Great job with the interview. This woman has hit the nail the head. The tribes could kill the EU project.
The money for the COVID crisis is to help and
not to completely solve the problem.
I’m in favour of a control to see the
money is used correctly. I would insist more that reforms don’t necessarily mean “cuts”. Meaning that resources should be used properly. Something politicians too often don’t know how
Thank you for the great job you guys do.
