Stop bullying Greece, your so called help has increased debt, reduced employment and quality of life as well as life.

That is not helping, that is torture.


This would not be a GREXIT it would be Greek Sanity and with that GRANITY if you want prissy little acronyms as that is all you do in the EU :(

+European Commission
Reading THIS Memo:
http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_MEMO-15-5275_de.htm

Everything you promised in the original press release is just empty words for the contrary to be true.

No roaming fees -> for a short period of time per year only.
So roaming fees after all.

Net neutrality -> But for selected services the speed will be prioritized and the data volume will not be counted against your data plan.
So no net neutrality after all.

I am incredibly disappointed.

Alex lives in Liège, Belgium and wants to go to Germany to buy household appliances and a new car.

Alex: "As a Belgian resident, are they allowed to charge me more? What about the VAT?"

Europe Direct "As an EU national, you cannot be charged a higher price than local residents when buying products or services anywhere in the EU, however, some price differences are justified sometimes..."

A message from First Vice-President Timmermans on today's attacks

Today there are again many innocent victims in France, Tunisia and Kuwait. Victims of terror, of unscrupulous killers who are sowing hatred, fear and division. They breed a heinous, totalitarian and nihilistic ideology. They look for power and domination. They will fail. Their ideology is as evil and inhuman as their methods. They will reap our determination to combat terrorists and shut them down, our unity in rejecting totalitarian ideologies, our strength in bringing together all people of good will, that stand for the rule of law, human rights and for a society where everyone has the right to shape his life in freedom.

Talk is cheap and that is all the EU has done so far; talk. Whilst the Kurds are spilling their blood is Syria fighting IS, we worry about the rights and wrongs of supporting them directly. Shame on the EU and the US for not doing more to rid us of these fanatics and pandering to the hypocritical 'mainstream' Islamic leaders.

"The European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) will help projects by providing guarantees to encourage private investments."  Them sure do sound like fancy words for a bribe, which is how it translates in many countries.

Over the past 15 years the European Research Area (ERA) and the Innovation Union have been the key drivers in Europe's research and innovation policy.

Building upon this we are charting a path to a new phase: 'Opening up to an ERA of Innovation'

Why don't you make a European Innovation Center to gather all the great innovators in the EU and make life better for all europeans? In Romania our scientists get very little money from the government, so they leave in countries like US or China.

Today, European Commission President, Jean-Claude Juncker​, together with the Presidents of the Euro Summit, Eurogroup, European Central Bank and European Parliament​; are setting out a common vision and a plan for strengthening Europe's Economic and Monetary Union.

"The world is watching us and they want to know where we are going", said Juncker.

+Paolo Scarabelli Well the crazy thing is that financial deals have risk and I feel the private companies accept it as anything else would be unfair.  The people accept risk in financial deals, so should they.

*This is the moment for Member States to show unity, solidarity and responsibility. *

Today, EU leaders are coming to Brussels for a European Council that must provide solutions where bold European action is needed.

At the #EUCO summit, we will work together on several fronts: #Greece
Migration: http://europa.eu/!wq39Um
Security Challenges: http://europa.eu/!MD98DB
Economic and Monetary Union: http://europa.eu/!GT68tC #DigitalSingleMarket: http://europa.eu/!Vg76fh

We have already prepared the ground. The question now is: are national leaders willing to go all the way along with us?

Invest in people in the border and better controls, it is TAX avoidance and economic sense.  Safe but sure and efficient.

Let the EU be self sufficient and with that, think of the numbers, China learned this, let us do better or forget it as currently the EU is building sandcastles, allowing bully's too kick them over then paying of the bully's.

The over-tollerance and with that inability to handle illegal people in the EU already who have been denied  to stay and yet allowed to abuse transportation ports and routes.  That is just showing how weak we are and to allow it is to say, we are useless, here have a sandcastle to kick over.

Work to empower Greece's income and to expand it, focus on helping Greece not helping to keep accountants happy as it is currently.  Think big, think smart but please think what is ideal, what is the safest and best path and be totally upfront in small short steps.

Introduction
The Commission's job is to represent and uphold the interests of the EU as a whole. It is headed by 28 Commissioners, 1 per country.

Mission
The Commission is independent of national governments. Its job is to represent and uphold the interests of the EU as a whole.

Description
The European Commission (EC) is the 'engine room' of the EU. It is one of 3 main EU institutions; the other two are the European Parliament (EP) and the Council (of the European Union).

The Commission prepares legislation for adoption by the Council (representing the member countries) and the Parliament (representing the citizens).

It administers the budget and the policy programmes (Agriculture, Fisheries, Research etc.) in cooperation with authorities in the member countries. The EC also services the 27 EU Commissioners.
