Brussels — Europe's unification fades for many as a goal of EC
A majority of people in Belgium, Britain, Denmark, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands see no benefit in pursuing the Common Market's original goal of unifying Europe, a poll said Monday. Of the Community's member nations, only Italians said they believed the unification of Europe would benefit the next generation.
The poll, done for the European Parliament and a group of newspapers, also said one-quarter of the people surveyed in the Community's 10 member nations want Britain out of the European Community. The greatest hostility toward Britain came from the French, with 41 percent saying the British should be out.
