Europe has come to far in its democratic, social and economic development for us to let national interests steer the handling of the current crisis and Europe's future development.
The Council has in recent years demonstrated its intolerable slowness and inability to handle, for Europe crucial issues. This includes everything from the financial crisis to foreign policy.
It's time that the Council hand over their power to the elected parliament.
The Council should be replaced by directly elected national representatives and thus become a second chamber to Parliament.
Europe belongs to all Europeans and we can't let Europe be a playground for national politicians.
