Brexiti positiivne mõju tervele Euroopale

Germany’s Schaeuble says Brexit a ‘wake-up call’ for Europe

Signalling a looming clash with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and other EU integration advocates, Germany’s finance minister said national governments should set the pace for future cooperation with the European Union – even if this means sidestepping the Commission in Brussels.

In an interview with the newspaper Welt am Sonntag on July 3, Wolfgang Schaeuble outlined the emerging response by German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government to the UK referendum on June 23 to leave the EU.

As reported by Bloomberg, Schaeuble said EU countries must seek to reach agreements even if not all of the 27 non-UK members want to participate and should circumvent the commission, the EU’s executive arm, if it isn’t willing to cooperate.

“Now is the time for pragmatism,” Schaeuble was quoted as saying. “If not all 27 want to pull together from the beginning, then we’ll just start with a few. If the Commission isn’t along, then we’ll take matters into our own hands and solve problems between governments.”

The Agence France-Presse (AFP) also noted that Schaeuble warned that the EU must make speedy progress on the refugee crisis, youth unemployment and other problems. “This is not a time for grand visions,” said the 73-year-old veteran minister, long a passionate proponent of the European project, who said he was stunned by the British vote to leave….

Me näeme UK referendumi positiivset mõju. Kui sind huvitab, et kuidas see demokraatia töötab, siis nii töötabki. Valijal on vaja anda hinnang poliitikute tegevusele. Kui Brexitit poleks olnud, siis Schaeuble vaevalt praegu valitsusi üles kutsuks midagi ette võtma eurokriisi asjus. Nii kiire on sellega, et isegi Komisjonist(EL-st kui institutsioonist) on ta valmis mööda minema. Ühtäkki on noorte tööpuudus ja pagulaskriis probleem Euroopas? Enne oli neil aega küllalt ja liikmesriigid olid ise süüdi, et üle enda võimete elasid. Samas viitab see sellele, et Euroopas on asi väga tõsine. Sellega Schaeuble valideerib EL-i nurjumise kriisi lahendamise osas. Brexit just keeps on giving.    🙂
