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?
....And isn't that what Bliar has been after all along? His mouth is watering at the thought of being "President" of the poxy E.U.
Incidentally, should all this "President " cakk come to fruition, where does that leave H.M., The Queen? Would she be subservient to some pillock appointed by the E.U.? The very thought of this completely enrages me!

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.
Indeed. Many people confuse the two structures. The Council of Europe has nothing to do with the EU, it is an entirely separate organisation with a different structure and separate law. The Council of Europe contains within it the European Court of Human Rights, the EU has within it, the European Court of Justice which administers EU Law under the entirely separate Treaty of Rome.

Prescott was with the unions, before going into politics....the man is ignorant and strikes me as thick.

Notice whenever Blair was in the house of commons and talking about soldiers in Iraq/ Afghan, Prescott would be sat there pn the bench nodding off. He had no interest what so ever.

However did he get the role of Deputy PM?

I now feel 100% better after reading the letter the Fat One has sent to all civil servants (through Sir Gus O'Donnell). In it he says that before he took office in 1997, he knew nothing of government. What a difference 10 years makes. He still knows the square root of fuk-all about government!

Because he wasn't thick. He was and remains a self-centred, opportunistic SOAB whose main interest is himself and he would/will stop at nothing to get what he wanted/wants (and still does - see gratis pad in Admiralty).



Oh and he can't spell embarrassed, let alone feel it.

But he wasn't thick

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

They pay no local tax its a centralised tax if they are employed by the EU. If they are not employed by the EU then who is paying them?

The Council of Europe is not the European Union! The two organisations are wholly distinct, but the EU states are all members, along with the many non EU countries that are also members

The Council of Europe has a Secretary-General heading a staff of 2140, recruited from member states. Has its own payroll and a pension fund and runs itself.

Whole thing is financed directly from member states, not the EU. Contributions are based on population and wealth. The Council’s total budget for the year 2007 amounts to 197,2 million euros.

UK paid 20.2m of that last year. Think "Gravy Train" and "Talking Shop" together with "Utter Bollox" and "Useless".

Just the place for Prescott then
