politjobs job alert EU 2017-02 – 2017 – a year of reform and change?
2017 starts just about where the last year left us; at least with a bit more entertainment in the Brussels party-political landscape as well as in the Brexit decision’s aftermath: the liberal coalition ALDE rejected an attempt of their leader and candidate for the European Parliament presidency, Guy Verhofstadt, to accept an alliance with Beppe Grillo’s Italian 5-Star movement, and the British ambassador to the EU resigned over Theresa May’s Brexit management.
The most entertaining part for the “EU Bubble” are the clear words accompanying these two events – in the otherwise overly diplomatic Brussels. Maybe the recent findings of a Brussels outsider are correct: Dutch crime reporter Gabrielle Ader has interviewed MEPs and other EU stakeholders. She concludes her amusing findings with the impression that, despite the current climate of shock and inaction, reform and change are in the focus. 2017 will certainly not become easier than 2016 – the terror attacks in Istanbul have been the first clear signs – but it should indeed bring us change and reform; a year where we go from shock, fear, sorrow and inaction to reform, change and adequate action. Even if we only manage first steps of reform, 2017 will be a better year than the last. With these words, we wish you a happy new year!
And if you want to be someone to make such change happen, you will find the latest jobs and as usual more on politjobs.eu.
