Just One Big Happy Family

Friends Are God's Apology For Family

"A Danish MEP has sparked outrage in Brussels by saying that the Bulgarians and Romanians are 'less intelligent' that northern Europeans.

The outburst from Mogens Camre came during an EU debate on voting rules, under which the number of seats a country gets in the European Parliament are calculated according to population size.

He said it was 'unjust' that Bulgaria and Romania's combined population of 30million could outvote the Danes, Finns and Swedes who number 20million.

He told France 24 television later: 'When I look at the voting rules, I see that countries like Romania and Bulgaria have many more votes than Denmark and Sweden and Finland.

'I think that honestly speaking that we are more intelligent than they are.

'People who have not created healthy societies shouldn't be making decisions for other Europeans.' "

Altough I understand his point, these wreteched countries were allowed membership. I wonder how many directives Romania has in place? It should have been all of them on day 1.

Now we have a load of East European criminal gangs in our country to contend with.

It's understandable he feels so angry - a major point of the EUSSR project is to stop us proles being allowed to vote for what we want because we're too thick to understand. This is the same thing but on a smaller scale
