EU Head Sheds

Pesky majority overriding single vetos.
Yup, that press release was the natural progression of this from Moscovici in 2018.
Note that the first two proposals envisage "decision to be taken swiftly."
I wonder why?

The proposed direction of travel for the EU has been well advertised for some time, I am just surprised that some people of a certain viewpoint are still surprised.

A sizeable minority of the electorate are desperate to stay in the EU, and would no doubt swallow the Euro as a price to pay.
The Euro itself is a good idea, the only problem is that from the word go a certain amount of "imaginative book keeping" as well as "selective observance of the law" has been practised, which resulted in the current running goat f**k.
 
Meanwhile Uschi is still trying her hardest to convince the EU parliament that she is the best candidate, after all she speaks 2 foreign languages, wow, and she was born in Brussels, something that I would not admit in public.
According to the morning TV news her efforts are not even being received with mild enthusiasm. The Greens and the socialists just don't want her, she is too wishy washy on important matters eg climate.
This could be a train crash in slow motion.

Brexit loons still attempting the impossible.

Trying to attempt to justify their brain dead, gas lit, unthinking fit of ignorance in June 2016.

It's like watching retards trying to push water uphill

Tragical

I take it the heat wave is getting to you.
Take a lie down in a darkened room.
Soon it will all seem so unimportant.
Just like your opinions.

I notice that you tend to avoid straying into the dangerous waters of answering any questions. This is the more usual route to convert someone to your view.

So are the other EU countries sending their best talent to Brussels or is it a useful retirement home/reward for playing the game in domestic politics?

FFS @Bagl0ck how many times do we have to spell this out for you? You don't want the EU to go Federal and you don't want the Euro. You also know that's exactly what's going to happen. You voted the wrong way but you're too scared to admit it. Utter moron.

It's sadly true, EU federalism is a matter of when with no measure of if and obligatory adoption of the Euro is also inevitable. One would have to be astoundingly blinkered not to see or admit these realities, they have not been in doubt for at least a full decade. The last chance to chop these down was Maastricht and that was in John Major's era.
Bizarrely I'm not anti Europe as I've lived and worked in Brussels for a fair while and Brexit will cause me all sorts of problems, but I am rabidly anti Federal and it's been a blatantly obvious direction of travel driven by certain forces for so long it's embedded.
Single country veto powers are not going to last long either, the writing is indelibly on the wall for those so it's only a matter of time before it's "like it or lump it".
 
The debate about von der Leyen continues, with the German SPD saying no, she is not votable. The CDU/CSU warn of the consequences should von der Leyen not get elected as President. The consequences being that the EU Council would have just one month to nominate another candidate, which is a lot easier said than done. Should von der Leyen fail and it is by no means certain that she will succeed, then that is endex for her. A return to her former post of Minister of Defence is almost impossible, that then gives Merkel a headache as she has to do a reshuffle and find a new Minister of Defence.
As stated in an earlier post, a running goat f**k.

Oh dear!
How sad
Never mind!

She'll have to find a new one if vdL gets the presidency anyway.

True, but if von der Leyen gets rejected Angie will have to try and find a slot for her somewhere in Berlin. If von der Leyen gets through, God forbid, then Angie justs slots in a replacement which would be easier.
 
And some still claim they don't understand why the BBC sees it fit to terminate the excellent This Week and thus stop Andrew Neil raising "difficult" questions:

Congratulations to Ursula. A complete unknown in the EU hierarchy until a few weeks ago. A failed Minister in Germany. A third rate candidate for the Presidency. Being a former gynaecologist with 5 children seems to be her only success story. And now President of the EU Commission.

And still not a single Remainer has been on this thread to support or even defend the new leadership of the EU. Maybe their heads are just too firmly implanted in the sand. Or just can't find the words in their winning moment of ecstasy.... I can wait.
 
Who knows? Why do I have to come up with a narrative for the future of the EU to satisfy you?

Anything beats abruptly unplugging the UK from its biggest trading partner, plus 60 other countries.

The unknowns of a brexit with no plan are rampant and endless.

To try to make some kind of predictive equivalence with our potential future in the EU, where the legal, economic and political framework are all known and are changing at a glacial pace is primary school level debating.

Let's cut off our feet because we may suffer a serious foot injury at an unspecified time in the future is what your logic amounts to.

You received a braincell for posting ridiculous advice with regards to investing
It's not to satisfy anybody. It's to know that you have thought all of the CoAs through, and based your point of view on one that you've thought of.

Or you're actually thinking about this instead of hitching your wagon to the 'trendy' view.

Cutting off feet analogy.... Sh*t. I've told you before. You're toilet at analogies.

CROUTONS ASSEMBLE!!!!!

Defend the eu lads, explain how it's got faults but we can reform it from within. Form a sort of circle around it, of you stars, and face out.

@Graculus @Brotherton Lad @skid2 @chillsjag @Alan Partridge ahhhaaaaaa @Higgs_bosun @Bagl0ck
