More EU waste.....

"EU officials funding the scheme say the pop world is dominated by Anglo-Saxon and American groups, making it difficult for musicians from smaller member states to make their mark."

If they're good enough, they'll break through without any help from Brussels!

The truth is that if we were not in the ECM we would be free to negotiate
our own trade deals with the rest of the world. The trade deals would be virtually
the same as though's that we have with the ECM. But these new trade deals with
the rest of the world would not be costing Britain £50 million a day as they
do as being a part member of the ECM. Leaving the ECM will not cost Britain in
lost markets or jobs for we have the ECM by their proverbial nuptials for they
need out markets desperately. Brussels is scared to the marrow that we might
leave for if we go then the ECM will collapse within a very short period of
time. If we hold a referendum Brussels's will pump millions and millions of
pounds into market advertising and backhanders to try and sway the vote their
way. If your a well known pop star, actor or one of those many useless playboy/
playgirls constantly doing the society rounds each could pick up several
hundred thousand pounds from Brussels if your prepared to say, "I think it is
better for us all if we vote to stay in"....kaching!! take the money and run.
Sirius, we each need to get publicly known about our anti-ECM stance. For if
the referendum finally comes about then Brussels will pay each of us at least
£1 million to change our stance and say that we should all vote to stay in.

A recognised threat

An unrecognised threat

Most, if not all terrorist groups have been declared iilegal organisations & according to the Yanks "War on Terror", are being sought out & destroyed.....

...but what about "legal terrorism?" Where's the war on those that wish to destoy the sovereignty of nations? Where are the elections to install those "legal terrorists" to rule?

If the recognised threat is real, where is the military manpower going to come from to combat that threat?

After 4 years of economic meltdown, just why are the Yanks now declaring that the UK should remain part of the EU? Just what's in it for them?

3rd round of cuts

Jonathan Beale BBC defence correspondent provides an interesting analsys: -

"But what happens when those niche capabilities are not enough? It's at that point that politicians tend to think about force, and the size of the Army would suddenly matter. "

As for our forces only providing logistics.......

....don't they have a cost to the taxpayer as well or will the EU give a rebate?

Amazing what can be achieved by supporting a political pressure group like UK Ind.
They now say that a vote for UK Ind is a vote for Labour. Never assume this to be
the case since Labour has now stated that they will not hold a referendum on the
ECM issue. Is Ed Miliband a Silly-Band here since there are just as many Labour
supporters as there are Conservative supporters who want a vote on this Euro
debacle. If these Labourites want a vote on Europe then they have no choice
other than to vote UK Ind or Conservative. So, in reality, has Silly-Band just
thrown out the door any chance of Labour winning the next General election????

No, they haven't thrown the baby out with the bath water just yet......

As with all 2 party countries, it's got to the point where they just play "musical chairs".

However, the time does come where the electorate finally wakes up & this is what a 3rd party has to concentrate on.

Here at least, it looks like the UKIP is doing just that & come 2015, the 2 main parties will wake up & find that they closed the stable door after the horse has bolted......

....What the UKIP has to do is to ensure that those muppets don't catch the horse!

Is a financial bomb going to off in Germany?

One for All?: German Court to Decide on EU Benefits Case

One of the problems that keeps coming up in the UK is the amount of social security payments made to immigrants. Because, supposedly all EU citizens can move from country to country and expect to get the same payments as the citizens of that country. It is part of the 1953 European Convention on Social and Medical Assistance.

But apparently Germany changed this in 2006 to stop immigrants from the new EU countries from claiming the benefits. They also made some more changes in 2010 to restrict payments to immigrants due to the financial crisis.

This is now being challenged and could end up with Germany having a massive bill, and presumably many more immigrants.

I've long held the view that benefits paid in Country_A to a citizen of Country_B should be back charged to country B.

(This applies equally to "migrant" workers who arrive in the UK or Germany and to the UK pensioners who arrive in Spain)


Edited - I should have added:
If the person doesn't qualify for a benefit in their country of origin then no benefit payable in their destination country. Also the benefit paid is capped at the rate payable in their home country.

It seems that Mario Draghi is a delusionist. He thinks God will resolve the Euro Crisis, either that or he's looking to become the new pope!

Pennies from Heaven

'The Federal Republic of Germany is in the deepest crisis in its history. The introduction of the euro was a fatal mistake that is threatening our prosperity. The old parties are grizzled and worn out. They are stubbornly refusing to admit their mistake and correct it.'

Sounds very familiar!

Extra! Extra!

The Demons are only sleeping

Us comoon as muck cashcows state anything like it & we're insulted, castigated, labelled "embittered", so Minister, any comments on one of your colleagues saying it?
