Despite a truckload of garlic being tipped in his general vicinity, he's back - after some 16 years. That it was part of his being a loyal father is perhaps to his credit, as it is at the behest of Martine Aubry that he is sounding off:
"Open your eyes: the Euro and Europe (1) are on the edge of a precipice"
(Be still my beating heart...)
"And in order not to fall off , the choice appears simple to me - either Member States accept the closer economic cooperation that I have always demanded, or they transfer more powers to the Union".
More at Le Parisien here. The original is behind a pay wall at two other websites.
Doubtless he is holed up in his equivalent of Colombey-les-Deux-Églises awaiting the call from a stricken EU for him to come to its aid.
(1) I think he means the European Union. The Russian Federation, Norway, Serbia etc all seem happy to sit this one out.
