Euroscepticism at its saddest.

Posted by Jason O on Jun 18, 2010 in British Politics, European Union

This from Tory website ConservativeHome. I don’t want to use the word pathetic, because I don’t mean to offend either the writer or the site, both of which I usually enjoy, but Jesus, it’s pretty sad to regard something like this as a victory. The fact that they even noticed this, which I, as a pro-European, wouldn’t have, is really just…I don’t know. You’d almost want to give them a hug and reassure them that it’s all going to be ok.

Fine Gael reveals itself.

Of all the people, this is the man equal to Angela Merkel and David Cameron, say FG.

We’ve learnt a lot about Fine Gael. Fine Gael have decided that he has the mettle and the intellect to negotiate one-on-one with Europe’s other leaders. They have decided that in this time of crisis, as the country faces its greatest challenges, Enda Kenny is the very best that Fine Gael has to offer. Enda Kenny will be the man to take the place of Eamonn De Valera, Sean Lemass, Garrett Fitzgerald and John Bruton, or as he can rightly call them, his peers. Of all the 4.2m people in the country, Fine Gael has decided that Enda Kenny is the man to lead our €150 billion economy out of the storm. Enda Kenny is the man to sit in the European Council and match the rest of Europe both intellectually and strategically. Enda Kenny, say FG, is the only person suitable to be Taoiseach.
