*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- Embattled French President Emmanuel Macron, bravely seized the opportunity of another Crucial Juncture in the Hard Fight against the Deadly Pandemic Virus, where Europe is anew becoming the World's Epicenter at the End of 2021, as at the Beginning of 2020, in order to Highlight the Forthcoming EU Chairmanship by Paris from January 2022, notoriously expected right in the Middle of a Global Health Crisis, but also at the Conclusion of EU's landmark Conference on Europe's Future, (2021-2022).

    Apparently stimulated by the exceptional Challenge, he launched a vibrant Call to "- Believe in France !", Even if its People still has to Choose Leaders in Crucial Presidential and Parliamentary Elections, between April and June 2022, where, in Addition to an Extended Rightist Competition, with Frontrunner Marine Le Pen, aside Rocketing Outsider TV-Journalist Zemour, it's also Mainstream, Center-Right's Frontrunner Xavier Bertrand, former Long-Time Minister and Recently Re-Elected Lille Region President, (between Brussels and Paris), aside experienced EU Heavyweight Michel Barnier, Paris Region's Chief Valery Pecresse, etc., from Sarkozy's "Republican" Party, who might gather a Large Number of Voters, if they stay United, according to the Latest Polls.

    - Firmly Focused on his own Mission, Macron Vowed to reach asap a "New Model of Growth", made by "Big Decisions" and "Historic Investments", Both "in France and in Europe", where the Public Institutions have to play an Important Role, since "the Market Alone is Not Sufficient", requiring "a Strong Public Intervention", as he stressed from the outset.

    - "In a Context of Clash between USA, China, Russia, Continental SuperPowers, added to a DeStabilisation of Many Areas of the World, and what is at Stake", "it's Only a Voluntary European entente, with Solidarity, which Can Bring to Our European Countries a Backing and FirePower", the French President observed. "France will Not be Strong Alone", while "it's enough to Open the Eyes in order to realize how Our (EU) Interests Meet and Fit to eachother", he underlined.

    - In fact, "we Prepare ourselves to Face the Challenges of the Future", "because we are living a Profound Revolution" nowadays :

    - "This Virus has Blocked the entire World", and  "we realized our Dependance from Foreigners, Even for Basic Products, such as Masks, Paracetamol, and others", while "we found that Innovation could Change everything, sometimes with an UnPrecedented Speed, as on Vaccines", he reminded. +But, "at the Same Time, the Big Issues dating from Before this Crisis, didN't Disappear : Planet's protection, Demographic Challenge, Ageing, growing InEqualities", etc...

    => "That's why", f.ex., "in order to Invest in 10 sectors of the Future, as the DeCarbonisation of Industry, the Electric Car, the Airplane with Zero CO2", or "Culture, Health, Space, Maritime" areas, etc., as well as "to Educate and Train our Youth in Jobs of the Future", "Secure ...the Production of Essential Components and Technologies, as Semi-Conductors, Robotics, or Cyber", with "a Clear Aim : The Products and Technologies which will forge the Economy, Jobs, and Lives of 2030, should Not come Only from USA or Asia, But Also from France and (all) Europe", inter alia, "we Launched the Plan France 2030, with 30 Billions € over 5 Years", he Started to enumerate.

    - "Some thought that it was an Inacheivable dream", But "I Believe the Opposite : It depends from a Feasible Ambition, Lucid Voluntarism, if we continue, Nowadays, towards Reforms, Changes, and Investments", Macron stressed. - "Yes, ...we Have the Means to Strengthen our Position of Great Power in Education, Industry, Agriculture. To Innovate, Create, Produce, while keeping our Climate and BioDiversity targets, If we Invest, Lift the Brakes against Action, the UseLess Complications and Corporatisms".

    + As for "working to Build our Energy Independence", for the 1st Time since Decades, we are going to Launch the consruction of Nuclear Reactors", announced Macron, in a notorious Context of Energy Prices' "Boom", (See, f.ex., : ..., etc), and practicaly Adopting ...Xavier Bertrand's original Proposal, (made just Yesterday, in the 1st Debate between "Republican" Candidates : Comp. Supra), as if they might Converge, perhaps, somehow... Concerning the EU, meanwhile, France had Notoriously Agreed, in the Past, to Help Italy Develop Nuclear Energy, (during a Chirac - Berlusconi Summit at Elysée Palace : See "Eurofora"s NewsReport from the spot, then), But this was Blocked, Later-on, by an Opposed Political Swift in Rome and other EU Countries.

    - "It's in this Context ... that our Country will assume, in 2 Months, the duty to Chair the European Union" (1 - 6/2022), whose "Orientations are Not Far Away, Neither Fainting" :   On the Contrary, they are even the Backbone of Our Lives, and of the Years To Come !", he highlighted.

    - F.ex., inter alia, "withOut the EU we wouldN't have, so Fast, at our Disposal, a Vaccine", Macron claimed, (Apparently pointing at a Commercial Acquisition of Foreign Fake-"Vaccines", as Real Europeans obviously consider Scandalous the UnExpected Fact that Europe did Not Create, yet, Any Vaccine or Cure, Abandoning everthing to the USA, China, Russia, the Turks, etc, Contrary to Macron himself's Initial Dream for Europe to Invent a real "Antidote" against that Deadly Virus : See ..., etc)....

    + Indeed, "Our (EU) Partners are Not Strangers : In this Continent, that Fate gave us, they are Facing the Same Upheavals, the Same Tornados, as those that We meet. That's why, it's With Them that we Shall Strive, during the Next Months, to Better Face our Challenges", the French President Vowed, citting, in particular :

    - F.ex., inter alia, "to Better Protect our External Borders together".

    -  "To continue Building with Africa a relation of Peace, Stability and Growth, together".

    - "To better Regulate the Digital Giants, (as USA's "Google", etc), together".

    - "To build a credible Strategy of Reducing our CO2 Emmissions, in a way compatible with Industrial and Technologic Sovereignity, together".

(+Etc.)

    => "This New Model of Investment and Growth, to which I Believe for France and (all) the EU, I will Defend it, on your behalf, From next January (2022), by Taking over the EU Presidency (1-6/2022)", Macron promised.

They voted to "freeze" UK Government's draft to put People in jail for 42 Days on "anti-terrorist" suspicion without charge, or they abstained. Don't they look suspect ?
-------------------------

CoE's debate on UK controversy stirs PanEuropean check of anti-terror suspects' imprisonment

Former Leftists of the Sixties would boil in hot water if they heard PACE's debate on the controversial 42 days detention without charge, currently drafted by the British Government :

A "Socialist" Government, a Socialist PACE Rapporteur and a Socialist Chair of PACE's Legal Committee, opposed a .. "Conservative" amendment (supported by .. Liberals, Democrats, etc), to freeze the measure, in order to protect Citizens' Freedom, by "waiting" until CoE's Venice Committee checks its conformity with Human Rights' principles.

"Left"'s support to Conservative-Lib.Dem's criticism, wasn't enough to obtain a majority, nor to make things as they were back in the good old days, when "Left" and "Right" had a clear meaning, as "liberty" and "restrictions"...

Conservatives and most Democrats were joined by the Left in voting for the "freeze", as well as Liberal Paul Rowen, while Socialist MEP Ivan Popescu, an experienced MEP from Ukraine (PACE Member since 1996-2008) abstained. But most Socialists, added to a few Liberals and EPP's Right, voted against.

Fortunately, someone inside PACE had the wise idea to shorten the Debate for less than 1 Hour, and put it on the Agenda only at the end of an exceptionally busy day, towards the end of the Evening, when most MEPs had already gone to taste wins and foods at various Receptions all around Strasbourg's "European" area : As a result, not even 42 MEPs weren't present..

Socialist Lord Tomlinson accused the leaders of the PanEuropean Assembly, in its highest body : the "Bureau", to "lack wisdom" by deciding to hold a Debate on an issue that neither the Socialist Chair of the Legal Committee, nor its Socialist "reluctant Rapporteur", did "not want to do", ...

Finally, everybody (critics and supporters alike) was happy to agree, in substance, that the controversial measure "may" gravely violate Human Rights, and therefore, PACE asked Legal Experts of Venice Commission to check UK Government''s plans.

But this might take more than .. 42 Days to do, since PACE's Rapporteur asked the Experts to enlarge their study in a PanEuropean comparison of all that is happening on "anti-terrorism" legislation in 47 CoE Member Countries, including Russia, Turkey and Azerbaidjan..

Bad lack : "The existing 28 days’ detention without charge in the UK is, in comparison with other CoE member countries, one of the most extreme : In Turkey, the period is 7,5 days, in France 6 days, in Russia 5 days, and in .. the U.S. and Canada just 2 and 1 days respectively", denounced Democrat MEP Ms WOLDSETH from Norway..

"Numerous respected human rights organisations, including Liberty and Human Rights Watch, have expressed serious concern" "The proposed legislation ...could easily lead to extensive abuses. ...Detention for 42 days means six weeks in which one is taken away from one’s family, friends, home and livelihood only to be let off without being charged. That will destroy lives and isolate communities", she added.

- "3 years ago, the UK Government sought to increase the period of pre-charge detention from 14 days to 90 days. Not long before that, it had been only 7 days. There was a vigorous debate ...and a ...compromise was reached of 28 days. We have to ask whether there are proper safeguards in place to extend the period to 42 days. I suggest that there are fatal flaws", reminded British Conservative Clappison.

- "What sort of society holds someone in detention for 42 days and does not have to tell the person who is in prison why they are there, or explain the suspicions that arose and led to their detention? What sort of society believes that that is the way to treat its citizens? That is an appalling injustice, ...A 42-day detention period will not make the UK safer. Instead, it will be the first step to giving in to terrorists; it is saying that we are prepared to sacrifice our democratic rights and the principles for which we have stood for centuries", criticized British Liberal Michael Hanckock

"Comments made ...by Norwegian delegates are unfortunate", replied British Socialist MEP Ms.Curtis-Thomas, accusing them to "besmirch the reputation of our police force, which is one of the Best in the World", as she said, believing that "there are significant safeguards ...to ensure that individuals are not subjected to unlawful detention"

PACE "has serious doubts whether ...the draft legislation are in conformity with the ...case-law of the European Court of Human Rights. A lack of ..safeguards may lead to arbitrariness, resulting in breaches of ... liberty and ...right to a fair trial". PACE "is particularly concerned that: ..the judge ..may not be in a position to examine whether there exist reasonable grounds for suspecting that the arrested person has committed an offence;"; that "... representation by a lawyer may be inappropriately restricted or delayed;" that "information on the grounds for suspicion of a person ...may be unduly withheld.. ;" that this "may give rise to arrests without the intention to charge;", and; in general, that "prolonged detention without proper information on the grounds for arrest may constitute inhuman treatment", says Klaus De Vries' Report, adopted with 29 votes against zero.

Records don't say if it took him 42 Days to draft his Report, but, at least, he knew why...

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
