    Default Ireland takes EU Presidency - Europe Ignores

    Not to be too pedantic and petty but what the hell did we have a ceremony yesterday for to take the EU presidency over - if noone from Europe showed up?
    What did it achieve to ceremonise it? How much did this cost?

    Only Kill-more and Genny, a few Ministers, some soldiers and kids showed up.
    no one from Europe
    (i am only judging this on the Gallery in the indo - here Ireland takes EU presidency - Irish Independent Galleries)

    Here is a shot to look at and wonder...
    ...wonder who in their right mind would hand a presidency of anything over to these Goms.



    Maybe we can use the presidency to absolve our debt?
    Or assume Greeces for them?
    Who knows?

    To pacify some Delusions of Grander on the part of the government.

    Probably because many realise that Merkel is the real boss.....
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    The schoogirls look ok but the three teachers up front (one on a coat, one in a suit and a lady) look really stupid, like a secular version of Fr Ted. Wonder which of them does the tea.

    Lucinda looks like she'd make a haims of a cup of tea.
    Kenny looks like he makes Tea for a living?
    Gilmore looks like he'd find a way to get a government tea making contract for his wife.

    I reckon that the one on the left is not actually a teacher, but is responsible for mowing the lawn....

    Umm, it's pretty common for a country taking over the EU Presidency to do something internally to mark it - Denmark certainly did, I'm pretty sure Cyprus did.

    OP is basically an excuse for a bit of a whinge with nothing behind it.
