One Of Our Countries Is Missing

Eurostat's Statistical Compendium 2004, which calls itself "the statistical guide to Europe," came out last Friday with a map on its front cover showing EU member states. It's intended as a yearbook for European Union statisticians. Unfortunately, Wales was completely missing. It seems to have sunk into the Irish Sea.

"[W]e're embarrassed and we're sorry," said Tim Allen, a press officer for Eurostat. Bits of Scandinavia also seem to have been altered.

There was no comment from the Prince of Wales.
