So Arnie wants to be President of the EU. This idea did so make me laugh.
But then I thought, why not. He is an Austrian, that must give him the right to stand for election.. oh hang on.. the role of EU President is not an elected one is it.. no no no no no, it is the heads of the 27 member states who appoint the President.
As Guy Verhofstadt, former Belgian prime minister and head of the European Parliament’s Liberal group said:
“It gave me a pretty good laugh,”
“it shows a total lack of knowledge of Europe,”
Quite so, but then anyone who believes that the EU is democratic, where its leaders are elected is living in cloud cuckoo land.
It seems that Hollywood fantasy politics seems to suit Schwarzenegger, who as the elected leader of the worlds 8th largest economy managed to make the state insolvent in just 8 years, turning it into America’s very own Greece, Ireland, Portugal and Spain all in one go, and paying state employees either with lay-offs or ‘credit notes’.
How do in fact the bankrupt bailout the insolvent?
So, bring him on I say, if he can do the same for the EU as he did for California, it will only hasten the demise of the demonic empire. (he only has to convince 27 people instead of 500 million voters)
