Commission President von der Lezen wearing a mask with an EU flag on it, explaining something to a child.

Early 2020, the novel Coronavirus, COVID-19 quickly spread around the globe. The pandemic changed the way we socialized, worked, and lived our lives. As it arrived in northern Italy, images of over-burdened hospitals quickly spread through Europe. The continent quickly realized that it must respond to the pandemic collectively if it wanted to stop the spread of the virus.

As member states were shutting their borders, halting almost all travel and trade, the EU set out on the seemingly impossible task to coordinate a response. The procurement and distribution of masks and other personal protection equipment was the first item on the agenda. Member states also helped one another by taking on patients from other countries or attempting to ease restrictions on cross-border workers.

The pandemic situation of lockdowns, remote work and social distancing measures went on, and the EU took the unprecedented step of collectively taking on debt to finance a recovery fund to cushion the blow to member states’ economies. EU member states also took the controversial decision to purchase vaccines as a collective, ensuring that all member states made equal progress in vaccinating their populations. Finally, the Green Certificates were introduced to prove vaccination, recovery, or negative test results for people across the EU, in an attempt to ease lockdown restrictions and reintroduce some form of normality into our daily lives.

While the EU undertook enormous efforts to respond to the pandemic, most actions, mainly restrictions of our daily professional and personal lives, were done on the national, or sometimes sub-national level. Sometimes, official recommendations or rules did not reflect the actions of politicians, as David from Hungary pointed out in our focus group “100 European Voices”:

Image of a citizenThe politicians didn’t set an example. Even members of the government and the prime minister, they were without the mask on the TV and on official pictures. People got confused.

Adam from Belgium felt that scientists were setting the rules:

Image of a citizenIt seems they [politicians] only listen to the biologists but they don’t take into account the human factor or the social part, the wellbeing part.

The debate around personal freedoms and the protection of our communities did not stop at vaccines, which for most of Europe’s population is still voluntary. The low acceptance rate of the Covid vaccine is prolonging lockdown measures across Europe. Kevin from Belgium has a clear opinion on the vaccine:

Image of a citizenI wouldn’t even be opposed to making it [vaccine] mandatory for everyone, because we’re talking about human lives.

To get a policymaker perspective, we asked the same questions that led our focus groups to members of the European Parliament from all political groups. Expand the cards below to find out what politicians think of the EU’s response to the pandemic:

Radical Left
José Gusmão (GUE-NGL), Member of the European Parliament:

Greens
Margrete Auken (Greens/EFA), Member of the European Parliament:

Liberal Democrats
Stéphanie Yon-Courtin  (Renew), Member of the European Parliament:

Centre Right
Sabine Verheyen (EPP), Member of the European Parliament:

Conservatives
Johan Van Overtveld  (ECR), Member of the European Parliament:

In the beginning, we did not have enough sanitation equipment. And we had to overcome a lot of nationalistic tendencies in all countries. Secondly, there were issues with the pharmaceutical industry. The vaccinations in the EU were clearly delayed when compared with the United States, the UK and Israel, for example.
The delivery of vaccines was clearly not a show of force for Europe. However, I think the economic recovery after the lockdowns and sanitation measures has been quite good so far.

Eurosceptics
Nicolaus Fest  (ID), Member of the European Parliament:

      Paul Emmert I mean unvaccinated people. Yes I know plenty of vaxxed who have been very ill including my 18 year old nephew. Coincidence I am sure. He literally has been in bed for 2 weeks, 1 week after his 1st jab. The previous 2 years He was never ill.

      Paul Michael > 1 week after his 1st jab.At the age of 18 years old it would take around two full weeks to make enough antibodies to have the basic level of resistance against covid.So at a week, and with only one vaccination he just didn’t have enough made yet.You seem to be under the mistaken impression that you’re instantly immune.

      Gregor

      Are you a critical thinker Stephen ?can you answer 2 questions ?1 -why are we having to be vaccinated to go abroad or go to events when someone with the vaccine can spread the virus the same as someone without it ?2-Why are politicians etc excempt from the rules ?if it was really about a virus surely there would be no exceptions for rich and powerfull people ?A virus has been used to implement changes to benefit govt and big business.

    • avatar
      Stephen

      Gregor Cunningham – I think rationally, but I don’t make a big song and dance about it.1 – You’re incorrect, because vaccinated people do *not* spread the virus with the same level of potential as someone who is unvaccinated.Because you started from a false premise, the rest of your conclusion was incorrect. That’s why you’re in a position where it doesn’t make sense.2 > Why are politicians etc excempt from the rules I’m not defending any politicians. Although many are tested regular, so if you’re crying about seeing them occasionally doing photo-ops without masks it’s because everyone there has already been tested.Since you weren’t specific about this other than saying “politicians” I can’t be any more specific than that.> A virus has been used to implement changes to benefit govt and big business.The government and businesses are hemorrhaging money. Tell me how this claim of yours is supposed to work.

      Stephen Taylor let’s repeat it again for anyone reading to see what a dangerous liar you are and other like you —Nations and states with no/minimal lockdown and restrictions faired better or par than nations with even when population density and distribution is taken in account. Going by not just national/state/county stats, but expert staticians at stanford.Nations with the highest levels of shot rates— WELL ABOVE what your brainwashers claimed was necessary for shot induced “””herd immunity””— like iceland and israel, now going into more lockdowns. Showing BLATANTLY the lies you eat up “durrrrrr we have to get 75% of people to take this poison to get to hErD iMmUniTy ” >iceland reaches over 90%…… goes into more lockdowns as infections spike– Their Chief epidemiologist states there is no shot induced herd immunity. French Nobel prize winning virologist vindicated for his belief it was a lab made virus joins the scores of other stifled experts saying shots are causing the rise of newer deadlier strains through ADE.Let’s look into the numbers of the vastly inflated mortality. CDC data shows 80% were over 65. 95% had 3 comorbidities. Meaning the only people at any real risk are are the old and affiliated. What are they saying about your poison now??? It doesnt provide immunity, it doesnt stop infection, and vaxxed have as much viral load as unvaxxed. And only reduces severity of symptoms…….. of something that only is a threat to the old and unhealthy.That data is crystal clear. Cuck

    Some measures are of course necessary and welcomed to protect the vulnerable, but I think it’s clear for all to see that things have gone far, far beyond what is sensible and reasonable.Governments have imposed excessive, draconian restrictions (to the extent that people were not even allowed to do something so trivial as sit on a beach or park bench), internal passports to enter businesses and go about daily activities, and are trying to coerce and blackmail people into taking a vaccine which many do not need or want and have understandable concerns over in exchange for “getting your freedom back”. We are now seeing a two tier society where people are discriminated against based on their medical history and for exercising their personal freedom regarding what they choose to put into their body.People who have suffered adverse reactions to the vaccine are ignored, dismissed, and ridiculed, and their testimonies booted off of social media as “misinformation” by some faceless ‘fact-checker’ who hasn’t personally experienced what these people have. The news presents a one sided view of the situation and completely ignores and dismisses anyone with any concerns. Doctors, virologists, nurses, and other medical professionals with decades in the field who question things and raise concerns are struck off and dismissed from their posts.People should be seriously concerned about government overreach and how far things have gone.

      Debating Europe those are not vaccines, but DNA altering methods. While there are 3 or 4 manufacturers of classic vaccines for covid, with better results in one injection and less side effects, those corrupt, money and ego-driven leaders block them off, because they have their dirty hands in the big pharma’s money.

      Debating Europe Why? Because with every “new variant”, we are told to be very afraid, although most people are vaccinated. I’ll take my chances on not being vaccinated. I had Sars Cov 2 in march. It sucked, but not much of a deal. Just like with the flu, people with a weak immune system can die from it. This is the new flu, but it is used a a leverage for horrible people to bring about change. Just like this climate change crap, it comes from the same little club. It is definately not for the better of the people, but for the elite. And we can all be sure they they don’t get the vaccine.

      Debating Europe because you cant vaccinate your way out of a respiratory virus pandemic, you are only creating more asymptomatic or mild cases that won’t get detected and they will spread it even more which in turn produces more variants that causes vaccine breakthru and endangers the old and weak even more. many countries have more infections now then last year going into the winter and vaccination efficacy is dropping fast. like many ignored vaccinologists predicted!!!!! https://www.geertvandenbossche.org/post/c-19-pandemia-quo-vadis-homo-sapiens

      Debating Europe because taking a “vax” for a mutating virus only causes it to mutate faster, but hey we’re talking about very minor mutations that make it about 98% similar to the other strain. if you just get the virus and develop natural immunity you’re way better protected. Hey even the Pfizer scientist said it with confidence, see the project veritas pfizerleak. More importantly tho, you pumped 90% of people full with an experimental gen manipulation that spread the spike protein throughout the whole body. We had no idea about the long term side effects and now we’re starting to see more and more really healthy people dying left and right. And all for a virus that has a 99% survival rate in the population aged 0-65 and 98% survival rate in 65+.

    The EU did well to purchase vaccines as a collective, however the pharmaceutical companies should always be held accountable for the safety and compensate for serious side effects. This is currently not the case. Moreover, the implementation of the EU Green Pass has no legal basis and promotes medical apartheid. It coerces people to get vaccinated with a vaccine that hasn’t completed phase 3 clinical trials.

    At the moment immunity from natural immunity only counts for 6 months, while the validity of vaccine-induced immunity is not limited in time. But according to the scientific literature this opposite is true, that is long-lasting immunity has been found in people previously infected, while waning immunity is observed 6 months post-vaccination.

    It’s the worst violation of human dignity, freedom of choice, freedom of movement and freedom of speech since WWII. All those control tools that are now in place will never be removed and instead will be adapted to any new future “crisis”, that can now be defined on any criteria and for as long as needed provided the exit conditions are never revealed. In the case of the current pandemic that has an EXTREMELY HIGH survival rate when taking into account all age ranges, we’re all very aware of how many people are infected daily but there is no clear info about when it can be considered over (and unless a CLEARLY DEFINED metric exists for this, then on paper it can last indefinitely and so will the restrictions). The “legally approved” way to confirm you’re NOT infected for a limited duration only is a test which communicates your result after a black box process in which “duration” of said procedure might influence the outcome, think about that for a minute.Freedom in general as a right is no longer a granted thing. It’s now ruled by conditions defined “for our own safety”, it’s a consumable good, with an expiration date, that those so-called leaders intend to make us renew once or twice a year. Meanwhile those providing the “keys to our freedom” in the form of pokes are happily piling up our tax money…the leaders will tell you it’s free, but did you forget about taxes ?You should rather ask what do we think about the world’s response to the pandemic – the answer is the same. Since all leaders are the same: a bunch of money-craving cowards that are now enjoying sooooo much their new authoritarian tools. They’ll never let go of them and never remove the laws enabling them. Because the moment they do, and IF they do so, they’ll be judged by everyone for what they are: a bunch of traitors to mankind itself.I’ll most likely get censored for this post. To the moderators that will delete it: go F… yourself.

    EU Reform Proactive

    Not as simple as written! The many emotions will be ignored!

    First, we have the UN/WHO- responsible for all its ~ 194 sovereign Members- especially the poorer ones! = 1st x “Sharing is Caring”!

    https://unhabitat.org/un-habitat-covid-19-response-plan

    To judge how efficient the EU’s response to Covid-19 was/is- requires first to correctly understand its legal obligations. We talk EU now- not so?

    Matters get complicated when- in addition- our mini UN=EU27 sees fit to act on behalf of its 27EU & some UN27 Nation Members as well.

    Why do these 27 EU/UN Nations deserve such extra care, concern, bureaucracy & additional costs? Privilege or burden?

    • First read Article 168 of the “Functioning Treaty” & then EU Regulation 2021/522……….
    • Cost: the EU budgeted ~€5 billion for the period 2021-2027 for that privilege.

    However, each of the EU27 Members needs to be judged separately on how they performed at the national level- simultaneously. Thanks to “shared competencies”! = 2nd x “Sharing is Caring”!

    • Public health is a competence shared between the EU and its Member States.

    Finally: how well did the EU perform regarding:

    • To prevent illness/disease by promoting healthier lifestyles?
    • To facilitate access to better and safer healthcare?
    • To contribute to innovative, efficient and sustainable health systems?
    • To deal with cross-border threats?
    • To keep people healthy throughout their lifetimes?
    • To harness new technologies and practices?

    Q: Is that worth the additional ~€5 billion over ~6 years?

    There is a lot of work to be done. Europe nor any European country is ready for pandemics or any other crisis for that matter. Europe should have plans for any crisis that might come. Do not wait until the crisis happens, be prepared. And do prepare your citizens too. Why did most people not have masks and handgel at home? Why did people panic and start buying toilet paper and food? Because governments did not prepare their citizens. You could take example on Japan on that matter. Every 1 september the Japanese government tells its citizens what they should have at home. Water and food for at least three days, protection in case of a pandemic,….. Listen to scientists, they will tell you what the possible problems will be in the (near) future. Not just pandemics, but floods, nuclear disasters, earthquakes, terrorist attacks, volcanoes,….. people can be prepared to have what they need at home, they can be prepared on how to react in case of disaster. But it’s up to governments to make their citizens prep for it. At least, when disasters happen, people won’t be waiting until the government saves them, they won’t be blaming governments for their misery. They will be self-prepared to save and protect themselves. https://www.facebook.com/PreppersDayEurope/

France (Pass Sanitaire), Belgium (Covid Safe Ticket) and Italy (Green Pass) are the avant-garde, and I would bet the skin of my face they will be extended to all aspects of life.

Meanwhile the EU is occupied with universal cell phone chargers Before the pandemic I was a big fan of the EU because of three things : open borders, the Euro and the protection of civil liberties via the European courts. With open borders and civil liberties gone, I’m waiting for the EU to kill the Euro

    The response of europe to this “pandemic” is to cry for . Not only made every country member his own rules during this crisis , but the fact that human rights can be so easy set aside is disturbing . Look at the vaccins for instance . Vaccins are needed to fight disseases. But to vaccinated the whole world with new vaccins is derranged …. For that to work people need to have trust in those vaccins . Trust In the EU. In there own gouverment…. Lots of people dont have that . And i cant blame them. The gouverments demand you take the vaccins or they take away your freedom… You still got a choice yes , but really ? Then theres the WEF that saying the world needs a reset. The WHO that changed the rules about what a pandemic is and what herd immunity stands for and how to achiev that ( vaccines ofcourse) . Trust in gouverments and EU and all is very thin …

    The Cyprus government is unlawfully and arbitrarily violating The exceptions to articles 8 to 11 of the European Convention on Human Rights because it does not meet the criteria required for the exceptions and the EU has no time-sensitive process to deal with it. What is the point of having the European Convention on Human Rights when the EU can’t intervene quickly enough to prevent violations? The Cyprus government is also unlawfully violating the Oviedo Convention by not offering informed consent with full comprehension and coercing and pressuring EU citizens to vaccinate with an experimental vaccine. The Cyprus government is unlawfully violating citizen’s human rights to Right to liberty and security (Article 5 of the European Convention on Human Rights) by unlawfully detaining healthy symptomless contacts of unconfirmed COVID cases by quarantine.The EU states that we must write the Cyprus Commissioner of Human Rights yet she states she has no power. The court cases are being delayed. Judges, lawyers and the like are being threatened. The EU wrote exceptions to the European Convention on Human Rights which is easily used as an excuse by corrupt national governments to unlawfully violated EU citizens rights, but it has no direct fast-acting process to protect EU citizens from national violations. As far as I am concerned the EU is slow, inefficient, ineffective and practically useless. It is only good at writing laws but it doesn’t have an effective time-sensitive plan of action or authority to enforce them when they are urgently required. The WHO states on their website that “Most people infected with the virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment.” So why are we in an emergency? In Cyprus, we have under 1% covid cases if they are even covid cases as most cases do not even have one symptom to meet the covid case criteria. The Cyprus Government is corrupt and highly likely invested in pandemic products, as they are hell-bent on maintaining the illusion of a pandemic when there clearly isn’t one. Other EU countries with similar statistics have removed measures while in Cyprus it is full of fascism with unnecessary and disproportionate measures which are more likely to be tax-payer fund theft and disposable income theft from pandemic product sales personal investments. The EU doesn’t have any fast-acting laws or powers to deal with corrupt national governments violating EU citizens medical rights and human rights.

    Not a response but an opportunity they’ve all bren waiting to implement measures and take away the rights to citizens. Now they don’t have no moral highground in the future to accuse other nations of infriging the so-called human righs.

    Could it be less reppressive and liberticide by using Covid Safe Ticket/Pass to force people to be vaccined while these vaccines are still under test. They should also explain why they are keeping and maintaining half-million of doses instead of save people in other social condition than us ?They are upstarts and it disgusts me to see how we are managed in EUROPE…

    What do you think about the EU’s response to the pandemic?

    A complete phoney sham! You know full well this vaccination farce is not working and is dangerous to the general people…. yet, as in Thalidomide, continue with the pretence under the notion, ‘although people are still contracting this virus after both jabs, it is ‘less’ likely to kill them.’

    Who will be paying compensation when finally you have to admit this is an error of seriously bad judgement? Why, the same tax payers of course, the real people who had nothing to do with this money making for billionaires sham you are backing..

    And what I have written is first hand knowledge.. A friend of mine had the two jabs.. three weeks later she came down with Covid 19… Fortunately she is 36 and did not die.. But many others have… Now you want to force it on young children without one acknowledgement to medical staff screaming out to you not to do this….

    Why???

      @Cathrine Benning I see that debting Europe is either choosing which comments to post or they are too slow in doing their job. Anyway. I do not think that the virus can be stopped unless there is a cure for it!!! It seems this is a biological weapon.

I don’t like being lied to all the time and no lie will ever convince me to take something experimental. ALso the meusures were batshit (or batsoup :p) crazy without a basis in science.

    What do you think about the EU’s response to the pandemic?

    The trouble with all these groups who claim to be Governing nations of the world is, when they make ‘gross mistakes in judgement’ made regarding the lies given to them by medical salesmen, they want to run and deny the existence of their error…. Why is that???

    It is now pretty obvious throughout the world that vaccine in Covid 19 matters does not stop transmission.. We also see very clearly deaths from the vaccines are a cause of death in many cases.. And yet, here in the UK and clearly in Australia, the use of this so called treatment is not facing any kind of scrutiny. All you hear is, ‘double the vaccinations that will bring about relief from this horrific pandemic’.. ‘Only then will you see termination of the spreading virus.’ Why is that??? India shows us very clearly that vaccines being used is not stopping anything at all. In fact the disease is spreading like wildfire. Yet the bigger the spread the more the media and social chat websites are forced to keep it quiet or face extinction…. To a lay person it appears to be a conspiracy toward mass extinction…

    What surprises more than any other chat show host is the GB news open Farage. However, on this though, he is all for mass vaccination of all people including the very young and the quicker the better. I assume this must be before the truth gets out and those still prepared to give this jab refuse to continue as more revelations show the horror of hidden results creating fear and guilt having taken a terrible toll…

    What is it that makes the human race do this repeatedly when this kind of chaos reaches their ears.. Why is the first response “cover it up or we will all be made to pay.” Then, once it does scream out, ‘stop,’ they collectively run for retirement or deselection to sidestep accountability…..

    Here is an example of an ‘ignorant woke voice’ hollering like a banshee on the only genuine News channel in GB, allowing these fashionable, predominantly female blasters, to create the new, ‘children must be responsible for themselves, grunt, even when they fear what they are saying is futile.

      EU Reform Proactive

      Hi Catherine,
      Hope you are well!

      To my surprise, this theme attracted lots of negative, many misguided, distressed & angry comments about the vaccine, the vaccination process, the EU, its politicians & big pharma. Never seen that before!

      If all 27 members would hold an in/out EU referendum now- probably more would vote for “out” then “in”. Opinions about the EU change like the April weather!

      Many 27 national governments were equally in a deep slumber! Unfortunately, all of them missed to educate & prepare the public. Unprepared & a faster than sound super-virus got the better of them all.

      Most folks hardly did sufficient research on their own- although there is an abundance of free available info! No time, no interest- too much Twitter & Facebook? Pity!

      What would a factual, realistic & balanced view be? I have no intention of trying to alter your or anyone’s held opinion! I strongly rely upon my belief & actions. In the end, it is everybody’s own life & responsibility how to gamble their life away!

      I can disclose to have sought & happily received the 2x Pfizer vaccine shots some time ago- 42 days apart (as per medical recommendation)- without any complications. I am glad & have no regrets. (Both my wife & myself.)

      Having no- so-called “underlying conditions” and free from any traces of any incubating (takes ~2 weeks) flu-type or C-19 infection symptoms at the time- this “event” went unnoticed & smooth. Just a slightly sore upper arm for a short while, depending on the nurse hitting or missing one of the 3 nerves (“median, radial, and ulnar nerves”) or some strange muscle located there.

      No scientist, the UN or politician to my knowledge ever maintained that the C-19 vaccine will stop transmission dead in its track. That’s a grave error & misunderstanding!

      One still can get infected, one still can pass this virus on. However, one does not occupy an expensive ICU bed nor need a respirator or eventually die awfully. If infected, one can stay at home & recuperate. Isn’t that enough incentive & poses cheap life insurance under the circumstances?

      The annual common flu can never be stopped either by a vaccine. We are using this vaccine over the last ~10-15years and never contracted the common flu. Lucky?

      Flu vaccines don’t act as a permanent protector like Polio, smallpox, measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine (MMR), Hepatitis B- which we all received as children. At that time without any drama, demos, uproar or a questionable EU “shared competency”- like today!

      At the time, the 100% sovereign National states considered that their obligation & duty! Our national politicians are hardly thinking- but permanently bickering & campaigning for votes. They generously outsource their obligations when in power to the EU & others- while the UN offers any assistance the EU can offer- with less money, less bureaucracy & more freedom.

      General health: what kind of milk are babies given nowadays? Most mothers buy formulated milk. A cardinal sin! What happens to the transfer of antibodies? Breastfeeding is mainly done in 3rd world countries- like Africa! This disadvantages any 1st world born babies immune systems from birth- a bad start to life. Another “underlying condition”

      https://kidshealth.org/en/parents/vaccine.html
      https://www.aappublications.org/news/2021/10/09/human-milk-covid-19-antibodies-pediatrics

      General overindulgence, refined & fast-foods, fast life, stress, wrong diet & reduced exercise are all underlying conditions! The EU produces robots instead of healthy babies and accepts mainly illegal & unsuitable migrants instead. This will reduce the birthrate & estrangement even more. And “they” fantasise about an EU army with unsuitable & non-existing soldiers! Unbelievable crazy!

      Please go through the attached statistics. Covid-19 is the 2nd biggest killer in the US! The death rate is 11.5% or 640,000 or 194 per 100,000 after “Ischemic heart disease” of 16,8% or 930,000 or 283 per 100,000.

      C-19 death ranks 4th globally or 4,6%, or 4 550 000, or 59/100 000! Guess why? And people are not even aware of it- until it is too late!

      C-19 vaccination should not be blamed for coincidental or unexplained death during immunization- without careful investigations. Ideally, in any social caring country, all need to cooperate to reduce costs.

      Hope it helps a bit- or too much said?

    Finally:

    1) Covid-19 Pandemic:

    * There should be no doubt that the Covid-19 pandemic is real! (please visit WHO) https://covid19.who.int/ vs The common flu:
    https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/viruses/index.htm

    * The vaccination effort is a necessity & has a proven positive effect globally. Despite the (unfortunate) anti-vax lobby.

    Paradoxically, the better educated first world wildly demonstrates while the 3rd world pleads & begs for more vaccines!
    ———————————————————————————————————–
    2) EU vaccine negotiations- shared competencies:

    I accept the legality of shared competencies. But when the EU derogates from such commitments (by “emergency regulations etc.”) and such action is reported (ref link) as “not reported” in any document, such deviations are a cause of concern.

    Below is a report about the “Transparency in Negotiation of the European Union with Big Pharma on COVID-19 Vaccines”.

    https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fpubh.2021.647955/full

    Did the final negotiated prices favour the EU taxpayers or the big pharma businesses?

    “The CEOs of Moderna and BioNTech top the list of nine individuals who became billionaires on the back of the rollout of vaccines against Covid-19, a group advocating turning vaccine receipts into a global public good has said.
    Much of the scientific research that went into the creation of effective vaccines against Covid-19 was paid for by taxpayer money, but the private companies that hold monopolies on the resulting intellectual property (IP) are the ones that reap the rewards. That situation is unjust and should be changed, argues the People’s Vaccine Alliance, which is calling for the lifting of IP protections for the vaccines ahead of a G20 summit.” Oxfam reported:

    https://www.oxfam.org/en/press-releases/covid-vaccines-create-9-new-billionaires-combined-wealth-greater-cost-vaccinating

    Trying to mix aggressive & destructive US capitalism with modest European socialism is hardly a good idea.

    Reminder:
    The EU’s secrete & abandoned TTIP negotiations lacked transparency & accountability! The TTIP lobbying ghosts are haunting Brussels once again!

    https://corporateeurope.org/en/international-trade/2019/02/ttip-reloaded-big-business-calls-shots-new-eu-us-trade-talks

    I wouldn’t trust the EU to successfully & transparently negotiate favourable deals after the TTIP debacle. Somebody needs to oversee them, but who to trust?

    Can the EU ever redeem herself?

      Hi Catherine,

      I also noticed that a new ‘sideways G’ symbol appears once we reply to a comment. Seems it belongs to “GRAVATAR”: (=IT company of sorts)

      https://en.gravatar.com/

      My guess: DE did a systems “up or down grade” using Gravatar which squeezes our comment into ~1/3 of the space we used to have.

      Maybe it’s their response & contribution to a more “sustainable (restricted)” exchange of ideas & enhanced EU democracy? “Adapt or perish!

      Don’t like it either! We’ll find out over time.

    I had sent a vid showing a government document in Aus, man at the top, exposing this virus and subsequent vaccine as poison to the masses. nIn the UK the level of people who have been vaccinated and the death toll is mounting at an unsustainable rate..It is not working here or in Australia…
