guy verhofstadt

Guy Verhofstadt is een monument
in de Belgische politiek.

Hij maakte naam als gedreven partijvoorzitter en was bijna tien jaar lang eerste minister. Sindsdien vecht hij voor een sterke en verenigde Europese Unie.

Als eerste minister van Belgiรซ tussen 1999 en 2008 bracht Guy Verhofstadt zowel op ethisch als economisch vlak belangrijke hervormingen tot stand. Nadat hij in 2008 werd verkozen in het Europees Parlement, trok hij als groepsleider van de liberalen aan de kar voor een daadkrachtig Europa, dat voluit haar plaats opneemt in een wereld waar continenten de dienst uitmaken.

It's in the interests of both parties that there is a deal eventually. Most important now for the EU not to panic, not to give in on fair competition after #Brexit. Our companies need this, also on fish ๐ŸŸ

I also ask negotiator Michel Barnier and his team to unilaterally extend Eramus to UK students after Brexit. They love Europe, they all want the UK back into the European family.

Let's not make them the victims of a Brexit they didn't choose !

Banning veggie burgers ? Surely not.

I've always disliked government being patronising. It's one of the reasons why we founded the 'VLD โ€“ Partij van de Burger' all those years ago.

A burger's a burger, however you like it....

... and the Common Agricultural Policy holds plenty of more important measures to make sure both farmers and consumers get the most out of Europe's farming sector ! ๐ŸŒพ ๐Ÿ” ๐Ÿšœ

Look around you, and every day you see another crisis left unanswered. Internationally, there's Belarus, Turkey, Navalny, Hong Kong. And internally, we know our asylum and migration policies are insufficient and rule of law breaches remain unresolved.

EU inaction has become the rule, and it's easy to see why. Paul-Henri Spaak saw it coming in... 1942: unanimity leads to impotence and irrelevance. ("Combats Inachevรฉs: de l'Indรฉpendance ร  l'Alliance")

There's madness in our method. We need a Conference on the Future of Europe to revisit the rules, decide what our common interests are and how best to take care of them.

๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ Long before the Covid crisis, it was clear that Europe was not institutionally armed to respond to the new world order as it emerged from the confrontation between the United States and China. The chaotic management by the EU of this health crisis has only confirmed its structural unpreparedness to face a major shock, even if the Commission has done its best to support the disrepair of the Council. There is therefore a risk of being marginalised in the coming world and incapable of defending the collective interests of Europeans. It is no longer time to procrastinate when the future of Europe is at stake. The European Council must imperatively take a stand and convene this Conference, which has been announced many times. Our fellow citizens aspire for the debate to open and for solutions to be found so that Europe retains its rank in this century. #IAmEuropean ...
