We recieved a lot of comments in reaction to our recent post on whether the euro should be split into Northern and Southern eurozones. Lots of you feel very strongly that relations between Northern and Southern Europe have been damaged by the ongoing eurozone crisis, with some of you calling for the divide to be mended (whilst others are calling for an amicable divorce). We had a video question sent to us from Flavia asking how relations between Europeans can be improved, and we put it to various politicians for them to react.
We began by talking to Brian Hayes, an Irish politician with the centre-right Fine Gael party, and Minister of State at the Department of Finance. What did he think?
Next, we put the same question to Tytti Tuppurainen, a Member of the Finnish Parliament with the Social Democratic Party of Finland. How would she react?
Then we spoke to Bogdan Klich, Deputy Chair of the Polish Senate and former Polish Minister of Defence with the centre-right Civic Platform party.
Finally, we spoke to Linas Antanas Linkevičius, the social democratic Lithuanian Minister of Foreign Affairs.
