"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."

Many A Slip 'Tween Cup & Lip


Is the msm coming clean with the public at last?  See EU's diplomatic corps takes shape and  ACPO & the EU.

The Daily Telegraph today has a story about the EU's plans to be a 'global power'.
"Confidential negotiations on how to implement the Lisbon Treaty have produced proposals to allow the EU to negotiate treaties and even open embassies across the world.

A letter conferring a full "legal personality" for the Union has been drafted in order for a new European diplomatic service to be recognised as fully fledged negotiators by international bodies and all non-EU countries."
I suppose this is one of the small, tedious details that the leaders don't like to bother us with but now the Lisbon Treaty is on course again they're rushing things through and being slapdash.  More documents also seem to be being leaked these days showing that there's no longer the watertight security they once had.  There's another old saying they'd do well to remember:  More haste, less speed.

  1. Dammit! Just lost another long comment. That makes 3, recently, on your page, GV.

    What happens is when you press the 'Post Comment' and then fill in the word verification, as you are about to accept, the page jumps so you end up clicking 'Newer Post'. this jumps to another page and the comment is lost.

    I don't know why your page jumps like this.

    Whinge over :)
