Nikolaos Dimou

In my view, the EU would be a better place, if the plethora of its policies were not defined as an outcome of the everlasting conflicts between a humanitarian but unrealistic France and a productive but austere Germany, but if they were rather set by a pragmatist Britain. This outcome might as well be the best choice possible for Europe's -and Britain's- future.

It's indeed over. France without the agreement of the nation decided that the fifth Republic is done. Praise the Sixth Republic that cannot bear the wit and has the code of sacred topics - the city of Paris and its multicultural, politically correct nature is the first one.

There Is No 'Wave' of Anti-Semitism

David Cesarani | Posted 27.03.2015 | UK
David Cesarani

invoking the fate of the Jews under Nazi rule is not only inappropriate - it is inflammatory and insulting to the victims.

It looks as if 2015 could turn out to be Europe's Year of the Insurgents... More than at any time since the end of the Cold War, Europe needs clear, determined leaders who can calm voters' anger and offer reassurance that better times are coming, especially for those who have been hardest hit by the age of austerity. Anger, fear and intolerance of minorities are a highly dangerous mix - we have seen before where they can lead when populist politicians fan the flames. The coming year will be a test that Europe must not fail.
