*Brussels/EU Summit/Angelo Marcopolo/- The Shortest ever Summit in EU's History, was that of EU's 27 States, specificaly Dedicated to "BREXIT",  in Brussels Today !


Indeed, this EU27 Summit's official Start was scheduled from 12.30, and, given the usual preliminary Exchange of Views with EU Parliament President, practicaly, it could Not realy Start befode 13.00, at the Earliest.


But, already since 13.50, EU Council's Press Service was Publishing at its Internet Site for the World Wide Web, the full Official "Conclusions" of that Exceptional Summit ! (It arrived to Registered Journalists' EMails on 14.06, including at "Eurofora"s).


"Imperatoria Brevitas" : In his subsequent Press Conference, EU Council's President, Donald Tusk, revealed from the outset that, in Fact, this Summit's "Conclusions", (consisting in EU27's "Guidelines" for BREXIT's Negotiations), "were Adopted IMMEDIATELY after we Started the Summit"...


And the Final, general Press Conference of EU Institutions' Leaders, previously Scheduled for about "22.00" at the Evening, (an indicative Time Horizon, usually Extended in real Practice, for much Later, in most EU Summits, as all those who have a long Experience on them, know well), on the Contrary, took place ... Six (6) Hours Earlier, from 16 o'clock !

To the Memory of one among the Most Experienced EU Council's Press Officers, speaking to "Eurofora" Later-on, he had "Never" seen Before such a Short-lived EU Summit in History...

This seems to be at least one of the Main Reasons for which, Exceptionaly, a Number of EU Members' Heads of State/Government and other EU Leaders were Absent, this Time, from Brussels.

 

- It's True that EU Council's President, Donald Tusk, said in his Press Conference, that, on BREXIT Issues, "Speed is of Essence" : "Our British Friends repeatedly" said that "they were Ready to Agree ...Quickly", at least on the Issue of about "4,5 Millions of People: Europeans residing in the UK, and Britons living on the Continent". EU "Commission has Prepared a full List of Rights and Benefits that we (EU) would like to Guarantee for those Affected by the BREXIT". Now, "we Need a Serious British Response", and, "as Soon as the UK offers real Guarantees for our Citizens, we will Find a Solution Quickly", he concluded.

- However, Tusk also spoke about, "above all, Quality, as so Many People's lives Depend on it".  This naturaly includes also the "Quality "of Journalists' Reporting on all that, (particularly in English Language).


But, in Fact, all those poor European Journalists, who had, previously, to Travel throughout several EU Member States, either by Taking an Airplane, if not 6 or more Hours of Train, (sometimes even ...3 successive Trains, even by Paying a "TGV" "1st Class" Ticket), as well as to Find an Hotel in Brussels for, at least 2 Nights, (since that EU27 Summit's preparations were Starting practicaly since Early Morning, f.ex. the usual Political Groups' Meetings, etc, and its Normal End had been Scheduled for about "22.00" in the Evening : Comp. Supra), in Addition to spending sometimes an Hour to cross Brussels, (unless searching and paying always a Taxi, as he were Obliged to do), Walk amidst "Security" Blockades, search their Badge elsewhere, almost Risk their Lives by trying to Cross a Large Avenue always full of never stopping, Fast Running Cars, without any other way to cross, etc,


would Better have paid a One Way Ticket to Argentina's Patagonia, and Enjoy an EU Council Website Reading, at a Confortable Couch or even Bed, drinking a Coca - Cola, Breathing the Oxygen of Antractic Ocean's Fresh Air, (and, perhaps, by the way, even Closer to the current Pope Francis' original footpaths)...

 

After all, it seems that this  "BREXIT" thing, Risks really to turn  many aspects of Europe upside down !

In a last-minute, surprise move, New EU Chairman, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, anounced a proposal in Strasbourg to open an EU Parliament debate on Europe's Identity in the ranup to 2009 Election :

    - "I am conscious of the fact that there is, today, a real Crisis on Europe's
Identity", he replied earlier to a question by Greek MEP Ioanis Varvitsiotes, who had asked him to "advance beyond those who don't really want a Political Europe",

    - "Why not a real Debate on what is Europe's Identity ?", proposed
Sarkozy, in this regard.

    -  "EU Parliament could organize such Debates", he suggested :"It's
better for EU Parliament, than for National Governments, or EU Commission, to
define what is the European Identity", the French President proposed.

    A diplomatic way to avoid obstacles by some Governments and/or some Brussels' bureacrats, reportedly opposed to really free and popular, critical European debates on hot political issues..

    Sarkozy brillantly won the 2007 Presidential and Parliamentary Elections in France in 2007, in the line of the principles anounced at an important Speech in Strasbourg, February 2007, about a Political Europe, and a European Identity on issues which matter to the People.

   

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 ?
