"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."

WHEDFU: Part Cinco Millones y Uno

EC/ECB/IMF now called 'The Troika'.
Experts from the European Commission, European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund descended upon Lisbon on Tuesday (12 April), set to begin rapid work on the technical details of the austerity and structural adjustment requirements of an estimated €80 billion bailout.
It's a private meeting and no information will be made public.

Member states of the EU should be allowed to decide for themselves whether they allow GMO crops or not.  So, wakey, wakey to Caroline Spelman, head of DEFRA under this Coalition government.

I think we all knew that THIS was on the cards: Green, green and more green - aka tax, tax and more tax.  Blackadder would be kicking himself:

  2. :-) The answer is in in the tags - 'what has Europe done for us?' It was the title of a post some time ago and it morphed into covering all EU round-ups.
