President of the European parliament, Martin Schulz, has a talent for saying stupid things at opportune times…and the Brexit results are no exception.
Schulz, told the Guardian that EU lawyers were studying whether it was possible to speed up the triggering of article 50 of the Lisbon treaty, in order to rid Europe of those pesky, democratically minded Brits. Democracy is a virus to Brussels oligarchy, which if left untreated can spread to other EU colonies.
Schulz then went on a sore loser tirade which not only displayed his unstatesman-like demeanor, but also how out of touch he truly is with the European peasants he rules over.
The unelected President of the European parliament said uncertainty was “the opposite of what we need”, and then added this beauty…
“A whole continent is taken hostage because of an internal fight in the Tory party.”
“I doubt it is only in the hands of the government of the United Kingdom.”
“We have to take note of this unilateral declaration that they want to wait until October, but that must not be the last word.”
The UK’s Guardian reports that Juncker and Tusk, regretful that democracy was carried out, are now in favor of speeding up the UK’s exit.
We think they are bluffing, trying to show that in this break up, they are over the whole UK thing, and ready to date other states. Maybe Turkey or Ukraine will get a shot. Georgia also looks kind of cute…but they will always be second best to the United Kingdom.
Schulz’s comments were partially echoed by the president of the European commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, who said he there was no reason to wait until October to begin negotiating Britain’s departure from the European Union.
“Britons decided yesterday that they want to leave the European Union, so it doesn’t make any sense to wait until October to try to negotiate the terms of their departure,” Juncker said in an interview with Germany’s ARD television station. “I would like to get started immediately.”
The president of the European council, Donald Tusk, said the 27 remaining members of the bloc would meet next week to assess its future without Britain. “It is a historic moment, but not a moment for hysterical reactions,” he said.
