Watch This!..."that Idiot In Brussels"

Recommended Posts

At last, the gloves are off...and this on the BBC. Shurely Shome Mistake!

"An EU Commission spokesman stormed off Newsnight last night after being called an 'idiot' FIVE times, including once by presenter Jeremy Paxman.

Amadeu Altafaj-Tardio was desperately trying to defend the EU's handling of the sovereign debt crisis on the BBC's flagship news programme, insisting the Euro could survive.

But furious British newspaper columnist Peter Oborne said Mr Altafaj-Tardiowho - who works for the European Commissioner for Economic and Monetary Affairs - was in 'denial' about Greek debt. "

He then referred to him dismissively as 'that idiot in Brussels'. :lol:

Watch and enjoy...

Anyone know where I can get a free copy of the Guilty Men booklet? At the moment the CPS and Peter Oborne seem to want to sell hardcopies only.

Fair play though; back in the 1990s loads of people were saying we must join the euro or get left behind and sterling would get churned up in the wake of a mighty euro so it's right that those idiots get named and shamed now, if only to stop us believing anything they say in the future.

In response to Paxo's request to not call the guy an idiot, perhaps Obourne should have referred to him as "a dishonest liar" ........

........ he could probably proved it quite quickly from first principles.

edit to add:- the guy would have to to sue for defamation of character to prove he was not a liar, or accept the fact he is seen as a liar??
