Sigh. The laudable cry of sovereignty once more rings out as new eu elections are set to take place, in less than three months time.
It's always worrying listening to people who are more intent of talking over and interrupting people to ensure their point is heard when cameras are rolling. But who's interest does the multi-mill/billionaire business leaders serve, since very rarely does it appear to truly benefit the general populace? Oh right theirs. No doubt someone somewhere will believe its a microsoft or chinese or russian plot to derail and destabilise the eu powerhouse from the inside.
There must be many people in constituent countries who are able to name ten members of their parliamentary betters and at least five of their eu reps. Why, here in the uk there's jacqs, gord, vince, dave (at least six of them), and for the eu, there's... er.... where's me list...
But when the time arrives i'll have read the blurbs, gone with me guts and scratched my green name; so later down the line I can say "I was robbed" and "that was a bloody wasted vote" with a modicum of self-righteous contentedness.
Yippee! By 2018 every new built building in the eu will be required to produce as much energy as they consume. 2018? Nine years time? The rise in sea-level will probably have put paid to that, as the mad scramble to build-build-build to relocate coastline refugees picks up a soggy pace, and the last thing people will be thinking about is "does it have a pump!" Just give everyone a windmill-hat and solar powered kinetic boots.
