Do I detect more than a whiff of jealousy in that remark.

Had the UK, under Churchill, not decided to sit on the sidelines during the early days of the European Coal and Steel community, and properly engaged with the 6 nations at that time, the UK would have been involved in making the rules, and by now may well be at the heart of what is now the EU. Sadly, as normal these days, we sat on the sidelines, and the rest is, I'm afraid, history.
