Comment Neelie (Kroes)
Making speeches talk
[...] A country where a man who did not speak English 20 years ago, Matthias Cormann, can leave Belgium today be the Finance Minister in Australia. A country where Tanya Plibersek’s parents can escape the shadow of the Iron Curtain and raise her in peace and sunshine on the way to the top of her party. That they can reach these places in their early 40s only adds to the compliment.
