What next for the European Union

Post by Anonymous 1 »

Even the most loyal EU citizens know their leadership shat the bed this week. They had a crisis and they panicked. The EU will recover but we now know that if there is a crisis and they are still led by the current mob they will fall apart. It's a scary thought.

Boris just apologised for 100,000 covid deaths this week and you’re starting threads like this.

Hong Kong has had 187 deaths. So yeah. There is no accurate benchmark to measure one country against another so whilst I appreciate you've been simply dying to vent some frustration at the Brits, because, reasons, unless you can show a universal coefficient death barometer that every single country follows in an identical fashion you're just wasting oxygen.

Over to you on the sports desk, Brian.

Brits gonna brit, eh. UK disintegrating and they need to deflect. They may have left the EU but they ( and by they I mean the english and their welsh catamites) still desperately need to have the EU as a unifying big bad bogeyman. And so it goes, and so it goes.

Boris is a waste of space. If you look on the Boris thread I've said that consistently since this whole thing started. None of that detracts from what the EU have done. On this vaccine business the EU makes Boris look like a champion.
Are you not of the opinion that the wheels fell off this week as far as the EU are concerned ?

While I doubt it happens, if it did:

1.) It'd have to be another German because 1 commissioner/president per country rule, or
2.) Another commissioner takes her place and a German is appointed to fill that position
3.) Any President is probably from the center right EPP umbrella group

If anything it shows that individual countries, Ireland in this case, can get the Commission to back down quickly when it over reaches.

Firstly, it's not like Ireland was covered in gold and precious minerals., secondly the resentment you harbour is akin to the Germans resentment in 1930's Germany and Mick's post really isn't that too far off the mark, it's certainly not Trump Crazy compared to yours.

None of it would have been possible if we didn't have the right wood in our forests to build the best ships which gave us an edge in being one of the first to explore the new world, and profit it from it like any other fucker would have done. The 1500s to the 1900's wasn't some "equality for all" experience with yak milk lattes and lunchtime yoga if was avoiding being a victim......which is remarkably similar to how the entire human race has played the game since we started standing up so putting todays "you stole if from us" values is just pathetic nonsense. fudge me, you could have been colonised by the Spanish, there'd be next to fudge all left of you if that would have happened.

All im saying is it's easy to pontificate and speak in a superior fashion when you're rich as a result of plundering from colonies hence criticising former colonies indirectly benefiting from former colonial power's taxpayer money.

As Chipspike mentioned. We were on our bare bones after the second world war, utterly skint and only finished paying back our war debt a few years ago.

The ruling classes in the UK were c*unts to everyone, not just you guys, people in every corner of the UK suffered at their hands until we started to get workers rights and fight back.
