Upon reflection, the author makes comments and suggestions for the revision and renewal of the functioning of the European Union. He has travelled widely and in 1985 transferred from the UK (Country of birth) to live ad work in Italy. He still feels strong allegiance with the UK but notes a decline in its leadership and cultural heritage where Thatcherian thought and bottom-line profits carry the day. He has also written a collection of arguments in an essay called ‘Growing Pains of Globalization: Silent Witness to our Times’. www.hortcom.wordpress.com/europe-unification/
He is no expert of EU workings and administration, his writing comes simply from his individual experience of changing countries.
