No, despite the title I have not suddenly become a eurosceptic wanting to walk over the EU. This is far more literal. On the way to Stockwell underground station today – the first time I have walked that way for more than a week – I came across the most bizarre way to publicise the EU: paving stones on the pavement close to the tube station with EU stars on them!

I’m not sure that the EU really should be investing in pavements in South London, but give them their due, the idea of EU stars on the pavement is innovative! I thought the opportunity to blog about this was too good to miss – it even managed to demonstrate both my EU-geek and computer-geek credentials! So I took a picture of one of the stones with my camera phone, sent it by MMS to my e-mail account, and uploaded it here…
