Hooooooo boy! Britain (snort, the "UK", snort snort) has been a deadweight dragging back the EU for decades. Always exceptionalist, always complaining, and always wanting to be treated special, Britain has continuously been a thorn in the EU's side.
Now, with a Hard Brexit coming and no legitimate chance for anything else, the EU will be unhitched from the deadweight that is Britain and their small-world vision, and have put forth a forward-looking change in leadership, that plots an exciting future for the Union.
Proper technology oversight and legislation. Aggressive doubling-down on green goals. And appointment of an Irishman to the role as Minister of Trade.
If you are not up on Brexit and the "Irish Question", what the EU has done is slapped Britain in the face with a wet fish, and made it very clear that Ireland is - and will remain - a part of the EU, even when Britain leaves. Google the "Irish Backstop" to learn exactly why this is such a juicy stance for the EU to take.
The best part? This isn't a pipe-dream-team. It is a group of leaders who have passed the initial vetting with better support than expected.
The Hungarian dude is an issue, and I think is a plot device selected by the EU to force their Prime Minister - Viktor Orban - to heel. When this guy loses his bid to be the Minister of EU Expansion (or whatever the title is), Hungary will be further isolated from the "business end" of the EU, and it will be seen as a referendum on Hungary's rapid decline into totalitarianism.
There is nothing in this article that doesn't make me grin, and think, "FUCK YEAH, EU!! Go kick some ass, pick up the Baton Of Leadership that America has abandoned, and give us all hope for the future!"
It's nice to see some positivity and good news in politics. That's rare these days.
