A cry for Europe
MARCH 17, 2010
Absence of Political Leadership. It's impossible not to feel disenchanted by the travesty of leadership that the European Union presents to the world and its citizens. From refusing the outcome of referendums (Ireland) to timorous and hypocritical foreign policy, Europe is being killed by a culture of weak consensus. As the reality of my move to the US in July comes into focus, I have started to look at the "old continent" with an increased sense of poignancy.
