The European Union bureaucrats get more and more ridiculous by the day. The European Commission’s President, Jean-Claude Juncker, just attacked Donald Trump for promoting Brexit, and threatened to support Texan independence as a revenge, states CNBC article. And it wasn’t April Fool’s Day joke.
“The newly elected U.S. president was happy that Brexit was taking place and has asked other countries to do the same,” Juncker stated. “If he [Trump] goes on like that, I am going to promote the independence of Ohio and Austin, Texas,” he continued.
In the past, Juncker had served as a Prime Minister of Luxembourg, an ultra-tiny nation of around half a million people. After, he has joined the EU’s bureaucratic ranks and is among the permanent faces on the European political scene.
The European Union bureaucrats are known for creating excessive and often ridiculous policies. In fact, the regulatory burden, on top of migration, was a reason for Brexit. The United kingdom has just began its two-year journey through exit negotiations. Some say, Britain is likely to be punished to prevent other member states from leaving.
Among the latest announcements, is the European Union’s plan to crack down on toasters and hair-dryers as devices considered to be harmful to the environment. The European Union also recognizes snails as fish, and bans bananas that have abnormal curvatures.
What’s more, the EU prohibits recycling of teabags and makes it illegal for children under 8 to blow balloons. Meanwhile, the taxes in Europe are high, deficits rising, while youth unemployment is high. In some countries, such as Greece, Spain, and Italy, it exceeds 20 percent.
The EU officials are out of touch with reality, and Juncker is just another example of how ridiculous the EU has become. Soon, this structure may as well collapse. Other nations are already considering their own “Brexits.”
