The European Union’s leaders yesterday has made a decision. They formally elected the first president of the EU and its ‘secretary of state’ too.
Mr. Herman Van Rompuy, an unknown Christian Democrat PM from Belgium, the president-nominee. A silent politician, who is really unknown for most of the citizens of EU.
Baroness Catherine Ashton, from the UK, an uknown labour politician, who has no idea what does it mean: diplomacy, is the ‘secretary of state’ nominee. With a silent voice too.
Now we can see that as in the past, now and in the future, the EU’s real leaders will be: Germany and France.
But then why the European Parliament created the Lisbon Treaty (known as the Constitution of EU) ?
Some kind of bad humor? Or it was just a mirage, or a dream, that we should be a ‘super state’, which can be a rival of the US and China (maybe Japan)?.
I hoped this dream should became true, but the national emotions and euro-scepticism is stronger then a collective thinking in Europe. We are as divided as we were in historical moments.
Lisbon Treaty – A dream of some embittered people, who want a united and strong Europe.
