European Leaders Pick Tusk and Mogherini

European leaders has agreed to appoint Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk for the EU Council presidency and Italian Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini as the union’s foreign affairs chief, EU Observer reports. A fascinating fact about Tusk is that he speaks neither French nor English, which makes me wonder how he will communicate in the corridors of Brussels. Sign language?

David Cameron Is Nervous over Referendum on Scottish Independence

“The Prime Minister’s comments come after the results of the first poll since a second televised debate showed the No campaign’s lead was cut in half, to just six points,” The Scotsman reports. One thing I find fascinating about British politics is that there are now two very distinct nationalist movements. One is the UKIP, who wants to quit Britains membership of the European Union, and the other is the Welsh and Scottish nationalists who want to leave the United Kingdom and stay in the EU. Personally, I like the idea of smaller European nations joint together by a federalist structure within the EU. As Europeans we both need to recognize each other’s differences and the need for us all to work together. Therefore I like the EU motto, “United in diversity”.
