EU Tweets of the Week: the Good, the Bad and the Smugly – 18 March 2016

Jennifer Baker presents EU Tweets of the Week, looking at the good, the bad and the ugly in the European Union Twittersphere this week:

  • Most debated: Divergent opinions, empty rhetorics and tugs-of-war between EU Member States seem to impede the full-on implementation of concrete solutions to tackle the migration crisis. Let us hope that the EU Summit will help smooth the situation.
  • The Good: After France, Italy is set to pass laws combatting food waste. Let that be an example to you, EU.
  • The Bad: ECR Leader, Syed Kamall, outed himself as pro-Brexit… What will the consequences be?
  • The Smugly: A rather odd press release headline from the EPP group sparked up a huge twitter controversy.
