Today Irish prime minister Leo Varadkar spoke at the European Parliament. He called for more “direct democracy” and warned, all European countries and all member states will be small states, even though perhaps they don’t realise it yet.

In my response to his speech I emphasized that in my opinion key words of his speech were – heart, soul and citizens.

We can progress only if European project is supported by European citizens. We can agree on many concrete projects, but first of all we need a uniting European narrative.
So I asked him what what could inspire and motivate European citizens for more Europe.

He also warned about consequences of brexit.

In my opinion I don’t believe in this expensive and hazardous exercise. British citizens decided on the first referendum without knowing consequences. They have right to know the consequences and to have a chance to decide on the second referendum when they are acquainted with them.
