*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- An embattled but apparently reVigorated French President Emmanuel Macron, just After Facing even Personaly a Virus' Infection, that he Succeeded to Overcome, Becoming Naturaly Immune, Urged Today to "Look to the Future", foreseeing a "New French Morning", and a "European ReNaissance", Starting by somewhere through 2021, towards a "2030" Horizon "to Build".

- "That's where We are Heading", he Stressed, Launching a Call to "the "People" to be "United, with Solidarity, Proud of our History, its Values and its Culture, Trusting in Future and Progress, Sure of its Talent, Energy and Ambition, Whatever it happens, Let's Be Proud. Proud to be "Us", the Young Franco-European Leader Ambitiously Concluded.

- "We must Not Add to the Cost of the (Pandemic Virus) Crisis, Even a Lack of Action", he Warned. On the Contrary, "we Must Continue to Act, Transform, Advance ahead, ... by Fighting against the Virus, by Fighting against its Economic and Social Consequences", in order to "Build" the Future, Macron Highlighted.

- "Hope is Alive in the Freedom that we shall Find Anew, in the Strength of Our Culture, ...even in the Lessons that we'll get From this Crisis, for More Simplicity, Efficiency, and, sometimes, Just Common Sense", he Soberly pointed out.

- Indeed, "Hope is Here, Growing Every Day, in this (Socio-Economic) ReLaunch, which is Already Sparking", "and Will Allow, from the Spring (2021), to Invent a Stronger Economy, Both Creating Jobs, and More Innovative, more Respectful of Climate, BioDiversity, as well as of Solidarity", he promised.

- Meanwhile, speaking of "Vaccines", he Vowed to be, "Fully Determined", "to Not Let Anyone Play with the Safety and Good Conditions, in which Vaccinations must take place, With Our Scientists and Medical Doctors", as he Ensured the People, (Despite Hasty Moves by some USA and EU Agencies, who recently Rushed to Grasp some Controversial First-Commers, among Many and Various Kinds of Vaccines currently in Preparation, withOut having Even Discussed, Previously, some Probable New Questions of Crucial Importane for People's Health and for the Society at large, as "Eurofora" Warned Twice, with Concrete Facts and Arguments : See ... + ..., etc).

+ But "I will Not Let, an UnJustified Delay to be imposed for Bad Reasons, No More", he Added, Promissing that "Everyone who Wishes to become Vaccinated, must be Able to do so", "with Certainty, and in a Good Order, Starting by those Who Face More Risks", (i.e. Medical Staff, Elders and Other Fragile People, etc).

- "Already", we "crossed this Year (2020) with Unity and Resilience, to which Nothing Resists". Despite "these Hard Times", We "were Able to Innnovate, Invent", and "be Generous", so that "Everything becomes Possible", he Optimisticaly encouraged. So that, "in 2021, whatever happens, We Shall Know how to Face the (various) Crisis : Sanitary, Socio-Economic, Terrorist, Climate's", etc., "which are Not going to Disappear just after the January 1st..." he Warned. On the Contrary, "the First Months of this Yeart Will be Didfficult, and the Epidemic will Still Hamper a Lot against our Social Life", Macron soberly Warned.

-è But, "in 2021, whatever happens, We shall Also Know how to Face the Challenges to come, Because we have been Prepared for that" : F.ex.,

(1) "the Ecological Transition and Protection of the BioDiversity, by applying Proposals of the <<Citizens' Convention>>", (an Original Participatory Attempt, Recently set up in France), "and Other Reforms";

(2) "The Fight for the Republic and Our Values, the Secular society, Brotherhood, More Security";

(3) "Advance in our Commitment for Merit, Work, Equality of Chances, Fight Against All InEqualities and Dicriminations".

- "The Trials that we Faced, Might have Reduced our Enthousiasm, Limit Hope. But this is Not the case !" On the Contrary, "Hope is here", he Voluntaristicaly stressed.

-------------------------

    But, Unfortunately, Some Technocrats seem to have Lied, at least on 1 Important Point, to the Young President of France, by Hiding him the Truth...

    Because he was led to go on Believing that - "Hope is in this Vaccine, that the Human Genius made in Only 1 Year", while "this was UnThinkable, some Months Ago !".

    However, the Truth is that "Pfizer"'s Turkish Fake-"Vaccine", is Not Really a "Vaccine", (But anOther Kind of Novel Medical Tool), Since,

- Even if it Might, Perhaps, Leave the Individuals who Receive it, withOut Symptoms of the Virus, (at least for a 3 Months-Long Period, since, as things stand Nowadays, it canNot Yet Guarantee a Longer Protection Time, for the moment),

- >>> Nevertheless, there is Not Yet Any Guarantee at all, concerning the Open Still Question : Whether it Might, or Not, Stop the Spreading of the Virus vis a vis All the Other People in the Society !

    Because, in Fact, due to the Novel, Particular Technology used here, (via m-ARN Manipulation, inside the Human Genome, Artificialy Triggering the Production of a Key Protein), Nothing is Yet Known about What Might Happen regarding all the Other People, who could be Contacted, Afterwards, by the Recipient...

=> In Consequence, this Might, Even, ...Aggravate the Spread of Virus' Infections in a Society, Because the Recipents may Refuse any "Quarantine", since they are Asymptomatic, and, in Addition, all the Other People may be "Blind" or UnWare of this Threat Against their own Health and Life, as long as Nobody Knows Yet about the Danger that those Recipients might Still Present to the Society in a kind of "Stealth" or "Covert" way !

    "Eurofora" has Clearly Warned, (Oraly at 2 EU Press Encounters, and by Web-Published Articles Twice : See http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/pfijfyjhjh.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/fdaandcontroversialvirusvaccines.html, etc), what Some Others had Just Vaguely and Briefly Evoked, (including "Los Angeles Times", "the Guardian", "AP", "Naftemporiki.gr", "FDA"s Documents in the "Pfizer"/Turkish case, etc). And this kind of "New Problem", UnPrecedented in Real Vaccine's History, (to the point to be UnConceivable by Un-Warned People !), has just Started to be aNew Observed, (particularly Disguised under a Confusing Vocabulary around "Asymptomatic" Individuals, etc., But sometimes even Directly), somehow Better in "FDA"'s more Recent Documents on "Moderna"s Armenian Similar Pseudo-"Vaccine", (But Still InSufficiently visible), as well as more or less Mentioned, Briefly, in Various Other Short Publications, (f.ex. on Israel : See "Breitbart", or by "Statista" Web-News, etc).

    => In Consequence, a Great Precaution is due in Dealing with so UnCertain, still, Novel Issues, of UnKnown Yet Dimension, Instead of Misleading a Leader with Grossly Inacurate or False Impressions, as Someone seems to have Scandalously done here, apparently Abusing of the Trust of the Young French President, (despite of his intelligence)...

    These Facts do Not Exclude at all the, Otherwise, great Importance of Macron's General Statements, (Comp. Supra and Infra), But "Eurofora", by Journalistic Deontology and simple Human and Social Obligation, including by Respect to the French President himself, had the Duty to simply Say the Truth, in a so Serious matter for People's Health and Lives.

-----------------------------------------------------

    + More Convincing, Macron Innovated, in his Speech, by Describing 10 Original Stories of Simple People, who followed various "Exemplary Pathways", serving as "Compass for Future Times", "Revealed by the Epidemic" of Deadly Virus :

- Calling Each one by their Names, from a Young Nurse, eager to Serve face the Urgencies, to a Cleaning Lory Driver working round the ckock at far away Guyane, or an SME Businessman rapidly ReConverting his Factory in order to meet a Fast Growing Demand for Protective Masks, a Kid Giving his Tablet in order to Help Isolated Elder People Communicate with their Family and Friends, (making Many Followers), a Book-Keeper "Innovating" with Internet Networks in order to Succesfully reach her Clients, added to a Policeman atruggling, at a Rural area, to Urgently Save the Lives of 70 Elder People from the an Inundated Facility, added to his Collegues who Stopped a Terrorist Attack against a Church, and to 3 Other Policemen Killed while Trying to Help a Woman Victim of Aggressive Violence, as well as another 3 Soldiers Killed during an Operation at Africa's Mali : all Named "National Heroes", But Also a Foreign Origin Professor seeking advice from his French Collegues on how to Speak to his Pupils about "Secular" Society's Values, just After the Horrible Murder of Samuel Patty by a Coward Islamist Terrorist, (in the "Mohamed Cartoons" and "Free Speach" row), in order to Help Raise Young Republicans, added to a Woman Football Player, Leading her Team to Win a Champions' 1st Prize, in the middle of Obstacles for Training and Empty Stadiums, Concluding by that 78 Years Old Woman, Isolated at a Care Facility, who Dared become the 1st French to take a (Controversial : Comp. Supra) "Vaccine" against the Virus, giving "a Message of Hope" this year, (etc),

    => Emmanuel Macron Found a Rock-Solid Ground among those Brave, simple French People, those "Thousands of Anonymous" actors, Looking "like Your Sister, Your Neighbour, Your Friends", and Many Others who, "Committed, and with Solidarity, Supported Our Country during this Harsh Trial", as he stressed. "Everything is Possible for a People Able, during those Difficult Times, of such Innovation, Inventivity, Generosity"...

    Such a Voluntaristicaly Optimist Tone by the Young French President, in his New Year's Eve Speech, Significantly, comes After China has Notoriously Won the Fight against the Virus Earlier, throughout that Huge, 1,3 Billions People - Strong Country, Even WithOut Any "Miraculous" Pseudo-"Vaccine", Neither Any Novel "Drug" Yet , Nor a "Dr. Fauci", etc., But just a Strong, Conscious and Motivated Socio-Political Will                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       to Fight all Together for Humanity's Survival facing an imminent Deadly Threat... Not that a Good and Efficient High-Tech might not be needed, (in fact it Does, a Lot), But rather Because it Must be Always Guided by Human Consience, Forged in a consequent, Collective Fight, and  Free Public Topical Debates, Stimulating the Best Collective Intelligence, that France and all Europe are Able to offer..., (as "Eurofora" had Already a Chance to Evoke with President Macron, at Various Occasions, including with the Nearby Vosges Mountains' Oxygen, when, just After a Landmark Speech at EU Parliament, he had Officialy Launched the so-called "European Citizens' Public Consultations"' 1st Attempt, Comp., f.ex., at : ..., etc).                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

---------------------------------------

    - However, at any case, "This (Last) Year 2020 canNot be Resumed Only in that Epidemic, Even if it Changed our Lives", Macron observed. Because, Despite such Big Challenges, "We managed to conduct the Necessary Transformations, and Strengthen our Credibility", as well as "convince Germany, and Afterwards the Other EU Member Countries, to conceive a(n EU) Relaunch Plan, Unique and Masssive, and Decide a Joint Debt with Solidarity, in order to Better Prepare Our (EU's) Future, by a Commitment to Ecologic and Digital Transitions, as well as by Creating the Greatest Possible Number of Jobs for Our Youth", he Reminded, (Obviously speaking of the July 2020 EU Brussel's -Longest Ever- Summit : See at: .... + ... +...., etc).

    - "That's what We have Built in 2020", he stressed. Because, "Our Destiny is, First of all, in Europe !". Naturaly, "Our Sovereignity is National, and I'll do everything in order to Find anew the Control over our Destiny and Lives", he Vowed. "But, Our (France's) Sovereignity goes, Also, Through a Stronger Europe, More Autonomous, More United", Macron clearly stressed.

    + Regardless of that, meanwhile, "ToNight, for the 1st Time, a Country : the UK, will Leave the EU", he noted. Indeed, "We (the EU) have Agreed, some Days Ago, a Deal, in order to Organize our Future Relations with it (the UK), by Defending Our Interests, Our Industries, Our Fishermen, and Our European Unity", as he said.

    => However, "the UK Remains Our Neighbour, But Also Our Friend, and Our Ally !", the French President clearly underlined. In Fact, "that Choice, to Leave Europe, that "BREXIT", was Born out of a European Ill-Feeling, with Many Lies, and False Promisses", he Criticized. (On this Occasion : See Anew "Eurofora"s Original Overview and NewsReport Published at the Moment of that 2016 British Referendum on Brexit, where, We Point at Surprizing Facts Showing that, most Probably, the Real Aspirations of a Majority of British People were Not Against Europe, But, rather, in Favour of a -Not Achieved Yet- Real Europe ! Comp. at : ...).

---------------------------------

    - "Concerning the Last Year, "2020", "Yes", it's True that "this Year Was Hard : It Reminded Our Vulnerabilities", he Acnowledged, meanwhile, Macron, (while All Europe, UK and even Russia Included, have Notoriously Become the ...Epicenter of that Pandemic Crisis, since March 2020)...                                                                                                                                 

    - However, things "were Even More UnJust for the Most Fragile People", he Regreted. Indeed, "I Think at All those Fellow Citizens, who live in Precarious Situations, Sometimes in Poverty, for whom the Crisis that we are crossing makes EveryDay Lives Even More Difficult", Macron acknowledged.

    >>> - "But, Together, We Manage Better United, and have Learned a lot". Indeed; "We are Grateful to those who have been Mobilized in order to Take Care, Feed, Educate, Protect, All those who, by their Work, their Commitment, Allowed us to Stand at Our Feet, and Together, during those Difficult Months, and who do the Same thing Even ToNight" : i.e. "Our Fellow Citizens Working in the Sectors of Culture, Sport, Restoration, Hôtels, Events, or suffering Students, Affected even More than others : I Want to Tell them that We'll Be There, Naturaly in order to Help them Get Out of this Situation, the Soonest", "and in order to Allow them to Hold on, during that Period, so Hard and UnJust for them, where we ask them to Work Differently, and Sometimes, Even to Renounce to their Activities", he Regretted....

    >>> However, "this Historic Test has Also Revealed Our Solidity : " Indeed, "Despite that Pandemic, We have Never Renounced to pursue Our Ambition of Progress for Everyone", inter alia, also, f.ex., "by Lowering Taxes, by Opening New Rights, (like the Leave for those who Help Others, the Prolongation of Paternity Leave), by Supporting them with Subsidies, by ReConverting our Cars parc, by Opening "French Services Houses" throughout the Territories, by Investing in Our Sovereignity and Our Research in an Historic way, by striving to Produce More inside France and (all) Europe", etc. While "Our Care-Takers (Medical Staff) have Not Only Coped, Butwe have Also Engaged a Transformation in Depth, with Historic Investments, For our Health, whose Pertinence Will be Revealed During the Next few Years". In fact, "We are among those who have Most Intervened in order to Protect and accompagny the Young People, the Workers, the Businessmen", etc. And "I assume that "WhatEver it Might Cost", Because it has Allowed to Save Lives, and Protect Jobs", Macron ensured.

    + Nowadays, "We have to Build Together those Replies which Will Allow to Avoid any Heavy Burden for the Future Generations", he Warned, however.

    - But, "Today, it's Not a December 31st As All Others... There, where, in Our Cities and Villages, this Hour is Usually for Large Gatherings", on the Contrary, "this Year, they are Prohibited by the Epidemic : Our Communal Squares are withOut Lights, our Housholds Less Cheerfull than usual", and "the Year 2020 Ends, therefore, as it had Started : By Efforts and Restrictions. And I'm fully Aware of the Sacrifices that I Asked You to do, by the Decisions that I Had to take..." Also, in the Name of All the People, "let's Think, ToNight, at those 64.000 Victims of the Virus" (in France alone), "their Families and Friends : Parents, Friends, integral Parts of the French Imaginary (f.ex. Artists, Writers, Top Politicians, Athlets, etc), have Left away, these Last Months", he regretted.

     - Nevertheless, President Macron "Thanked" the People "for Your Civic Sens" and "that Spirit of Collective Responsibility, thanks to which We have Saved a Lot of (other) Lives, and which Allows us, Nowadays, to Hold Better than many others, in Front of the Epidemic" as he said.

    - So that, Now, "Together, United, Let's Look Ahead of us, Look towards the Future", in order "to Prepare, Today, that Spring of 2021", (Comp. Supra), so that "2021 Becomes a Happy and Useful Year", Macron Invited in Conclusion.

3 EU Parliament votes to boost EuroGroup !

---------------------------------

After EuroZone Paris Summit's succes, Sarkozy calls to "think anew how to re-construct Europe !

"EuroZone and EU Institutional debates pave the way to 2009 discussions on EU Future, including Enlargment, Turkey etc. ?


23 October 2008

After EU Parliament strongly suppported in 3 successive Votes this week in Strasbourg French EU Chairmanship's move to boost Euro-Group at EU's core, while ideas on EU Institutional problems are awaited on December, "it's an open Question now" if this may lead to a debate on EU's Future, or not, told us French President, Nicolas Sarkozy''s Spokesman, Pierre-Jerome Henin.

MEPs voted on Thursday fresh Funds to support EuroGroup, after adopting on Wednesday a Resolution asking a "further Evolution" to "the 1st ever meeting of Heads of State and of Government of the Euro-Zone, taking decisions in that capacity", while earlier this week a Report asked "a stronger Institutional setting" for "EuroGroup", extended from "competitiveness/industry" to "environment, employment and education", with "increased powers for Political decision-making", according to a text drafted by French MEP Francoise Beres and German MEP Werner Langen, "10 Years after the creation of Euro" (1999 - 2009).

- Brussels' subsequent "EU Council ..(simply)..ratified the measures decided by EuroGroup on October 12" in Paris, which "were necessary to contain the current Financial Crisis", Resolution observes, expressing also support to the new process succesfully initiated by Sarkozy and due to be completed by agreements with USA and other countries at a Global level.

From now on, it's between two differend but parallel moves : EU's delay, and EuroZone's acceleration, that Enlargement and particularly Turkey's controversial EU bid, will have to search its way :

Indeed, EU's 27 expect a "Roadmap on how to deal with the Irish problem" on Lisbon Treaty ratification after December, risking to pass even 2009 Elections and next Commission with the old Nice Treaty of 2000, out-dated and unfit even for 2004's Enlargement...

On the contrary, EU's core launches a real "Economic Governance for EuroZone at the highest level of Heads of State/Government" of the 15, which started in Paris on October 12 and was strongly supported this week in Strasbourg by Sarkozy and EU Parliament.
----------
- "It's a good idea, to launch such a debate ("on EU's Future") in EU Parliament in view of 2009 Euro-Election : Perhaps some MEPs will seize an opportunity", told us mainstream French MEP Alain Lamassoure, former EU Minister and EU Spokesman for France's governing party UMP.

- "All MEPs' debates on such EU Councils are also part of the larger debate on Europe's future : Now with EuroZone, and even more when, on December, Irish Prime Minister is due to table proposals in Strasbourg on how to deal with EU Treaty's ratification", replied earlier to our question EU Parliament's Press Director and Spokesman, Jaume Duch.
--------------------------------------
Sarkozy has formally anounced his intention to open EU Debates on Economy, Identity/Enlargement (i.e. mainly Turkey), etc. both linked to a popular Political view of Europe, since his Historic speeches on EU in Strasbourg, on February and July 2007, when he stressed that "Europe needs a New Renaissance". At the beginning of the French EU Presidency, on July 2008, replying to a MEP, he suggested that EU Parliament takes an active part in Debates on EU's Future.

- Now, in 2008, "Crisis are an opportunity to re-think how to re-construct Europe", Sarkozy stressed. At any case, the Historic 1st EuroZone Summit of Heads of State/Government, which started replying to the Financial crisis,"is a Turning Point : After that, Europe cannot be governed as before, but differently" : People "like a Europe with Strong Will".

- "We must make the System move !", "Europe needs Innovation" and free political debates. EU "Elections are in a few Months", Sarkozy warned.

He invited EU Parliament to fully play its role as "the Democratic Heart of the Europe we want : United, Independent and Voluntarist, because the World needs Europe's voice".

- "It's no more possible for Euro-Zone to continue without an Economic Government" at the Highest Level of Heads of State/Government, who provide "Democratic Legitimity" and can take important decisions, he announced, strongly supported by EU Parliament's Economic Committee which just voted to boost the "Institutional" aspects of "EuroGroup".

Plasticity offered by the current absence of a special Treaty on EuroZone's Institutions "made it easy to adapt the organization of the 1st Summit with imagination, to efficiently meet urgent needs", he observed, on the occasion of Brittish Prime Minister's exceptionnal presence at the greatest part of EuroGroup's Paris Summit.

- "In EuroZone we have the same Bank, the same Money, and, thus, a same duty for Unity" : "By bringing together EuroGroup's 15 members States we suceeded to find a solution and prepare a Giant Plan of 1.800 Billion euros", Sarkozy reminded of Paris' 1st Historic EuroZone's Summit.

Afterwards, Brussels' EU Council followed the move, and USA's Paulson II Plan was inspired from that. "Europe must promote the idea of Global Economy's Refoundation", he stressed.

dsc00390_400


- "I was frankly astonished when I found, at the EU, a rigid system, where any New Idea was seen from the outset as a sacrilege, while, on the contrary, Europe needs Innovation !", he described.

F.ex. ,"'When we first spoke about the "Union for the Mediterranean", it was misunderstood as something extraordinary.. When later we had the Russia -Georgia crisis, it seemed against EU's custom to act "in the middle of August", instead of staying a passive spectator ! And when, in front of the Financial ciris, we gathered the 1st EuroZone Summit of the "15", some thought of it as a lese-majesté", he denounced.
----------------------
On Geo-Political Principles :
----------------------
- But, by moving resolutely, "EU obtained the ...withdrawal of Occupation Troops in 2 Months !", reminded Sarkozy, observing that Russia "fulfilled its commitments", in the Georgian crisis, where a "disroportionate reaction" from Moscow followed a "totally inappropriate action" from Tbilisi's troops. "It would be crazy to reply by military means : EU should not become accomplice of another Cold War, imposed by lack of cool heads".. as he said.

In future, "the creation of a common European Economic Area with EU and Russia, would also obtain a raprochment on our Human Rights and Democratic Values", added Sarkozy, in a statement which should logically be applied, a fortiori, to controversial EU "candidate" Turkey..

Particularly when, the same week that EU Parliament voted 2009 EU Funds for Turkey's controversial EU bid, ECHR took a series of judgements condemning Turkey for grave Violations of Human Rights, such as : Torture, death of a political prisoner in unclear circumstances followed by failure to conduct a proper Investigation, "enforced Disappearance" of a youngster aged 17, Killing of a sepherd with Tank Shells, persecuting Journalists for articles on "Missing" People, even a former President of Human Rights' Association, (etc)

- "We (EU) can defend our ideas on respect of Sovereignity and territorial Integrity, on Human Rights and other differences ... without confrontation", Sarkozy stressed, on the occasion of Russian/Georgian conflict, reminding that : "we were only 2 steps from catastroph", when a Peace agreement brokered in Moscow prevented, at the last minute, Russian troops' advance towards Tbilisi.

An EU Parliament Resolution adopted Wednesday in Strasbourg on the occasion of Russia - Georgia conflict, outlines a set of Principle which apply elsewhere too, (particularly when EU Rapporteur for Russia and Turkey is one and same person ; Dutch MEP Ria Oomen-Ruijtanen !)

Clearly rejecting any "military solution to the conflicts", MEPs "condemn ..all those who resorted to force and violence". They denounce a "disproportionate military action", "as well as (an) unilateral decision to recognise the independence" of brekaway regions, "calling.. to respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity" of the concerned country, "and the inviolability of its borders recognised by all EU Member States". They warn that "EU must review its policy towards" a 3rd Country, "should .(it)...not comply with its commitments", and "stress that the withdrawal of.... troops from the areas ....is an essential additional step".

EU Parliament "calls for the safe and quick return of refugees, (accepted by Russian President Medvedev) accompanied by the deployment of EU observers on the ground", and "regrets ...that ..EU Monitoring Mission (EUMM) is not allowed to enter the ...breakaway regions". Moreover, "It's important to ensure that persons and NGOs ..engaged in defending human and civil rights can operate". "Until ...all remaining issues (are) resolved..., and notably the continuing ...Military presence", "relations with the EU ..cannot be fully normalised", MEPS warned.

As nobody likes to be accused to practice "Double Standards", this should be regarded as "Principles" applicable to any Third Country at EU's Neighborhood.. No ?

-------------------

On Economy :

-----------------------
- "When Financial crisis shook US and EU's Banks, without result from the 1st (American) Paulsen plan, it was the common reply of the 1st EuroZone's Summit, involving some 1800 Billion euros, which started a positive move in the markets, soon strengthened by the follow-up of the US Paulson 2 Plan, noted Sarkozy.

- "Europe should not be only on the defensive, but, if necessary, know also how to take an offensive", he said, brushing away hesitationsto act on Economy: - "I'm for a refondation of Capitaliism, but against Speculators, who betray its values" : "Lack of Rules was profitable to speculators, Not to businessmen !" We must make sure to prevent any such crisis in future". "We, the rest of the World, cannot continue to bear the deficits of the 1st World power without saying anything !", the French President said, applauded by EU Parliament. All this needs "a New Global Governance", on which EU Parliament must debate. That's why "we proposed together with USA, several Summits from mid-November", to which G-8, enlarged to China, India a.o. countries, should participate. UNO's SG; Ban Ki Moon, the IMF, etc.

Financial crisis lowered shares' prices even for healthy companies, sometimes to 1/3 of their initial price, so that strangers might buy EU industries for only a portion of their real value, and Europeans may wake up one day with their main industries sold out to foreigners !

That's one of the reasons for which EU should debate about creating "Golden Shares" for States to jointly take Strategic participations to help European Industries until the end of the Crisis, particularly against distording competition, he suggested, pointing at USA's 35 billion $ plan for American Car Industry."We shall struggle for Europe to be able to build Airplanes, Ships, Trains, Cars, because we need a strong Industry", he concluded.

"F.ex. as we did back in 2004, when as Finance Minister, we bought Alsthom's shares for 800.000 euros, and, after restructuring, we sold them for 2 Millions : Help a company and make money is not so bad"...

As for the UK, "when Ireland announced that it would guarantee only Irish Banks, London City emptied from liquidities in 24 hours : It's the EU which helped to restore the situation, Not the UK alone !", reminded Sarkozy to nationalist British MEP Nigel Farage.

On the contrary, in a last-minute attempt for the EU to catch-up with its Institutional delay "before the European Elections" of June 2009, MEPs simply voted a call for a "set of proposals" to be made for the "Irish public opinion" at the end of the year...

- "As long as Lisbon Treaty is not ratified by all 27 EU Member States, there is an unanimous decision to stop Enlargement, reminded Wednesday in Strasbourg the French Minister for EU affairs, Jean-Pierre Jouyet..

Added to an indirect but clear warning that, without Lisbon Treaty, all 27 EU Member Countries may not have a Commissioner in the 2009 resuffle, MEPS in the Constitutional/Foreign affairs Committees applauded hoping that this might motivate their Irish friends..

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 ?
