While there are a number of claimants to the mathematical centre of Europe,
the logistical, that is, geopolitical centre of the Europe of tomorrow is
Riga http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riga .
There are any number of reasons why Brussels should not be the EU capital,
while there are many reasons why Riga should be.
While the originator of this thesis has advocated Riga as the capital of
the European Union for some time, politicians have ignored the question.
It makes sense to dismiss Riga as the capital of Europe for political reasons
that dominante among the political elites.
But is the same disinterest true for the general public? Surely not.
Indeed, there are many people of populist sympathies
who would welcome a serious discussion,
no less than they would welcome Riga as the capital city of Europe.
