"Outside a pub in Clerkenwell, England."Mission accomplished
The President of the Council, Donald Tusk, wrote an extraordinary letter to his fellow leaders this week warning them of the threats the continent now faced. An assertive China. Russian aggression. Radical Islam. So far, nothing too surprising. But then the bombshell, as he listed "worrying declarations by the American administration".
You folks still really want fascism...
but very important - America first!
What's wrong with that picture?
Montenegro is reportedly preparing to indict the Russian intelligence officer it accuses of masterminding a bloody coup plot to stop the Balkan nation joining Nato.Eduard Sismakov, an officer with Russia's GRU military intelligence service, is accused of running a web of Serbian and Russian nationalists and paramilitaries who plotted to assassinate the Montenegrin prime minister.The British government believes the thwarted plot was carried out with the backing of Moscow and UK and US intelligence agencies have been helping the tiny Balkan nation unravel the conspiracy.
German builder Hochtief (HOTG.DE) is keen for more work in the United States, including any possible contract to build a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico, Chief Executive Marcelino Fernandez Verdes said.Fernandez Verdes was speaking after Hochtief, which is majority-owned by Spanish construction group ACS (ACS.MC), published 2016 financial results.
Montenegro 'to indict Russian spy behind coup plot'
EU re-elects Tusk, Poland isolatedTwenty seven member states voted in favour of Tusk, leaving Polish prime minister Beata Szydlo alone in opposition to her fellow countryman, a political opponent of her conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party.Arriving at the summit, Szydlo had insisted that "a person who has no support in his home country cannot become president of the European Council".In the end, it took EU states just half an hour to overrule her.Szydlo even lost the support of Poland's usual EU allies, Visegrad group partners Hungary, Slovakia, and Czech Republic.
People don't elect representatives of the people to the EU parliament. Instead, local parties in the member states send some odd individuals away to the EU parliament because it's a way to get rid of them for some time.
Twenty-seven out of twenty-eight member states did vote for Tusk. So far so good.The only question arising is whom does Tusk represent at the EU? I mean which of the other twenty-seven member states since it hardly can be Poland.
