"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

A video promoting the EU from the Young European Federalists (yes, really) - and guess who's paid for it? It's hardly going to win a prize at Cannes but it may raise a smile if you can bear to come out from behind the sofa. Peering between your fingers is advised though. This, or something very similar, did the rounds the last time the Irish had a referendum so let's hope they don't have a third; I can't take any more productions like this:

  5. Real songwriters would throw a word like subsidiarity in the fucking bin, GV!
    Here's hoping the new poll that says the Irish "no" vote has surged to 59% is correct - they were only out by half a percent last time.

  6. It has the same feeling as pop Christian evangelism, only no young priest with long hair strumming a guitar.

    I'd rather watch Prescott disco dancing and I thought I'd eat my shorts before I'd watch that again.

  7. Sue the EU is a project designed by and for corporate interests - i.e., capitalism. Shouldn't you be in there singing along?

    Boak inducing.

  8. The EU is designed to make those in power (ie., corporations and politicians) rich and those that struggle with their trying to run their own little companies and those who otherwise work for a living poorer. That's not capitalism, that's Communism!
