  • Even dictators can be forced to back down now and then. The EU is not a democracy as we know it. The MEPs have little power because all the legislation debated is what the bureaucrats have put forward without reference to what the people actually want.

    What, taking to the streets setting fires and throwing shit at government buildings is how democracy is done these days?

    Maybe we could try that in the UK. See how it works out.

    Oh yes, the old authoritative source response Steve , so predictably deflective and point missing.

    The question is why did they vote to exclude cows, not the fact that they did…eventually.

  • That’s not democracy. That’s people power embarrassing the dictatorship to change tack.

    Look at the date of the article, the EU Parliament told the Commission to go shove it well before these protests

  • You're the one that's lying.

    Only herds infected with or adjacent to same were slaughtered under Foot & Mouth. Only cows over 30 months old were slaughtered under BSE.

    Now run along and see if you can pretend either of those is 100%.

    All cattle were culled where a single case of BSE was reported, also those on nearby farms. There were about 4.5 million cows culled in total.

  • Or in other words I was right and you are trying to disguise that you were wrong. All cattle weren't culled under BSE because very much not all herds had BSE and neither were they all culled under Foot and Mouth for similar reason. All cattle over 30 months were culled under BSE.

    You've been foot in mouth posting again Bread.

    Your splitting hairs again. 4.5 million cows culled by order of the unelected bureaucrats in Brussels is nothing to trivialise.
