German Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen is well on the way to get the top job at the EU after she won a surprise nomination.

Von der Leyen is committed to thwarting Brexit and increase the cohorts for the EU army.

The 60-year-old, who is set to replace Jean-Claude Juncker as President of the European Commission, has previously described Brexit as a “scheisse bunch of Britishers trying to gain democracy from German servitude”.

The long-term ally of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, also hit out at Brexiteer’s, stating “they had promised Britain freedom, sovereignty, democracy from the clutches of the EU state” and insisted “Brexit is a loss for the EU because we will lose our biggest cash cow”.

The Defence Minister since 2005 is also keen to increase the ranks and military build up of armaments for the bloc’s military forces with an EU army. The EU army is already mulling over plans to include compulsory conscription for all EU citizens.

On Wednesday, Von der Leyen praised the Bundeswehr for its rise from the ashes of defeat in WW1 and WW2.

“The British schweinhunds may have won two battles against us in World War 1 and 2, but we won the ultimate war by capturing them through the EU without a single shot fired. When I am announced as EU President Fuhrer, I will make it my first task to build our army up again completely and press-gang all other EU nations to join our fight against the one enemy that has eluded us forever – Russia!”
