EP’s chief Brexit-negotiator Guy Verhofstadt on Catalonia: “reform Spain into a federal state in a federal Europe”
Oh Guy you. Everyone’s favourite Federal villain has just decided to double down and outdo EU VP Frans Timmermans in his response to Spain’s use of disproportionate federal state violence against a peaceful and democratic Catalonian referendum.
The Federal high priest’s solution is simply to “reform Spain into a federal state in a federal Europe.” Yeah, that ever closer union, how about no? And although he may look the part, it’s not just some utterly confused homeless guy – WWIINNKK – saying it. Verhofstadt is the EP’s chief Brexit-negotiator and leader the third-largest faction in the European Parliament, the ALDE group, consisting of 68 MEP seats.
