….did we realise what it meant?
I wonder how many of the electorate saw Hardtalk, aired on 24th February 2016, which was quite an ‘insightful’ interview of Martin Schulz conducted by Sarah Montague.
Perhaps the most telling comment from Martin Schulz comes (@11:29) when Schulz states: For the first time a Prime Minister of the United Kingdom is fighting for Europe and the European Union; this is progress in itself.
For one who has stated that he believes in the United Kingdom, it then begs the question why is he fighting for the European Union?
On Cameron’s ‘reforms’ Schulz earlier states, in answer to a question from Sarah Montague about whether the changes to migrant’s benefits will stop migrants coming to o the UK, Schulz said (04:57) : I don’t believe so, the whole exercise was to protect the United Kingdom for the time being….. (my emphasis).
On the subject of ‘contagion’ (whether other Member States, seeing what the UK has got, might want the same), Schuilz states that it was a ‘UK deal’ and it does not mean others may follow.
I believe Schulz is an authortive voice in the European Union and as such carries ‘weight’, so it follows that which he said was probably agreed in advance with his ‘contempories’.
As with all politicians, nothing they say can be taken at ‘face value’ and the sooner they begin talking to us in plain English, the better!
Politicians don’t indulge in ‘spin’, ‘double talk’ and ‘propaganda’? Tsk; ours do; and I don’t believe Schulz does!
