The European Research Group.

The European Research Group.

I've been aware of this group for a while, but I hadn't really twigged to their significance. Nish Kumar puts it quite succinctly in the Mash Report (ERG bit starting at 14.10).

Self satisfied snidy sarcasm is not a good guide to anything.

It can be, if you look through it to the relevant points. Or do you dispute those? I confess I did not check the references.
But how can anything be a good guide to a thing that is so secretive? And how can it be as secretive as it manages when it is funded by our taxes?

But when it's all your politics has, it'll have to do.

Is this about the Freemasons again? They seem to be trying a bit of a PR job just lately.

It's all I've got in general, never mind politics.

I had a long chat once with a mason and a bottle of whisky. I never did work out if he was trying to recruit me, but I don't think people of my religion are allowed in... :?

But back on topic, no I'm not aware of any connection between the masons and the ERG, though I expect some of the members are members.
