The appointment of Martin Selmayr by Jean Claude Junker to the position of sec gen of the EU commission has raised even the heckles of the normally servile EU based journalists.
Apart from the very questionable process involved in his appointment ,or his complete lack of experience ,or even his less than flattering reputation , there is the small matter of the allegations of him winning commissioners support by promising them even bigger severance packages at the end of their terms (tax free of course)
Apart from all that , there is the small matter than a German is now in the sec gen of the Commission , the EU Parliament ...and the External Action service ...so policy , parliament and foreign affairs are all controlled by Germans .......
Now many of us are fully aware that since German reunification and the introduction of the Euro , the EU has become a vassal for Germany's (rightful in their view) Economic and Political domination of the continent ,but others prefer wilful ignorance or delusion
As the Irish media glossed over this I thought i would bring it to the attention of the latter
