Today's Euro follies....

Yesterday "MEPs debated the fight against terrorism with statements from the Commission and the Council". Sounds thrilling does it not, but I have waded through the transcript and offer up the following:

An exciting new slur from the Left:

Jan Marinus Wiersma(NL) for the PES group that there should be co-operation at the EU level. It was paramount to tackle "recruitment and radicalisation and the combating of religious extreme right-wing groups" at the EU level.


And questions about Michael Cashman's command of the calendar need to be asked:

"Michael Cashman (PES,UK) welcomed the strategy review and tackling the roots of terrorism. Now above all, he stated, we need to act as 27 Member States, not separately, and act in conjunction with our allies, including the United States. The United States is not a problem. The attacks on the United States did not occur on September 11, they occurred before then, and an attack upon one is arguably an attack upon every single one of us".


If he is a fan of the Julian calendar, I suppose that makes sense, but I am not aware of his being a Greek Old Calendarist. And surely he will be drummed out of the Party of European Socialists (PES) for saying something about his Uncle Sam that in the language of the Left verges on high treason.
