26/06/2024 | 11:08:37 President and colleagues, We have now heard that sanctions are the panacea, and that they will resolve the situation. Let me tell you that they are not. Mr Paul GAVAN has just said that he wants more sanctions. We have heard it - more sanctions. We will hear it in many speeches - more sanctions. Germany wants more, and Belgium. Other countries will probably also be pilloried later. Are you really convinced that the sanctions against Russia will achieve anything? Are you really convinced? Are... 25/06/2024 | 11:27:52 Dear Mister chairman, Ladies and gentlemen, Yes, it is true that politics must take on board the views, expectations and concerns of young people if democracy is to function well. Young people bring dynamism and new ideas to politics. And yes, young people are sometimes less represented in national parliaments than middle-aged people. That young people are generally less involved in traditional politics than others is unfortunately no secret. However, I think that legal obstacles, prejudices... 24/01/2024 | 16:28:29 I can understand a lot of what is written here, what we are discussing here, what we have heard.

I have been doing this all my life. It is part of my professional path. Yesterday and today I had phone conversations with athletes. One of them told me in no uncertain terms: as a gold medalist at the Olympics, I want to win against the best, against the best in the world. I want to be the best of all in the world. The best of all, in fact the best of all honest athletes in... 12/04/2019 | 12:40:46 Dear colleagues, €59 million in 2019 – never before has so much funding been allocated to action in sport under Erasmus Plus. What a commitment from the taxpayers of the 34 countries in the programme. That leads me to another very important commitment of dozens of countries: the Council of Europe’s Convention on the Manipulation of Sports Competitions, which is known as the Macolin Convention. It has been ratified by four States and signed by 31 other States. On 1 February 2019, it was even...
