Merkel: EU States Must Prepare to Hand National Sovereignty over to Brussels. By Virginia Hale.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said that European Union (EU) member states must be prepared to transfer powers over to Brussels at a debate on the ‘tensions’ between globalisation and national sovereignty.

“Nation states must today be prepared to give up their sovereignty,” Merkel said, speaking at an event organised by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Berlin on Wednesday. …

Merkel condemned the fact that, in discussions over whether Germany should join a fast-growing number of nations pulling out of the agreement, “there were [politicians] who believed that they could decide when these agreements are no longer valid because they are representing The People”. …

Earlier in the day, the Chancellor had previously accused critics of her plans to sign up to the Global Compact for Safe and Orderly Migration, which declares migration ‘inevitable, necessary and desirable’, of advocating “nationalism in its purest form”.

The latest PC fantasy, straight from the German Chancellor: giving up control over who can can come and live in one’s country is “nationalism in its purest form”.

People go to war over issues like foreigners coming to live in their country uninvited. For instance, here are some migrants who weren’t invited to France in 1940:
