French surveys show many unhappy with European Union

Two French surveys on the European Union recently caught my eye. On May 5, 2014, a Viavoice survey for Libération revealed that nearly two-thirds of participants — 64% — think the EU geographical area is too large. They would prefer that the EU be comprised of the six founding member states or only those countries using the euro. Fifty-eight percent of the French participants believe that the EU imposes too…

There are some people out there who are obsessed by race and the determination that a lot of ordinary folk out there are actually open or closet racists, although to be honest I tend to find the biggest racists arouns are the anti-racists themselves. Still, there are some in politics, the MSM and the lunatic left who believe they can make the case that Ukip are a racist party… BBC.…

Violence against women is “an extensive human rights abuse” across Europe with one in three women reporting some form of physical or sexual abuse since the age of 15 and 8% suffering abuse in the last 12 months, according to the largest survey of its kind on the issue, published on Wednesday. And in some really odd places. Polly’s Scandi Heavens, mostly… The report ranks countries in order depending on…

It seems H G Wells was right. Over in France, the Eloi are starting to realise the Morlocks are among them: In recent years, with the EU’s relaxation of travel restrictions across mainland Europe, hundreds of thousands of Roma gipsies, mostly from Romania and Bulgaria, have travelled west in search of a better life. As many as half a million are estimated to be living in France, according to the…

…via Aditya Chakrabortty: It’s a good question. Don’t surveys repeatedly show Sweden as one of the happiest countries (certainly a damn sight cheerier than Britain)? Isn’t it famous for its equality, its warm welcome to immigrants? Whatever happened to Stockholm, capital of progressivism, the Mecca towards which Guardianistas face for their daily five minutes of mindfulness? We all know the cliches, but the reality is they no longer fit the…

….so why should anyone pay the slightest attention to your opinion? Ukip’s recent rise in popularity and the increased fervour behind talks of an EU referendum has placed the matter of the UK’s future within Europe at the forefront of the mainstream agenda. But when I read these headlines, something just doesn’t ring true. David Cameron’s claim that the people of Britain are unhappy with the relationship between Britain and…

“Save Me, EU, You’re My Only Hope!”

In the sickening seconds which followed, I learned that Christian and his friend had been jumping off the windowsill when a loop, which had formed in a venetian blind cord, caught around my son’s neck, leaving him hanging and unable to free himself. Ah. A familiar story. We’ve seen this before. Luckily, on this occasion, vigilance was rewarded, and the child suffered no lasting harm. So…was this woman unaware of…

…I mean, would anyone put it past them? The RSPCA has called for a general ban on keeping monkeys as pets after a case of animal neglect was heard by a Plymouth court. Yes indeed. Because this idiot bought an animal he was unable to care for properly (and was rightly punished for his cruelty by our judicial system) the RSPCA seeks to ensure that no-one else – whether able or…

A Derby training centre that helps unemployed people get work is being overwhelmed… Hurrah! The tough austerity regime is clearly working to force unemployed Britons into empl… Oh. Hang on. … by an influx of jobseekers from eastern Europe. Ummm. That’s a shocker. Mohammed Sharief, chief executive of Normanton-based Jobs Education and Training, said his staff were nearing “breaking point” because of the surge. And he said police have had…

Joshua Rozenburg whines about the prisoner vote issue, though not for the reasons you might expect: The prime minister’s announcement that “prisoners are not getting the vote under this government” is profoundly depressing. I say that not because I have a strong view on the policy itself. I would be perfectly content, for example, for judges to deprive prisoners of their voting rights in the same way they deprive prisoners…

…along with those slugs: The home-made solution contravenes regulations on pesticides, say officials.It means there is a chance – albeit a slim one – of vegetable growers receiving a visit and a heavy fine from the police. Has the ‘Mail’ gone mad? Chase bank robbers or catch burglars, or harass Mrs Miggins at No.25 on behalf of the EU? Hmmmm, it’s a tough decision… And just why has this edict…

According to his bio, Matthew Moran is ‘currently a Research Associate at King’s College London and his research looks at a range of social and political issues in France’. According to King’s College itself, he ‘is currently working on a MacArthur-funded postdoctoral project that explores the relationship between nuclear, nationalism and identity and how these issues impact on policy-making.’ So the perfect guy to report on the Amiens troubles, right?…

Cecilia Malmström is EU commissioner for home affairs. And she knows best. Don’t you dare try to claim she doesn’t: I will be discussing the common European asylum system with home affairs ministers from all EU countries on 8 March, and I’ll be looking to participants to step up their efforts, as negotiations have so far been too slow. So, you heard her! Step to, fellas, and step lively! If…

Deliver us from evil.

John Ward in his always lively, informative and entertaining blog, The Slog,  last evening stated “that he did not believe in the concept of evil”. I was born during World War Two and my own views on the existence of evil have fluctuated with the passing years. When very young and a regular church attender I had no doubts whatsoever about the existence of evil, the recent demise of Adolf…

The stitch-up fiscal union proposed by Merkozy (cf. Élysée Treaty) is merely a relaunch of the existing Stability and Growth Pact but this time with the teeth and claws necessary to force compliance by defaulters like France weak economies like Greece, nations coerced or conned into the Euro by Franco-Germany and their pals in the Euroclub of gravy-train-riding elites, against the interests of the peoples of Europe’s nations. Whether F.U. goes through…
