British business community responded to increasing anti-EU political rhetoric. Does British business community has a potential to significantly influence the debate on the future of UK in the EU and how?
Spanish El Pais was just recently forced to retract Chancellor Merkel comparison to Hitler. Frankly speaking, I find this kind of comparison totally idiotic.

According to this poll a large majority of Italians are in favor of staying in the Eurozone they do not even want a formal referendum on staying in the Eurozone. But on the other hand lot of Italians voted for Grillo, Berlusconi, for politicians critical towards the EU, Eurozone. Would you say it is a contradiction or not, and why?
Some people claim Beppe Grillo is the only winner in Italian vote. It seem that Grillo basically doesn’t have any real political plan (not to mention something like foreign policy agenda), he is even more vague than other politicians, he is very successful in using social media, his supporters claim that they could not be defined as left or right-win, he call himself a populist. Would you say that the similar movements like Grillo’s have a real future in the European politics or not, and why?
But the EU also need decisiveness. Zbigniew Brzezinski just recently said that Europe needs today much more evocative forward-looking leadership of the kind it had some decades ago and which today is lacking. We hear this argument about leadership pretty often, but what it means in your opinion? What kind of leadership does Europe need? It is hard to deny that we need some leadership but the situation it pretty different then e.g. 50 years ago, in the time of Élysée Treaty.
