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. 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. Like most Belgians I am a natural cultural chameleon, and I truly think of myself foremost as a "European". And I am deeply, deeply concerned.
