PRESCOTTS NEW JOB WITH THE EU

#1
:x I read that the Fat One (known in Spain as "El Gordo") is being voted in by his fellow Labour(ious) MP mates as a member of the UK delegation with the Council of Europe. It's an unpaid job but he'll still have £60K per year in the back pouch when he finally quits as an MP. That unpaid job he's taking has generous travel allowance perks as well. I suppose that makes it OK then. :evil:

Council of Europe? Did my old man not fight for King and country 60 years ago to stop things like this? :twisted:

The man is a joke.

He can't even speak English so he's going to have loads of credibility in Europe if he can't at least speak a second language.

But as long as the tax payer isn't paying for him then who cares what he does. No doubt he will be looking for a half decent diary secretary to shag as well.

I'm beginning to see a pattern here. How many Neu Arbeit members have been given jobs in the EU. Could the plan all along have been to sell us out to Europe, and then populate the coridoors of EU power with Labliar apparifatchicks?

According to the Mail, the fat clunt 's on a cabinet pension of £23K plus an MPs pension of £37K plus "allow him to live the lifestyle he has become accostomed to - first class travel, 5 star hotels and tens of thousands of pounds worth of expenses"!

I'm in the wrong fuking job! :twisted:

Please tell me you're winding me up - this can't be true. The man's a caricature. The only plus side is that he'll be out of the country.

It's a bit more direct than that I'm afraid. I hear he's to be allowed to keep his flat at Admiralty Arch. That's reckoned to be worth about 100 grand a year. Care to guess how much tax he'll be paying on this benefit in kind? Obviously Prezza hasn't handed over all of the negatives yet.

Tony is going to be hanging on to Chequers for the time being too. He can't move in to his mansion in London for some reason. We couldn't force the poor chap to live in his house in that dreadful Sedgefield place now could we?

How about Darfur as UKLO to the Janjaweed. Although he would have to get a really a big horse to ride (no two) - there you go Johnny Two Nags, or the Fat Bastrad of the Apocalypse. He definately needs somewhere where he would sweat a lot though help her with barmy hair to fancy it with him again. Maybe Mayor of Mogadishu.

See if they let us pick the sinecures for these toads it would far better for the world.

This fat, semi-literate, gormless oik cannot be getting another job.

I've been abroad for seventeen days, please tell me this post is a sick joke - please!

If true, can you imagine the dirt he has on key people in the Liarbour Party?

Prescott wants to get a slot on the Parliamentary Assembly for the Council of Europe, possibly the worst and most wholly useless body on the face of the planet.

Costs nigh on Euro 200m a year to run and last year the UK coughed up 20m of that. All it produces is worthy but self important crap that nobody really takes much notice of. All employees of the Council of Europe (there are 2140 of them) pay no taxes whatsoever on their salaries. It is an abomination

Just to be clear

Council of Europe :

An international organisation in Strasbourg which comprises 47 democratic countries of Europe. It was set up to promote democracy and protect human rights and the rule of law in Europe.

Parliamentary Assembly:

The deliberative body of the Council of Europe, composed of 318 representatives (and the same number of substitutes) appointed by the 47 member states’ national parliaments. It is a horrible talking shop, no more no less. Cannot pass laws, just spouts.

Not to be confused with

European Parliament :

The parliamentary body of the European Union which comprises 785 European Members of Parliament of the 27 European Union countries, elected by universal suffrage.

European Commission :

The executive organ of the European Union, based in Brussels, which monitors the proper application of the Union treaties and the decisions of the Union institutions.

All EU employees pay tax - but not in the country they are working because of the variations between countries. The tax rate is linked to salary grade and goes directly to Brussels, its around 20 something percent, with pension and healthcare deducted on top.

They are not EU Employees: we just pay for them:

Emoluments

The basic salary is specified in the offer of employment. Allowances may be payable in addition to the basic salary. All emoluments paid by the Council of Europe are exempt from taxation
.

The Council Of Europe is a body set up by International Treaty and includes non EU countries such as Azerbaijan, Russian Federation and Switzerland. It is a vile body that is wholly unaccountable yet, thanks to the pressure groups who find it a very handy back door into the EU, spawns endless daft discussion papers, resolutions etc.

These gain credibility because few people actually know what the Council of Europe actually is but it sounds very important and is often confused with the European Commission. They stick their noses into everything EU related, give the impression that they are actively involved rather than just spouting on about it and the biased crap they produce gets fed into the party politics of EU socialist dreamland, thence has a dangerous trend to become EU policy.

No wonder that people like Prescott find it so attractive: the ability to influence social policy across Europe without any accountability.

Apologies for ranting on about this but for months my working life was cursed by arsewipes from the CoE demanding ever more detailed information for a position paper at the behest of some of UK members of the Parliamentary Assembly who had an large axe to grind. What came out in the end was enough to make you puke: wibble that ignored the real facts in favour of Euro Socialist Policy Babble and then had to be fully responded to so we could show why everybody could safely ignore it.

People can rightly blame things on the EU but many of the true policy nonsenses can be traced back to the doings of the CoE. They really are a problem.

Anyway if that was not bad enough, Prescott gets to keep his grace-and-favour flat at Admiralty House in Whitehall even after leaving the government.

Tony Blair also gets to use Chequers whilst his mega expensive London gaff is finished off.

More public money down the drain
