Iโ€™m in #Prague for tomorrowโ€™s 1st summit of the new #EuropeanPoliticalCommunity.

The 27 ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ leaders will be joined by #Truss, #Erdogan, #Zelensky & others.

The big question: what the hell is this thing? The answer depends on what happens tomorrow in a battle between ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง&๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท. ๐Ÿงต1/9 Image
The idea is that this is a wider European bloc which will include countries not in the EU, either because theyโ€™re waiting to join, they donโ€™t want to join, or theyโ€™ve left (๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง).

But there are already such groupings, like the Council of Europe in Strasbourg and the OECD in Paris. Image
Whatโ€™s the point of the EPC then?

The idea is that, unlike CoE & OECD, this will be a forum for heads of state and government to meet and discuss major issues.

Such leader meetings donโ€™t happen in those other organisations. Image

BREAK - Liz Truss *will* be attending the 1st summit of the #EuropeanPoliticalCommunity in Prague next week.

In fact, ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง now fully on board to JOIN this European community and wants to host the 2nd meeting (!?!)

An astonishing u-turn.
A refresher: #EuropeanPoliticalCommunity is ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ทPresident @EmmanuelMacron's idea for a forum larger than ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ where European issues can be discussed. An 'outer ring'

Many suspect it's meant as a halfway house to park aspiring members. And a former member.โ€ฆ

The first: what the hell is the EPC? And how would it be different from the Council of Europe in Strasbourg? Nobody yet knows.
