        Now, no one look too closely into how Blair / Labour may have benefited from the various scams which were run under that program. Red hot.

        More developments from Germany: a close Merkel ally has called for an immediate British referendum on EU membership because Mr Cameron is unlikely to get the renegotiation he wants.

        Gunther Krichbaum, the chairman of the Bundestag’s powerful European committee, told German MPs that Britain should get on with a vote .

        “There’s no reason to delay the decision because all the arguments are on the table,” he said.

        “There is and can be no renegotiation in Cameron’s sense.”
        Mr Krichbaum also attacked the PM’s timing for a referendum, after 2015 during a period when the eurozone would trying to create “fiscal union”.

        “While others switch into fourth gear, Cameron goes into reverse gear,” he said.

          Cameron being shagged up the arse by Merkel? hmmm, interesting.

          Cameron is an amateur, so he better give in to her.

          “Regular readers may remember Joe’s online incarnation”…..Regular readers may not give a fuckity fuck more like !


          • EU? In out shake it all about says:

            More spurious names the better, giving influence to Joe Bloggs, I say.

            Sends MI5 round in circles and up their own bumhole, at least, bullying us. Ey?

      Wooden nickel meets real life says:

      I thought the world was going to fall apart and Britain would fall down a big hole if people mentioned removing or even talking about removing Britain from the clutches of the EU, still a nice day, snowing but we are still doing what we do, living, breathing and working .

        EU? In out shake it all about says:

        A lamb got it’s head trapped in a fence, but thankfully a passer-by noticed it bleating and struggling and released it, but not before she got her iphone out and took a pic.

        And that is the headlines news from my village, and now the weather…

          Norfolk 'n good says:

          Was it just rescued or did some village pervert have their wicked way before attempting the rescue?


          • EU? In out shake it all about says:

            Suspiciously, a couple of young lads with wellies on were seen walking away before, and the lamb did look seriously distressed, more than what you would think for getting it’s head stuck in the fence.

            Always more in a story than you think, ey? And it is heard that certain she did delete certain photos took before, when the sheep police turned up to investigate.


          • UKID says:

            Were they Ukippers then?


          • EU? In out shake it all about says:

            no, just average taffy bestials, as we over here all are, given half a chance.


          • EU? In out shake it all about says:

            By the way UKID, and my Taffy kindrid, I am only joshing, so a song for us, for the welsh red/white tudor rose, from the sixteenth century, when we ruled GB, unionised, wales and england then that is, Scots 1702 afterwards, and properly introduced sex, in a bed, sung in french then, by a welsh group now.

            We are clever buggers us welsh, but ok, through recent times, so we have been backwards in going forwards.

            Tell them Anne…


          • EU? In out shake it all about says:

            oops, the white paper was 1702, act in 1707 of course. Sorry scots,


          • EU? In out shake it all about says:

            Qui, Anne of a Thousand Days – Richard Burton should have an Oscar for that back in ’69, and not that yank vietnam supporting republican John Wayne for that western bullshit.


          • EU? In out shake it all about says:

            henry eight had syphils due to his philanderings, and that is why he went bonkers, and how so many of his children died, and some wives, with heads.

            Lizzy One from Anne’s loins was a marvellous exception, scatter gun of health.


          • EU? In out shake it all about says:

            Anyone been to Hever Castle in Kent? It is home from home for us welsh crachach perverts – young home of Anne bach, Bolyne, shagging english horsey ladies.

    Vote UKIP says:

    Clegg the Smeg says that it is not in our nation’s interest to have a referendum on Europe. But surely it is exactly in our nation’s interest to untie ourselves from a lumbering dinosaur with a dodgy leg. It is this sick dinosaur which has damaged the British economy just as much as the banks did. Outside the EU we are free to trade on our own terms with the rest of the world many parts of which are blooming with heath. And we won’t have to pay them £10billion a year for the privilege.

      Switzerland rejected full EU membership in a referendum about ten years ago and it’s doing well economically.

        Greece did the opposite and the opposite of Switzerland’s economy happened.

          The Swiss still have all the money hidden from dead nazzies, and making interest money on it. HONEST!

          JA! Honistich!


          • EU? In out shake it all about says:

            christ, sorry for that last vid… should come with an EU warning… asthma or not, laughing.


          • CarryHole is a Dismal Hunt says:

            Your insane EUSSR supporting ramblings are one of the best things for us EUSSRskeptics.

            You even support preventing people from working which you ludicrously think will lower unemployment!


          • EU? In out shake it all about says:

      Herman van Rumboy says:

      Your Country contributes a net £ 10,000,000,000,00 per annum to the EU. You don’t seriously think we’re going to allow you to walk out of this blessed Union without paying alimony, do you ??

      By the way, we’ll ensure that it’s an acrimonious separation.

        Separations are best if acrimonious, it reminds you why you’re better off apart.

          There are rules to leaving that could be quite severe in reality. That is why it should not be via a referendum. If Cameron just tried the negotiation for both staying and leaving we could leave or stay on good terms soon.

          However, why would anyone wait until the EU implodes. The world would be better off if there was a few calming influences around when the EU collapses.

          The USSR started the breakup after 58 years and was gone after another 11. The EU has a long history but the basis was put together in 1967. That makes it 51 years old in 5 years time.

          Every uncontrolled, unfettered large government has self-destructed in the past. If they did not we would have a world government by now.

          Also as communication and travel times have shrunk the time to destruction shrinks. It is better to get out now, and allow them to last a lot longer as a smaller system. A friendly exit for the good of the EU would be best for all.

        All I can say is that women like that kind of thing ergo it is not sensible
        Muzzies also enjoy a spot of genital mutilation more evidence, however,at least they are gender neutral on the issue

    Cheaper bio-ethanol would be better for the UK and other countries having issues with austerity:


    Looks like EU doesn’t like cheap fuel. And we are not having a referendum because ?

      EU Watch says:

      And the Ch!nese are figuring out:

      2 million vacances + 20% under 25 unemployment = Screwed education system

      – On balance maybe not fair as it assumes the job vacancies are real, but they may have a point.

      SP4BS says:

      “Cheap bioethanol” means pouring money into farmer’s pockets.

      Having read the story it seems that the EU has more sense than the USA. wow.

        Polly Pot says:

        Bi ethanol is the greenest green dream.

        it ticks all the greeny boxes.

        Its subsidy heavy and forces UP both food and fuel prices, whilst restricting the spread of that wicked, life saving, GM foodstuffs. it makes the poor poorer and the metropolitan chatterati smugly satisfied.

        I bathe in bio fuel its soooooo green.


      • 87
        EU Watch says:

        Would have been better to go to WTO on this one, otherwise all the EU have done is reinforced one of the component costs of fuel across the EZ and US exports will be redirected else where. This could lead to some reciprocal action which would be much more damaging.

        Suspect further that the odd subsidy the US are paying in this case may become evident in other areas as they attempt to regain their export markets.

        There are other reasons as well that the US may have wanted to undercut other producers in order to put them out of business. Production of ethanol in Asia to meet this demand has led to the destruction of much rain forest and turned land previously used for food production over to fuel production. Some of the effects of this are starting to be felt right now.
