Prodi's Penelope Project - a reminder!

Research the proposals and consider the consequences now fully obvious in the coming week. A helpful link is here. The concluding quote:

On the one hand, they will be faced with Prodi's vision of the EU growing more bureaucratized, unaccountable, and detached from people's concerns. On the other hand, they will have an opportunity to undo, as Penelope did, the fabric of the European behemoth. As Penelope, who defended what was precious to her, the people of Europe will be able to re-assert their sovereign will and reject further European integration. In so doing, they may succeed in transforming the Union into what it might have been: a free trade area, where people enjoy the fruits of prosperity, while at the same time maintaining their right to determine their own destinies.
