The FN and Ukip exclusively use the European Parliament as a platform to serve their national ambitions.
Jean -Claude Juncker would ignore it, but it lets nothing. Marine Le Pen and his allies europhobes found in the case of tax evasion LuxLeaks a golden opportunity to impose their power to harm the European Parliament.
On paper, the first pass of weapons ended in defeat in the open field for MEPs of the National Front, their British allies Ukip and Italian Beppe Grillo. The confidence motion against the Juncker Commission has gathered Thursday that 101 votes against 461 and 88 abstentions. It would have taken at least 376. The extreme right and the “populists” have not had your fill of their voices. The head of the EU executive receives more votes than his election.
wet Firework, the first attempt yet arouses discomfort in the traditional parties. He confirmed that the FN and Ukip exclusively use Parliament as a platform to serve their national ambitions. It blurs the message of the far left and the Greens, who would have liked to do battle with the Luxembourg past the head of the Commission. He forced conservatives, centrists and socialists to support unconditionally or so.
Jean-Claude Juncker, he gets confidence as in every vote against the Commission launched since 1990. Still, the record LuxLeaks now sticks to the skin, such as plaster Captain Haddock. And nothing in the texts, prevents Marine Le Pen and his allies to return. In the Chamber, they need only to gather 76 signatures for a renewed attack of censorship.
