Comments on: A camel for EU president? http://blogs.reuters.com/commentaries/2009/11/12/a-camel-for-eu-president/ Now raising intellectual capital Sun, 08 Nov 2015 08:31:30 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Robert Pratt http://blogs.reuters.com/commentaries/2009/11/12/a-camel-for-eu-president/comment-page-1/#comment-6738 Mon, 16 Nov 2009 20:09:05 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/commentaries/?p=5295#comment-6738 Perfect! More sinecures for second-rate politicians who will no doubt influence little the institutionalized waste and back-door corruption that lives like a cancer in Brussels.

Of course, this is just a small, incremental step to unifying Europe as a peaceful zone. One is too tired to think about conflict after perusing the library of trade, zone, tariff, standards and other restrictions currently in use in the EU.

The EU is itself a dromedary.

The bible is somewhat a step ahead of crystal balls. History moves on towards its climax.

They have awarded themselves tremendous power over all aspects of life down to the micro-level and yet are defined by shallow and rank amateur thinking and an almost total lack of understanding in almost all areas ( science, technology and innovation as example). How can a society run by such people hope to move significantly forward? It’s not possible as it’s equivalent to taking someone off the streets with no expertise to run a large and complex company (with the exception that the state is even larger and more complex).

The fact that you call him “leader of the European Union” shows your complete lack of understanding of what the role means.

“The president is not granted any formal power, but he would “chair and drive forward the work of the European Council” and take part in the representation of the common foreign policy of the EU on the world stage.”

It will be only fair play if someone else is nominated. If the had put Blair in, it would have been a slap in the face for the British people and would have alienated us even further from the EU ( as distinct to Europe).

This leader of the European Union has a bible name “the Beast” or the “antichrist”
The stage is now being set for a European leader, we’re not sure who he is but we know that he will be a master deceiver. Sounds a bit like Tony Blair don’t you think?
