Any decent business mind and people who care about community know that if only they had been smart enough to say what everyone knew 5 years ago, It should have read:
"The longstanding ally of Chancellor Angela Merkel said in an interview that the EU needed flexibility ..... to avoid the transfer of more powers from national capitals to Brussels.

Then they would have been able to avoid the further padding (see article for the padding instead) of "....." today:
