A cry for Europe

Fred Destin

From refusing the outcome of referendums (Ireland) to timorous and hypocritical foreign policy, Europe is being killed by a culture of weak consensus. Again, the current state of denial means no politician is able to state a simple fact, that a system designed to fund pensions at 60 when life expectancy was less than 70 and we were having babies is an impossible burden when life expectancy exceeds 80.
