    How is it we have natural gas but it's not enough?

    Because our stupid governments sold off a lot of our own natural gas over the years, with no thought for our own future.

    Buying from Russia is not binding, nor a dependency.

    It's tankers of liquid gas, not pipeline.

    We are buying from Norway, Netherlands, Qatar and only a small amount from Russia.

    We can buy from Dubai too when it's a better price.

    The article says that our consumption of gas is reducing.

    That's good news, but I don't see how.

    Does anyone know why?

    In general buying from Yurrup is merely to comply with more controls, quotas, don't you know?

    As for oil, we can and do buy on price, from any country.

    So why do you chaps think there will be any problems, is it just your doom and gloom outlook?

    Angela Merkel is culpable for this with her misplaced and misconceived 'open door policy'.


    Quite why the concept of 'first Country of asylum' (Article 26 Section 11 of the Asylum Procedures Directive) doesn't apply is because it is not obligatory.


    So what use is that?


    Another example of the mish-mash that is EU protocol decided by an unelected and failing bureaucracy.

    Spot on Rowley.

    Is "first country" really not obligatory?

    I thought it is.

    That's what they told Greece! And that's why the EU is not contributing money to help house and feed them, and they are in poor conditions.

    It might be because Greece is in debt to them, so it's probable they reduced the loan, but that still means no cash to help.

    In my view it's inhuman, not inhumane.

    They couldn't force Hungary or Czechoslovakia because they aren't the first country of entry.

    Like so many so-called procedures and directives supposedly administered by the EU it's all smoke and mirrors.

    This is an extract from Section 11 ...

    "It should be noted that Member States are not required to apply the concept of first country of asylum, as Article 26 is a permissive provision. However, in accordance with the APD, those Member States which apply the concept are not required to examine whether an applicant qualifies as a refugee or for subsidiary protection status, where a country which is not a Member State is considered as a first country of asylum for the applicant pursuant to Article 26. In other words, the Member State may consider such applications as inadmissible."

    Just read that carefully, again and again if necessary, and tell me if it means anything at all.


    It's absolute mumbo jumbo and contradicts itself on so many levels ... which is how the EU manages to confuse and corrupt what could and should be simple codification.

    As I see it I'm afraid that the EU is a busted flush and now purely exists to spin webs within other webs in order to further confuse and maintain it's undemocratic leverage over States that are reluctant, or indeed no longer in a position, to resist.

    Sad innit?

    So it's optional, the country is not required to check if the applicants claim is valid (i.e. e.g. that there really is a war in their country of origin and they are in danger) and can reject or accept their application for asylum.

    I agree it doesn't need to have a law or statement, but thousands of EU bureaucrats could be out of a job otherwise. Poor souls!

    With probably thousands of equally neutral unnecessary edicts, what a collection of fiascos.

    So I think Greece has been blackmailed with some threat in this case.

    Hmmmm... Over 3,000 Somali and Sudanese "asylum seekers" in the UK driving BMWs.

    So we can kick them out, but we aren't. The Great British Sense of "Fair Play" again?

    Where else on earth is this displayed, where Brits are given this treatment?

    We couldn't even kick out Abu Hamza!

    Duhhhhh!

    We did in the end, after we slapped 7 years on him we sent him to the US where he will be in prison forever. That'll do.

    We must retain a sense of fair play. For example, the Somali refugee pictured below, Caaisho, 25, from north London, does drive an 07 plate BMW but also has a flourishing career as an escort.

    It's about getting a good balance between red tape found in politics, and that found elsewhere in the hotel.

    Name: Caaisho
    Age: 25
    Travels from: North London
    Weekend bookings: Available
