Von der Leyen’s agenda a “very dangerous” prospect – Carthy

July 4, 2019

The nominated president of the European Commission will pursue an increased militarisation of Europe and support the spending of billions on defence.

So says the Sinn Fein MEP Matt Carthy who was talking about Ursula von der Leyen whom the European Council this week selected for the EU’s top job after weeks of wrangling. 

Ms Von der Leyen is currently the German defence minister and Matt Carthy says she doesn’t hide her pro militarisation views.
