EPP’s Manfred Weber backs the ‘Macron Manifesto’ but says EU Parliament must have bigger role.

Good grief. The competition for ‘more EU’ between Weber and Macron is nauseating.

– Manfred Weber, the European Peoples Party’s lead candidate for the upcoming European elections, told a German newspaper he shared French President Emmanuel Macron’s vision for Europe but thought the European Parliament should play a bigger role in it.

“I share Macron’s ambitions but in my opinion he doesn’t go nearly enough into the key role the European Parliament plays in the European reform process,” Weber told Die Welt.

* The reform process? Watch out, for Macron and Weber, this means a race to extend the power and scope of Brussels.

The nationalists and defenders of the nation states must unite now before a German-style version of the Grand Coalition encompasses the whole of Europe.
