when Merkel picked the German Prime Minister of Poland to head the EU,
I guess that makes a better story than the truth...that everybody else voted for Tusk too. 27:1
...Despite its anger, however, Poland was left isolated as other countries including traditional central European allies lined up to back Tusk, a popular choice to guide the EU through difficult Brexit talks and tense debates on migration.
Remember Hungary? Steadfast friend and ally? They too voted for Tusk....
....Poland had hoped Hungary's Viktor Orbán would join them in opposing Tusk, but the Hungarian prime minister declined to desert an ally in the centre-right European People's party group.
But hey..."Merkel picked Tusk" sounds not as bad as that what really happened...how Poland was left alone pouting in it's corner.
PS: Oh I forgot...they ALL had probably only the best interests of Germany in their minds as they voted for Tusk...all 27 of them!
Oh man...we really did it this time...all of Europe loves us and wants to do us favours...Wow!!!
