Guy Verhofstadt, the European Parliament’s chief Brexit-negotiator, strikes again. It’s not like he’s never said it before, it’s just that the way he says it becomes more frightening every day. Not because he’s particularly powerful or in the position to do actual damage, no, one simply becomes concerned for his well being. A mind this delusional cannot hope to sustain itself for very long.
So what was it this time? Whilst calling for a “more democratic union” in the first sentence, that wish seems to have vanished two sentences later:
“We have to reform this whole business. A more effective union, a more democratic union, with a real European government. With a real European defence capacity. (…) A European army, yeah, what’s wrong with this?
Here in Europe, we don’t act, we don’t take decisions, because you need “unanimity” before you can do something.”
Continuing, the poor soul claims he sees the EU becoming more popular every day.
“I thought, after Brexit, now we’re going to have a referendum about Nexit in the Netherlands, about Dexit in Denmark. It didn’t happen. What we see is exactly the opposite. (…) Don’t underestimate, what I would call the “counter-revolution” is already underway.”
Alright Guy, easy now.
