Bye bye Britsih MEPs and members of the EcoFi committee, bye bye UK European Commissioner and technocrats, bye bye Mr Hill, finally it will be possible for us to look and go forward with all trans-European and Euroland social, economical and political issues left abandoned for decades because you were blocking them. A good day for Euroland.
