The European Union showed its true colours again this week, although its focus was Spain, a country famous for ignoring the EU. The president of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, said that Spain should be able to form a “stable” government as quickly as possible, although he refused to interfere in the exact composition of the future Spanish government or comment on movements in certain regions and provinces, referring to Catalonia, which is striving to gain independence. Well, after having said all that, he and the EU have interfered. The fact that he does not intend to get involved in the exact composition of the new government is very generous considering neither he nor the EU have any powers or rights to do so. Spain spoke at the elections and now it is up to the politicians. Another good reason to ignore the EU.
