Is Merkel facing a referendum? Germany fed-up with ‘head of EU government’ Juncker

GERMANY is growing increasingly concerned at the antics of EU Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker and is seeking allies in Brussels to reign him in.

Berlin was horrified at his recent trip to Russia – seen as a propaganda coup for Putin – and his remarks that the body he leads is a “political commission.”

This is in direct contradiction with European treaties which state that the commission is nothing more than a “government agency.”

German news magazine Spiegel commented: “Juncker sees himself as the head of a government – one who has made it his job to break agreements if it appears politically advantageous.”

During the Greek debt crisis he supported Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras – even though the Commission is not one of Greece’s creditors.

On refugees he wants to force EU member states to accept other countries’ offers to provide police officers to help protect their borders and has threatened states with monetary penalties should they not accept them.

And Juncker has begun making comments in public that make it seem as though he believes the growth and stability pact no longer applies.

“Because it’s France,” he recently answered when asked why he was allowing the country additional exceptions to the debt rules.
