As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

Is the EU "chaotic and leaderless" as some people state?
I must say: I have no idea. And that's where I see one of the bigger problems.
Ya know - I consider myself as politically interested and even I have often no idea, what these comissions and groups in the EU parliament really are doing the whole day long. Sometimes I see a result of what they do when they change some laws, or when there are some news about some guy hiring his brothers girlfriend as a secretary or so. But the rest? Hmph. Difficult.
I'm preparing the EU campaign right now and we have a hard time coming up with good ideas about what to do and how to visualize what in the next weeks. It's not that we don't get informations, they're just so boring!
So now the changes to the East are coming. Perhaps it's the case that the EU is not prepared for such a huge step. But is one ever? I prefer to see it as a chance. Maybe the EU will have to grow into the chance and is not yet big enough for it, but they'll never be in a better shape for such a step. If we'll continue to talk this step into a bad thing it will come out as such, but why not trying to see it a bit positive?
Let's face it: most member of the EU are pretty wealthy, compared to the rest of the world. And I'm a believer in the idea that when the rich ones give some of their wealth away to others who need it more, the new base to meet is a better one, because more people can live by that standard, and improve it to its old marks bu with way more people to profit from it.
