I'm going to squeam and squeam until I'm sick

Yesterday EU Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso turned up at a gathering of the political group leaders in Strasbourg to have what is described as an "Extraordinary exchange of views". They were talking about the Constitution amongst other things.
" I don't understand the nervous reactions (from the European Parliament's political leaders) to my statement that it is useless to return to the constitution. It is simply a fact, and you'd better recognize it. (On the 22nd Sept Barroso said " In the foreseeable future we will not have a constitution, that's obvious. I haven't come across any magic formulae that would bring it back to life.")
Let's first work, show that EU is necessary to get out of the crisis and then maybe we can come back with the constitution.
At this cold douche of common sense Hans Gert Poettering, the floundering and increasingly pointless Westphalian who heads up the EPP/ED to which the Tories are allied, reacted with truly heroic irrelevance and stupidity,
" No. The constitution has to be approved. We just have to wait for a new French president. (expected in 2009) Mr. Nicola (Minister of European affairs of Holland), told me that the constitution is not dead in the Netherlands. The Commission should give positive signals instead!"
He was backed up in this blind assault by his fellow Teuton and leader of the Socialist Group Martin "capo" Schulz,
" The referenda gave power to the Eurosceptics, and the fact that the "yes" side is doing nothing, makes the success of the "no" side. Where are those leaders who signed the treaty of Rome? If the national elites do not cooperate, there's no way we can succeed."
A better example of the new 'post-democratic' European elite's position could not be found. Here is the leader rejecting democracy because he finds the position of the people unpalatable.
Monica Frassoni, representing the Green group laid in,
" It is your (Barroso) fault! You said that the Constitution is dead, You are no leader. We don't have to act in the national capitals, but here, in Europe. Barroso let people think that we had given up on the constitution.

This is the authentic voice of your government. Worrying isn't it?

You wanna take another walk over to the duputy head of the commission's blog again.

She's on not much less than a full blown charge against 'nationalists' and euroskeptics..

Have said it before and will say it again. People elect the governments they deserve.

When even the civil servants are being reasonable calling it quits, charging around Parliament like a drunk elephant isn't only inelegant, it's ridiculous.

Arto Lahti presidentiksi 2006

Presidentinkanslia ei ole pannut .. eikä pane pahakseen vaikka totuus Tarja Halosesta leviää kuin Halosen vittu näissä taistoissa kuten Tehtaankadulla ja Moskovassa on jo käynyt (?)

Niin kauan kuin poliisissa ja syyttäjissä on neekerinperseennuolijoita ja sokeita vierasperäisten ihannoijia, kuten aikanaan espanjalaisia konkistareita ( conqistador ) vastaanottaneissa inkoissa, niin vaaramme on yhtä lähellä tuhoutua kuten kävi inkoille.

Arto Lahti on todellinen vaihtoehto verrattaessa matti vanhasen, tarja halosen, timo soinin linjattomuuteen ja vaikenemiseen niin sisä-, kuin ulkopolitiikassa

.. huomio: Ilman rihlakkoa tai mörssäriä voimme omaamme vaatia ja vielä paremmin Natojäsenyyden myötä.

Mitä ovat nämä pellet virallisissa ns. hallituspuolueissa ja eduskunnassa, muuta kuin pelkkiä ryssäläisiä pellejä, jotka juuri ja juuri oman nimensä oksentavat nippanappa oikein?

tarja halosen vaalisivut http://tarjahalonen.blogspot.com/ ei mitään uutta
matti vanhanen vaalisivut http://mattivanhanen.blogspot.com/ njet novi toze
timo soinin vaalisivut http://timosoini.blogspot.com/ pelkkää sianpaskaa

puhumattakaan ryssäläisiämme tukevaa Aatos Erkon sensuuripolitiikaa Isänmaamme etuja polkien http://helsingin-sanomat.blogspot.com/

Arto Lahti tarjoaa vaihtoehdottomuudelle vaihtoehtoja kyykistelyn sijaan
