"As a former trade unionist I would like to say how happy we are that the Social Charter has been incorporated into the draft European Constitution, given that this was something that I fought for when I was a member of the European Trade Union Confederation executive. I think the fifteen countries should not worry that the ten new countries will prove a financial drain. The majority of accession countries know they will have to look after themselves, as the Czech Republic has done. If we take the Eastern part of Germany, into which billions of German marks have been poured, and compare it with the Czech Republic, we cannot see a great deal of difference."@en1
