I live and go to school in a little village near Maastricht, which is a lovely old town with a rich Roman history. There is a wall that was built 2,000 years ago.

Europe fifty years on

THE 50th anniversary of the United Nations is an appropriate moment to look at the state of different regions of the world half a century after the end of the last great world conflict. So today we start a series of editorials by considering western Europe, which was lying in ruins in 1945, but has, since then, enjoyed its longest period of peace in modern times.

Europe's a long way from unity

IRONICALLY, now that the Maastricht Treaty has been ratified by all 12 member-states it has become obsolete and is unlikely to be implemented. The 30-year-old movement towards a federated Europe has come to a complete halt.

Risks in Maastricht

FOR the moment, Europe's political establishment is celebrating. The people of Denmark have accepted the Maastricht Treaty on European union, although in a version so riddled with exemptions it scarcely can be described as union at all.

In the week ahead

Denmark's referendum on the Maastricht treaty on Tuesday is the main event of the week.

Trade data from the US, Japan and Germany, plus a glut of British numbers, will also feature. There are meetings of the Bundesbank on Wednesday and the US Federal Open Market Committee on Tuesday.

Results from the Danish poll are expected late Tuesday night.

Another Major defeat

BY-ELECTION defeats are the price political parties pay for general election victories, so it would be unwise to begin writing Prime Minister Mr John Major's political obituary on the basis of the Conservatives' crushing defeat in Newbury and setbacks in local council elections on Thursday.

Major tangle over treaty

DOUBTLESS Maastricht will be on the conversational menu at Government House next week when Margaret Thatcher comes to grace the table of Chris Patten.

Quite a few people got incensed about Maastricht, the Treaty on European Union, this week when for most of us the whole tedious passage of the Bill to ratify it through parliament has become a turgid bore.

Maastricht links Western Europe

HARDLY a day goes by without some mention by the media of the word ''Maastricht'' in The Netherlands.
