After the ‘seismic’ shock of ‘Brexit’ a re-appraisal is taking place in the EU concerning the future direction the remaining 27 member states could take. There are three possibilities: ‘more Europe’, ‘less Europe’ or ‘business as usual’. Donald Tusk, the president of the European Council, in a recent speech he argued that in order to prevent the second scenario, the EU must not attempt the first. This presentation argues that the feared break-up of the EU is more likely to be prevented if Europe’s political leaders were to ignore Tusk’s advice and provide a more constructive rival narrative of political integration.
