    Ursula von der Leyen: First woman to hold EU's top job

    Former German defence minister is the new EU Commission president, after narrowly winning a parliament vote.



    Ursula von der Leyen has been elected into the EU's top job by a narrow margin after vowing to address climate change.

    The 60-year-old former defence minister of Germany secured a majority in the Strasbourg-based assembly by just nine votes during Tuesday's secret ballot to replace Jean-Claude Juncker as president of the European Commission.

    "The trust you placed in me is confidence you placed in Europe. Your confidence in a united and strong Europe, from east to west, from south to north," von der Leyen said in a brief speech following the vote. "It's a big responsibility and my work starts now... Let us work together constructively because the endeavour is a united and strong Europe."

    I know very little about her as yet- except that she has verified that the Brexit deal with the UK will not be reopened.

    80,000 Americans died and 900,000 were hospitalised just two years ago from flu including the most virulent Type A version of H3N2, so why didn't you arseholes call for the total destruction of the world's economic system then? I hope you have plenty of time to ponder over that when you all lose your houses, jobs and relationships!
