The Germans treat us like adults, and we don’t like it.

Posted by Jason O on Mar 20, 2009 in Irish Politics, Lisbon Treaty

A friend tells us a home truth.

There’s a tendency amongst the anti-Lisbon crowd to regard anyone who tells a negative home truth as a “bully.” The German Ambassador to Ireland’s recent remarks here are statements of the bleeding obvious to anyone who bothers to inform themselves about the EU.

 But what the ambassador said remains what it is. An accurate and truthful assessment of our situation.  

Ambassador Christian Pauls is telling the truth. LIbertas don’t like that, and Libertas are probably being quite savvy in recognising that Irish people sometimes don’t like hearing the truth. Indeed, we have been brought up on a generation of politicians who have point blank refused to confront us with reality, hence our shock over the current economic crisis.

A Curious DVD I watched: The Trojan Horse.

Posted by Jason O on Mar 20, 2009 in Movies/TV/DVDs

The Trojan Horse [DVD]I’m not really recommending this, as it was a bit slow and struggling to be profound, but worth mentioning because of  its curiousity value.

Basically, The Trojan Horse is a Canadian mini-series starring (And co-written by) Paul Gross, whom you may remember as the eccentric mountie Benton Fraser in the tv series “Due South” . It’s about a joint Canadian-EU plot to rig a US presidential election.

The series is actually a sequel to a series called “H20″ where Gross played the Canadian prime minister dealing with a mysterious conspiracy.

The conclusion is unusual, and based on a real life event, but what is notable is a rant Gross gives during the movie about his vision of the world. Curiously, it is worded in such a way that would shock most Americans, yet as a European sounded quite reasonable!

Only available on region two with Dutch subtitles at the moment.
