No Comment does not mean “yes”

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

Federal Europe, that shining example of justice and democracy, really needs to buy a new dictionary.

In a vote on whether to impose tariffs on imported shoes, 9 member states voted in favour, 12 voted against and 4 abstained.  That’s a defeat right?  Of course not because in the European Federation an abstention is a “yes” vote on the basis that it’s not actually a “no” vote.

This voting system is the one that the European Federation wants to introduce for law and justice if member states are stupid enough to give up the veto.  How long will it before the justice system is changed to reflect this system?

“You are accused of criticising the European Federation on the 32nd of Octember, do you admit this heinous crime?”
“No comment.”
“Ha!  Guilty as charged.”
