WOW! This is exciting. Our boy has just hooked up with ROME!!!
Paris-Rome axis likely to become engine for integration after Angela Merkel bows out this year
Mario Draghi’s appointment as Italian prime minister with wide support from most, if not all, political parties has been hailed as good news for Italy and for the EU. It is also good news for President Emmanuel Macron.
It gives the French leader a partner in Rome who is a powerful and credible advocate of closer European integration just at the time when Germany prepares for a change in leadership. When Angela Merkel bows out as German chancellor, Draghi and Macron could become Europe’s new power couple.
From another article about the same story….
The Italian daily also evoked a “French connection” of Mr Draghi in Paris were the former boss of the European Central Bank (ECB) would have a “true galaxy of support”.
They named Alan Minc, an economist and close ally of President Macron, among those who would back such a new alliance of powers in the bloc.
This would be the perfect opportunity for the French President to take the leadership of the EU once Angela Merkel leaves the national and European political scene.
