Eurocrisis, in a nutshell


Since the beginning of the crisis (2008-2010), Europe is ruled by a centre-right coalition with an overwhelming majority in the European Parliament and the unanimity in the Council, meaning the 27-28 PMs of European member states. This coalition is based on the idea of “austerity” as way-out for the crisis (although with few internal discussions before finding an agreement). Negotiations with Greece progressed as long as Greeks voted in line with this centre-right majority, and shared this approach. During last elections, Greeks said that this policy was detrimental for them, and turned to the left breaking the unanimity in the EU Council. Clearly, this political difference is a problem for negotiations, and this has determined the current crisis.

We might dislike the situation, but this is line with the Europe we voted for. My positions were minoritarian, but I had my voice during last Italian and European elections. I don’t like these results and outcomes, but we’ve lost elections. I am just very annoyed by those asking for change, but voting for the status quo. That’s all.
