German Chancellor, Angela Merkel was slammed by AfD’s Leader now Germany’s second most popular political party.
Leader of Alternative for Germany, Alice Weidel attacked Merkel’s stance to the UK during Brexit negotiations, explaining that Germany should not punish Britain, going on to say that the EU is running scared other nations will want to leave now it’s obvious the remainers and EU-fanatics lied about the effects of Brexit.
“The EU wants to make an example of Great Britain, a punishment beyond any economic or political reason. This is not how one treats a European partner. And by the way the recession that was predicted ahead of the referendum did not happen! The British economy has showed growth.
“Now Brussels, Paris and Berlin are afraid that others could follow, that other states in Europe could take back their sovereignty. And that is why the European Commission is planning to restrict Britain’s access to the Single Market even during the transition period.
“By supporting these plans of the ostracism of Germany’s biggest trading partner in the EU you are taking free trade and competition as a hostage and making a failed EU ideology.
“The good trading relationship with Great Britain and the rest of the continent have to be maintained – otherwise Europe will be at a disadvantage in global trade.”
The United Kingdom now has a potential ally we should not ignore right in the centre of the 28-member bloc, in Germany. The rise of Conservative-populism across Europe is making waves and the great success of the AfD will have massive ramifications for politics all over Europe. Do I sense the tides are turning?
