E Pluribus Update

Glenn Reynolds makes a point related to the ones presented below in today's InstaPundit .

He points out that Patten has an unfulfilled obligation to disclose whether he is speaking for a unitary (if not fully unified) Europe, or for some set of EU member states individually. I agree.

When it gets to the point where a politician has to make the kind of disclosure Glenn describes, it becomes pretty obvious that the member states are losing their individuality in favor of the EU ubermind.

We are fast reaching the point where Belgium, for example, should be considered a kind of special purpose, off-balance-sheet accounting fiction in the world of international relations.

Can calls to replace the separate EU member state seats at the United Nations in favor of a single EU seat be far behind?
