EU Political Thuggery

Postby miner » Fri May 05, 2017 12:01 pm

Having digested many of the reports of the events of the past week or two, and taken note of the quoted remarks of Juncker and his cronies (such as Verhofstadt, Barnier and Juncker's grandiosely-titled "Chief of Staff " Martin Selmayr, and his puppet Tusk) and having in particular watched the recording of the actual lecturing speech made by Michel Barnier, I am forced to conclude that what we are dealing with is nothing but a bunch of political thugs who have no serious intention of ever negotiating meaningfully with the UK and are simply intent on ensuring via their EUrothuggery that it would be impossible for Brexit to be concluded other than on the preposterous terms of these deluded thugs. They are hell-bent on waging an ongoing war of attrition against the UK.

Far from being the experienced and hard-nosed "negotiators" which they have been portrayed as, they are all jumped-up, pathetic, amateur players in their own, self-serving soap-opera who are completely out of their depth in dealing with the United Kingdom. The UK is not another Greece.

They are not negotiators at all, having been schooled in the Brussels-based School of EUrothuggery headed up nowadays by that ever-more-preposterous clown Juncker. They have become used to getting their way with other less-able countries either by their bullying, diktats and threats. Indeed, Juncker is on public record as having said that if things aren't going his way, then he is happy to result to lying until he gets his way.

As the highly-educated and astute former Finance Minister of Greece, Janis Varoufakis, has said, trying to negotiate with these people is a pointless exercise. I believe he is absolutely right.

EUthuggery? Lil' Juncker?!

Do you think the thug life chose him? I wonder if he says "And shit" at the end of each sentence...
God - "I have made Mankind!"
Angels - "You screwed up a perfectly good monkey is what you did. Look at it. It's got anxiety!"

€100bn Brexit bill is ‘legally impossible’ to enforce, European Commission’s own lawyers admit


Gosh, what a surprise!

Not that they really need them, when they have Jeremy Corbyn as their main vote-catcher!
