At least one medical practice in West London has reintroduced social distancing to reduce the risk of patients contracting Monkeypox. This, in spite of the fact that there are only nine cases so far in the U.K.

Simon Kuper's book about how a small group of 'Tory Toffs' who were at Oxford in the 1980s masterminded the Brexit project to reclaim their aristocratic birthright is highly entertaining, but not convincing.

Sarkozy visit aimed at subverting Irish democracy

category national | eu | news report author Monday July 21, 2008 21:14author by Des Dalton - Republican Sinn Feinauthor email saoirse at iol dot ieauthor address 223 Parnell St Dublin 1author phone 01 8729747 Report this post to the editors

Statement by Republican Sinn Féin Vice President Des Dalton

Republican Sinn Fein Vice President Des Dalton outlines RSF's opposition to the visit of French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

The visit of French President Nicolas Sarkozy to Dublin on July 21 is part of the campaign of the EU political elite to steamroll the Irish people into voting again on the rejected Lisbon Treaty/EU Constitution. The Franco/German governments as well as the heads of the various EU Institutions such as the President of the EU Parliament Hans-Gert Pöttering and the President of the EU Commission José Manuel Barroso since June 12 have shown only contempt for the democratic decision of the Irish people.

The big lie being put forward by the EU political establishment is that the EU can go ahead with the Lisbon Treaty despite or in defiance of its rejection in Ireland. In fact the 26-County administration could halt the ratification process by simply stating that the vote of the Irish people must be respected and cannot be overturned by a second referendum. Instead of defending the Irish people’s democratic decision the Dublin administration have lined up with the EU political establishment to try and create a 26/1 situation by the end of the year.

On June 12 the Irish people made it clear that they rejected the further tightening of the EU’s grip. They are not prepared to give over more power to an institution which they do not elect and which is not accountable to them. Three times in three years the people of three states have now said no to a militarised and unaccountable EU superstate.

This is the clear and unequivocal message which should be delivered to Nicolas Sarkozy on his visit to Dublin. In the past the Irish people welcomed the support of France in their struggle against British rule. Today we reject the efforts of Nicolas Sarkozy to subvert Irish democracy.

Media and FF sources are saying that the Taoiseach is furious that Monsieur Sarkozy is going over his head and talking directly to the No Campaigners.
Media and FF sources are saying that the Taoiseach is furious that Monsieur Sarkozy has the gall to go over his head and talk directly to the No Campaigners. This is seen by Mr. Cowan as a insult and implies that Mr. Cowan and indeed the Irish establishment cant be relied upon by Brussells to get the job done effectively. This undermines Mr. Cowan and most of the opposition are not too happy that the great unwashed are being consulted. This is simply not supposed to happen. Usually these things are dealt with by government to government and behind closed doors or at least by elected and therefore 'respectable' political parties. This explains why the government and its media has been griping about how badly the French Embassy has organised events when what they really mean is that Mr Sarkozy should not be meeting these groups at all or giving them any publicity whatsoever.

“Media and FF sources are saying…”

This is a load of hogwash probably dream up in a pub. How would “Brussels Insider” know in any case – this is the kind of fantasy one get after too many bevs on Rue de Charlemagne and long after the blanche has left common sense behind in Kitty’s. Anyway if one is going to opine on Cowen at least spell his name right – COWEN not Cowan. Brussels Insider indeed!

The correct spelling is Biffo! Anyway on to more to more important matters. Yesterdays charade clearly shows that the both the Irish and EU elites are still reeling from their lisbon hammering. However dont expect them to remain shell shocked for too much longer. The stakes are high and an empire awaits!

True - but their arses look rightly hooked to me, at least as things are at the present time.

I wonder what their next move will be?

Like all empires in the making they have a limited number of choices. They could go for repression! but it is still too early for that, it will come to that but they need the imperial mechanisms fully in place before they use this approach. That leaves only bribery which often works in these situations and finally trickery they could give a couple of sops such as 'allowing' us to 'keep' someone like harney for commissioner or a form of words on the more important issues such as neutrality and the protection of our Irish identity which they can revisit and overturn in a couple of years in their next treaty.

To siptu member:

There's certainly seems to be no shortage of funds for bribery (and lots of other nasty things besides) -- see at http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Brussels+Based+Slu...earch
