Nah, wasn't planning on referencing it, it's just interesting to get lots of different opinions on some things. There are so many backward and forward arguments involved sometimes just writing out arguments like that can help to organise things in your own head too.

What do you reckon about the accountability of NGO'S? They criticise governments for their actions, but then at least the governments are elected, so what gives the NGOs the right to criticise? Yet still many people in the public often believe what an NGO says over what a government says, why?

Mistars,

One should never cross a hobby horse with a high horse, it produces a very ugly, unstable animal.

I think the public trust the NGO's because the public image is that the people working for them are wholly altruistic, whereas politicians are seen as the exact opposite.

However my view was somewhat changed when I worked on the production for a charity gala for the Red Cross, I had the displeasure of working with some of the full time 'career' employees of that organisation, hypocrite does not go anywhere near describing them.

I remain,

Mistars,

The work I was doing was on a wholly commercial basis for them and not connected with any of the direct good works they carry out helping people.

Without being specific and not wanting to be potentially libellous towards named individuals or the Red Cross themselves. All I am prepared to divulge is that I was shocked by the behaviour and attitude of certain individuals who were full time employees of the Red Cross (and looked liked they made a nice tidy salary as well), in their dealings with me and other suppliers for the event, especially in matters financial.

I remain,

I've also earned short of 90k a year my whole life.

I can carry this on for a bit.

Not actually working at the moment but I reckon I still make around 100k a year, balloons of guff that is.

Well, the EU at any rate. Switzerland, for example, is different

Maybe we should think about letting Ukraine in instead.

I visited Moldova last month, they are very keen to join. EU flags flying everywhere!

The canaries are in the fujihd.net, as is Madeira, Reunion island, Ceuta and Melilla, Guadeloupe and several more. However, Swirtzerland, European Russia and Noway are not "in Europe", can you define the EU by geographical borders?

In the emerging world order we need to kowtow to the states but China is becoming more powerful, Russia's coming back onto the scene and there is talk of Brazil and India becoming economic powerhouses, what about the argument that we need to group Europe together to collectively have a more powefull voice on the world cnsuperpower.com?

you are right...
