Former Irish Prime Minister says EU lacks politicians willing to repeat the truth

What is lacking in European politics at the present time is politicians who are willing to repeat the truth often enough, said Former Irish Prime Minister John Bruton, addressing the Limassol Economic Forum. As he said, the best antidote to populism is the truth.

He said politicians must become more assertive in telling people that “we have all substantial benefits from the existence of the European Union, from been in the European Union, from the trade agreements that European Union has negotiated with the rest of the world and from the growth of globalization”.
