Queen calls for unity in Europe, says ‘division is dangerous’

The Queen has called for unity and warned that division between European nations is “dangerous”, ahead of a two-day EU summit in Brussels.

The comments follow heightened tensions with Russia as well as ongoing talks to avert a potential Greek exit from the eurozone.

They also come ahead of a meal which Prime Minister David Cameron plans to use to pave the way for talks over possible reforms, which will begin in the autumn.

The Queen, who is on a four-day state visit with Prince Philip to Germany, made the speech during a state banquet at German president Joachin Gauck’s residence at Bellevue Palace.

In our lives, Mr President, we have seen the worst but also the best of our continent. We have witnessed how quickly things can change for the better.

But we know that we must work hard to maintain the benefits of the post-war world.

We know that division in Europe is dangerous and that we must guard against it in the West as well as in the East of our continent. That remains a common endeavour.

– THE QUEEN

German Chancellor Angela Merkel was also present at the banquet.

Mr Cameron hopes to renegotiate the deal that Britain gets as part of the EU, ahead of a referendum on the country’s membership by the end of 2017.

While the issue is not on the formal agenda for the summit in Brussels, the programme for the event makes clear that he will be able to make his point during a meal tonight.

Responding to the Queen’s comments with his own speech, President Gauck stressed that the EU “needs Britain”, and as such it would support a “constructive dialogue” on the reforms requested.

We know that we need an effective European Union based on a stable foundation of shared values.

A constructive dialogue on the reforms Britain wants to see is therefore essential. As a good partner, Germany will support this dialogue.

For Britain is part of Europe. The European Union needs Britain.

– GERMAN PRESIDENT JOACHIN GAUCK
TAP – Looks like Nigel Farage has got to break with the ‘British’ Monarch.

    Tap I don’t follow your comment there. Are you saying theres a faction, possibly American hawk or whatever, wants farage and the UKIP to break from factions here and be instead acting more at the Americans behest? Though it is very confusing.

  2. Tapestry says:

    Not really. If The Queen is prepared to sell out Britain to the EU and she is, Farage has to observe that fact at some point. He won’t be making a full frontal anti-Royalist attack. He might tailor his remarks to be less supportive of the monarchy in future.

  3. Tom says:

    Absolutely. Tsipras is an EU stooge who is paid to pretend to the Greek people that he is fighting for them while in fact doing the exact opposite – running the country in the ground ready for EU asset-stripping, It’s very similar to Cameron, who does his job for the EU by pretending to be eurosceptic and seeking a deal while in fact doing the work of 10 europhiles and ensuring that we stay in the EU.
