  1. Dutch populist surge. https://www.euractiv.com/section/eu-elections-2019/news/new-dutch-populists-surge-in-rutte-referendum/
  2. Polls mean nothing on this topic. As I have mentioned before. And Parliaments recent voting appears to back this up.
  3. It could be worse Macron received the Charlemagne award last year, greater good of Europe etc, while trying to screw his own.
  4. I bet the Brussels main players would like to share it..... fat chance.
  5. It's not looking rosy. Bank merger job losses, and Auto maker job losses as ev manufacturing increase require fewer workers. Naturally vw says tax subs should be increased for their preferred size of ev.
  6. Plus the Tories who abstained. The vote was a lot closer than Mays deal.
  7. How close was the no deal vote? Maybe best to run that one again.
  8. No they have not ended. They are due to end by 2020 for existing companies. And your claim about irish growth was misleading, it was tax schemes in the main. Let's see if the Irish try another one.
  9. Irish double sandwich distorts. Let's see how the Irish react when it is closed by the EU, as it will be at some point.
  10. Sounds like a competition. Most European? How long before they hold a flag waving rally with daft salutes. Underneath the hyperbole this lot a far right. Worrying times. first EU Media Literacy Week will kick off next week The first EU Media Literacy week will take place from 18 – 22 March, with more than 200 events in Brussels and all around Europe. This Commission initiative aims to promote media literacy and support the fight against disinformation. Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society Mariya Gabriel said: “In Europe, the teaching of Media Literacy is not systematic, it is often difficult for our citizens to distinguish between true and false information. We trust we must together support media literacy in order to ensure pluralism, inclusion and better defend our values. We have to further empower citizens to make informed choices and participate more effectively in the democratic process. This is why the European Commission is launching the first European Media Literacy Awards.” For the latter awards, more than 130 participants are competing with media literacy projects in three categories: most educative, most European, and most innovative projects. The awards ceremony will take place during a high-level conference on 19 March in Brussels, which will bring together European institutions, audiovisual regulators, media experts, journalists, representatives of Member States and citizens in order to discuss the role of media literacy navigating the modern news environment, the evolution of quality journalism in the digital world, sources of support from public authorities, and technological innovations. More information on the awards, the conference and local activities that are part of #EUMediaLiteracyWeek is available here.

  11. Just shows how worried they are. If all was going swimmingly well this would not be important. Totally out of touch with the masses. Europe that Protects: implementing the EU's Action Plan against disinformation and measures to secure free and fair elections [updated 15/03/19 at 13:20] With the European elections fast approaching, the European Commission and the European External Action Service, in coordination and cooperation with the other EU institutions and EU Member States, have stepped up their action to make sure that our citizens' choices are free from manipulation, disinformation, or any interference coming from inside or outside the EU. To this end, implementation of the EU Action Plan against disinformation, presented by the Commission and the High Representative on 5 December 2018, is fully underway. Furthermore, in February 2019 the Commission published reports by Facebook, Google and Twitter (signatories of the Code of Practice), covering the progress made on their commitments to fight disinformation. On this occasion, the Commission asked the platforms to accelerate their efforts as well as to do more across all Member States to help ensure the integrity of the European Parliament elections in May 2019.Vice-President Ansip, Commissioners Jourová, King, and Gabriel will meet representatives of online platforms on Tuesday to discuss further progress on the implementation of the Code of Practice. On Monday, the Rapid Alert System, which was one of the key deliverables under the Action Plan, will be launched. The Rapid Alert System aims to strengthen coordination, analysis and joint responses to disinformation through creating a dedicated digital platform for a network of contact points from the 28 EU Member States and the EU institutions, working in close cooperation with the European Election Cooperation Network. Following up on the measures presented to secure free and fair elections as part of the State of the Union Address of President Juncker in September 2018, Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality, Věra Jourová, has written to national political parties calling on them to ensure transparency of political advertising, to be ready to face cyberattacks and to respect European data protection rules during the campaign.(For more information: Nathalie Vandystadt – Tel.: +32 229 67083; Christian Wigand– Tel.: +32 229 62253; Maja Kocijancic – Tel.: +32 229 86570)
