'European Parliament’s Liberals have promised to tear down walls, in an EU election campaign video depicting the group’s leader smashing through a border fence with his head.
“Europe’s future” rests on this May’s EU Parliament elections, and the choice voters will be given of either between “destroying” the bloc or “reforming” it, according to a new Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE) campaign video.
Declaring the elections a battle between“destroying” the bloc or “reforming” it, ALDE says “the choice is clear”, before graphics depicting the group’s leader, Guy Verhofstadt, breaking through a barbed wire-topped border wall with an enormous representation of his head, bursting onto the screen accompanying a promise to ‘tear walls down’ rather than build them.
“Europe is NOT the problem. It is the solution,” declares the video, which features cartoon hands grabbing at the EU flag.
Verhofstadt’s very public loathing of Hungary’s patriotic government, which slashed illegal immigration by more than 99 per cent after building a series of powerful border fences, was also apparent elsewhere in the video.
ALDE uses a photograph appearing to show far left protesters, along with newspaper headlines lambasting Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orbán as an “autocrat”, to represent a choice between “weakening freedom” and “strengthening” it at the elections.
Brexit pioneer Nigel Farage — another bête noire of the Belgian MEP, whose claims to represent freedom were contradicted somewhat by his recent calls for EU-wide censorship to purge the internet of so-called “hate” — also featured in the video, alongside flashing images of a motorway and a set of masked protesters, to represent the option of ‘destroying’ Europe.'
