Sarkozy: Cameron is 'an obstinate kid'

So, the President of the Republic of France has resorted to hurling insults at the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Nicolas Sarkozy has accused David Cameron of behaving like 'an obstinate kid' during last week's European Council meeting.

An obstinate kid?

No10 has apparently refused to comment on President Sarkozy's remarks directly. His Grace has no such scruples:

Odious little schemer - like most vertically challenged men he has to prove to himself he is the man he wishes he was. Built up shoes and an ambitious trophy wife has still not brought him the status he thinks he deserves - and never will.

Love the photoshop pic - suckling at the teat of Germany - brilliant!

It's Sarkozy's hypocrisy that is so mind-boggling.

The only way he can claim to think others are being stubborn is by thinking France has some God-given right to block Agricultural Policies and boss other nations around when they try something vaguely similar.

Which is, depressingly, very likely to be what he thinks...

Bernard Levin used to say that "taxes were something to be tolerated, like haemorrhoids, or French foreign policy..."

Sadly very apt.

Your Grace, this remark is the closest the Dwarf will get to kiss and make-up. The damage is done. The French were gloating over their deceit of Cameron on 1st December in Paris. An 'ally' who gloats over deceit? These people can never be trusted or respected.

The mistake Britain has made is appointing France as her agent in dealing with Germany. It's time to freeze the French out and negotiate bi-laterally with Germany in all regards. Simply ignore the Dwarf henceforth.

Ignore Le Petit Caporal (Le Monde is very reasonable today and almost praises Britain's stance) it is Merkel who we should worry about but even she knows by her latest conciliatory remarks that hey we need the UK's dosh. Aren't they the next biggest contributors after Germany!

Angela Merkel was actually born in West Germany but her family moved to the Eastern part in the 50's. A rare other way progression. Her father - a Lutheran pastor and her mother were Marxists. It is interesting that Merkel's ascendancy came after Ratzinger's (a German) appointment as Pope.

A lot of Merkel's past is shrouded in mystery. There are even some far fetched accounts that she was Hitler's daughter. (Frozen sperm etc) She was after all born on April 20th (Hitler's birthday).

She has been a very indoctrinated woman and is far more dangerous than the Little Corporal. She and the other no-hopers are about to bring about the fall of Europe. So I for one don't care about being at the same table, on the margins, not in the same room, isolated and alone from that dreadful bunch of self serving loonies.

Now leave the French alone! Such attacks might well trigger 'The Auld Alliance'

In 2011 the British historian Dr Siobhan Talbott published the result of research and concluded the Auld Alliance is actually unrevoked and still in force.

All Scots French citizens! This may explain SNP opposition to Mr Cameron.

Now if kid Cameron was really obstinate he could adopt a "dog in the manger" attitude regarding misuse of EU facilities for Fiscal Union purposes. That would screw things up for months. Collapse of the euro could then be conveniently blamed on British bloodymindedness. The resulting mayhem would make the current row look like a passing cloud on a summer's day. On the other hand, if he turns out to be Mr Reasonable then the veto won't amount to much.

As for Sarkosy. When France crumbles economically he will doubtless face the wrath of his own countrymen. Assuming they can find a lampost short enough.

Strewth! it looks like the front of the first Anti-Christmas card,

Reminds me of the scene in Gibsons "The Passion" when a sinister Satan was creeping through the crowds at the scourging of Jesus, clutching an ugly mishapen dwarf, presumably the Anti Christ of revelation to his bosom like a baby. YUK!

Dodo - go for it! If the Scots moved en masse to France, we could cut the UK's welfare bill and deficit massively! If you could take the Highland's midge population with you too, I'd be much obliged as they do spoil a good ramble in the stunning Highland countryside!

Whilst resident in Scotland, I am very much a stranger in a foreign land.

I doubt the 'Auld Alliance' and citizenship of France will lead to many Scots moving across the channel. You do know there are more 'down South' than 'up North'? Why would they? We are nicely subsidised - free personal care for the elderly, free prescriptions, no tuition fees, and free bus passes.

Your homeland is receiving significant subsidy too, let's not forget. For years, EU subsidies made up a sizeable portion of Ireland's GDP!

Strangely, I'm entitled to triple nationality - British, Irish and Israeli. As a Roman Catholic I'm also wondering whether citizenship of the Vatican State is a possibility. Mind you, I doubt a married man (to a woman) could find employment or accomodation within those walls.

Its good having a choice and I'm weighing my options. Think I'll stay put for now.

I suspect DanJ0 finds relief in other ways than my sexual conduct!

You do know in common law the term applies to an act against a man by another man or against a woman? It also covers certain acts by either a man or a woman with an animal?

I'd rather that he was fully and permanently straight than the late-life gay sexual awakening his homophobia has been suggesting around here. The sexually ambivalent in orientation terms are usually a bane to the rest of us as they carry rather a lot of 'baggage' with them when they dive in.

That fabled 'gaydar' of yours at work is it? I trust its a bit more reliable when your out on the prowl.

I reject the accusation I am 'homophobic'. Where is your evidence? Certainly I am opposed to homosexuality becoming 'normalised' as, in my opinion, it is a psycho-sexual disorder leading to misery, and to unnatural and perverse acts. Is this an irrational fear of homosexuals? I really don't think so.

Dodo: "I reject the accusation I am 'homophobic'. Where is your evidence?"

You have scattered it around the thread, masquerading it as religious doctrine stuff or the sort of religious super-hero thing some of your Catholics seem to be adopting here these days to excuse your rather more earthly motivations.

"Homosexuality is a psycho-sexual disorder leading to misery, and to unnatural and perverse acts. To 'normalise' it is endorse a way of life that deminishes permanent hetrosexual sexual relationships and familylife."

Is that a homophobic comment?

Dodo: "Is that a homophobic comment?"

You're hoping the context of it across the blog threads will be missed by cutting and pasting that on its own, I think.

Of course, the comment contains all sorts of trigger words to try to wind people up too. It's not a statement of fact either, is it? It's an opinion, with its own grounding.

Let's take it apart.

"Homosexuality is a psycho-sexual disorder"

You're asserting that. You don't know the truth of it at all and it's looking like it isn't true at the moment.

"leading to misery"

There's something of the Medical Model vs the Social Model of disability in that assumption, I think.

"and to unnatural"

A version of the naturalistic fallacy there.

"and perverse acts"

And a value judgement, probably nestling in a dictionary definition if pushed. That makes us perverts, right. And perverts are bad, right?

"deminishes permanent hetrosexual sexual relationships and familylife"

And an unsupported assertion to finish. Marvellous. Now why would you do all that?

At one point, you were claiming to be something important in the field of psychology, if I recall correctly, though it was all suitably vague. Writing stuff like that makes me rather suspicious. But pushing trolleys in a hospital is important, right? Little cogs and all that.

Blogger Dodo the Katholikos Dude said...

I didn't ask you if you agreed with the comment, I asked if it was 'homophobic'. All of it can be justified and substantiated within my worldview - or at least serve as the start of a debate.

So, is it homophobic?

Who rattled your cage?
