Former EU President Martin Schulz Demands 'United States of Europe' by 2025

The European Union should transform into a federal “United States of Europe” by 2025 says Martin Schulz, the former President of the European Parliament and contender for German Chancellor.

“I want there to be a constitutional treaty to create a federal Europe,” Mr. Schulz said Thursday during a speech at a Social Democratic Party of Germany (SDP) convention in Berlin.

According to the Financial Times, he insisted: “Such a constitutional treaty has to be written by a convention that includes civil society and the people.

“This constitutional treaty will then have to be put to the member-states and those that don’t approve it will automatically have to leave the EU,” Mr. Schulz explained.

The EU has already attempted to effectively implement a constitution several times, with treaties scrapping vetoes, creating new EU instructions, and taking control of policy areas.
