*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 !

Sarkozy stimulated by Irish "No" challenge : - "It's a call to change and build Europe otherwise. Not later, but now. It won't be easy, but it's fascinating !"

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

* Paris, Elysee, June 14, 2008.

Forthcoming EU Chairman, French President Nikolas Sarkozy, created a surprise by declaring that the challenge of the Irish "No" to the EU Treaty, stimulates his belief that we must immediately change the way Europe is built.

A difficult but fascinating task, that he intends to accomplish in the next 6 Months, during which he will analyse developments 3 times to EU Parliament in Strasbourg, on July, October and December 2008.

But Agenda obliged to give a first reply to Questions raised by the Irish Referendum, on the sidelines of a Press Conference with USA President GWBush, in Paris' Elysee palace, Saturday :

Sarkozy's reply was twofold :

First, the Franco-German position is that EU must make sure "that the Irish Incident does not become a Crisis". Ratification must continue, after 18 EU Member States, also to the rest, as UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown promised.

But, pointing at deeper causes, Sarkozy also criticized bureaucratic "sabotage" of Europe's "founding fathers" original dream. The move reminded his Historic February and July 2007 speaches in Strasbourg on Europe's future, joining criticism to a call for EU's Renaissance, which now became urgent :
