Again though, they don't understand irony. Toby will be here in a moment yelling "Democracy", and that yellow streak of piss from Scandanavia (the one who rips off ASL products and badges it as his own) will be here shouting "Gulag Wanker...Gulag Wanker...Gulag Wanker"...Ursula von der Leyen was elected last night by the newly elected European Parliament as the new President of the EU Commission.
The new MEPs voted ‘narrowly’ (apparently) 383 to 327.
Or 53.9% to 46.1%.
Or, put another way, twice the margin of the Brexit referendum vote.
Meanwhile, Nigel Farage says he’s going to use Mrs Von der Leyen as a ‘poster girl’ for Brexit.
Hopefully, if he does, it’ll spectacularly backfire - because she has been elected by a clear majority of EU citizens’ recently elected representatives, and she was elected by a significantly larger margin than the UK voted to leave the EU.
