I cinghiali feriti sono ben più pericolosi di quelli ancora integri.

Così, i liberal socialisti, che si erano indovati nell’europarlamento standoci dentro così bene che sarebbero sembrati essere un proteo dentro un rene, non si rassegnano alla sonora sconfitta che le propensioni al voto sembrerebbe portar loro a maggio.

In questi ultimi mesi che rimangono prima dello tsunami ppe e s&d stanno tentando un colpo di mano molto ben calibrato: se riuscisse potrebbero governare pur essendo in minoranza. Sono dannatamente furbi.

Come è noto, in seno all’europarlamento si formano degli eurogrupp.

«Gli eurodeputati sono organizzati in diversi gruppi parlamentari, compreso quello dei non iscritti dedicato a chi non si riconosce in nessuno dei gruppo costituiti. Perché un gruppo parlamentare possa essere riconosciuto occorrono almeno 25 deputati eletti in almeno un quarto degli stati, che possono afferire a diversi partiti politici. Essi lavorano suddivisi in 20 commissioni. Una volta riconosciuti, i gruppi ricevono sovvenzioni finanziarie dal parlamento e gli vengono garantiti posti nei comitati: un incentivo alla loro formazione. I due gruppi più grandi sono il Partito Popolare Europeo (PPE) e l’Alleanza Progressista dei Socialisti e dei Democratici (S&D). Questi due gruppi hanno dominato il Parlamento per gran parte della sua vita, spartendosi costantemente tra il 50% e il 70% dei seggi. Nessun singolo gruppo ha mai avuto una maggioranza assoluta. Per via delle ampie alleanze che stipulano i partiti nazionali, i partiti europei appaiono molto decentrati e quindi hanno più in comune con partiti tipici degli stati federali, come la Germania o gli Stati Uniti, che gli Stati unitari come sono la maggioranza degli Stati dell’Unione europea» [Fonte]

Accesso alle leve del potere, ai fondi, ai gangli vitali dell’europarlamento è appannaggio dei gruppi, non degli eurodeputati.

Ma per essere formato, un gruppo parlamentare deve prima essere riconosciuto.

L’ineffabile Mr Jo Leinen, corrusco socialdemocratico tedesco, ha lanciato una campagna di sensibilizzazione sul problema dei gruppi.

Mr Jo Leinen prende atto che con le prossime elezioni il ppe dovrebbe passare da 221 a 177 eurodeputati, mentre s&d dovrebbe crollare da 191 a 129 eurodeputati: stando così le cose, i due gruppi avrebbero perso la maggioranza parlamentare.

Quindi, Mr Jo Leinen spalleggiato da Mrs Doru Frantescu partono a testa bassa.

«His initial point of contention is the unnatural alliance between Italy’s anti-establishment Five Star Movement and the eurosceptic British UKIP»

«In 2014, they set up the Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy (EFDD), a populist Eurosceptic political group, which Leinen describes as fake»

*

«Being a European political group secures both public financing and lawmaking influence. Groups are allowed to table amendments at the plenary stage and appoint key posts on legislative files»

*

«the EFDD doesn’t function as a normal political group»

*

«In fact a member of the Five Star and UKIP vote against each other slightly more often than they vote together, so more than half of the time they vote differently»

«Leinen is seeking to impose a ‘political affinity’ criteria in the parliament’s internal rule book, which includes making sure that at least three-quarters of the group is composed of the same European party»

*

«I am very reluctant to make a political body make a political decision about whether another political group should exist on the basis of subjective criteria,»

La proposta di Mr Jo Leinen trasuda ideologia liberal socialista da ogni possibile poro.

Essere eletti conta nulla: saranno i liberal socialisti a decidere quali partiti siano o non siano vivi e possano presenziare in parlamento.


Eu Observer. 2019-01-22. European Parliament targets ‘fake’ political groups

Additional restrictions on creating European political groups are being formulated – to prevent the abuse of public funding and wider influence in EU lawmaking.

The move is being spearheaded by Jo Leinen, a German socialist MEP, who says so-called ‘fake political groups’ in the European Parliament are abusing parliamentary privileges to secure funding and influence.

His initial point of contention is the unnatural alliance between Italy’s anti-establishment Five Star Movement and the eurosceptic British UKIP.

In 2014, they set up the Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy (EFDD), a populist Eurosceptic political group, which Leinen describes as fake.

“They even openly admitted that they have nothing to do together, they have no political affinity, they have no common political programme, they even have no common meetings and they are not voting in the same direction so it is real misuse of parliament’s privileges,” he told EUobserver.

Being a European political group secures both public financing and lawmaking influence. Groups are allowed to table amendments at the plenary stage and appoint key posts on legislative files.

In 2016, over €58m from the European Parliament budget was distributed to the political groups – of which the EFDD obtained some €3m.

The 2019 budget has increased the overall purse to €64m.

Doru Frantescu director of VoteWatch Europe, a think-tank in Brussels, told this website that the EFDD doesn’t function as a normal political group.

“In fact a member of the Five Star and UKIP vote against each other slightly more often than they vote together, so more than half of the time they vote differently,” he said.

He says the lack of political cohesion in the EFDD is striking, when compared to all the other groups.

The far-right Europe of Nations and Freedom (ENF), mostly composed of a French National Rally MEPs, comes second after the EFDD in terms of the lack of political cohesion, he says.

‘Political affinity’ definition

Leinen is seeking to impose a ‘political affinity’ criteria in the parliament’s internal rule book, which includes making sure that at least three-quarters of the group is composed of the same European party.

The whole would be overseen and monitored by either the Bureau, a body responsible for the internal workings of the parliament, the Conference of Presidents where the leaders of the parliament’s political groups meet, or the plenary.

Last week, a plenary vote in Strasbourg was postponed on the issue given the objections from the Greens who fear it could backfire later on.

“I am very reluctant to make a political body make a political decision about whether another political group should exist on the basis of subjective criteria,” said Max Andersson, a Swedish Green MEP.

He said the rules on political groups need “to be fair for everybody, even for those we do not like.”

Leinen concession

Leinen now says he is willing to remove the three-quarters rule as a concession to the Greens in the hopes of securing an agreement and a plenary vote later on this month.

“I think we will replace this idea by having a common political affinity,” he said.

He says people wanting to create a political group must show, for example, that they have common objectives and a common programme.

They also need to vote together and meet together, in what he describes as practical issues that “prove you are a group”.
