Jean Claude Junker, President of the European Commission has spelt out an ambitious vision for the future of the European Union.
Junker spelt out the EU’s agenda to further federalise the bloc and shift yet more power from the individual member states to the unelected Brussels elite.
Junker outlined plans for an EU Finance minister that would not be elected but appointed to oversee the economies of all member states.
Junker also claims that the UK will regret leaving the EU – a comment that was met with much dismay from Brexit supporters.
Expansion of Bloc and the euro zone was also key as well as significantly increasing integration of the militaries of the various states, establishing a single foreign policy and removing the right of states to veto decisions made by the unelected EU elite.
Many of these proposals do not bode well for Ireland in terms of our low corporate tax rate, neutrality, and national self-determination.
