What's the point of keeping everybody on board if that means giving up any realistic prospect of having a genuine federalism.</p> <p>Thje problem with enhanced cooperations is not that it creates a two-speed Europe. The problem is that of a MULTI-speed Europe, or Europe à la carte, which totally lacks the simplicity and legibility required to make it understandable by the citizens. What we need is not a Europe of enhanced cooperations, but rather an EU of concentric circles, with a genuine European Federation at the centre.</p>
