Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm afraid the world has moved on and most of the old alumni are out there in the real world doing demanding day jobs which prevent them even visiting here, never mind contributing much to our debates.

Where he have failed is in failing to pass on the torch to a new generation who could move the site forward with new ideas and a new energy.

Most of my younger acquaintances and friends are too busy for this stuff just getting on  with their lives, They have become disillusioned with Politics in general and with the EU in particular.

There is nothing to drive them here. No overarching vision or ambition.  In the meantime all we can try to do is keep the torch flickering in the hope that someone else will pick it up before it dies.

He shall not snap off the broken reed
nor the flickering candle snuff out..."
