Angela Merkel will soon have to 'deal with' European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker, (cont)
smaller_text larger_text The British Prime Minister’s plans to limit welfare payments to migrants from other EU countries have had a mixed reaction. Poland, which has hundreds of thousands of nationals in Britain – said tightening the benefits system had to be within EU rules and it would block any restrictions on labour mobility. David Cameron proposed time limits to in-work and social benefits, as well as other restrictions – adding that changes to EU treaties would be needed. “These are UK ideas and they are part of the debate. They will have to be examined without drama, and should be discussed calmly and carefully. It is up to national lawmakers to fight against abuses of the system and the EU law allows for this,” said European Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas. There are reports suggesting that Germany forced Cameron to row back on a radical idea to cap directly the number of EU migrants entering Britain. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the British Prime Minister should commit ...
The European Commission along with Angela Merkel! Germany's economy goes down, ours go up, so we get told to pay up! It's wrong!
An EU agenda: keeping British in, Russians out, Germans down By Paul Taylor ROME (Reuters) - The first secretary-general of NATO, Lord Ismay, once said the Western defense alliance was created "to keep the Americans in, the Russians out and the Germans down". The task facing the European Union now might be described as to keep the British in, the Russians out and the Germans down. BRITISH IN Prime Minister David Cameron's demand to redraw Britain's relationship with the EU and put the result to a referendum in 2017 means the next few years are bound to be dogged by haggling over Brussels' powers and about opt-outs for London. If Britain, Europe's third largest economy, main financial center and joint biggest military and diplomatic power, were to become the first country ever to leave the bloc, it would deal a severe blow to itself but also to the EU's global standing. Last month's confrontation over the nomination of Jean-Claude Juncker as European Commission president against adamant British opposition ...
Jean-Claude Juncker should become the next European Commission president - even if there is no unanimity over the issue, Angela Merkel says.
Angela Merkel & David Cameron Angela Merkel on Tuesday told David Cameron to stop making “threats” over the allocation of top jobs in Brussels, as centre-right EU leaders met to discuss the bloc’s future economic direction. The German chancellor is frustrated by Mr Cameron’s claim that the appointment of Jean-Claude Juncker as European Commission president would hold back EU reforms and might prompt Britons to vote for an exit in his planned 2017 in-out referendum. Ms Merkel restated her backing for the former Luxembourg Prime Minister but held out the prospect of an alternative candidate emerging by saying that the “European spirit” involved a willingness to compromise. With Mr Cameron standing alongside her after a mini-summit in Sweden, Ms Merkel added a rebuke: “We cannot just consign to the backburner the question of the European spirit. Threats are not part and parcel of that spirit.” Her comments came after two days of talks by Europe’s four leading “reform-orie ...

Tradition has it that when leaders visit the Swedish country residence of Harpsund, the Prime Minister rows them out on to the lake. So on a sunny Monday evening Sweden's Fredrick Reinfeldt cast off with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Holland's Mark Rutte and Prime Minister David Cameron. The images of leaders in life jackets rowing round in circles lent themselves to many metaphors but the tranquil lake hardly set the scene for the discussions ahead. Mr Cameron has suggested the UK might cut adrift from Europe if Jean-Claude Juncker becomes the next president of the European Commission.
Merkel warns Cameron off UK exit threat to stop Juncker presidency Wednesday 11 June 2014 German Chancellor Angela Merkel has warned David Cameron not to use the threat of a UK exit from the EU in his campaign to block a federalist candidate from taking the helm of the European Commission. Mrs Merkel yesterday restated her support for Jean-Claude Juncker as the Commission's next president, following an overnight summit with Mr Cameron and the leaders of Sweden and the Netherlands at the Harpsund country residence of Swedish PM Fredrik Reinfeldt. Speaking alongside the other leaders at a press conference concluding the summit, Mr Cameron made clear it would be "very unhelpful" to his plan to campaign for Britain to stay in the EU in a referendum in 2017 if the former Luxembourg Prime Minister becomes the Commission's most senior official. Appointments to the EU's top jobs when the current Commission steps down in October must ensure that the 28-nation bloc is put "firmly on the path of reform", he said. Bu ...
BERLIN — German-British tensions over who should next lead the European Union appeared to heighten on Tuesday as Chancellor Angela Merkel delivered a scarcely veiled rebuke to Prime Minister David Cameron of Britain, warning that “threats” will not work as the 28 members struggle to mend new fissures in their unity aggravated by European Parliament elections last month. Nationalist and populist parties with a firm anti-European Union stance achieved striking gains in those elections. In France and Britain, such parties shockingly finished in first place, heightening both the unevenness of the Franco-German partnership at the Continent’s core and Mr. Cameron’s problem over whether his country, increasingly skeptical of the value of European Union inclusion, remains a member. The resulting feud has crystallized around Jean-Claude Juncker, the former Luxembourg Prime Minister. Ms. Merkel has backed him, if somewhat halfheartedly, to be the new president of the European Commission, the European Unio ...

We have just composed a list with the following names and institutions and placed it in our freezer: New Democracy, PASOK, IMF, European Commission, ECB, Angela Merkel, Mario Draghi, Evangelos Venizelos, Antonis Samaras. By this occult action, may these entities and all who ally with them be frustrated and prevented in their efforts to destroy democracy in Greece and bring a reign of fear and slavery down upon the Greek people. May it be so! All blessings, love & light, to hold the strength and fortitude of our young hero Alexis Tsipras and the people of Greece. Take heart, and refuse to bow to the darkness!
