For one seat of the European Parliament - Brussels - commentaires Pour le siège unique du Parlement européen à Strasbourg. 2010-05-14T04:21:17Z https://www.taurillon.org/For-one-seat-of-the-European-Parliament-Brussels#comment8389 2010-05-14T04:21:17Z <p>Sachons en effet nous accorder sur l'essentiel : non pas tirer des plans sur la comète ou sur Mars, mais habiter l'Europe en la rendant plus juste, par une gouvernance économique et sociale, par une démocratie multipolaire avec l'exécutif à Bruxelles, le judiciaire à Luxembourg et le législatif à Strasbourg.</p> <p>Songeons enfin au bien commun des Européens pour développer la chance fraternelle qu'est la paix à l'échelle d'un continent, pour fédérer en une VASTE-VUE les forces vives inscrites dans notre nom trois fois millénaire d'EUROPE comme dans la Déclaration Schuman qui fête ce mois-ci ses soixante ans, même ou plutôt surtout s'il nous faut sortir chaque matin de la NUIT ; car, loin d'être un mythe, la jeune Phénicienne EUROPE nous offre chaque jour le moyen réel de dissiper les ténèbres (indissociables de son nom sémitique) précisément par la puissance divine d'un TAURILLON qui la fit de force accoster en Crète, modifiant son appellation et fondant avec elle L'EUROPE grâce à deux inventions révolutionnaires : les techniques nautiques et alphabétiques toujours porteuses, tant pour nos communications que pour les civilisations...</p> For one seat of the European Parliament - Brussels 2010-05-13T19:39:52Z https://www.taurillon.org/For-one-seat-of-the-European-Parliament-Brussels#comment8387 2010-05-13T19:39:52Z <p>I cannot believe that we are wasting such an enormous amount of cash on unnecessary expenditure. We should spend the 200 million on building new hospitals, schools, infrastructure, R&D. The seat of the EP should be in Brussels due to the fact that the rest of the EU institutions have their seat there. I'm so disappointed becasue nationalism and self-interest are still prevalent in the European family. The Americans are preparing to go to Mars and we still cannot agree on simple things. Greetings from Poland my beloved Europeans !</p> For one seat of the European Parliament - Brussels 2006-09-18T19:28:32Z https://www.taurillon.org/For-one-seat-of-the-European-Parliament-Brussels#comment1059 2006-09-18T19:28:32Z <p>I've given you my vote for this proposal to go to one European seat and stop wasting money and energy. I'm sure that you can get millions of votes if only people knew about this initiative. Please think of ways to make this known to a much broader audience and make this voting site available in different languages. Success with your efforts.</p> For one seat for of the European Parliament : Strasbourg 2006-08-03T08:40:56Z https://www.taurillon.org/For-one-seat-of-the-European-Parliament-Brussels#comment922 2006-08-03T08:40:56Z <p>I totally agree with Anders. Knowing a few people who work at the EP, I can feel their pain when it comes to move all their working stuff to more or less 400 km for 4 days only. And the most logical seat for the EP is unquestionably Brussels, as the other institutions are in this city, which makes the communication within Europe much more efficient. Plus, being French myself, I deplore such a selfish and narrow-minded view to absolutely want the seat of the EP in Strasbourg, just because French people wouldn't need to leave their beloved country. Why do we force other people to move to Strasbourg, which is not a central city at all ? It's nothing but a mascarade, a waste of time, of money, of energy, which will kill our dear MEPs and others. Think about them ! To me this campaign is a very good initiative and I do hope it will reach its target.</p> For one seat for of the European Parliament : Strasbourg 2006-06-28T16:56:18Z https://www.taurillon.org/For-one-seat-of-the-European-Parliament-Brussels#comment730 2006-06-28T16:56:18Z <p>Oh, c'mon, dont shy away frm the truth ! This isn't only a local matter (in any case the local interests for Strasbourg are not stronger than those for Brussels).</p> <p>I know many people who are for the seat of the EP in Strasbourg only, and who have no connection whatsoever with this city. To name only a few who come to my mind : Berndt Posselt, a German EPP MEP, Toni Giuliano, President of JEF-UK, resident in Brussels, Maïté Abram, Director of the European Movement Belgium (both of the latter, of course not in their official capacity)...</p> <p>Many arguments against Strasbourg are perfectly relevant, so please do not use fallacious ones...</p> For one seat for of the European Parliament : Strasbourg 2006-06-28T09:19:24Z https://www.taurillon.org/For-one-seat-of-the-European-Parliament-Brussels#comment722 2006-06-28T09:19:24Z <p>People from Strasbourg I guess</p> For one seat for of the European Parliament : Strasbourg 2006-06-27T20:01:12Z https://www.taurillon.org/For-one-seat-of-the-European-Parliament-Brussels#comment720 2006-06-27T20:01:12Z <p>Who is « we » exactly ?</p> For one seat for of the European Parliament : Strasbourg 2006-06-24T19:45:41Z https://www.taurillon.org/For-one-seat-of-the-European-Parliament-Brussels#comment698 2006-06-24T19:45:41Z <p>We all agree that the EP should have one seat, which is Strasbourg. So why talk about Brussels ?</p> <p>Je trouve que l'amalgame entre « un seul siège pour le PE » et « déménagement du PE » à Bruxelles est de mauvaise foi. On critique le second et vous vous défendez sur le premier... Ce n'est pas sain.</p> For one seat for of the European Parliament : Strasbourg 2006-06-23T15:41:29Z https://www.taurillon.org/For-one-seat-of-the-European-Parliament-Brussels#comment691 2006-06-23T15:41:29Z <p>I do not think that I want to destroy the idea of Europe by asking the EP to have one seat. Moreover, this would also mean that the EP could work better in serving citizens instead of wasting its resources in cars, lorries, trains and flights. However, you give a nice perspective of one day maybe having a single seat of the EP, Council or whichever institution in Sarajevo.</p> For one seat for of the European Parliament : Strasbourg 2006-06-21T12:39:46Z https://www.taurillon.org/For-one-seat-of-the-European-Parliament-Brussels#comment685 2006-06-21T12:39:46Z <p>Effectivement, il faudrait un seul siège pour le parlement européen, Strasbourg, Bruxelles ayant assez d'institutions à l'heure actuelle et représentant dans l'inconscient des peuples un centre technocratique honni et coupé des réalités. Tout centraliser à Bruxelles serait le meilleur moyen d'accélérer la désagrégation actuellement en cours de l'idée européenne et nous ferait sans doute revenir 100 ans en arrière. La construction de L'Europe est consécutive à Verdun et à Auschwitz et ce n'est pas le confort de quelques députés ou autres fonctionnaires qui feront fléchir un sens et des valeurs qui apparemment les dépassent. Cessez ce lobbying anti-Strasbourg infondé et contre-productif, les arguments financiers étant un prétexte démagogique fallacieux et allez travailler pour les citoyens.</p> <p>In two words, for globish addicts, please open a book about Europa and understand the sense of dramatic recent Europa's history : Verdun, Auschwitz, Sarajevo, have you heard something about it ? Forget this poor and very little war against the symbol of Stasbourg, only due to tiny individual views or to some lobby who want to destroy the idea of Europe.</p> For one seat for of the European Parliament - Brussels 2006-06-19T06:50:32Z https://www.taurillon.org/For-one-seat-of-the-European-Parliament-Brussels#comment669 2006-06-19T06:50:32Z <p>Congratulations for that brillant campaign ! I fully support you on this issue.</p> <p>The European Council by refusing to discuss the issue has once again demonstrated the cotempt in which it holds European citizens and their elected representatives. It is definitely unsuprising that some people choose to reject the EU with that appaling behaviour from our government.</p> <p>Power to the European Parliament !</p>
