We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The lady who says "You are breaking the rule. You are cut off." She's not even German.
The woman who cut him off was Irish MEP Mairead McGuinnes. While I liked Nigel Farage's speech, I can think of historical reasons for an Irish person taking pleasure in cutting off an Englishman, methinks.
It's more than that. Over the past century many of the native Irish left for greener pastures. Ireland fell into an economic slump for decades. Over the past 30 years or so Ireland has made a comeback mostly as the result of tax preferences and other benefits handed out like candy. But as the economy grew and all of the rich, elite and politicians benefited tremendously there weren't enough Irish citizens to fill all the jobs. Now that right there should have been great! They should have stopped right there with full employment and all of the citizens working. BUT... that wasn't as good for the politicians, the businessmen and the rich elite. No! it could be much better for them if they opened their borders and brought in unskilled workers, rif-raf, welfare cases, criminals, terrorists and god knows who else. NOT for the benefit of the Irish citizens who were enjoying jobs and a good economy for the first time in their life but for the pols, elite and owners. They HI-JACKED Ireland and they need(ed) the EU to keep the good times going.
So before the biggest risk to life and limb in Ireland is falling down while drunk or getting punched for supporting the wrong sports team in the wrong bar, now you can get raped, mugged, killed and knifed by Irelands new diversity (which is their strength). What they have done to Ireland is far worse than anything England managed to do in their long history.
He had said everything he needed to say and was ready to move on to the final two set pieces: the mike cut-off, which was performed right on cue, and the giddily happy march off the stage waving flags. It was perfect. I'll bet the chairman wishes she'd been able to cut off the cameras at the same time.
