President i EU-kommisjonen lød nærmest resignert i debatten i Europaparlamentet onsdag: Han innrømmet at Schengen befinner seg i koma, og sa euroens skjebne avhang av Schengen. Det lød ikke betryggende.

«We have to safeguard the spirit behind Schengen. Yes, the Schengen system is partly comatose. But those who believe in Europe, its values, its principles and its freedoms, must try to breath new life into the spirit behind Schengen.

«If the spirit leaves our hearts, we will lose more than Schengnen.

«A single currency does not exist if Schengen fails. It is not a neutral concept. It is not banal. It is one of the pillars of the construction of Europe.»
