Brussels is set to divert tens of billions of euros in EU cash away from patriotic eastern and central states under budget reform plans that would link funding to the bloc’s ‘values’ which include mass migration.

According to proposals seen by the Financial Times, the European Commission is planning to shift the criteria for distributing cohesion programme funds away from GDP per capita towards so-called ‘EU values’.

Under the post-2020 EU budget laid out in the draft document, the €350bn funding pot aimed at developing the bloc’s weaker economies in the bloc, appears under a new title of “cohesion and values”.

Shifting to a system in which the allocation of funds would be based on much broader criteria including migration, environmental policy, and youth unemployment, the changes would see huge sums of money diverted from nations in eastern Europe to the continent’s southern states, according to the Financial Times.

In addition to revamping the distribution of funds, Brussels also seeks to introduce new conditions on eligibility including compliance with the rule of law — an issue on which the commission has waged war on Poland over attempts to reform what the country’s conservative government says is a corrupt and politicised judiciary shaped by Communism.

Top Brussels figures have repeatedly insisted that importing huge numbers of third world migrants must be a core feature of belonging to the bloc, while German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron have both previously suggested the distribution of EU funds should be linked to the number of asylum seekers.

Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker declared last year that the union will be “lost” without a huge population transfer from Africa to Europe, during an interview in which he hinted there are plans for the two continents to merge in some way.

Meanwhile in January, migration commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos commented: “It is not economic problems that have endangered the European project, but the migration and refugee crises.”

Explaining that the resettling of third world populations throughout the continent is “directly linked to the principles and values on which Europe is based”, he blasted as “unacceptable” the idea that any nation could escape taking part in the EU migrant quota scheme.
