    Nordic Natterjacks, Ignorant Of History!


    Just looking back at things we should have covered last month, questions we should have asked…like…

    What do these klutzes have in common?

    Jeppe Kofod is Danish minister of foreign affairs. Pekka Haavisto is Finnish minister of foreign affairs

     

    The Nordics unite to support the Council of Europe and ECHR

    =

    Gudlaugur Thór Thórdarson is Icelandic minister for foreign affairs and international development cooperation. Ine Eriksen Søreide is Norwegian minister for foreign affairs. Ann Linde is Swedish minister for foreign affairs.

    Apart from their parallel positions, foreign ministers of their respective countries, they are all stunningly ignorant of modern history.

    I say this because they know that the Council of Europe, which we have written about before…

    Bojo Gangs Up Against ‘Our Oldest Ally? ‘ 

    …when we showed you it’s hugely expensive HQ in Strasbourg….

      .

      …a deplorable body which spawned the ECHR, now a Sorosoid tool used to bludgeon national sovereignty – was established in the aftermath of the World War Two…

      .

      oooo

      ….in Strasbourg on the basis of international law – including human rights and the principles of democracy and the rule of law.

      So it was.

      And many, if not all, of the signatory countries had capital punishment on their statute books.

      Many had corporal punishment too as a legal sanction.

      Sexual (‘gay’) perversion in many European nations was against the law – certainly in the UK, which only legalised it in the early 1960s.

      Yet the Council of Europe and its Sorosoid Court has declared capital and corporal punishment unacceptable….

      =

      ==

      …and engaging in all manner of sexual perversion, while not yet mandatory….

      =

      =

      ….is deemed as acceptable as living decently within normal relationships.

      Were those original signatories hypocrites?

      Hardly likely they would sign up, if they thought any laws in their own lands were transgressions against  human rights and the principles of democracy and the rule of law

    • So the original convention, which these Nordic Natterjacks invoke so readily, has itself been perverted by malevolent jurists.

      .

      Wise nations should withdraw.

      All very true, what you say, Ross, these foreign ministers are just air-brushing the truth about that post-war rights pact.
      What I want to know is why you are still energetically publishing all these readables after you said you were going to ease off.

      Dont get me wrong, I am always happy to read what you offer, but if this is you easing off, I am wondering what we would get ( 10 pages a day?) if you decided you had relaxed too much.

        Okay, Jim, I confess. I can’t sit idly by.
        It’s not that I don’t have things both onerous and enjoyable to do, but there are gaps between them and so much in the news that I feel obliged to deride or dispute.

      You are absolutely right about the governments that signed up to the convention but I think you’re wrong to say the ministers who made this new statement are ignorant.
      They are just dishonest.
      It goes without saying they know the convention was never meant to stop the use of the death penalty or to etop badly behaved children getting a quick wallop with a cane or a strap in school.
      The Council of Europe and the ECHR make fools of theirselves when they contradict the intentions of the convention.
