Commission budget proposal hardly makes EU enlargement possible
In recent years, the EU avoids the term "enlargement", having replaced it with "Western Balkans", thus excluding Turkey, a country which, according the Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, is taking giant steps away from the EU.
waitwut: Commission's budget proposal draws praise from MEPs
Juncker and Oettinger were met with a smattering of praise from different political groups. Several MEPs focused on the Commission's proposal to create a system of so-called own resources, which they described as a success for the Parliament after years of fighting for such a change to diversify the bloc's sources of revenue.

The own resources proposal could bring in €22 billion to the EU budget through measures including new taxes on plastics and carbon emissions, and a 3% common consolidated corporate tax base.



Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
