School students should be given a "European Union education" in the classroom to tackle "ignorance" and growing public Euro-scepticism, according to an election manifesto signed by Angela Merkel and eight other of Europe's leaders.

The European People’s Party (EPP), the EU’s biggest political grouping, is convinced such a programme would improve the public image of Brussels, which has never been lower.

Its manifesto for May’s European elections calls for the introduction of “EU education in schools across Europe in order to prepare the next generation for future challenges and to nurture a European approach”.

“Europe has been in crisis for more than five years. Many people, especially the young, do not foresee a positive future. Euroscepticism is growing,” the manifesto said.

“United, we can make sure that young people look at the future with optimism, hope and confidence.”

Chancellor Merkel is a “strong supporter” of the proposal, said officials, because she believes lessons about the EU “contribute to a common European identity and knowledge about history”.

Rather than scaling back the EU, the EPP will campaign around a five-year programme that will aim to transform the EU into “a genuine political union”.

The German Chancellor and the leaders of Ireland, Poland, Spain, Hungary, Portugal, Greece, Cyprus and Latvia launched the manifesto were in Dublin on Friday.

The call for a federal Europe and European school lessons will put the Prime Minister at odds with the German Chancellor, who is regarded as his key ally and further isolate Britain at a time when other EU countries are seeking closer integration.

In stark contrast to Germany and the bloc of EPP countries wanting "political union", Mr Cameron is seeking to repatriate powers from Brussels and last year the Government cut references to the EU from the National Curriculum because the lessons were seen as politically biased.

Syed Kamall, leader of Britain's Conservative MEPs, said the proposal showed that the Prime Minister had been right to pull the Tories out of the EPP, to set up their own grouping, while he was leader of the opposition five years ago.

“Schools should be equipping students with the skills and knowledge they will need to create a globally competitive Europe fit for the 21st Century - not navel-gazing over a 1950s vision of what Europe means,” he said.

Jean-Claude Juncker, the former prime minister of Luxembourg, was chosen by the EPP on Friday to be its leading candidate during the EU elections and as contender to be the next president of the European Commission in October this year.

Mr Juncker, 59, is a passionate supporter of the idea of a “United States of Europe” and chaired meetings of the eurozone at the height the EU single currency’s debt crisis until he resigned as Luxembourg’s leader amid a scandal over illegal phone-tapping.

“I am totally in favour. The knowledge of Europe has to be deepened in school programmes,” he said. “There is ignorance about the basics and this was evident during the so-called euro crisis.”

In 2011, Mr Juncker courted controversy when he was caught on tape saying that he “had to lie” in his role as chairman of the eurozone and that important economic decisions could only be taken in “dark secret rooms”.

"I'm ready to be insulted as being insufficiently democratic, but I want to be serious," he said on a video recorded by the EUobserverwebsite. "When it becomes serious, you have to lie."

Nigel Farage, the leader of Ukip, accused the alliance of European leaders of wanting "to squeeze children into a one-size-fits-all scheme of thought".

"After destroying national economies and losing the political argument the EU thought police now want the mind of your children in their hands," he said.



You could not make it up.

All i can think of when reading that is this quote.

He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future.

Adolf Hitler
 
It's all about education, init bruv.....

That's why the older generations have a completely different view on gay rights, gay marriage ect that younger ones.

It is no accident that UKIP's general support demographic is of persons >55 and over. They can recall a time before we went into Europe and want a return to such times. Younger persons have only known the EU so have no axe to grind. They take it all at face value, if it delivers benefit for all then maybe it is a good thing and they can live with the meddling and huge amounts of waste, considering it a fair return for what it delivers.

An example. The older group wonders why the hell is the UK taxpayer contributing to building motorways in say Romania or Portugal, they will ask well what have these Countries done for us. Younger people will take a different view in that well the UK has a good road infrastructure and that has benefited us enormously, why shouldn't we chip in to help less developed Countries improve their infrastructure after all we are all part of the same club and we all pay subs..

Now the rub is when does that 'education' become 'propaganda'? There can be a very fine line between the two and it is possible to 'brainwash' a whole population as a certain person called Adolf Hitler would testify too. Hitler though put down his political enemies as clearly with them out of the way it made his job must easier.

Which is why UKIP and other fringe parties serve a useful purpose as they can report the alternative view directly from the coal face.
 
I'm all for education.

Hopefully this EU edict will include the need for fiscal education; how to carry out audits, how to balance budgets and how to get rid of the corrupt apparatchik when budgets aren't met and when audits are ignored.

Maybe it will include education in democracy; how democracy works and how an unelected elite shouldn't be in charge of a budget few in Europe had a chance to vote for, either the people or the money.

You dream too much:wink:
 
If the EU is to become a German Empire then the lesser nations must be educated to become good German citizens. Every empire since the Romans has done something similar.

geezer

Get the gist of your argument however I think those educated during the last years of Labour who would be natural good little EU citizens are begining to wake up and smell the coffee and asking why don't we have jobs to go with our degrees, why is rent so high, why cant I get on the property ladder, why are we so much in debt and much more. They are going to be the generation abandoned and failed.

Younger people will take a different view in that well the UK exploited them with Imperialistic Empires, stole their diamonds, gold and tea and enslaved the poor Portugalese in order to sell them to evil Merkins. As for the poor, noble Romanian Travellers Peoples, we held the doors of the ovens open for the Nazis (related to the Royal Family by the way) until good old Uncle Joe made us stop.

^ but they have been brainwashed at school by their Marxist teachers to blame the evil Tories for all their ills.
 
In some EU countries they'd be better off simply washing their children........

The Germans are making us introduce a water tax so we won't be able to afford a wash soon.

The Brussels Politburo's institutions will probably produce lesson books on the New Histories of Europe, and how the European Union won the 'Great Erupean Civil War 1939 to 1945', and also how the European Uninion has not only kept the European Peace, but the Peace across the whole wide world. :p:)
 
Look, I know it takes you a while to get around nowadays but quoting and replying over 2 years later?

Never underestimate the ability of some ARRSE members to work themselves into a spittle-flecked rage at all things European. No matter how old or, indeed, full of shit.

Probably.
