it could be argued that given that May is an un-elected Prime mnister


Oh the irony.

And who exactly voted Jean-Claude Juncker for President Of The European Union ?


The MEP's. You know, the ones WE elected....It would be silly to open a vote to the 27 members states as each country would vote for one of their own MEP's... If that was the case you would have a German in charge from now until eternity.

The majority of those that voted, not the majority of the population - as with the US elections, a minority of people voted to change the future of a country : 17 million in the UK voted to leave (out of a population of 64 million), 63 million voted for Trump (out of a population of 326 million) ...let those figures sink in a wee bit ... which majority again ?



The majority who voted. The rest who simply couldn't be bothered will now

have to take what those who could be bothered voted for!

I know of a few 'remainers' who were either too busy or just simply couldn't

be bothered.

Due to the Eu­roscep­tic vote, the left failed to gather enough votes. Even if we add the so­cial­ists, en­vi­ron­men­tal­ists, rad­i­cal left and the centre together, no al­ter­na­tive ma­jor­ity emerges. Juncker is cho­sen by Par­lia­ment, in­clud­ing by his op­po­nents for the Pres­i­dency of the Com­mis­sion, as the victorious 'can­di­date' from the elec­tion re­sults, and thus, is de­mo­c­ra­tically elected.
But, as you prob­a­bly already know, the can­di­date for the Com­mis­sion is ap­pointed by the Coun­cil of Europe or the heads of state, 'based on the results of the Eu­ro­pean elec­tions.' In the­ory, things are pretty sim­ple.

Ini­tially, this is also what An­gela Merkel hoped for. As usual, the pow­er­ful Ger­man Chan­cel­lor has flipflopped and intends to chal­lenge the re­sults of the Eu­ro­pean elec­tions (even though her own party cam­paigned for Juncker when he was nominated for the elec­tions.
