Will we wake up in a new Europe tomorrow

Our fellow Scottish Europeans are voting in a referendum for independence from the UK today. What effects will this referendum have on the rest of Europe? Is separatism the right way or does it just mean more borders and red tape in Europe? Could the alternative to separatism be a federal Europe with federal member states? The questions are many tonight?

Good luck Mr. Tusk

The new president of the European council is "elected". Donald Tusk will take over from Herman Van Rompuy.
So what does this mean for the people of Europe?
Well, it would be impossible to be more invisible to the people then his predecessor.
But to really answer this question we must know about what powers does this office truely hold?
