The Week in Bloggingportal: Tusk against the EUterus of death

Because of the many mistakes the spokespeople of the Hungarian Presidency made over the last six months, it looks grim for the European Union.

A cult of death has developed around the EUterus, and while the Commission is desperately fighting against myths on the budget front, only  the new visionary Donald Tusk can save the European Union.

He who has taken over the Presidency of the EU Council is the only one who can defend vanishing media freedom in Hungary and vanishing EU journalism in Germany.

He is the only one who can fight back against old eurosceptic myths in the British media and he is the only one who can convince the Commission that freedom of speech is a case for antitrust law.

He who cares for the east and the south will have to fix asylum problems for Serbs and he who governs a great European nation will need to make the German-Chinese alliance an EU-China alliance. In a week in which the EU Court sided with member states against gambling, he was the only one with the guts to play the game in favour of the Union.

Now he who loves democracy will have to take the map of EU lobbyists and follow each of them into their dreams and haunt them until they are convinced the EUterus is not one of death but one of life – and then the red and white flag will eternally wave in the wind of European history.

(Or he will fail and the red and white flag will be the one of Denmark, posted at closed border stations where hordes of German and Swedish criminals will be fought back fiercely with tons of Marmite.)

Sorry not to focus on the text itself: but that’s an amazing photo – excellent quality (colors, composition, angle), only downside is the shoulder of the person next to him.

It’s interesting to see that nowadays an organisation like the EPP offers (not only) to bloggers a current-affairs photo which would previously only have been available through high-cost photo agencies.

I wish all the best to Tusk! I know that Poland has been working very hard to prepare its presidency. I really hope this will bear fruit!
