Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Oh, I see Dieselbum said it first.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
Won't be nothing
Nothing you can measure anymore

I read that Sweden and The Netherlands at first blocked Georgieva as the votes were insufficient to get her elected and due to her age. Apparently the UK was taken by surprise as their two late candidates were rejected ... the UK abstained. Dijsselbloem saved the Union 😉 by stepping back as candidate. Georgieva wins by default ... the EU is clearly divided. Mark Rutte and the Dutch are out if favor ... firstly with Timmermans and now for the IMF position.

Global Warming - distance between America and Europe is steadily increasing.
