We have seen these stories about the possible campaign which should discourage people from Romania and Bulgaria from coming to the UK. And also a mocking anti-campaign from Romanian paper Gandul. What does it tell us about the UK perception of Romania and Bulgaria and vice versa?
Would you say that soon to be ex-President Vaclav Klaus may play a significant role on the Czech political scene in the future (perhaps with some help of Milos Zeman) and what kind of role?
Queen Beatrix is to stand down on April 30. I have been thinking about it for some time, the Queen said. I am not standing down because the role is too heavy for me, but in the conviction that responsibility for our country should now lie with a new generation.

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.

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.
