- I've seen the future: it's scary and Belgian, April 24, 2004 - Pollard accuses Belgian Prime Minister of being paranoid and xenophobic: "THE PRIME MINISTER makes much of the 'scare stories' and 'myths' which opponents of further deepening of the EU supposedly propagate. They are based, apparently, on paranoia, and are products of not-so-latent xenophobia."
