The Week in Bloggingportal: Revolution, onanism, and some common sense
How do you summarise a week in which Open Europe praises the Commission, a great Italian-language blog post discusses the revolutionary developments in Spain and England Expects has found the perfect example for EU onanims?
How to summarise a week in which a German blogger argues brilliantly about right-wing populism in the EU Parliament (and elsewhere in the EU) while the EU Parliament web editors finally let one of their real geeks out of the cage? A week in which 400 years of Portuguese history were as important as thoughts from Greece about the agorocracy to reason about the future of European politics?
How do you get together the hope for an EU acquis diplomatique and an essay about shopping in Belgium? And how to explain that two bloggers were in the European Parliament while another does not get an interview with a Member of the EP? Not to talk about Strauss-Kahn. Strauss-Kahn. Strauss-Kahn. Strauss-Kahn.
Maybe it is indeed time for a Revolución europea, one that brings together the best of EU onanism and some EU common sense – and the place for this is your Week in Bloggingportal, as usual!
