Oh for the gift of the Gab! Flowers say it all

So the British Tories were taken aback by the language used by the French Secretary of State for European Affairs.....they had "castrated" their influence in Europe he said. "They have one line and they just repeat the line. It is a very bizarre sense of autism". He denounced their plans to bring back fffffff...pppp powers from Brussels to Britain as "pathetic". 8:51 UK time, Thursday, 5 November 2009
Just two days officially married and the sparks are flying about. But no one said it would be a bed of roses......ooops ......I meant I Iris........not her of course but the Fleur. But soon, as young lovers so often do, there was the make-up......not the cosmetic kind but genuine kiss and....steady......just words really... nice ones like I didn't mean what I said........ it was a mis-understanding.....and so on and on and on.....why can't they just send flowers....

In the language of flowers, an Iris means: your friendship means so much to me.

The Czech constitutional court has ruled that the Lisbon Treaty is in line with the constitution, clearing the way for President Vaclav Klaus to sign it. The Czech Republic is the only EU member yet to ratify the treaty, and the decision removes the penultimate hurdle to its passage.

To Preside or not to Preside that is the question?
German party cool on Blair for EU......oct26 2009.
Joerg Essen, explained his party's position "We know Tony Blair for a very long time but I must admit there is a sympathy in my party for candidates from a smaller country," he told the BBC.
"We want to bring European countries closer together, and I think if someone is from a smaller country these people are more sensitive and they know the problems of the smaller ones, and I think that would be helpful for Europe. Europe is too dominated by the biggest ones".

"The EU should have no-one as its president. It is, and always was a treading block and giving it a president will merely blur the line between economic co-operation and political intervention."
