Brexit'chaos in Britain will save the EU by deterring other countries from leaving the bloc senior MEP Guy Verhofstadt taunted today
Scientists reckon they have discovered what could be the world's very first abstract drawing on a small fragment of rock in South Africa.
Increased financial means: To ensure the Agency can carry out its increased tasks, the Commission proposes a budget of €321 million for the period 2019-2020 and €1.25 billion for the period 2021-2027. This included finding solidarity in the face of a core member leaving the Union, in the case of Brexit, but also the hard terrain of disciplining member states who appeared to be running counter to European values, as in the case of Poland and, most recently, Hungary.
Juncker said Wednesday that "we have to do more so that our single currency can fully play its role on the global stage".
This will bring important benefits to European Union citizens. It's a simple, safe and easy way for you to become part of a community that will secure and guide our future.
In March, the European Union issued new guidelines ordering faster content removal with the explicit threat of introducing legislation if actions weren't taken fast enough. As the world's third-largest emitter, Europe is under global pressure to hike its targets for 2030 and 2050, to match the Paris deal's stretch goal of holding the temperature rise to 1.5C.

Landslide on Greek island beach injures three
British woman Wendy Thorpe said she was on a boat with her daughter when the cliff collapsed and there was an "almighty crash". Video footage of the incident shows people running in panic as a large sheet of rock fell off the rock wall.
What did Juncker say, and what did he emphasise?
Populist, nationalist and eurosceptic forces have gained ground in many countries, and the European parliamentary elections in May could well bring in more of Juncker's opponents to rock the boat just as he tries to consolidate what he sees as real successes in restoring forward momentum to the European project.
The Belgian MEP called on "all pro-Europeans to be united against alt-right and authoritarian tendencies" and said he wants measures to be tabled by the Commission to protect European elections from foreign meddling.
Juncker's legislative proposals will face scrutiny in Parliament and from member states, with some of the latter wary of a plan to scrap their veto over some areas of foreign policy in an effort to give the European Union a nimbler actor in global diplomacy.
