The most embarrassing problems in Europe remain unsolved: It is time to be loud

He takes a huge start-up, to submit to strong momentum and rushes full force through the door. Well, the stand wide open. But not interested in a Sebastian Short. Austria's Chancellor in place by locking with his combined power and report pride prison.

For example, like this: "Our commitment has paid off – we were able to achieve a good result for the future of the EU and the Austrian interests." As the most important success he achieved at this week's summit in Brussels, announced he prevents: "debt Union". -/European Union/XinHua/Reuters Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, Federal Chancellor of Austria, Sebastian Kurz, Finland's Prime Minister Sanna Marin, Sweden's Prime Minister Stefan Lofven and Denmark's Prime Minister, Mette Frederiksen (v. l.) will be meeting on the sidelines of the EU summit.

Prevented? Debt Union? Which was never planned. The simple fact: The European recovery plan of 750 billion euros should be initially made up of 500 billion in grants, which need not be repaid, and 250 billion in loans. After the four-day use of Short & co. the ratio: 390 billion in grants 360 billion in loans. From 500 billion in grants, 390 were.

self-praise: one plus

It was in the last weeks heated discussions as to whether we should call the group to be Short and to the Dutch Prime Minister, Mark Rutte, as the "Thrifty Four" or the "miserly Four" (in the final sprint there were even five).

most suitable would probably be: The PR-strong Four. Because to push a amount to a good 20 per cent, and to celebrate it as the guardians of fiscal integrity and a Savior of Europe, is already a very good achievement. Self-praise: one plus.

Add to that The overall package of 1.8 trillion Euro – medium-term budget up to 2027 plus Corona-AIDS – was purposefully cut exactly where it should be definitely better not to cut: health, research, migration policy, climate protection.

... otherwise Europe would have to shut down

the Bottom line but struggle "of the EU against the EU succeeded in torment" then something crucial: holds Europe together, Europe is moving closer together. And this contribution is not made only in the currency of "warm words", but in the category of "cash coin". FOCUS Online Margarete van Ackerens Berlin week

In their agonizing meetings, the heads of state and heads of government showed that this Europe is something of value. For the first time in its history, the EU itself is taking on more debt and funds awarded. The crisis is so threatening, that's right. The most important impulse smears, and Changes in her – came from German Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) and French President Emmanuel Macron.

If in such a crisis, the extent of which is still unforeseeable, nothing Great would come, would have been able to decide, the EU is also equal to its self-dissolution.

the rule of law? Doesn't have to be!

has Yet to race the political Four-days-more than just a beauty error. During the colleagues, it does not give the Public something told by a "connection between the EU budget and the preservation of the rule of law", proclaimed Poland's Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and his Hungarian colleague Viktor Orban in their common appearance, with great Pride, that such a direct Link just. The rule of law? Doesn't have to be!

The statement was, once again, one of those formula-compromise found, which are typical for the summit Meeting. Typical but also that the problems postponed only, but are not solved. Europe disgraced themselves and the world.

Embarrassing for Europe

Against Poland and Hungary action for breach of European fundamental values. The European Parliament is now calling for a robust rule, in fact, this EU funding may be reduced for violations of the rule of law, and is therefore a pure matter of course.

Orban had previously made to his colleagues and Quasi-colleagues that he will not agree to the budget and billions in aid, should you dare to put Hungary and Poland seriously under pressure. They did not dare it.

The lever of the right-wing populists – they seem

The right-wing populist Orbán was loud and there was given to him. The Dutch Mark Rutte, the a few months before the parliamentary elections, two right-wing populist parties sit in the nape of the neck, were also indulged in the stages of success. And here's a disquieting pattern. The lever of the right-wing populists – they work. Whether directly or indirectly.

you can complain without consequences, smile or weep. But you can perhaps learn something as well. If you want to achieve in Europe, something that must be loud. So if you want to really that the law of state Deconstruction is stopped in Parts of Europe, the do not need to clear his throat only polite, but screaming.

Angela Merkel? Yes. Macron? Also. Since all of the heads of state or government are required. Effective but it would be well if the citizens in Europe, where democratic rules are important, at Phonstärke would grow. Message: We don't want to.
