Last quote by James Franey

It would still leave him, however, short of a parliamentary majority and he is likely to need the support of a fourth party as well. Talks could go on for weeks, maybe even for months. On average, it takes about 74 days to form a coalition here. The process of forming the next Dutch government is only just beginning.feedback

Dec 10 2014

With little progress made on returning failed asylum seekers to Africa, the EU is still struggling for a coherent strategy to this migration crisis. Indeed as the bloc seeks help from African nations as well as Turkey, it seems the only strategy that Europe has, is to make it somebody elses' problem.feedback

Dec 03 2014 - Al-Qaeda

There are a number of key questions still to be asked of the US-led strategy against ISIL. What future for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad? Where does it leave the other opposition forces fighting against him? And can military force really destroy a jihadist ideology? It's the strategy that the US and its allies have been using in the fight against al Qaeda for well over a decade.feedback

Sep 19 2014 - Scottish independence

The yes campaign may have failed this time, but with so many Scots voting to split from the United Kingdom the Westminster elites can no longer ignore their voices. That's why the three main parties will be setting out more proposals to grant Scotland greater autonomy over the coming months.feedback

Sep 05 2014 - Russia

Jul 23 2014

Well to answer your question, really the people of Eindhoven have been trying to get back to normality already. As I said there have been those services in churches, in schools and offices across the country and that's the way the Dutch people are trying to deal with this terrible tragedy.feedback

Jul 23 2014 - Malaysia

We were walking around Eindhoven this morning speaking to locals and to sum up the mood it really was a mix of grief, anger and disbelief. A lot of people were asking themselves how this could happen to Dutch citizens? Many of them had just broken up from school, from university, were taking their annual vacation on their way to Malaysia and further afield. Really a lot of anger not just on the streets of Eindhoven but across the Netherlands. You will have seen the massive floral tributes at Schiphol airport in Amsterdam that have been amassed over the past few days.feedback

Jun 11 2014 - Starbucks

If the Commission finds that these three member states have indeed broken the rules, the companies involved could be asked to pay back any 'lost' revenues.feedback

May 28 2014 - European Parliament

German Chancellor Angela Merkel was less than enthusiastic when she was asked to endorse the former PM of Luxembourg to take over at the EU executive. If leaders and the European Parliament can't strike a compromise deal over the next few weeks, it could spell the start of a bitter row here in Brussels…at a time when voters are urging governments to do more to fix the economy.feedback

May 07 2014

Nigel Farage, thank you very much for being here on euronews. First of all, what kind of party is UKIP and who do they appeal to?feedback

Apr 22 2014 - Manchester United

Supporters of David Moyes said he needed time to turn it around. But English football is a very different sport from all those years ago. Money and commercial success mean everything. The club's failure to qualify for next season's Champion League will cost it some 50 million euros.feedback

Mar 26 2014 - Ukraine Crisis

It is interesting that Ukraine is going to be a key foreign policy issue for Obama over the coming months. Could we say that this rebalancing, or pivot, to Asia…whatever you want to call it…is going to have to be radically reviewed – that in fact Europe's borders are again going to be the centre of American foreign policy, going forward?feedback

Mar 25 2014 - Nuclear weapons

First, it is not legally binding, relying on the goodwill of all the nations involved. And another key question is just how far-reaching the deal is when Russia, the country with the largest stockpile of nuclear weapons in the world, has refused to sign up.feedback

Mar 25 2014 - Crimea

In 2009 it was the US President who said he wanted a reset in relations with Russia. Now the very same man has led calls here to suspend Russia from the G8. A new Cold War? Well maybe not. But amid all the US talk of pivots to Asia, it is clear that Europe's borders have once again become the epicentre of global geopolitics.feedback

Feb 20 2014 - Sanctions

It seems like such a long time ago that protesters were descending onto Maidan square in Kiev waving EU flags, but since then the bloc has struggled to remain relevant and able to influence events in its own backyard. And even if EU foreign ministers decide that sanctions are the next step to solve this crisis, for most of the demonstrators it will be too little too late.feedback

Sep 05 2013 - Christian Democratic Union of Germany

However German Chancellor Angela Merkel has staked a lot of political capital on getting a deal on shadow banking – what's that? Basically financial institutions that lend in the same way that banks do, but operate outside the traditional banking regulations. So, the argument goes that we need to tighten up regulations on the shadow banks to avoid a repeat of the easy credit crisis of 2007/8. Now what we're hearing from EU officials is that there's likely to be little in the way of an agreement on that, all pointing towards a defeat for German Chancellor Angela Merkel.feedback

Sep 05 2013 - OECD

Well, officials have already admitted on the sidelines of this summit that there will be an agreement on tax evasion and tax avoidance. It will endorse an early accord struck by G20 Finance Ministers in Moscow in July. The idea is two things really – an automatic exchange of information, which one OECD official described as the end of banking secrecy – and then having the OECD provides oversight so that companies can't shift profits around.feedback

Sep 05 2013 - G20

It's going to be a very lonely place for US President Barack Obama in the Palace behind me as he holds talks on the issue with other G20 leaders. The reason being that even traditional allies, the European Union, the European Council President, Herman Van Rompuy, has come out and said very clearly that there is no military solution to the Syrian crisis, and that any military intervention should go through the Security Council.feedback

Jul 23 2013

The Times' welcomes the future king, with the headline 'A Prince is Born' and provides a special royal supplement. It is only really 'The Independent' newspaper which dares to be different. It goes with the headline 'Cameron Retreats in War on Internet Porn', obviously with one eye on the general election and the picture of course outside Buckingham Palace.feedback

Jul 22 2013

As the news of the royal baby's arrival filtered down, the crowd behind me erupted in celebration. William and Catherine's son is the third in line to the British throne and he will take the title His Royal Highness, the Prince of Cambridge.feedback

Jun 17 2013

G8 members have an ambitious agenda over the next two days. But the world is a very different place to when this club was created. Can these eight leaders really deliver on promises they are about to make, when emerging superpowers such as China and India aren't even sitting at the table?feedback

Feb 19 2013

A decade ago an Italian gang broke into a diamond centre in Antwerp, acting on what turned out to be inside information. The ringleader of that gang was an employee. Many traders here in Antwerp's Diamond Quarter say the Brussels heist was carried out with such precision that they believe that too was an inside job.feedback

Stefan, can you give us an idea of what the mood is like inside the Obama camp?feedback
