Recommended Posts

Insane!

I think the EU symbol would look rather fetching on team jerseys tbh. Here's an example of it in action.

How long before the EU flag has to appear on all non Euro EU currencies?

The EU is fast morphing into a type of dictator who wants to see their picture everywhere.

In fact why not tattoo everyone with the EU flag?

The University of Northampton has been fined more than £56,000 - just because it didn't display the EU flag. It was revealed in Parliament that the university was fined £56,477 for not displaying the European logo on a board outside the college building.

Naughty naughty..... Love the way the EU wages it's hearts and minds campaign!!

Gaunt (used to listen to him on LBC) got some anti EU messages out last night on QT. Even raised some applause when he mentioned the referendum word!!

the fact is that it's even being discussed gives you an idea of where these socialist troughers want to take us.

More like National Socialists? The current mission statement at the EU is 'what we need is more Europe'. Any kind of local culture is dangerous. For example, about the crisis:

"We do need more Europe," Austrian Christian Democrat Othmar Karas said, agreeing with Economics Commissioner Olli Rehn's diagnosis that a convincing response to the crisis will have to be stronger and broader coordination of policies on the EU level.

The report also calls for the EU budget to be increased in such a way as to be able to accommodate the euro in a sustainable way, while citing studies that suggest the volume of the EU budget should be between 2.5-10 % of the EU's GDP.

The EU must deepen its integration or risk drifting apart and falling into an era of populism and nationalism.

You may think the soccer flag insane, but they're quite serious. The EU wants to leave its blue and gold mark on everything.

See other recent initiatives: the EU Quality Mark For Blogs

At the time, I dismissed it as the ramblings of a single dotty MEP. Not even the European Parliament, I thought, would actually try to censor the internet. I was wrong. We now have the full report and, sure enough, it wants to “clarify the status, legal or otherwise, of weblogs”, and to ensure their voluntary labelling according to the professional and financial responsibilities and interests of their authors and publishers”.

This is now a recurrent theme. Certain places in Europe will now be EU-approved, or not.

The EU executive on Wednesday (30 June) proposed the creation of a prestigious EU "Quality Tourism" label to reward the best tourist businesses, activities and destinations.

"We hope it would be sort of like a Michelin Star award, but for all types of tourist sites," commission spokesman Fabio Pirotta said.

The quality mark is to go considerably further than the bloc's European Destinations of Excellence scheme, to promote destinations that ensure social, cultural and environmental sustainability.

Oh, so not really about tourist sites at all.

Just scan the Europarl website for more examples. Note the increase in the budget to accommodate this putsch.

I was really pro-Europe when it started but this is simply control freakery, way beyond any remit. To be expected I suppose. Put a lot of politicians in a palace in Brussels and they want to rule the world.

Did you notice a few apprehensive looks from the panel too when he said it? I don't think we're far away now from many politicians openly becoming euro-sceptics and not just those from the back benches.

The EU project is out of control and we need to tell them where to stick it.

In reply to the OP, that is just crazy! I mean, who the hell do they think they are?!

All of this, 'full agreement' stuff is nonsense too. It may start out that way, but how long would it be before the fines came in?

I'm not sure whether this is the author's spin or as reflected in the proposal (probably the former, to be fair), but as for 'held in its territory' - whose territory!? It certainly doesn't belong to the EU!

aye,and when you consider how anti imperialist these guardianistas are....................but it's funny ,it's not an empire when they build it,it's a progressive social union.

Yes , like the war in Libya is not a war it's a "Kinetic Military Action".

Left wing thinking at it's finest.

Yes, I like standard phrase in EU reports that reads, quote, 'to ensure the voluntary adoption of . . .' Volunteer or else.

Legally, I imagine they will argue it was a precondition of the Grant. Though I don't see why funds, which originate from member states, should be hi-jacked for EU self-promotion.

By the way, the EU logo has also snuck onto every European vehicle's numberplate. Was this a directive, anyone?

No wonder Murdoch had such an easy time fooling everyone,as long as the lies fit what we want to believe the press is the bees knees.

The newspapers' claims are based on a draft report by Spanish MEP Santiago Fisas Ayxela, which, among other things: “Proposes that the European flag should be flown at major sports events held on EU territory and suggests that it should be displayed on the clothing of athletes from Member States".

A consistent claim made both in the Telegraph last week and in today's Express is that the plans are being “proposed by the European Parliament” and that “the European Parliament will today debate the idea”.

This paints a misleading picture. The proposal itself originates from a member of the Parliament's Culture and Education Committee, which itself has yet to approve the report before it goes before the Parliament. The Committee's own schedule suggests any adoption will not take place until 5 October, and the Parliament will not formally see the report until at least November.

So while the proposal originates from within a Parliament Committee (and so could be claimed to come from the Parliament), it is potentially misleading both to imply that the Parliament as a whole has proposed it and that the Parliament will be debating it today. Neither is the case.

This feeds into the second problematic claim in the article last week that the Committee has “already endorsed the plan”, and is “expected to back the idea next week” (referring to today's meeting), a claim reiterated on today's front page.

The procedures concerning the proposal involve an initial document, followed by a draft report that must then be 'presented', 'considered', 'amended' and finally 'adopted'. On the date of the Telegraph's article, the report had been only been drafted. In today's meeting, the report will be 'presented' and 'considered', but only by October will it have a chance of being 'adopted', and even then only after amendments have been made.

In addition, the initial document, submitted by the Commission, contains no mention of the flag proposal. So it seems spurious for the Telegraph to indicate both a sense of endorsement and a sense of imminence regarding the proposal based on what we know about EU procedure.

Of course athletes from across the UK could eventually be forced to display the flag on their clothing, but only after the proposal receives approval from the relevant committee (surviving amendments) and then passes through the other EU institutions. So while the Telegraph and the Express raise the possibility, they massively exaggerate the progress of the report and the support the proposal currently enjoys.

Once again it was in the Quail so must be true,they never lie, So why look for the the truth?

Simples the organisations lost part of their EU grants,so not fined just not given all the money. Like all investors public or private who want a mention when they stump up some cash bit like formula one,they like a logo or mention to show how kind and supportive they are,so do the EU for some reason.

The organisations that did not get all their pocket money failed to do this,and our glorious government told them they had been naughty and the money they were meant to get was going to other local organisations within the same region who knew how to show appreciation when given a freebie handout.

So no fines,no cost to the tax payer and our Civil Servants smacking bottoms not the EU.
