RFH with Duncan Llewellyn and Sarah Law, teachers at Kings School.
On July 2nd, a group of pupils from Kesteven and Grantham Girls’ School, Margaret Thatcher’s old school, together with others from Kings School Grantham, came to Brussels on a visit. Students of economics, they seemed to have a good grasp of optimal currency areas, and customs unions versus free trade areas. Some also studied history. They were currently working on 19th Century Germany, and were very comfortable on Bismarck and the Zollverein. I was able to draw comparisons between the unification of Germany in the 19th century and the EU integration process in the 20th.
I sent them on their way with DVDs, my new climate leaflet, and contact details to enable them to order my newsletter. A pleasure to meet a group so interested and well-informed — and with such important political connections!
