*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/
- Mainstream, Long-Time MEP Paul Ruebig of Austria, from the Governing Party of ChristianDemocrats/EPP, speaking to "Eurofora", confirmed that his Famous role as "EU Parliament's Mr Roaming" man, hasnt' ended yet, since a lot remains still to do, in order to really ensure for EU Citizens a Fair Price on Mobile Phone Calls between EU Countries, especialy when they are Travelling abroad.


- Indeed, despite EU Commission's notorious promisse to Eliminate any supplementary Costs for "Roaming" from June Next Year (6.2017), nevertheless, still a Lot remains to do, for that "Mr. Roaming" MEP, in order to ensure that all Extra Costs would have Disappeared for EU Citizens while Travelling accross the EU.

F.ex., meanwhile, Ruebig has Tabled a Written Question, Together with former EU Commissioner Viviane  Reding, and Many other MEPs from various Countries, about a Risk for Mobile Phone calls made from the Country of origin, towards any Other EU Member Country, to remain almost as Costly as before, even after mid-2017, even if, paradoxicaly, at the same Time, Calls made from any Other EU Country, (f.ex. whenever one Travels abroad), woud stay at a Normal Price.

+ In Addition, even when all Roaming Extra Costs would have, Hopefuly, Disappeared, somewhere around Mid 2017, nevertheless, it will still remain to undo also those which persist to over-Tax Mobile Phones' use vis a vis the Rest of the World...

MEP Paul Ruebig has already expressed his Intention to Take Over also that 2nd Issue, as a Natural Extension of his initial Anti-Roaming Mission : - "After all, Internet is Global !".

Thus, EU's "Mr. Roaming", would, sooner or later, become also a  ..."Global Mr. Roaming" ! After all, at least a great part of UNO's European Headquarers are located in Austria's Capital Wien, aren't they ?

However, according to some well informed sources, it's not yet obvious whethe we shall witness, at last, the Full End of Any Roaming, be it inside the EU area, or even Globaly, before Retiring...

(Opinion).

 In Democracy, the forthcoming choices for EU's Top Jobs, as the New EU Parliament's President, new EU Commission's President (+ probably EU Council's President, EU Foreign Minister, etc) should be made according to EU Citizens' Votes in June 7, 2009 European Elections, and main EU Governments' strategic policies.

At the heart of the biggest EU Countries, in France and Germany, EU Citizens clearly voted for a renovated, non-technocratic but Political Europe based on Values, declared explicitly incompatible with Turkey's controversial EU bid.

This main choice was also supported in several other small or medium EU Countries, such as Austria (cf. promise of a Referendum), Spain (cf. EPP program's reservations vis a vis Enlargment), etc., while EPP Parties won also in Poland, Hungary, Cyprus, etc.

In other Countries, whenever Governing coalitions didn't make these choices or eluded them, continuing to let a Turkish lobby push for its entry into the EU, they paid a high price, and risked to damage Europe, by obliging EU Citizens to massively vote for euro-Sceptics whenever they were the only ones to offer a possibility to promise  real change and oppose Turkey's demand to enter into the EU :

It's for this obvious reason that British UKIP (IndDem) succeeded now (after many statements against Turkey's EU bid) to become Great Britain's 2nd Party, unexpectedly growing bigger even than the Governing Labour Party, as well as the Liberal party  ! Facts prove that it's not an isolated phenomenon : A similar development occured in the Netherlands, where Geert Wilders "Party for Freedom" (PVV) became also the 2nd biggest in the country, (after EPP), boosting the chances of a politician who had withdrawn in 2004 from an older party "because he didn't agree with their position on Turkey". And in several other EU Member Countries, even previously small parties which now focused on a struggle against Turkey's controversial demand to enter in the EU, won much more or even doubled the number of their MEPs (fex. Bulgaria, Hungary, Greece, etc).

On the contrary, whenever Socialist and oher parties were explicitly or implicitly for Turkey's controversial EU bid, they obviously lost Citizens' votes and fell down to an unprecedented low.

In consequence, EU Citizens clearly revealed their main political choices, in one way or another : They voted to change for less Bureaucracy, but more Politics and Values in a Europe really open to EU Citizens, but without Turkey's controversial EU bid.

Recent political developments are obviously different from the old political landscape which existed in the Past of 1999-2004, when Socialists based on Turkish 1% vote governed undisputed not only in Germany, but also in the UK, Greece and elsewhere, France followed old policies decided when it had been divided by "cohabitation", before the 3 "NO" to EU  Referenda since May 2005, before Merkel, before Sarkozy, etc.... before the surprises of 7 June 2009 new EU Elections.

If the current candidates to the Top EU jobs promise and guarantee to respect People's democratic choices, OK.

Otherwise, Europe must find new candidates, really motivated and able to implement these democratic choices of the People.

The beginning of crucial, final Decisions are scheduled for the 1st EU Parliament's plenary session in Strasbourg, in the middle of July, and they could be completed towards the October session, when Lisbon Treaty's fate will have been fixed.
