The leader of the European Commission (EC) said Tuesday there’s no way the European Union will continue to be united by a single currency without moving toward a political union within the next few years.
EC President Manuel Barroso, formerly a Portuguese politician, announced he will reveal plans outlining a path toward the creation of a “European Federation” next year ahead of EU Parliamentary elections.
“We want to put all the elements on the table, in a clear and consistent way, even if some of them may sound like political science fiction today. They will be reality in a few years’ time,” Barosso claimed.
The idea of a politically federated Europe is extremely divisive among the EU’s 27 member nations, with Great Britain also internally divided over how – and how fully – it will be able to renegotiate its unique “opt-out” membership within the increasingly globalist EU structure.
