We won’t solve Europe’s problems with new initiatives, new instruments, new policies

We’ll solve Europe’s problems by unwinding the damaging policies of the past

We won’t solve Europe’s problems with new initiatives, new instruments, new policies

Last night I attended a meeting in the Strasbourg parliament of the Industry Committee ITRE, which had been called for a hearing to approve a new Industry Commissioner, Mr. Ferdinando Feroci.  He will be replacing the previous Italian incumbent Antonio Tajani, who has had to step down as Commissioner, having been elected to the European parliament.  But of course a whole new Commission will be sworn in in about four months’ time, so poor Mr. Feroci gets to sit in the seat for a very limited time, in which he will be able to achieve very little, except to keep the ship on course.  The whole thing was a mere formality, and arguably a waste of time.
