Germany, France and other EU countries are at each other’s throats again over who should get the EU’s top jobs. Lots are up for grabs including EU Commission President, European Council President, EU Central Bank President, and EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs.
As well as a bloody long nameplate for their office door, winners get lots of cash, limos, a private jet, secretaries, more perks than a Tory with a duck pond and a Belgium chocolate allowance.
They also get a place in the bunker in case America, Russia, China or a mad bomber from the IS let one off.
Their jobs are very important as they have a lot of people to control and keep in line. Their main job is to make sure no other country in the EU wants to leave like the UK. That would really scotch their plans and mean they’d only be in charge of one small country instead of lots of countries.
Unless they had a war and took over another country which they probably don’t want to do. It’s far easier to control by political means.
One of the highest and best-paid jobs is EU Commission President. Current holder is Luxembourgian Jean-Claude Juncker who hates the UK for wanting to leave the EU and disrupting his plans for EU domination.
This is why he gave the, admittedly incompetent, UK negotiators such a hard time. That and the fact that UK PM at the time, David Cameron didn’t like him and he probably hasn’t changed his opinion.
He’s going for payback before he gets kicked out.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Macron, who moves further and further to the right the more power he gets, are already arguing over who should get the job.
Oddly, no one has put forward Nigel Farage.
Let them get on with it.
Would Nigel Farage make a good EU leader?
