Putting the cart before the horse - that's how I interpret this "Manifesto for a more democratic Europe" published in Le Monde.
Where is the VISION for a renewed Europe which can win back the hearts of citizens? In times of shifting global power relations, climate change, resource constraints and continued neo-liberal austerity attacks on the middle classes, how can Europe protect the future wellbeing of its citizens?
And where are the innovative ideas for more democracy? A chosen EU Commission President? Old wine in old bags. What we need is much more than this "business as usual" with a bit more democracy.
