Scraping the barrel! VDL’s rock-bottom reputation in Germany laid bare in new poll
Just 15 percent of the German public have a favourable opinion of the gaffe-prone European Commission president, a survey by the Allensbach Institute revealed. Leading the EU’s disastrous handling of the coronavirus pandemic and its ever stumbling vaccine rollout contributed to the Eurocrat’s awful image.
And more concerning still to the unapologetic europhile, the poll revealed that the pandemic is fuelling growing Euroscepticism in the country.
In total 64 percent of people quizzed had more faith in Germany’s federal government than the EU when it came to ordering vaccines.
Germany and the EU as a whole have lagged far behind the UK, which utilised Brexit to order millions of does and get its economy moving months ahead of its European neighbours.
Meanwhile, Mrs von der Leyen convinced other European leaders, including Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron, to adopt an EU-wide policy to avoid so-called “vaccine nationalism”.
