    After reading through it all. I guessed it was written by Marine Le Pen (current leader of a hard right anti-immigrant and anti-EU political party in France).

    Had to click on the link to see for sure I was right and I was.

    Anyway I see this as part truth and part lie. Greece hates the Austerity program and Germany was/is pushing it.

    The lie part comes in when she tries to claim an elected member of the EU parliament has no "legitimacy" to vote on or enact a law that will impact other nations.

    The point of a congress or parliament is so that people from different areas are represented when laws are made that impact the whole.

    Additionally her talk of "Freedom" and "democracy" as well as sovereignty is actually a bit questionable when you consider her political party gets money from mafia-President Putin. The very current leader of Russia and a source of both creeping authoritarianism and centralization of power within it and some neighboring nations.

    Plus he is a fan of the Soviet Union Le Pen here brought up.
