German economist serving as Federal spokesman for Alternative for Germany Jörg Meuthen raged at European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen. Mr Meuthen argued the European Union was trying to spend too much money as it recovered from coronavirus. He took aim at the EU’s climate goals and the amount of money used in the recovery packages for member states. 

He emphasised that this was taxpayer money and argued the EU should not be seeking more power to tell the people of Europe what to do. 

Mr Meuthen said: “For EU citizens we don’t want soothing words about the state of the union.

“If you look soberly at what we have done it is just an orgy of spending money.

“This green deal, fit for 55 and the recovery fund just means more centralisation and more absurd and pointless subsidization for more red tape in a democracy and telling people what to do.

“This is being done through the hard-earned money of the citizens through taxes and through the EU raising money on the markets.

“This is actually a defacto socialist approach but saving Europe is not enough you want to save the world as well.

“You want to save the world’s climate, what hubris.”
