I’m Esther de Lange, the young top candidate for the Dutch list of CDA in the European elections. I think we should make Europe focus on its core business. I know about different cultures in Europe: as a young girl I worked in French Lyon (helping stranded Dutch car drivers) and worked for the German fruit juice business. I know the European Parliament and its procedures by heart, where I worked as an assistant many years previous to my election in 2007. Nowadays I spend as much time as possible touring in The Netherlands, to listen and talk about priorities.
