Invade them! Payback for the 8th-11th centuries! And they thought we'd forgotten... :evil:

I find the diplomacy issue within the EU to be quiet odd. The EU has altered the relationship between member states and its citizens, yet we have old style diplomacy, embassies and ambassadors with immunity as if each member state was a third country.

Perhaps we should end all diplomatic priveliges within the EU for one anothers' embassies and work on a cultural institute and citizen information centre model.

And maybe an EU office for non host EU citizens in another member state, if they get into a spot of bother.

How about a compromise? Close our embassy in Stockholm, then declare war.

What would we do with the 500 Irish embassy staff in Stockholm?
We have 500 embassy staff in Stockholm? Why in the name of God do we need that many?

I disagree. Keep the embassy open but appoint Joe Burke as ambassador. I hear he's not busy these days...

Why anyone would bother to open an embassy in the 26 county free state I don't know.

Considering the **** up they've made of this, I think we should hang on for a while longer.

Do we need embassies in any EU states... is it not an abject waste of money, a throwback to before the invention of the Telephone and Aeroplane?


Swedens right to close all the small and unimportant embassies ,
