The head of the European Commission, in a complete surprise to himself, found that his speech was attended by 30 of the 751 deputies in the European Parliament.
Standing in the almost empty hall in Strasburg, Jean-Claude Juncker was so disappointed with the behavior and discipline of European parliamentarians, called them “not serious people.”
“This is a completely ridiculous situation”, – said Juncker.
Speaker of Parliament, Antonio Tajani reacted emotionally to Juncker’s attacks.
“You can criticize Parliament , but it is not the European Commission that should monitor the Parliament, it is the European Parliament must monitor the European Commission”, – said Tajani.
“There are about 30 of you, and you are going to monitor the European Commission? You are simply ridiculous.” – retorted Juncker.
The head of the European Commission, offended, said, – “I’ll never attend a meeting like this.”
The current Presidency of the European Parliament is held by Malta. The Prime Minister of Malta, Joseph Muscat smiled as he watched the dispute erupt. Then he said that actually, they were supposed to gather today to debate the important issue of the resettlement of 160,000 refugees, currently located in Italy and Greece.
We suffered a “failure in this matter”, concluded Muscat.
Ed: In more ways than one!
