The new EU Commission sounds a lot like the old EU Commission.
And with the exception of Hungary and Slovenia, the EPP Party is quite pathetic and of low quality.
Another embarrassing example of EPP membership is EU Commision Vice President Margaritis Schinas (he even looks soft), responsible for ‘Promoting the European Way of Life’. The Greek civil servant (i.e. government opportunist) was spokesperson of Juncker’s EU Commission from 2014 to 2019, and deputy director-general of the EU Commission’s Directorate-General for Communication between 2015 and 2019.
Like most useless Eurocrats, Schinas keeps feeding off the government system…seeking to expand scope of EU to increase his own influence.
– Migration is an issue Europe must learn to live with in the coming years, and needs better management, EU Commision Vice President Margaritis Schinas said on Thursday, prior to his meeting in Greece.
Better management? An issue Europe must learn to live with? Where does he get his talking points from? 🤔
Like his predecessor Dimitris Avramopoulos (also from Greece), Schinas wants to commit the EU to mass migration…as the new normal.
Two years ago, Avramopoulos layed out his manifesto on migration and claimed that Europeans must accept mass migration from the third world as the “new norm”.
“It’s time to face the truth. We cannot and will never be able to stop migration,” writes EU Commissioner for Migration Dimitris Avramopoulos, in a piece for POLITICO, published two years ago entitled, “Europe’s Migrants Are Here to Stay”.
Avramopoulos, a career bureaucrat from Greece (like Schinas), added “human mobility will increasingly define the 21st century”, and that mass migration is an issue Brussels has committed Europe to “for the long haul”.
* Some things never change. Brussels is focused on committing the EU to mass migration.
Yes, Visegrad can resist for now, but at some point, they may find it impossible to do so while ‘member states’.
Whether one thinks the EU can change or not is pure speculation; in the meantime, Visegrad and others in CEE may find it prudent to start preparing for an alternative path.
The future does not look good for the Project.
