Infowars Ireland protests EU Consumer Commissioner in Galway

category galway | eu | news report author Friday August 28, 2009 14:24author by Desso Report this post to the editors

Members from Infowars Ireland joined forces with women from the No-To-Lisbon coalition in Galway today (Thur, 27 Aug, 2009) to protest the arrival of EU Consumer Commissioner Meglena Kuneva, at the Meyrick hotel in the city centre.

Members from Infowars Ireland joined forces with women from the No-To-Lisbon coalition in Galway today (Thur, 27 Aug, 2009) to protest the arrival of EU Consumer Commissioner Meglena Kuneva, at the Meyrick hotel in the city centre.

The event at the Meyrick hotel was promoted as a “Women for Lisbon” gathering, but the brood of women assembled in the upstairs ballroom gave the impression they were awaiting the arrival of a reincarnated Yves Saint Laurent rather than the harbinger of a reincarnated treaty which the Irish people thought they had buried in June 2008.

Mayor of Galway Declan McDonnell was one of the first officials to arrive and assume his position on the hotel steps – Commissioner Kuneva arrived soon afterwards and made her way to the hotel ballroom surrounded by her minions.

Details of a new EU initiative to ‘provide better protection’ for tourists was announced by Commissioner Kuneva, as expected, in what was a thinly veiled attempt to make EU bureaucracy appear to serve the public interest rather than the interests of the Euro-elite.

Did we really get everything from Europe?? Do you know the worth of the fish taken from Irish seas since we joined Europe, ye amadán... There is no Democrasy in this treaty, why do ya think we're voting on it again after it was rejected already by us and the French and the Dutch, and why do they not put it to referendum to all the people of Europe? Because itll be shot down! BUT THE HAND THAT FEEDS US KNOWS BETTER!!! amadán

Gordon Brown signed it in a room in Downing street on behalf of his fello countrymen. No cameras, no press, no hullabaloo, no opposition, no handshaking and photocalls......

Why??

Cos he was ashamed, he went into a quiet room and began the process of slowly removing the democratic process from thre British people by doing so......

The women for europe meeting was very interesting - a group of us attended and asked questions- politely! all relating only to the text of the Lisbon Treaty, and no one commissioner included could awnser them and they were fairly simple. The chair- Olive Braden responded to a question about Lisbon Militarisation and the arms trade by saying- 'That's not in the Treaty'... and the commisioner responded by saying conscription isn't in the treaty we were not to worry- when no one except herself had mentioned it. The commissioner also made several erroneous comments about how the coallition of the willing that invaded Iraq could not happen once the treaty was passed as there would be a cohesive foreign policy- at EU level, either ignoring or displaying her ignorance about the provisions where states who wish to see their foreign policy enacted through NATO may do so by forming subgroups and cooperating in that fashion. I am sure that despite the sarky comments on the protest ect that Women for Europe will at least buy themselves a few female experts before they venture out in public again.
