Two peas in a pod

Today we have reached a milestone through a historic vote by the European Parliament. It will pave the way for creating a real economic union to complement the monetary union. I would like to thank the Parliament and the rapporteurs, who have done a remarkable job.

The adopted package represents a fundamental change to the way the Economic and Monetary Union is governed. It will ensure fiscal discipline and facilitate economic stability, which is crucial for sustainable growth and job creation. We will now have in place the most substantial and important institutional reform ever in the field of economic policy-making at the EU-level. I am looking forward to using this new toolbox. The "six-pack" is an essential basis for future reforms, as outlined by President Barroso in his State of the Union speech today.

Peace for our time, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Neville Chamberlain 30.9.1938

My good friends, this is the second time in our history that there has come back from Germany to Downing Street peace with honour. I believe it is peace for our time. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. And now I recommend you to go home and sleep quietly in your beds.

 The settlement of the Czechoslovakian problem, which has now been achieved is, in my view, only the prelude to a larger settlement in which all Europe may find peace. This morning I had another talk with the German Chancellor, Herr Hitler, and here is the paper which bears his name upon it as well as mine. Some of you, perhaps, have already heard what it contains but I would just like to read it to you: ' ... We regard the agreement signed last night and the Anglo-German Naval Agreement as symbolic of the desire of our two peoples never to go to war with one another again.

Stability for our time, EU Commissioner for Economic and Monetary Affairs Olli Rehn 28.9.2011
