    So Dave can’t even get them to move on Juncker – and we’re supposed to believe his fantasy about being able to renegotiate real powers back from the EU. Laughable.

    No option but to vote for the people’s army.

    Seems a good time for a polished performer to step forward Tony. Have you met all of my rich friends? Remember how you got away with it for ten years and no one noticed, it was a classic step to then arrange for Mongo to take over just as the world collapsed.

    It’s all about timing.

    What is the Juncker’s position on TTIP? Would he roll over happily for the USSA, thereby treasonous at the supra-national level? Or is he hoping it’s done and dusted by the time he gets to wear the EUSSR laurels?

    Cameron is once again humiliated by his own pro EU zealotry – he has nothing to negotiate with & the EU knows it.

    UKIP is the magic bullet for Juncker.

    One might imagine he’d have such faith in his own personal ideology that he’d want to debate it at every opportunity. For if valid, that testing would confirm as much and serve to accelerate its universal acceptance. Only if personally unconvinced by its details, would silence concerning it be the best policy.

    Coming from a place that amounts to nothing much than a none country. I suppose those pro EUSSR may think he’s the man for the job. From this country’s point of view, the best that can be said is that Juncker may be a handy stick for UKIP to beat Conlibliebore with over the next 12 months and it puts Cameroon on the spot following his very recent remarks about the probable appointment of this unelected apparatchick. A phantom to haunt Camers to May 2015.

    This Spiegel article is worth reading to get a handle on what is going on:

    http://www.spiegel.de/international/europe/spiegel-editorial-argues-britain-must-determine-future-in-eu-a-972903.html#ref=rss

    The UK is not ready for Federalization, a fact understood by both parties. The attempt to undermine the democratic legitimacy of the EU President has, it would appear, crossed a line. For sure, Cameron is in no political position or otherwise to attempt to lead on the issue.

    On the other side of the coin, there appear to be some doubts about Juncker’s position:

    h**p://www.euractiv.com/sections/eu-elections-2014/merkel-eyes-imfs-lagarde-eu-commission-president-302578

    However, if Juncker / Schulz do not go forward, the entire democratic legitimacy of the EU President is trashed: Establishing that was a key objective of the EP2014 elections.

    Folk should be aware that there is a power grab by the EP from EUCO ongoing at present. This was apparently not foreseen by M’erkel et al. when L’isbon was drafted.

    This observer disagree’s with that notion.

    In order for the federalization process to continue it is important for the power held by EUCO to transition to the people. That will formally happen once a C’onsitution is drawn up.

    As part of the transition, power needs transfer from EUCO to the EP: This is why democratic legitimacy of the President is critical to establish: Member States, including G’ermany, need to recognize properly what is essentially a fledgling sovereign authority.

    The UK needs to be careful in its handling here as the UK will not be part of the Federal system.

    The reaction of European Citizens to this should set the tone of the future Federal system: Will it be open and democratic, like the US, or closed and autocratic, like R’ussia ?

    Vote UKIP :-D

The fact that everyone in the UK can see right through your facade is not important, you just carry on mate and take us into oblivion, we don’t mind

    The only option for the UK is invoking Lisbon Art 50.

    The problem Cameron has got is that he cannot express what the UK’s real interests are here, and thanks to S’nowden / R’ussia, Europe is aware of what will appear to be the most damaging of those.

    Mr Farage says:

    So by way of contrast, here’s what Labour have planned (so far) for next year’s Queen’s speech, after a Labour victory,with an overall majority, in May 2015:

    Banking bill – it’s been a while since Miliband has talked about the banking sector, but it’d be a first year priority for Miliband. That’ll mean breaking up banks to create competition in the banking sector – and reforms intended to boost lending and support small businesses.

    Make Work Pay bill – this one still needs some detail adding to it ( which we should get in the months ahead), but in short, this bill would see Labour legislating for a higher minimum wage (maybe even a statutory living wage?) and legislating on zero-hours contracts.

    Housing bill – Currently Labour is talking about building 200,000 homes a year by 2020. For me, that’s a little slow – we should be aiming to build a million homes over the next parliament and I’d expect Miliband to upgrade Labour’s offer on housing before the election. But it’s already pretty substantial, this bill would act on land banks, legislate for new garden cities, crack down on fees for private sector tenants and provide more stable and secure long-term rents for those in the private rented sector.

    Community bill – or to put it another way, the “taking back the high street” bill. This would give communities a say on payday lenders and betting shops on their high streets – thus reducing their volume and growth.

    Immigration bill – those listening to the Today Programme will have heard Angela Eagle state that Labour would legislate on immigration. Such a bill would seek to stop workers being undercut and ban recruitment agencies from only recruiting from overseas. This might also be where Miliband would want act to ensure immigrants learn English (and paying for their lessons, too).

    A new Scotland bill – this would enshrine the recommendations of Scottish Labour’s Devolution Commission, introducing a form of “Devo-Max” – obviously this is in the event of a No vote in this year’s referendum.

    Consumers’ bill – or perhaps more accurately, the energy prices bill. Labour’s big energy price freeze pledge would be enacted in the first Queen’s Speech

    Outlawing discrimination against armed forces bill – This would discrimination against members of the armed forces on the same footing as other forms of discrimination.

    Other priorities for Labour in the for at year of the next parliament that don’t necessarily need primary legislation, but which would be mentioned in the Queen’s Speech, include: The jobs guarantee, the return of the 50p Tax rate and the abolition of the Bedroom Tax.

    Hear ! Hear !

    I commend this to The House.

    Harpic says:

    Hmmm, this is very suspicious. Sounds like Labour are scared of what a Tory/UKIP coalition might do to the BBC, so they’re trying to pre-empt that with their own plans.

    Labour’s deputy leader, Harriet Harman, says the BBC should investigate alternatives to the licence fee, in case a better option exists. “The licence fee is a means to an end, it’s not an end to itself,” Ms Harman told Total Politics magazine. She said if there was “a better way” to secure independence from the government, “let’s hear about it”.

    Muslim students – do you want a sharia-compliant student loan?
    Since 2012’s changes to student loans, borrowing to go to university has involved a real interest rate (ie, above inflation). Some Muslim students believe this is religiously prohibited and thus are put off uni. The Govt is proposing a new (same cost) sharia-compliant scheme to sit alongside traditional loans.

    If they want to Make Work Pay, they could abolish employers’ NI. Forcing wages up without increasing the profitability of the work done will simply Make Work Very Unforthcoming, or add to the black economy, raising no taxes.

    Any fucking treaty can be torn into 10000 pieces and binned whether or not the other signatories agree. All we need is a leader with the guts to do it. Just tell Brussels that we are no longer playing or paying and we are walking away from all the horse manure which has been poured over this fair isle for the past 40 years. It won’t take long for them to notice the 55 million quid a day shortfall in the petty cash tin.

    We want our country back.

    Besides, I don’t recall being asked by Brown (who had already been voted out of office) or Millipede if I was happy for them to append their signatures to this comic.

    Does the bureaucracy in Brussels realise that most of these bags are manufactured on their patch? What happens when folk stop buying them in their hundreds of thousands?
    My mum had a cloth shopping bag when I was a kid which used to hold everything we had to haul home from the market. So not really a problem.

    It has become abundantly clear that the EU don’t want us as part of the club – so why don’t we just take our ball (and cash) back and clear off out of it?

    Charles de Gaulle tried to make that point all those years ago, but even back then we were infested with stubborn cloth-eared politicians.

    Time for a change.

    MrNedward says:

    There is NO democratic legitimacy in Juncker, or any of the other prospective commissioners being appointed to the role. The largest group does not automatically have their preferred candidate appointed. Worse than this is the fact that no group of the EU stood for election. The way groupings are decided is anti-democratic as they are self selecting after the election from people who were elected, but who may have been in completely different groups before the election.

    Nobody voted for the EPP and nobody voted for Juncker or Schultz.

    Claiming that there is any democratic legitimacy whatsoever to the appointment is pure lies aimed at a very gullible public.

  135. 135

    Neither EPP nor S&D got a majority, but the majority of people did vote for those EP Groups.

    Juncker / Schulz are in agreement, and Schulz has been most vocal about the protection of democracy and disrespecting the views of European Citizens.

    There is enough democratic legitimacy here for the time being: Attacking that legitimacy is in the best interests of no one, bar a few to the East.

  136. 136

    The UK, among others, is too risky to take forward into a Federal Union.

    This is clear and recognized by both sides.

    It is not a ‘club’ but a Federal Union that the UK should not remain part of. There is a very big difference between those two entities.

    MrNedward says:

    Looks like an embyronic communist manifesto to me. Lots more bullying government interference and crackdowns on legitimate businesses. More corporatism more state control, more corruption, massive increases in borrowing and taxes.

    More of the same from the last 10 years.

    Much of it will probably be illegal under EU law anyway, especially their immigration policy.

You don’t want to play because I’m too stupid to choose and only you can?….Spoil Sport! :(

    Necrophiliac Dating Agency-Just Where Do They Dig These People Up From? says:

    Very voluminous and insightful. Now tell me again, why didn’t Labour do that in their last THREE terms in Government? In fact, they seemed to do quite the opposite!…Now, if I may, just point out a few things.

    Labour, undemocratically, signed-off the Lisbon Treaty. They don’t GAF about Local People as they’ve, through unneeded mass immigration, allowed the Local Council Housing Stock to be ‘shared’ with people who have NO roots in the area (and more precisely, have NO RIGHT to even be there in the first place).

    As for your ‘Localism’ claims, is that why my Local Labour Council have endorsed Fracking without a SINGLE person being asked or told?

    As for the Bookies and Payday Lenders, you can do it Online, you don’t need a ‘shop’ to do that nowadays. And BTW, if someone genuinely needs one, you’ll remove that accessible choice from them. So it’s ‘get on a bus or go hungry’ (or go to a food bank which you also object to as well).

    As for your House Building claims, how many ‘DID’ you actually build in your glorious year’s of Power? In fact, I’ll chuck in Banking Regulation into this paragraph as well, as it is quite pertinent. (and BTW, if you say ‘we inherited it from the Tories’ I’ll tell your mum you whack-off in the bathroom all day).

    As for the discrimination against Squaddies. I take it that means Pubs and Clubs. Trust me, it’s their loss. If it’s regarding T.A. and deployment, then that is a Business matter.

    As for your minimum wage proposal, UKIP’s raising of the Income Tax Threshold so as to not include them at all is donkey’s old. YOU, Labour, Scrapped the 10p Tax Band (don’t even go into pensions).

    As for your Jobs Guarantee, Government don’t create jobs, businesses do. A fatal blind-spot in Socialist ‘Thinking’ (and oxymoron I know).

    House Building. Just where are all these New Houses going to be built? I know you band-around the term ‘land banks’ like they’re hidden off-shore, but they’re not. They are encroaching evermore so into green field areas (and you know it).

    I’m going to leave it at that for the moment as I’ve booked the Hop Scotch Court at 9 (you’ve got to make the most of these long evenings!). Have fun, and try not to let your Oxbridge Buffoons copy too much homework from UKIP in the meantime.

    I used to date a Resusci Anne, it lasted a few years, but she was a tart and was always off ‘kissing’ other people and stuff behind my back. She certainly wasn’t a ‘Bag for Life’. (Plus she had no legs, so Hill Walking, Ice Skating and all the usual ‘Couple’ things people like to do were out of the question)

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
