    That’s sort of a grey area then, if the whole country is not part of eorupe is it then eorupean? One can argue for one or the other, but it’s difficult to reach an agreement, could russia be part of the EU for example? So I don’t think it takes anything out of her statement, that DK is the bridge between scandinavia and eorupe, certainly it’s not an obvious mistake, but a matter of interpretation.
