German Chancellor Angela Merkel says the EU needs a political union even if it means some countries integrating faster than others.
Speaking on German TV, she called for "more Europe", including a budgetary union, saying "we need a political union first and foremost".
"Step by step we must from now on give up more competences to Europe, and allow Europe more powers of control."
I'm so waiting for this whole EU **** to pass and all countries go back to what they were and are supposed to be: Their own damn country
With a political union, with shared common goals that attempts to leaves none behind, represented by democratically elected representatives from all states, selected best from the various political parties, for checks and balances, to discuss and debate over national issues for the best solution within a parliament or congress, and with an elected best democratic president empowered by the People to veto or takes full sole responsibility for an executive order to prevent political gridlocks.
it's not like Europe has a rich long history with democracy.
