Wake up, they are fascists

So, we already have the report trying to shut down blogs which ignore the obvious failings of the EU and drool over the prospect of an EU state, we have the President of the Parliament banning MEPs asking the Commission any question they like and now they are trying to link the NO vote in Ireland with a CIA plot.

Questions over the funding of the No campaign in Ireland on the Lisbon Treaty referendum
Raising a point of order, Co-President Daniel Cohn Bendit (Greens/EFA , DE) said: "Last weekend, the Irish press revealed that there possibly exists a link between the financers of the no-campaign in Ireland and the Pentagon as well as the CIA. This was a very interesting story and the explanation given was that Europe should not become too strong. I would ask the President to please clarify this matter and suggest that we also ask the Council as well as the Commission to inform us next time, because if this story turns out to be true it would be an interesting fact indeed, confirming what lies behind the €1.2 million which was used to finance the no-campaign in Ireland. I therefore would like to ask the President to please look into the matter so that we receive information and achieve transparency."

The whole story can be found here, but not for much longer because:
So long, farewell, auf weidersein, goodbyeee. Ladies and gentlemen, I am sad to announce that from henceforth England Expects shall be consigned to the dustbins of history. I say this with a heavy heart, but it is the case. And this is why.

Yesterday I was summoned by my Secretary General and informed that a formal complaint had been made about my posting on this blog. My activities were found to be in contravention of the Staff Code of Conduct

I am fucking furious. If you are, write to the man responsible one Harald Romer who I have never heard a nice word about at:

And whilst you're at it, copy it in to: hans-gert.poettering@europarl.europa.eu

If you don't, you'll be next. It really is that simple.

I'm Irish and I resent people who have made enormous profits from their US defence contracts spending these gains on influencing the political process in Ireland. It is simply wrong and I am delighted that this is being highlighted in Europe. I had many reservations about Lisbon, FYI.

What? You actually think that people who have made money outside the EU shouldn't be allowed to spend it in it?

Bearing in mind that the YES campaign was funded by tax payers money without asking them and you are questioning the propaganda of the EU and the Irish newspapers who are not interested in having a proper debate, but merely a one sided attack on people who have rather a fancy for democracy?

The YES campaign would have been more funded by defence contracts, PFI, licensed brothels than anything the NO side could come up with because it took money from everyone and spent it lying.

And they did lie, and when they lost they decided to lie even more. Which is why some MEPs are being sued for defamation.
