Regarding ‘Sports policy could help build ‘European identity’‘:
Don’t ask what Europe can do for sport but what sport can do for Europe.
Promoting European identity and unity through sporting events does not require much funding!
For example, providing EU-27 national athletes with European flags and badges to be worn along with national ones at the 2012 Olympic Games in London would not ruin the EU budget…but would do more for European citizenship than many previous costly ‘communications’ operations.
