"The crisis will end when fear changes sides" - Pablo Iglesias Turrión
"Austerity is used as a cover to reconfigure society and increase inequality and injustice." - Jeremy Corbyn
Still this does not consider other parts of the planet and their geographical locations either.....now does it?
But you are welcome to defend it in the regards of how such is so deserving.
lol why are you all getting angry at the EU for this? They did not ask for the award! Are you the same people who cry everytime TIME announces the Man of the Year?
‘This is not peace, it is an armistice for 20 years.’ (Ferdinand Foch. After the Treaty of Versailles, 1919).
This is like the Oscars, where actors sit in a big room and try to convince each other that they really do have substance and meaning in their lives.
We see this farce for what it is.
The award is an attempt to legitimize the EU during a time of turmoil. If the EU wants true legitimacy, they need to hold referendums in the UK, in Greece, in Sweden, in Portugal, in Spain... and offer a CLEAR CHOICE whether to remain a part of the EU or become independent.
Or have our democracies evolved so much that the will of the people can no longer be trusted?
