Well this was extremely interesting... Made me think of the whole far-right panic around refugees and how "they're coming here to rape our [sic!] women". 😟. Also a very anti-Semitic myth I heard about "incestuous orgies" on the island of Djerba... It is depressing...

"The decision effectively gives the European Council the blessing of two of the largest groups in the European Parliament to kill the Spitzenkandidat or lead candidate system." <- It's not a FPTP system and never was! So let's not call the funeral services just yet...

What pisses me off is the constant attempt to frame EU decision making as "🇫🇷+🇩🇪 agree X", especially by much of the media. Then we see how easily small countries can skuper a common EU position. Case in point: 🇪🇪, 🇨🇿, 🇭🇺 and 🇵🇱 torpedoing the climate declaration yesterday...

The EU really needs her as Comm President. She's a spitzencandidate with a good public profile ("the one that fined Google"). It's a smart move to name her.

I love it that all the Easterners flock to join and when asked about "EUSSR" they laugh and say it's nothing like, but Europhobes still mange to find that one looney dissident that swears that Juncker is literally Brezhnev 2.0.
