EU struggles to find financial stability /// “If the balance tips in favour of national positions, that could kill the EU.”


It’s has been revealed that EU member states are in conflict with which course of action to take in regards to the EU economy. This comes as the bloc can’t decide whether to take action as individual nations or as a collective, this indecision is actively driving the bloc apart.

This week there have been many comments made from concerned prominent pro-EU supporters.

A director of Carnegie Europe, a Brussels think tank warned “Something like a pandemic can only be addressed in a meaningful way through international cooperation. “If the balance tips in favour of national positions, that could kill the EU.”

Jacques Delors 8th President of the EU Commission and former French Minister said: “The climate [of tensions] between heads of state and government and the lack of European solidarity pose a mortal danger to the European Union.”

Nathalie Tocci, director of the International Affairs Institute in Italy said: coronavirus “could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back”.
Mrs Tocci added: “The reason why coronavirus is such an epochal challenge is not that it brought things out of the blue.
“It touches on all spheres and does so by accentuating dynamics that are already there. It’s as if it is bringing the extreme out of everything.”

With the way things are going, it’s becoming tough to see how this can now end without massive casualties in the EU.
