Visegrad Money Song

The New EU Budget

14 February 2020

The V4 might find some similar topics in the budget negotiations to push for a common position, however, a different political situation will be an obstacle to do so.

It is not clear what are the musical tastes of prime ministers of the Visegrad countries. But in these days and weeks, there might be one song which rings in their ears repeatedly. “Money, money, money / Must be funny/ In the rich man’s world,” are lyrics of famous ABBA hit from 1976.

Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš and his colleagues Peter Pellegrini, Mateusz Morawiecki and Viktor Orbán are not alone to be bemused by the old song. All heads of states and governments of the EU member states think about money as the EU summit of 20 February is approaching.

On that day, the current President of the European Council Charles Michel wants to solve the issue of the next EU budget for years 2021-2027.
