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!”
