Tim Sebastian asks European Commission Vice President Margaritis Schinas if the EU’s latest initiatives are enough to silence the criticism. Join the discussion and let us know what you think. Is this a success story waiting to be told as Schinas claims or is the European Commission’s incompetence costing lives? Tell us what you think below.
