The Financial Times Does History 

Superhead on the front page of today's Financial Times: "Europe Reunified". Now, I know they're talking about the accession of 10 new members to the EU, but not for nothing is the FT known as the voice of the European elite.

When, other than under Napolean and possibly Hitler, was Europe ever unified before? I remember a "Yes, Minister" where Sir Humprey informed the minister of the existence of an award presented to that leader who had done the most to promote the unification of Europe. (Remember, this was the mid-80s.) It was called the "Napoleon Prize."
