Cloud Cuckoo Land

There was an interesting little piece in the Times yesterday.

Our Glorious Leader, Dame Enda Average Kenny let slip a couple of home truths.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny said next month’s European elections were the most important for 40 years when he urged voters today to take account of Fine Gael’s alignment with the most powerful voting bloc in the European Parliament.

We have had many elections in the last 40 years so why should these be the most important?  Because [and I quote] "the parliament has unprecedented powers since the Lisbon Treaty took effect".  This indeed is true, though I would contend that there are a couple of precedents, namely Hitler's short lived control, and before that, the Romans had a fairly good grasp.

By urging the electorate to vote his shower in simply because they are part of "the most powerful voting bloc" shows the nature of the parliament – if you belong to a minority group you may as well pack your bags and go home [but don’t worry – they’ll still pay you along with all your generous allowances].  Any policies are decided by Merkel and her gang and that's it.  No argument.

Mr Kenny said a vote for Fine Gael candidates was a vote for MEPs with “real clout”, thanks to Fine Gael’s membership of the centre-right European Peoples’ Party group in the Parliament.

This group, which includes powerful figures such as German chancellor Angela Merkel, currently holds 275 of the 751 seats in the Parliament, more than any other.

So we are to have "real clout" are we?  751 seats and we account for 11?  That is some massive clout?  We have as much chance of changing policy as a rowing boat has of changing the course of a super-tanker.  Not that that has any significance anyway as the vast majority of the crap that comes out of Brussels is decided by the Unelected, with the MEPs having little or no say anyway.

Dame Enda really is delusional.  He thinks that because we were good little boys and rolled over for their Lisbon Treaty and bared our arses to be screwed by the troika that Brussels is going to look favourably on us?  He still hasn't realised that the only reason that Brussels stepped in when we went bust was to save their precious fucking Euro and that respect for Ireland didn't even appear on the list of reasons.  He still doesn't realise that Brussels is a dictatorship and that the upcoming elections are merely to give an illusion of democracy.

Dame Enda really is living in Cloud Cuckoo Land.

Hitler liked that expression too?

  1. Years ago, I had a friend who accidently struck it rich in property, among other things. He was a paper millionaire with an endless credit line. Having 'celebrated' with him, his various successes it began to become increasingly tedious after a while and as the nights he threw to celebrate his genius became more lavish, I was less and less inclined to attend. 

    This was because his conversation and attitude changed entirely. He began to explain the enjoyment to be had from five holidays a year to places I could neither pronounce nor afford. The pure luxuries he had around him were, in his opinion, the basics of life itself and he expressed shock that others like me were not using them as well. He had foreign nationals bringing up his two sons and he and his wife were free to indulge themselves on a whim. 

    Edna and his pals are the same story. When he imposes more cutbacks or taxes, they are utterly impersonal for him because they don't affect him. Life just keeps getting better for Edna and from his perspective, he cannot understand why we all do not celebrate his latest ruse in the EU to enrich himself and exert more of his ill-gotten powers. He's so egocentric, (like my mate), that Fine Gael successes in the EU dictatorship should be a source of joy for us little people because it would mean he's flying even higher, never mind that many of us are close to drowning.

     

    These individuals are called sociopaths and the definition of that is really worth looking up to see how out of kilter the whole charade had become.

    • Sociopath – "Antisocial personality disorder is a mental health condition in which a person has a long-term pattern of manipulating, exploiting, or violating the rights of others."  That fits rather nicely all right?

      You have summarised precisely what is wrong with this [and virtually every other] gubmint – a complete detachment from the lives of ordinary people.  They live in a bubble of their own self-importance and self-enrichment without a care for anyone but themselves.  Bastards.

  2. G.D and Mr Mallon,

    To the latter I address you properly sir,because in a world populated by snakes ye are the mongooses(had to check that) that restore an occasional semblance  of sanity.I forget who said  it,.but to paraphrase "any man that thinks he is worthy of running for election to a government should be automatically excluded from all ballots".I fear however ,to quote Joe Higgins"it's like playing handball against a haystack'.

  3. Sometimes I wish we had been colonised by the Roman empire. Our roads would be straight, even if potholed. We'd be well scrubbed and groomed. And we'd stab Caesar to death in the Senate if he didn't act for the good of the people.
