'Je suis préoccupé par la tournure des événements. L'Europe après un tel sommet va dans la mauvaise direction. On ne peut pas, comme ça, fuir nos responsabilités, opposer les Européens entre eux. J'ai parfois l'impression que la "solidarité" est devenue un gros mot. Et j'ai, hélas, la triste impression que l'expression en vogue, c'est "rabais" ou l' echec. Comme pour mieux illustrer une Europe, dévaluée, emportée par des égoïsmes nationaux.' 'I am worried by this turn of events. After such a summit, Europe is heading in the wrong direction. We cannot shirk our responsibilities and set Europeans against each other. I sometimes get the impression that 'solidarity' has become a rude word. And, regrettably, I have the impression that the 'in' word for the moment is 'rebate', as if to illustrate a Europe that is devalued and absorbed in national egoism.' Medium shot of Joseph Daul speaking from the debate. 00:28:00 Quote of Joseph Daul, Chairman of the EPP Group (Quote in French). 'Ce que nous voulons, Monsieur le Président, c'est un engagement ferme sur une clause de révision , dans deux trois ans, pour permettre au nouveau Parlement de revoir ce budget. Parce que nous n'accepterons jamais un budget d'austérité pendant sept ans. Ce n' est pas sérieux. Donc il faut au moins la clause de révision. Ce que nous demandons et comme vous l'avez dit, c'est l'introduction d'une réelle flexibilité. Entre les lignes budgétaires et entre les années. Il en va de l'efficacité du cadre financier. Ce que nous attendons, enfin, c'est la mise en place de ressources propres pour que le budget européen ne soit pas systématiquement jamais soumis à des chantages.' 'What we want, President Van Rompuy, is a firm commitment to a revision clause in two to three years to allow the new Parliament to revisit this budget. Because we will never accept a seven-year austerity budget. What we are asking for, President Van Rompuy, is the introduction of real flexibility. Between budget lines and between years. It is the efficiency of the financial framework at stake. What we expect, finally, is the implementation of own resources so that the EU budget will never again be subject to politicians' whims.' Medium shot of Joseph Daul speaking from the debate. 00:38:00 Cutaways of the MEPs from the debate. General shots of the audience. 4 shots. 00:27:00
