“Europe: neither a state nor an empire” More than a state, more than an empire?
[IN FRENCH] Europe is not an empire. The leader of a country once locked behind the Iron Curtain has dared to compare it to the Soviet empire. It's wrong! The European Union does not lock up the people. Those who want to leave it can. If the United Kingdom is struggling so much to do so, it is not because Europe forbids it to do so, it is because this withdrawal has a terrible cost.
