Android : Finally...over ten years after the financial crisis,a proposal to complete the banking union & safeguard people’s savings. I applaud Olaf Scholz, but Europe can’t go on like this. Always “too little too late”. We need an overhaul of our Union so it can react to a changing world. twitter.com/ftbrussels/sta…

Android : Future generations, who will bear the brunt of our climate emergency, will be appalled by Trump's legacy. The US might want to run away from the challenge of our time, the EU should once again lead this fight. #NoPlanetB twitter.com/CNN/status/119…

iPhone : So it is Goodbye Central European University
and Hello Chinese Communist party???
A reminder that Hungary is a member state of the European Union.
Anybody in the EPP Group interested in this? twitter.com/thorstenbenner…

Twitter Web Client : Quite ironical that European affairs are more important to Nigel Farage than the politics of Great Britain. A pity, his departure would have been an enormous saving of European taxpayers money 😉

Android : 5,460 children, many under the age of five, were taken from their families by Trump's administration, with no way of knowing if they would be reunited. Just one of the costs of his right wing populism.

Android : The construction of Europe was a turning point for European nations - Simone Veil knew it then, now it is time to rediscover the European dream.

Once we fought, now we talk. Peace between our nations must never be taken for granted. #IamEuropean twitter.com/Europarl_EN/st…

Android : Fully support this initiative, which could provide real teeth in the battle against money laundering in Europe. National agencies are often too slow to coordinate & deliver real change. twitter.com/ftbrussels/sta…

Twitter Web Client : Warning: This is not Alec Baldwin 😬

Android : After a local election where liberal opposition parties prospered, the Hungarian Government is back harassing the democratic opposition in pure Putin style.

Europe needs a free & open Hungary & that's what the Hungarian people deserve. twitter.com/katka_cseh/sta…

Android : Wise reflections from Elif Şafak / Elif Shafak on the rise of nationalist populism in Turkey, its drift away from European values & how the same risks happening elsewhere.

No country is an island. We have to cherish & defend open societies against demagoguery.

Android : Relieved that finally no one died in a ditch. Whether the UK's democratic choice is revoke or an orderly withdraw, confirmed or not in a second referendum, the uncertainty of Brexit has gone on for far too long. This extra time must deliver a way forward.
