In the land of the euros, the one eyed man is king.

Simon McGarr writes about adventures in the world of the European Movement. I do not think it is quite factual to say that Margot Wallstrom, the VP of the Commission (whom everyone in Ireland insisted in calling ‘Margo’ in honour of the Queen of Country) spent the evening speaking to bloggers, although a considerable amount of time was spent.

I do think that if there were another referendum (which I would not necessarily recommend) and if the campaigning followed the lines suggested at this meeting, then the result would almost certainly not be pretty from the Commission’s point of view. I think the Commissioner was a little bit surprised to hear that defiance of authority was considered a virtue in Ireland, even for loyal government supporters.
