The Euroengineer - his Formation

The Euroengineer - does he exist? I believe there have been a very few sightings of this rara avis but, as with the Loch Ness Monster and the Abominable Snowman, one is not quite sure of the facts. Mostly the sightings have been in continental Europe rather than in the British Isles, for reasons I will explain. Indeed, the Euroengineer should be neither a ‘monster’ nor ‘abominable’. If he does not yet exist, it is essential that we create him and cause him to breed, for our need is great. Although not a god he may be the salvation of Europe and Voltaire’s words seem very appropriate ‘Si Dieu n’existait pas, it faudrait l’inventer’. Professor P.B. Morice
