  1. One really get upset about how some people are doing everything they can to bring bad reputation over EU. Is there an interest (lobbying) to make EU look as bad as possible?

    • For 40 years I have been pro-European in my genes. Still today I believe that we need more Europe and not less. That being said, I think the real Europeans have a double responsibility.

The second is the responsibility to oppose opacity, excessive bureaucracy and the ineffective governance of the European Commission.
