David Miliband is lying like a bastard, yet again, the four-eyed, seamy-mouthed twat.
Jonathan Stanley and a number of other correspondents have queried why we follow the EU rules, or rather why given that the rules can be suspended when human health is at risk we did not ban all imports from Hungary (for the record this was NOT what the National Farmers Union suggested last weekend). The simple answer is that there is no scientific advice that such a ban would be justified by reference to human health.

David, why don't you just admit that, under EU law, you cannot unilaterally ban Hungarian imports, even if you wanted to...?

"David Milliband is lying like a bastard"?

Now where have I seen that accusation levelled against someone recently? (That they are a liar)

More to the point where have I seen a scathing dencunciation of the individual for making the accusation (amongst others) of lying?

You're begining to sound like the description you applied to this same individual.

What was it now?

"a mad, stalking cunt who should fuck off and die rather than continue his petty and unpleasant hounding of people on the most spurious grounds possible."

Sounds like you're either morphing into the defunct operating system formaly known a Guido 1.0 or failing to follow your own advice.

My dear Eccles,

How lovely of you to join us. I have been having some long and entertaining email conversations with Manic and am considering his allegations.

However, my denunciation was not because of Tim's accusation but because of his constant hounding of someone in a somewhat childish way on a really rather unimportant point. Whatever I may think of Tim's other allegations, I still believe this to be true of this one and I have told him so during the course of our conversation.

But... if you think that Guido (a gossip-mongering blogger) is in any way even close to being as significant as Miliband (a government minister who has power over our lives), then you are King Fuckwit of the tribe of Fuckwits.

And there was I thinking your comments were based on a general matter of principle rather then being based on who it happened to be and how powerful you happen to percieve they are?

Still. I suppose everyone has their price?

You can easily tell when Millipede or any other labour minister is lying - their mouth moves...

Eccles,

I know that Miliband is lying to me.

Despite Tim's allegations, I still have not found evidence of lying from Guido. Nor have I found an intention to mislead from Dale.

Ah ha! That's where I'm going wrong.

I thought it was lying from Mr Dale:

and intention to mislead from the defunct operating system formally known as Guido 1.0.

Eccles,

You will have noticed my careful wording of "intention to mislead from Dale."

Look, I'm no supporter of this slimy Labour government, and certainly not of Miliband (!), but when you write this:

you cannot unilaterally ban Hungarian imports, even if you wanted to..,

I've no doubt this explains precisely why France didn't ban, unilaterally, all imports of British beef (then and now the best in the world, specially the Aberdeedn Angus variety) for several years in the wake of the BSE/CJD scares? Both the UK and France are, to the best of my recollection, members states of the EU [at present, at any rate - oh yes, I know UKIP want to modify that somewhat].

Bill,

You may also remember that France were heavily fined for continuing to ban British beef after the EU had lifted their ban, i.e. France were fined for acting unilaterally.

Well David Millipede may be the most repulsive creature alive, but where does teh epithet "four-eyed" come from? Does he wear specs? Or is he four-eyed by virtue of being two-faced?

Of course I remember that. Did they pay the fine? Did they lift their ban on our beef? No and no. It took quite a long time after that ruling for the ban to be lifted. When push comes to shove, EU member states (particularly the larger ones - I doubt if Luxembourg could act with such impunity) can act in their best national interests - France ALWAYS does this; it's time we started doing the same thing.

Bill,

Wouldn't that be lovely if we did.

However, what would be even more lovely is if we weren't obliged to ask some other organisation's damn permission to do what the hell we wanted with our own country.

There were negotiations about British beef, which is why we ended up with a second European Parliament in Strasbourg.

Mark Wadsworth said...

You still haven't explained David Millipede and "four-eyed".

Devil's Kitchen said...

Yes, he wears glasses, although I preferred your two-faced definition!
