Would you allow this?

A Letter to my French compatriots.

It would be an insult to you to remind you of this. An election of Mrs Le Pen would mean that Vladimir Putin would no longer have to fear a strengthening of the economic sanctions against his war, since the most important European decisions are taken unanimously and she would oppose them.

Ukraine and the European rocket

It is the challenge of a double impossibility that Ukraine is presenting to the European Union. The first problem is that the Union cannot refuse to open its doors to this martyred country, because this would be to deny it solidarity and protection, when it will probably not be able to join the Atlantic Alliance and creating its own prosperity will be its best shield in the long term.

Let’s propose a shared future to the Russian people

Let us get ahead. Let us get far ahead, since this war may still last and take even more sinister turns, but let’s prepare ourselves, as of now, for the day when the weapons will fall silent, because two precedents oblige us to do so.

Foreword

Dear Readers,

welcome to this site.

It is not simply the webpage of the Member of the European Parliament, who I have become with great apprehension. Not of the journalist either, who I have been for half a century.

It is a wild ambition: I wanted to give a report on my work as an elected representative in Brussels and in Strasbourg, to continue to follow the evolution of world politics and to try to describe and decipher the stakes and the mysteries behind the scenes of the European institutions.

I wanted to create a multilingual site, to step across the borders that sometimes still separate us.

“Smithing makes the smith”, I hope you will bear with me.

Yours, 

Bernard Guetta
