United States Of Europe – FAKE NEWS | Zelo Street

Martin Schultz and Jean-Claude Juncker. Mr Juncker appears to be saying, “Cooee Martin – your pants are on fire” – according to the Zelo Street blog.

Martin Schulz, leader of Germany’s centre-left SPD, called at his party’s conference yesterday for a “United States Of Europe”. Having indicated his desire for a federal Europe, he declared “Such a constitutional treaty has to be written by a convention that includes civil society and the people. This constitutional treaty will then have to be put to the member states and those that don’t approve it will automatically have to leave the EU”.

It was too good to be true. It was, in reality, Fake News. No surprise there, then.

That Schulz is in no position to make such demands stick, that he’s shifted his position more than once on this issue, and that it isn’t going to happen – every member state has a veto, remember – was not allowed to enter as the easily persuaded among the Europhobic fringe went off the end of the pier in no style at all.

Gergely Polner had a simple and inconvenient observation to contribute: “That’s against the EU Treaties”. So it’s not happening.

Jon Worth went further: “Note to hacks / politicians / Brits getting annoyed / frustrated / surprised by Schulz: 1) He is not going to be the Chancellor 2) What he’s saying about the EU doesn’t even have wide support in his party 3) He’s always hectoring and negative … Think of that before commenting!”

    According to the UKColumn reporting on this today at 1pm, there is much more to this than meets the eye of the public and our MPs.

    I strongly suggest people go watch the broadcast which shines an illuminating light of things going on behind the Brexit scene which should alarm the nation.

    After watching the UKColumn News Feed today and then reading this blogs headline I am left wondering why the outcry of Fake News. I wonder if the Cry of Fake News is to act as a distractor in an attempt to discredit Real News being given a credible voice.

    The UK Columns program today is packed full of through documentary evidence which leaves me questioning the analysis in this blog.

    Please all take a look and make your own minds up.

    it’s not “fake news”, this “former IT consultant” blogger is saying that martin schulz has no power to make it happen, which is a different matter. he did say it, and he meant it, and he has some power, esp as king-maker in german politics right now. so ironically you could say that this guys dismissal is ‘fake news’ 😉

      related: ..and who is tim fenton? (the zero street blogger):

      “Fenton, a former IT consultant with a quiet Yorkshire voice, is an unlikely campaigner for media plurality in the UK. The son of a teacher and a pilot from Leeds, who spent most of his working life travelling the country as an information systems analyst, Fenton started blogging six years ago this month, around the time that his work contracts dried up and the phone-hacking scandal kicked off. The blog began life as a hobby that he didn’t take particularly seriously. Fenton says he doesn’t really know why he started it, but does admit to having been inspired by other people’s poor blogging efforts. “I thought I can do that and I can do it better,” he recalls.”

        Is this an attempt to blacken Mr Fenton’s name? It all seems fairly reasonable to me.
        It’s “ZeLo Street”, by the way, not “Zero Street”.

    2. Mike Sivier Post author

      That’s very twisted logic you’re using.
      The story is about the way certain media types seized on Mr Schultz’s words to claim that the EU’s leaders want to create the so-called ‘United States of Europe’ he mentioned. That’s fake news. There is no indication that anybody in a position to do anything about it has any intention of making it happen.
