"Mr President, the recent European elections delivered a stark message to these institutions: across Europe, people went to the ballot box not to commend the EU for work done, but to express disillusionment and to call for radical change in how Brussels operates. That genuine desire for a better Europe must not be ignored. In the United Kingdom – but not solely in the United Kingdom – the consensus is that Europe is not working. People see an EU that has lost its way, that is obsessed with ever closer union rather than what it was intended for: trade, cooperation and friendship. After the European Summit and the anointing of Mr Juncker, and after listening to the tone of this debate, I fear that the European establishment intends to answer the people with more of the same. More of the same economic and monetary union, which has brought record unemployment and a generation of young people condemned to long term unemployment and loss of hope. Colleagues, it is time for change. Sadly the tone of this debate suggests business as usual."@en1
