I am that prodigal son who wasted all the portion entrusted to me by my father.
But I have not yet fallen at my father's knees. I have not yet begun to put away from me the enticements of my former riotous living.
I do not overlook the fact that the appearance of these new, free nations in the European political community not only celebrates the return of the prodigal son but also creates new sources of friction here and there.
