.
What's depressing is reading the comments posted by the readers who are in favor of such a stupid idea.

Finally the Manchian people will have their freedom!

A revival of the almost defunct Manchese language is overdue. Perhaps we will finally have a Manchese liturgy and government assistance to the struggling Manchese episcopacy.

As the old saying has it:

"'Budeure, bread, and greun cheise'
Is good English and good Manchese!"
