Quoting: Michael Potter

Think you are looking at the wrong political body Scouse, they are just the pawns in the eu power  game. who are easily manipulated and coerced, or threatened by the eu bureaucrats,  to fall into line, a prime example is when Ireland voted no, they were summoned to Brussels told they had to have a yes vote, sweeteners were given to the main person opposing, and bingo they got the yes vote.  I think you could say "typical left wing tactics."

Now of course the big guns are turned on Britain because they dared to use their veto, it will be interesting to see what extremes they will go too, to ensure that our government also fall into line.

If you look at the make up of the European Parliament you will see there is a left leaning majority, not by many but nevertheless a majority.




Alright Michael, I think it’s safe to say there will be repercussions from Europe over Camerons walk out but to blame it on a ’left wing plot’ is well wide of the mark. The days of ’reds under the bed’ died with Senator McCarthy & is not missed. To say it’s a right wing plot would be equally wrong, it is a power play & most genned up nebbies are pointing at Sarkozy as the prime mover.


I’m afraid your claim of a left leaning EU parliament doesn’t stand up to scrutiny. MEPs sit in seven political blocks inside the Parliament these are;

European People’s Party (EPP) right of center with 265 MEPs

Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats (S&D) left of center with 184 MEPs

European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR) right wing with 56 MEPs

Greens/European Free Alliance (GRN/EFA) left wing with 55 MEPs

European United Left/Nordic Green Left (GUE) far left with 35 MEPs

Europe of Freedom and Democracy (EFD) far right with 27 MEPs

Non-Inscrits (NI) mainly far right 29 MEPs

By any way of counting the center/far right has a majority of eighty three.








A situation may be desperate but never serious

Germany, actually.

Given the amount of aid flown into Tempelhof in the Luftbrucke airlift and the successive aid with rebuild of the economy and infrastructure, they came out somewhat better than we did!
There again, is that not what our pathetic excuses for politicians do?Is that not their raison d’etre; to look good to the rest of mankind whilst delivering large doses of excrement to the idiots who voted them into power.......hhhmmm????

The UK kept thousands of German POWs back to aid with the rebuild of the country at the end of the war.

Even although the UK had signed the Geneva Convention they kept the POWs for three years for this rebuild aid.

No prizes for who got the best deal.

These men weren’t exactly behind wire, Murray. I saw a lot of them where I lived. They were out in the community working, and even socializing with the locals. Several applied to stay in the UK and took citizenship. This was at the same time our soldiers were in Germany and Poland clearing up the horrors of the death camps.
