Regardless of your position on the EU, we should be wary about taking poll statistics too seriously. The turmoil engulfing the eurozone, the politial transformations taking place and the battles between so many different interest groups mean opinions will change on a day to day basis.
A teetering world economy. An economic crises for which solutions remain unknown. The leader of the free market world potentially having a gridlocked political system. I think there's only one thing that can be said here: good luck Mr. Obama.
The region is determined to be recognised, and treated, as a nation. Sadly, Catalans appear incapable of shouldering the bill that comes attached to it.
Conservative eurosceptics and Labour tacticians should beware. British hostility to the European Union is not as simple or complete as some of them think.
Austerity alone is not the answer. We need to show that we are responding the demands of Europe's citizens to find a better way out of our common crisis.

Investors and business leaders - on whom the country's economic recovery depends, can no longer be certain of the UK's liberty and protection under the law. At the very time other crisis economies are cutting costs and increasing certainty, business in the UK will have to contend not just with statutory rules and the costs they impose on employers. They will also face the consequences of pressure-group politics, in which politicians abandon the labour market to the unpredictable operations of twilight law.
The risk for the coalition in Downing Street of embracing this British isolationist sentiment is that it does not embody a rational movement, but a spasm.
Europe is back, and it looks like it's going to be quite a ride.
The speed at which the two former adversaries agreed on a coalition, as well as the multitude of compromises that they made, bodes well for political stability.
IMF economists have finally acknowledged what politicians have long denied. They have shown that austerity policies implemented by politicians and demanded by financial markets are severely damaging to what economists define as 'growth'.
