Selfless leadership

One noteworthy reality about Europe’s current political leadership is summarised here by Phil Lawler:

 

“•  Macron, the newly elected French president, has no children.

•  German chancellor Angela  Merkel has no children.

•  British prime minister Theresa May has no children.

•  Italian prime minister Paolo Gentiloni has no children.

•  Holland’s Mark Rutte,

•  Sweden’s Stefan Löfven,

•  Luxembourg’s Xavier Bettel,

•  Scotland’s Nicola Sturgeon—all have no children.

•  Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, has no children.

 

“So a grossly disproportionate number of the people making decisions about Europe’s future have no direct personal stake in that future.”
