EU and the UK – Winter is coming NEW
Cosmetic Uprise 2 Years, 1 Week, 5 Days, 11 Hours, 59 Minutes ago
I used to live in Newcastle, the modern day Winterfell if there ever was one, so allow me to issue a warning: winter is coming. Whole of Europe is in a bit of a state given the debt crisis. New kings emerge every day demanding for their rightful shar...
Europe: Thank you and goodbye? NEW
Cosmetic Uprise 2 Years, 7 Months, 2 Weeks, 6 Hours, 19 Minutes ago

Skiing holiday NEW
Cosmetic Uprise 3 Years, 6 Months, 2 Weeks, 3 Days, 11 Hours, 13 Minutes ago
I’m now officially taking what we in Finland like to call a skiing holiday. Most likely I will do very little of actual skiing but that’s beside the point. I’m now back in Finland for eight weeks and won’t have time to blog ab...

The EU? Yawn. NEW
Cosmetic Uprise 3 Years, 7 Months, 4 Weeks, 2 Days, 4 Hours, 30 Minutes ago
Has anyone else noticed how few EU-related stories there are in the UK? On thinking about what to write, I browse through the main papers and Google news but there’s not much out there these days. There’s only so much I can write about the ec...

Cosmetic Uprise 3 Years, 8 Months, 1 Week, 2 Days, 1 Hour, 11 Minutes ago
Whispers in Brussels and London are all saying Ireland will soon approach the European Financial Stability Fund for a loan. Irish denials are as expected as they are overlooked – increased buzz over the issue seems to imply that a bailout might...

Rare breed NEW
Cosmetic Uprise 3 Years, 8 Months, 1 Week, 4 Days, 22 Hours, 58 Minutes ago
It’s a curious thing. Brits don’t much care for the EU. Quite a few of the British MEPs are from parties whose raison d’être is to abolish the bloody thing. But still people are always excited to meet a British person in Brussels.
Inconvenient answer NEW
Cosmetic Uprise 3 Years, 8 Months, 3 Weeks, 18 Hours, 9 Minutes ago

Three easy steps to make British public love the EU NEW
Cosmetic Uprise 3 Years, 9 Months, 1 Week, 1 Day, 8 Hours, 31 Minutes ago
There’s a lot of moaning in Brussels on how the EU doesn’t get good coverage. Or how people don’t know enough about it (watch this interview). The Solution What the EU really needs is just country-specific PR. Let’s take for...
