After a week of anxiety over the Fukushima nuclear power station in Japan, now it is time for "Europanic," announcesLa Razón. The Spanish daily calls for "common sense in response to the nuclear crisis" and criticises remarks made by European Energy Commissioner, Günther Oettinger, who spoke of a nuclear "apocalypse," and, "without giving details," of certain power stations that do not respect the "strictest" safety standards. La Razón, which describes his behaviour as "unacceptable" and "a discredit to Europe and the institution he represents," also has harsh words for Commission President José Manuel Barroso, whose silence on the matter "amounts to tacit approval in a collegial institution."
