A rather special Agora this week; two leading European politicians, from the Greens and Centre- Right. Daniel Cohn Bendit, a veteran from the stormy days of May 1968, and Alain Lamassoure, a former French minister, co-author of the original EU constitution, and President Sarkozy’s Brussels scout ahead of the French presidency. They discuss what price EU democracy now that Ireland has rejected the Lisbon treaty. Two men diametrically opposed politically, but united in their desire for a meaningful Europe.
