Speciale Brexit, Pittella: "Cameron irresponsabile, referendum non era necessario"
"Il voto è stato deciso da David Cameron solo per rilegittimare la sua leadership all'interno dei conservatori. Ora pretendiamo la immediata notifica della decisione del popolo britannico: comincino subito i negoziati per l'uscita del Regno Unito. Il risultato del referendum è uno dei segnali di sfiducia dei cittadini nei confronti dell'Europa, dobbiamo superarla affrontando i problemi diretti dei cittadini, a partire dalla disoccupazione".

„Der Mittelweg ist gescheitert“
Überhaupt nicht. Die 90er Jahre waren geprägt vom Triumph des sogenannten DrittenWeges, der das Verdienst hat, die Linke mit dem Markt versöhnt zu haben. Das hat sich letztendlich jedoch als historischer Fehler erwiesen, weil die Globalisierung bedingungslos angenommen wurde, ohne zu erkennen, dass diese sowohl Gewinner als auch Verlierer schaffen würde. Zu viele Linke haben sich auf die Gewinner konzentriert, dabei aber die Verlierer – vor allem die unteren Bevölkerungsschichten und die Arbeiterklasse – vergessen, die de facto den Populisten überlassen wurden.
