MUCH was being made of the importance of the European Commission President’s annual ‘State of the Union’ address to MEPs on September 28th to the future of the EU. All the kerfuffle ignores the fact that, with every passing week, EU leaders find themselves at least once in “now or never” or “crunch time” meeting, yet none of the so-called crisis summits has produced a solution to...
