Tony Blair: spineless fucking idiot

Via the Serf, the EU Budget has been agreed, and Tony has given away more of our money in return for precisely fuck-all.
Under the compromise, EU spending in 2007-2013 will not rise above 1.045 percent (€862.4 billion) of the union's gross income; the UK will give €10.5 billion off its rebate; there is no commitment to reform either the UK rebate or the common agricultural policy (CAP) before 2013.

So Tony has given away another £7.1 billion quid (not budgeted for by our increasingly-under-pressure Cyclopean Chancellor) in return for absolutely no commitment over the CAP.
"Britain's strong relationship with the new countries has been safeguarded", Mr Blair said, stressing that the UK rebate "remains in full" as far as CAP spending in the old member states is concerned.

Sorry, Tony: if you have just given away another £7.1 billion, how does the rebate remain "in full"? Oh, no, it remains in full for the older nations, but we are just refusing to claim it back from the Eastern Europeans. So, when you say, "remains in full", you actually mean that you have just given away more money. Nice one.
His old nemesis, French president Jacques Chirac, praised Mr Blair's "intelligence and courage", adding:

"We have a deal, a good deal for Europe, which provides sufficient means to finance its ambitions for the European Community and for enlargement."

Or rather: "Aaaahahahahahahaha! It worked! The stupid fucker has given more British money away and we, La Belle France, have had to concede precisely fuck all! Aaahahahahahahaha!"

I imagine that Blair is getting that nice warm feeling that we all like when someone congratulates us on a brave decision. He'll be tucked up in bed, with the humid glow of a job well done. After all, it's only our fucking money, isn't it, you traitorous piece of shite.
European Commission president Jose Manuel Barroso indicated the compromise was "not everything the commission wanted", but that "Europe avoided paralysis."

Translation: "We won't be able to double the Commission's pay next year, but we can probably give ourselves about 30%, so that's nice. Plus expenses, of course..."
Polish prime minister Kazimierz Marcinkiewicz punched his hand in the air and said "Yes! Yes! Yes!" in reaction to the agreement.

I'm not fucking surprised, frankly:
On top of this, Poland will be the largest beneficiary of EU cohesion spending, pocketing €59.7 billion, and the Netherlands got the €1 billion it wanted off its national contribution.

If I'd just been handed £40.5 billion of free cash, I'd be pretty fucking ecstatic too.

And the Dutch get to pay £0.7 billion less into the pot. I imagine that they are pretty happy. I don't really begrudge them that, given that they lost out every way that you look at it.
The Polish leader revealed that after all 25 EU members had signed up to the budget deal, German chancellor Angela Merkel took €100 million of aid designated for German regions and gave it to Poland.

"This is a beautiful, excellent gesture, hard to measure in zloty or euro because it is a gesture of solidarity", he indicated.

On the other hand of course, I think that €100 million can be measured quite well in Euros. It's 100 million of them.
Meanwhile, a tired set of 25 EU leaders climbed back into their limousines and headed home to begin the process of selling the new finance deal across Europe.

How nice that the tired leaders are able to travel in style. I imagine that there's a well-stocked bar in the limos and all.

Blair, you traitorous, spineless, evil, fascist scumbag piece of shit; there is nothing so bad that I do not wish it on you. Along with the rest of your fucking shitty government, with your attacks on freedom of speech and fuck-ups and persecutions of the innocent and the increasing move to a police state, I can't even wish cancer on you, you fuck. It would take you too long to die and it wouldn't be nearly painful enough.

Die, die, die; why won't you just fucking well die...

William Hague, the new Tory shadow foreign sec said it best:

"Seldom in the course of European negotiations has so much been surrendered for so little. It is amazing how the Government has moved miles while the French have barely yielded a centimetre."

Pity the Tories won't pledge to pull out of the EU full stop like they bloody well should.

Blair: what a gutless, spineless fascistic poltroon he really is.

The very model of a modern scientific man
