I am just back from New York City and I must tell you about this wonderful experience I had at the Hearst Media Dialogues.

On Wednesday I was a guest speaker in two separate talk-shows.
One in English (Face Off), the other in French (Face à face). On the same TV, France 24. Who is running Europe in time of crisis? It was a truly Babelian and Eurogeneration experience to express myself first in English and then in France with my colleague Alain Dauvergne from Notre Europe.

Open letter to the President of the European Commission. After Ireland
said “No” to the Lisbon Treaty with more than 53% of the poll, a
gesture, a move is much needed. Straight away. Dear President Barroso,
We believe in the principle of accountability. Political leaders must be responsible before people and resign when their work or their reputation have been stained.
