What is going on Europe today resembles the great crises of history, occurring every 50-60 years. Anyone who has read history can hear the roar of the tectonic changes to come, was the cornerstone of her speech.
There is a crisis in the north with the upcoming referendum in Great Britain, one crisis in the East with Ukraine, a crisis in the South with the upcoming Spanish elections along with the economic problems in Greece and Italy and the evolving refugee crisis.
We are at a crossroads. EU needs a vision, a plan and Leadership.
