Greetings,

I can only shake my head at the way people conflate Europe, which is a continent... and the European Union, which is supra-national political and economic union of certain European countries.

I guess Neil was a bit of a trend-setter in this regard.

Retro. :)

Neil is correct of course that the UK only became part of Europe in his lifetime in a swap deal with Burkina Faso.
