The Week in Bloggingportal: Schulzinisation, Orbanisation and the downgrading of the Union

© Hannes Swoboda

The week in triples

(1 ) First the Union got downgraded. Then the European Parliament was Schulzinised. The day after, it was Orbanised.

(2 ) Diana Wallis will leave the European Parliament. Commissioner Barnier may leave the European Commission. US citizens want to get rid of one of their governors.

(3 ) European defence policy has a future. The future of the Union is digital. Even the media have a future.

(4 ) The new fiscal compact for the EU divides. The fiscal compact involves tricky trade-offs. Therefore the negotations will be a success.

(5 ) Britain will never allow German leadership. What a stupid article. Didn’t you see the UK economy was shrinking?

(6 ) The internet needs global and local solutions, nothing in between. The new EU e-commerce directive is a Trojan horse for web censorship. But then, it can bring so many business opportunites.

(7 ) In the US, Europe is a dirty word. In Poland, Europe is loved. Croatians are blackmailed to like Europe.

(8 ) Can there be one overarching EU communication strategy? Is it good to be number four of the top ten worst EU communication activities? Is EU communication really like science communication?

(9 ) Hungary. Hungary. Hungary.

(10 ) EU citizens have quite different views on what constitutes personal data. This is not a triple. So go back to the previous triples if you haven’t read all posts we have linked.
