      Well yes and the fact that the EU Ombudsman said of Selmayr's appointment "‘Mr Selmayr’s appointment did not follow EU law, in letter or spirit, and did not follow the Commission’s own rules.’"

      Which rather contradicts your "The EU has approached it from a legal point of view. Since it's how the EU as an institution operates."

        I suppose the rest of the codswallop is just accepted as a given!

        I wouldn't worry. There could always be a second one of these

          Aaawww, there we go again with that unearned superiority complex.

          That part of the family were landowners in Somerset and headed for Sth Australia - a colony with no convicts. Smart, brave & tough.

            Well...
            you would say that...
            wouldn't you?


            The long toll of the brave
            Is not lost in darkness
            Over the fruitful earth
            And athwart the seas
            Hath passed the light of noble deeds
            Unquenchable forever.

              Aren't you the guy who once boasted about parading around in front of a group of Germans wearing a Spitfire t-shirt? Then you quote a mass murdering dictator approvingly.

              Yeah, definitely the guy to be passing judgement on others.

                I don't know the guy personally, but I'm fairly certain that he isn't after your job.
                So, relax.

                  So who's the mass murdering dictator?

                        Oh dear. How silly.

                        The reason the story stuck in my mind was that the person telling it seemed to think that wearing a Spitfire t-shirt in front of a group of Germans was some sort of achievement. Why he would think anyone would care was only slightly more odd than the obvious pride he had taken in doing it.

                          Dumb fk with the t-shirt. Only a Brit can connect that and if he knew what he was talking about it would have been a Hurricane. What's with you Brit's? So many wankers still fighting WWII while the rest of Europe and the World has moved on.

                            That old carrot eh? Do some research! You can also find discussion of Cromwell in Ireland elsewhere on this site.

                            I'll ask again! Is a Spitfire emblazoned T-shirt akin to a Nazi Swastika arm-band?

                            No! If he happened to be wearing a T-shirt, so what! That Von thought to feel smug at the situation means what? That he should feel ashamed? That he should have self-flagellated? Nah! He enjoyed the moment and good on him.



                            Why he would think anyone would care was only slightly more odd than the obvious pride he had taken in doing it.
                            You are clearly one that cares. Perhaps snowflakes should show some pride instead of acting like skulking victims.

                              • Die meisten Studien zu den wirtschaftlichen Effekten des Brexit gehen davon und

                                kommen zu dem Ergebnis, dass der harte Brexit für das UK sehr viel teurer ist als für die

                                EU. Aber eine solche Strategie wäre für London kaum rational und technisch vielleicht

                                gar nicht machbar. Mit einer »Hard-but-Smart«-Strategie hingegen würde das UK unilateral

                                auf alle neuen Barrieren verzichten.
                                "Hard but smart" according to Felbermayr, apparently involves Britain unilaterally giving up all border controls.

                                A true "open borders" policy - I doubt that'll appeal to the original supporters of Brexit ?

                                Gaining control of your borders was allegedly one of the prime motives for Brexit no ?
