Former Executive Director of the European Casino Association and current Managing Director of Time & Place Consulting, Glenn Cezanne provides the latest info on what’s trending and what’s coming down the pipeline in Brussels and around the EU.


T Glenn Cezanne 30 MAY 2019


he European elections are looming, and European Parliament candidates are grooming the electorate. The rise of the far-right is a major concern. Why? I believe it is a reactionary mood to a


difficult status quo with increasingly bigger gaps between the wealthy and poor, where the effects of the financial crisis are still being felt, and the migration crisis has everyone panicking for some reason. I just wonder whether people are even aware that the real migration crisis has not yet even knocked on the EU’s doors. Think water shortage. So, this cocktail mixed with disinformation, fake


news and decades of failure of the EU, most notably the European Commission, to have a proper PR campaign to bring some sort of positive understanding of what the EU does has brought us to where we are now and where we will


probably be in the future. Mind you, the European Parliament and member states are to blame as well. But, please keep this between us. I am still a Brussels-based lobbyist. Wink wink. Well, really, what I am more concerned about is the future of Europe and the typical “it will be alright” attitude that got us to Brexit and unfortunately, in some countries, political leaders with no interest in a just society and a fair and progressive social contract. End of rant; time for some fun regarding the elections. Yes, there are loads of things I could tell you about, such as how the elections work, what they mean in the long-run, what key themes are at the moment and who stands to win. Wikipedia can do that for you. Trust me, you don’t even need a consultant for that. I hope my staff is not reading this. Instead, let us have a look at some of the


“quirkier” parts of the election procedures and the stories behind.


What in the UK is going on?


So, now as things have been postponed to Halloween in terms of Brexit, I humbly point to what I said in the previous edition of EU Bytes. It will be interesting to see how the EU elections pan out in the UK. There is still hard-core Eurosceptic Nigel Farage looking to benefit from a European wage as (re-elected) Member of the European Parliament to put forward the point that there shouldn’t be a wage; although, I don’t remember him actually complaining about that aspect specifically.
