Our new EU leaders: “Two out of three ain’t bad” July 2, 2019

Posted by Tomboktu in European Politics.

To quote Meatloaf, “Baby we can talk all night/ But that ain’t gettin’ us nowhere/ … Two out of three ain’t bad“.

For the Right, that is.

  • Ursula von der Leyen (DE) CDU/EPP, President of the European Commission
  • Charles Michel (BE) MR/ALDE, President of the Council
  • Josep Borrell (ES) PSOE/S&D, High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy (and well away from any economic role where lefty ideas would be dangerous)

(And as a bonus, Christine Legarde (FR) UMP/EPP to be the president of the ECB.)

To misquote him, “And maybe we can cry all night/ But that’ll never change the way they rule”

I wonder if the European Parliament will block this because none of them were Spitzenkandidates.

How bad can the candidates be for the ECB role that you have to pick someone with a recent financial negligence conviction?
