What we're talking about

Postcard from Strasbourg by Richard Steel

Being called a Berlusconi seems to be the greatest insult imaginable in the Socialist book of slurs. S&D President Gianni Pittella compared the provocative threats from the Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Orban, to reintroduce the death penalty, with the “endless string of improbable statements” made by Il Cavaliere over the years.

Brexit – keep calm and find a deal

Brussels –the city of deals, and it will need the mother of all deals to prevent the UK drifting off into the mid-Atlantic and leaving the EU. The Brexit question is firmly centre stage following David Cameron’s surprise election victory and the question is no longer if but when.

A Digital Single Market Will Need Smarter Regulation to Succeed.

Vice-President Ansip addressed the tech sector in Hannover in March proclaiming a digital revolution and on the 6th of May he will lay out a Digital Single Market Package which the Commission hopes will bring revolutionary benefits to Europe’s economy. Vice-President Ansip rightly underlined in his Hannover speech that smart technology and businesses need smart regulation - existing and new regulation has to be fit for purpose in the digital world. This would be a good starting point for the Commission’s digital agenda.
