EU Leaders Confirm Their Incompetence

I would like to add my thanks to the Irish for showing their good sense; not only have they rejected this Constitution by any other name, they have further exposed the incompetence of the self selecting political class that govern us.

Having put all that effort, and our money, in to coming up with a plan for Europe they couldn't be bothered to consider risk management and have a contingency if something went wrong:

European Commission president Jose Manuel Barroso said 18 member states had already approved the treaty, and "the remaining ratifications should continue to take their course". But before the vote he had warned that "there is no Plan B".

Those of us in the real world who have to come up with plans and strategies have to think through all risks and mitigation steps. If we don't and the project fails at the first hurdle we would, quite rightly, have our competence questioned. If we didn't have a good explanation we would be out on our arses.

But not this lot, they'll just go for anther boondoggle, change a few words and start again without a hint of embarrassment. They will tell themselves it wasn't their fault, it is us plebs who are too thick to understand the greater cause, it was the fault of the Irish "yes" campaigners because they didn't explain well enough; anything but look at the real reasons. It will never enter their heads that there is an ever growing body of opinion that is fed up with their arrogant, corrupt, leadership and that we don't want their socialist claptrap which has been proven to be a failure so many times.

Lets leave now
