Sunday revelations

Godless prophet PZ Myers has revealed that Lucy is actually married to her ostensible opponent in the cosmic struggle, Mr Deity. This explains a lot. PZ even has photographic evidence of his encounter with these two supernatural beings.

Elsewhere in the eternal conflict between good and evil, Tony Blair's chances of becoming President of the EU have increased. Thanks, Ireland! Don't say I didn't warn you.

I think US federalism is a really poor model for European federalism. In particular, it would probably be better off without the House of Lords, er, Council and its President.

The structure of the EU isn't like the US at all.

Having voted no last friday (Joe Higgin's approbation is all I ever wanted) I'm now reading Booker and North's _The Great Deception_. And an eye opener it is.

I'm not too keen on the title, which is just a little too redolent of conspiraloonery, what stands out is the persistence of the politics of national interest alongside the continuing strengthening of the supra-national centre. I can't help feeling that this contradiction may some day manifest itself in a negative dialectic.

That would be the inter-imperialist contradictions I still worry about sometimes ...

'A German tank, and a Polish road-sign'.

It's deja vu all over again.

It's deja vu all over again.

I suppose it's an improvement to have bankers and other big business figures conquering, rather than the German army. It will of course continue to increase in suckitude to be working-class in the New Order, but at least it's class warfare rather than straight-up genocide. And class warfare is more analogous to ethnic cleansing than genocide anyway.

And I thought it was only US fundamentalists who were so invested in the whole EEC End Times shtick. Um, congratulations?
