It doesn't matter how great your job is if you don't want it. If you are too stressed, then you should quit. It is your life. Why care about the opinions of others? Go to work tomorrow morning and say "goodbye."

In its present form, the EU is weak, particularly because it lacks the necessary competence in foreign policy and because its bloated bureaucracy causes it to stand in its own way. What is needed, therefore, is a reform of the EU as soon as possible.
