In my opinion very poor budget, ESA continuing with very low budget and little ambition...

Low budget and little ambition go hand-in-hand in this case. As for the budget: ESA doesn't decide how large its budget is. That's done by the representing ministers of the member states. IOW: the member states decide how much they want to contribute to ESA. What ESA gets is what the member states are willing to give.

ESA has like forever been begging the member states for more money. And mostly to no avail. Had it been up to ESA, the budget would have been well over 10 billion Euros by now. The fact that it is actually well over 2 billion Euros less, is due to the member states simply not wanting to spend more on spaceflight.
Also: this is my 12,000th not-axed-by-the-mods post here. But I digress.
