Today is a beautiful day. Today, we celebrate the signature of the first 2 founding treaties creating the European Union, signed in Rome on 25 March 1957: the Treaties of Rome.
Today, the European Union is 50 years old.
Many celebrations will be happening this Sunday all around Europe. And it's shamefully absent from the French presidential race debates... we are back to the question of "national identity (France), supported by Nicolas Sarkozy. Indeed he doesn't even speak English, why should he care about Europe ?
Only Bayrou seems to have a strong vision on Europe; Royal's stand is rather shallow.
The European integration is one the major political agendas for my generation on this continent. We have our challenges, but it's really worth trying really hard.
