Eurocrats: Express ‘Like UFO Mag, Dangerous For Mental Health’

Well the Express seems to have well and truly got under the skin of its Eurocrat foes this afternoon. The UK’s European Parliament Information Office has thrown its toys out of the pram quite spectacularly:

“Welcome to the brave new world of EU reporting at the Daily Express, where information is bad, transparency is dictatorship, civic rights are forms of oppression and checking facts makes you blind. We do not normally find it worthwhile challenging Daily Express euromyths. It would be like trying to engage UFO Magazine in scientific debate: a waste of time and dangerous for one’s mental health.  Moreover, we are used and resigned to the peculiar phenomenon of its journalists switching off all critical faculties when it comes to taking politically motivated anti-EU tirades as fact, then working backwards to try to fit the circumstances to the ‘crime’… Providing context and balance in a story is no longer the job of the Daily Express reporter, you see. If you want balance and context you have to knit it yourself. You’d be searching in vain for this context in today’s story, reader. You will not find it. What’s worse, your ignorance of the existence of sinister educational websites set up by the Houses of Parliament leaves your children vulnerable to the horror of ‘Soviet-style’ British propaganda right here right now, under your very nose and , needless to say, with your taxes.”

Of course the European Parliament UK Information Office is funded by the taxpayer, naturally…

          What the Eurocrats don’t seem to get is that they are not legitimate. No one asked for the EU, no one wants the EU, and given the chance, no one ever votes for the EU.

          The EU is a non-organisation full of people doing non-jobs for absolutely no reason anyone can understand.

          The Express on the other hand can prove its legitimacy very easily by pointing to the numbers of people who voluntarily buy it every day, and have done so for many decades.

          And as for the pathetic jibe at Parliament, well, in the UK we have a tradition of equality, fairness and representation going back to Saxon times. Eurocrats don’t understand that tradition of course, but we do, and that’s all that matters.

        In simple terms.. if we import more than we export we are are fucked, if we pay people who send half their money back home to whatever country they come from in the EU we are fucked as they don’t spend it here or save it in our banks, if overseas companies which do business here don’t pay their share of taxes we are fucked, becuse all they do is pay wages back into the economy and bank the profits offshore, no use just chucking money at the public sector because the money isn’t a long term solution, we saw what it did during Bliars time in number 10, add our welfare bill, foreign aid and our EU contributions to the defecit and we are well and truly buggered. The only way to get things working properly is to encourage wealthy investors into this country and hopefully create businesses which will employ and train workers and export goods.

    The Inside Tracker says:

    They’ve only just begun their main online propaganda and rebuttal offensive but their trolls have been operating spoilers on sites like the Spectator for several months. One of them ‘beat_the_bush’ mysteriously switched from hilariously bad English to perfect English in different comments and aggressively attacked any anti-EU comments in EU subject threads. This was a trial run. Expect more online propaganda, false flag work and the same undermining by relentless use of statistics that Labour trolls engage in.

    The pseudonym used is a thinly veiled reference to George Bush, e.g. part of the “progressive” global Common Purpose project using Moscow gold, anti-Republican/Reactionary and also to “beat the bushes” to flush out anti-EU elements.

    It is a twin-pronged offensive, to be combined with their media censorship project masked under the “plurality of press” banner and which is anything but.

    Dangerous people embalmed since the Cold War and now embarked on a very sinister project.

      Dear peasant,

      The English people DO NOT EXIST they have never existed, England is a land of immigrants, the English people are a fiction, there is no such nation as England. Any such talk of England and the English is antisocial propaganda and must be discouraged with re education and mass immigration so never again will the English people who have never existed by the way will try to dominate the world with their fish and chips and awful empire building and horrible treatment of everyone.

Stuff you..

      Casual Observer says:

      There hasn’t been any meaningful cut backs.

      Deficit reduction was mainly achieved by reducing public sector investment down to zero. So, departments were not meaningfully trimmed.

      Of the 370k jobs mentioned: 25% went from central government, 75% from local government.

      Over 2010-2012: # people working for government fell by 6.4%, public pay bill rose by 2% = 9% rise in earnings per head over two years, 3x OBR forecast in 2010.

      The reason for the increase in pay cost, in spite of pay freeze and reduction of headcount, is that ‘annual increments’ were still paid out and it would appear that the bulk of the 370k were below the average pay.

      http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/8717167/Automatic-pay-rises-for-public-sector-staff.html

      The annual increments are pay rises which are automatically awarded and determined on length of service. It may be that natural attrition is likely to kick in soon which is why they need to start hiring again.

      In terms of deficit and government spending reduction, unless the new public sector contracts are somewhat different, there has been a spectacular fail here to bring costs down now and moving forward.

New Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has big ambitions in his first meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu today:

“I came to bring this conflict to an end.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
