I am a convinced European citizen and glad to be a citizen of the European Union - but now that I am approaching the first birthday of this blog, I think I am becoming an absolute EU-sceptic.The European elections are over, and the lack of European a...

@AndreAs I have said above: This is not a very big change in mentality. For everyone who has read my articles over the last month it is clear that I am a rather critical supporter of the European Union.So this is not so much a change in mentality but...

ahm, finishing up the EP part from before: since even my local newspaper in Germany reported about this, the refusal to back Barroso obviously did change things and for once gave a special position to the EP. Backing Barroso now would totally destroy...

Julien, how did this change of mentality come about? Is it just the incapacity of Barroso and other supranational figures to show the benefits of European integration? Or is it a deeper despair about the interplay of the of the institutions? Two thou...

Along with other Brussels-based communicators I am convinced that the desire for a better Europe is shared much more widely than is currently noticeable. People are realising that the business model needs to improve or we'll end up shutting up sh...

The shift in stance is actually not that big, it is more a shift in perspective. The blog will probably not change a lot, I might just look for certain things I didn't look for before.In fact, I never wanted to imply that all coming posts in this...

Chill Julien. The sun is out and street democracy is alive and well and driving around in tractors. There is no ultimate religious authority warning Dany CB et al that the blood of squashed protesters will be on their hands. Yes JMB is not Delors, b...
