On Sunday, the European Parliament will be transformed into a big media hub where around 1,300 journalists will follow and report from the elections.
“The media interest for these elections has been much higher than for previous elections. We never had so many journalists registered for the election night. This clearly demonstrates the growing importance of this trans-national democratic exercise, which is unique in the world” said Jaume Duch, spokesperson of the European Parliament mentioning also the more than 200 journalists coming from non-EU countries, including 54 from the US and 21 from Japan and 20 from China.
The Appearance of Democracy must be seen to be done?
Of the almost 1300 journalists to be present:
- 770 TV journalists representing 195 TV stations
- 260 journalists from print and online outlets
- 170 press agency reporters and
- 70 radio journalists
Stand up stage in the back of the hemicycle: 420m² ( 3 levels )
90 broadband connections (10MB) for broadcast transmission
160 analogue lines for audio communication
64 trucks registered for the parking area to load/unload material
One suspects that the metrics of the hardware and personnel are pretty much as close to facts as will appear in the news feeds and earnest pieces to camera emanating from the Standup Boxes.
So very little has changed since 2016, I think the prelim or predicate in the article by Yannis nails the reasons why.” The process any member state must follow to exit the EU is governed by Article 50 of the bloc’s Lisbon Treaty, which, ironically, was authored by a British diplomat keen to deter exits from the EU. ”
The EU has hardened its stance on Federalism of a very curious sort More Brussels and less Europe federalism with an ECB and Commission that simply does not allow subsidiarity in questions of monetary policy which is causing the French and Italian problems going on at the moment for which Mr Macron and Mssrs Tusk and Junker seem so blissfully in denial of. Karl Bildt was prescient in these pages here https://www.project-syndicate.org/commentary/remaking-post-brexit-european-union-by-carl-bildt-2016-07# on these questions more generally.
The importance of Subsidiarity and the competencies of the commission are highlighted in this blog.
Another problem is the question of EU military unification a process which has continued under the radar of the Brexit Fuss. https://twitter.com/PMotels/status/1085107914216480768
So its as we were. Democracy Unfolded Emergent Reality of Brexit. (a poem)
SO LITTLE HAS CHANGED. HAS EVERYTHING CHANGED?

Hierarchy and Fascism – How the Ruling Few are Destroying Democracy

Most people of course will recite the “life liberty and the pursuit of happiness” when asked what they recall of the document but mine would be the lines that follow:
“That to secure these rights governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”
This says everything. Our rights are unalienable. And the only purpose of government is to secure these rights.
So why is it, how is it, that government is the very thing which we find ourselves defending against its tyranny?
I’ve tweeted this previously and make no apologies for doing so today, or tomorrow, the day after that and every day from then on until the result of the referendum is respected. A reminder that #17.4millionbetrayed

There is now evidence that the EU (via companies it funds) have donated to Remain campaigns in the following;
1. EU referendum.
2. 2017 General Election.
How long until the evidence shows the interference in these EU elections? 6/
Oh well, it’s Sunday. Today we get to see the results, the complaints it wasn’t a fair vote etc… basically broken down into the following 3 traditions of those that lose in a democratic vote these days;
1. Call the other side cheats and say that they didn’t follow the rules.
2. Organise a protest (Monday obviously) to demand the vote is ignored and the losing side’s decision is implemented.
3. Ignore all implications of the vote and try and pass the reason of the vote onto another area of policy “they only voted “x” because of Austerity”
Hello the unroll you asked for: Thread by @peter25674: “I really do get annoyed when any remain voter talks about funding. People’s Vote declared one donation during the 2017 g […]” https://t.co/Ey5vBN7BlS

WHERE THE HELL ARE WE AND WHO? WTF, ARE WE THERE YET?
Are we there yet? insert, Churchills this is the end of the beginning speech here.
Misrepresenting what I have said, and resorting to pure imaginings to set up straw men are not mere exaggerations, they are dishonest and have not clarified anything.
ELECTION 2017 IN APHORISMS, “EVENTS DEAR BOY EVENTS”.
5 thoughts on ““As X famously observed . . .”,A big tweet from a “twattering” class, Foghorns, Loudhailers, echo chambers and Milkshakes. Rinse and Repeat! Aphorisms, Uk EU Elections 2019 even less relevant than the EU Eu Elections 2019 .”
