Yesterday, by far my most popular blog was entitled European Commission (EU_Commission) on Twitter – Where’s the strategy guys?.
So I thought that I would take another look this morning and see what the European Commission were discussing on Twitter. Take a look for yourselves by opening the following link:

Personally, with record unemployment in Europe, absence of cohesive foreign, economic, defense and energy policies, I was amazed to see that the mighty European Commission was giving top priority to a smartphone app for road traffic updates. Surely, some joker is taking the “**ss”?
Do the unemployed, especially the millennials in Southern European, countries like Cyprus, really want to know about smartphone apps? Surely, Southern Europe’s millennials, who have probably been denied work and social normality are more interested in reversing the EC’s erroneous policies of excessive austerity? What about investment in Cyprus energy sector, for example?
I realize that the European Commission is urgently awaiting a new leader on Friday, following the vote that David Cameron has forced.
This brings me to an open question:
Is the European Commission pumping dys-information to deliberately deflect away from it’s absence of leadership, focus, strategy, as well as inefficiency and ineffectiveness?
