Meh!

I imagine that's what the majority of the country will be thinking when they tune into this evening's six o'clock news and hear that Martin Schulz has replaced Jerzy Buzek as El Presidente of the European Parliament.

Schulz is a nasty piece of work, often to be seen laughing and smirking as others speak in the EP in his role as leader of the Socialists*; he's a German replacing a Pole; he's also a bully, an arch-federalist and a shoo-in.

In 2008 he was famously compared to the Commandant of a Nazi Concentration Camp by Berlusconi and in 2010 Godfrey Bloom, a UKIP MEP, was ejected from the Chamber for calling out "Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Fuhrer" during a Schulz speech. Compared to Schulz, Buzek was a pussy-cat.

* Full title is the Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists & Democrats - the authoritarian bastards.

Here's what Nigel Farage had to say about him earlier today (and please, do click through to the other videos that pop up in the captions - you can never know too much about your enemy):


"Anti-British to his fingertips"

With thanks to Captain Ranty for the Farage video

Jolly old chap isn't he? I imagine that he'd be in demand as Santa Claus at children's parties in another life - if it weren't for his black, Spinelli heart.

UPDATE: I wouldn't normally reference Wikipedia but in this instance I am because it's interesting to see the lack of background information available on Schulz compared to other politicians.
