Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"This isn't the Europe we signed up for. It's much larger, much poorer, and we have to take care of our own."

They say this after absorbing East Germany and then having the EU expand its haste into the German sphere of economic influence? What makes the EU much larger and poorer if not the Eastern European states that German capital wanted unfettered market access to while keeping the German labout market closed to their citizens?
