The EU knew what they were getting with von der Leyen…failure.
She still thinks the EU is #1! 🤸🇪🇺🤸😂
Ursula von der Leyen becomes unglued as nation-states start to go their own way on the vaccine.
– Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban pointed to Britain as a nation Brussels should follow when rolling out the Covid vaccine after more member states defied von der Leyen’s orders.
He said: “The British, instead of letting Brussels do it, negotiated for themselves and are in a much better position now.”
This comes as Germany and other nation-states broke ranks with the EU Commission’s control on the bloc’s vaccine rollout plan.
The EU Commission, just after Brexit, has to be embarrassed after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson pointed out that the UK had vaccinated more people than the rest of Europe combined.
In typical fashion, von der Leyen warned EU nation-states that they would not be permitted to negotiate separate vaccine deals: “The only framework we are negotiating in is as 27. We do this together and no member state on this legally binding basis is allowed to negotiate in parallel or to have a contract in parallel.”
With the UK gone, the EU will try to expand its scope and power. It’s up to the nation-states to pushback.
Migration is next on the block.
