Bruges Group blasts German Chancellor Olaf Scholz over proposal for a European federation

This could include adverts from us and 3rd parties based on our understanding. The Bruges Group took to Twitter to blast Olaf Scholz, the Chancellor of Germany. They said that the new German government's sovereignty-stripping agenda vindicates our decision to leave the European Union.

It is likely that it will go down like a cup of cold sick in Central Europe. At the ongoing Conference on the Future of Europe, Scholz spoke about the push for a German federation. He said that a sovereign Europe is the key to our foreign policy. As an economically strong and the most populous country in the heart of Europe, it is our mission to promote a sovereign Europe. The liberal FDP, the Social Democrats and the Social Democrats in Germany agree that a coalition between the parties will push for a fully-fledged European federation. Nicola Beer, who co-managed the Europe section of the coalition agreement for the FDP, said everyone who has joined the club has subscribed to the rules of the club, and that includes the independence of the judiciary. Twitter users were split over Scholz's claims for stripping the country of its sovereignty. Monty 3812 said: A bit rich Germany finger wagging at Poland about rule of law.

I seem to remember all the Europhiles saying that would never happen, much like Clegg saying that the idea of an EU army was a dangerous fantasy, which turned out to be true. TuppenceworthUK tweeted: The only concrete reforms are the ability of MEPs to introduce draft laws and more QMV in the Council. Both of which are in principle democratic reforms, I guess.
