Making speeches talk

Comment Neelie
[...] When I first become a Minister in the Dutch government, Europe was a different world, and I don’t mean that in a positive sense. Half the Continent lived under Communism or military rule. Our single market was a nice idea, but not a reality. When I left the government 10 years later, things were better but not by much. The EU had grown only to 12 member states.
