VIENNA (Reuters) - The European Union should consider regulating to stop member states from poaching each other’s doctors and other professionals, German Health Minister Jens Spahn said.
Spahn, a conservative heavyweight among Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats who recently lost a contest to become the party’s leader, described a knock-on effect of countries attracting doctors from neighboring countries, as is the case with Switzerland taking in German physicians.
“I can understand them. Switzerland is a beautiful country. But what is clear is that there is a shortage of these professionals in Germany. And then Polish doctors work in our country, and in turn there is a shortage of them in Poland,” he told Swiss tabloid Blick am Sonntag.
Exposes the sanctimonious humbug of the EU ruling cliqueIf you want evidence of how this whole EU project is for the benefit of Germany well here is an example.
The Germans have forever banged on about how the whole Freedom of Movement principle was of key importance and how the UK could not in any circumstance be allowed have any exemption about Freedom of Movement (with this insistence been one of the reasons there was a Brexit vote).
Well all of a sudden the Germans are deciding that maybe all Free movement is not a good thing at all, So it is suggesting that this freedom of movement principle should now be modified to cater for specific German concerns.
As has happened before the Germans have decided that the Goalposts need to be moved to suit German requirements despite specifically repeatedly dismissed other countries concerns with their diktat that the Goalposts were set in stone for all.
