I did. German ministers can propose all they want, france isn’t going to give up its permanent members seat, and I doubt the permanent members would want to see one of their number end up having to consult 28 others before making a decision.
Well you’re wrong. Winning countries, yes, sort of, except neither France nor China could really be called that and UK did little more that survive. When the U.N. was being set-up France, USSR and UK represented empires which no longer exist (in fact France and UK’s were already falling part).
So, the population component that they represented has fallen away. USSR population also halved when its seat morphed into just Russia.
That might be your view, but you are in the minority when it comes to the Leave camp as a whole. “Spend the money on us!”. “Why should people like this [photo of miners from early 80s] have to work until they are 70 to support people like these [photo of Syrian refugees]”. “Send them back and give their council houses to hard working Brits!”.
Just a sample of messages I see every day on social media … and I’m not even signed up to any of the far-right Brexiteer ‘time to take back our empire’ fake news sites, but some of the people I grew up with obviously are and this is the type of things they often ‘share’.
A ‘typically’ ambiguous statement from THE management. Any decent reporter would have asked the question: …“What do you mean by Brexit uncertainty?”
Instead we get an asinine puff piece of inconsequential journalism…‘the oldest pasty maker’ closes a factory from the 1970’s…surely Cornish pasties must have been made by this company well before 1970!?
The ‘Brexit uncertainty’ is a pathetic excuse for THE management to make people redundant…why not admit the truth…they needed to streamline the business, reduce costs and close a ‘probably’ inefficient factory that was surplus to requirements.
Or does Brexit uncertainty really make fewer people eat Cornish pasties??..answers on a postcard to Greggs!!
It is not a privilege of the “EU” … quite how people manage to live within “EUROPE” or outside the “EU” must be a mystery to you.
Or are just bitter being trapped inside your little central (gas) heated shell?
Countries existed thousands of years before the “EU” yet now we can’t exist without their overriding control.
I have Greek citizenship and property… you think they’re going to kick people like me out???
Seriously … get a life and stop being so bitter !!
Becoming a Greek citizen for you was made a lot easier by being a national of an EU Member State though wasn’t it? You made use of that privilege.
And that ease is something you have chosen to deny to other UK citizens.
I suspect it may be a case of ‘revenge is a dish best served cold’…although more likely he thinks anything is better than having Corbyn in No. 10…even a Johnson government & Brexit…possibly a hard Brexit next December.
Corbyn was warned that he needed to do more on anti-semitism within Labour…it looks like some people think he didn’t go far enough and hold a bit of a grudge.
The Chief Rabbi’s intervention isn’t going to be a shock to most voters…but it could reinforce what they think of Corbyn…but I doubt it will have much of an impact on his ‘popularity’ numbers in the polls.
Its greatest impact will be within the Labour party hierarchy. I think it pretty much guarantees Corbyn will be gone if he doesn’t pull off a miracle in this election now and he’ll take many of his closest supporters with him, back to the political wilderness from whence they came.
The fact the Chief Rabbi can make an attack like this during an election just underlines the lack of leadership qualities of Corbyn.
