Catherine Ashton seems to have been made the EU Foreign affairs person, whatever the phrase is.   Now, you are wondering who she is.  Without James Schneider’s post, I would not know either.  Personally, I don’t have as much of a problem with her being unelected: what sort of an EU election would it have been anyway?  Indifference piled on indifference, squared, and with a lot of xenophobia thrown in for flavour.

In fact, it reminded me of the very entertaining convolutions that used to go on in 19th century Britain, where Canning, Lords Russell and Melbourne, Peel and Wellington, Derby, Palmerston and all their ilk would manouevre, often with utmost reluctance, around the poisoned chalice of the Premiership, bringing together all sorts of funny coalitions.  I actually think it had more of democracy about it, in a weird way, than asking millions of people who have barely heard of Belgium, let alone a man called Van Rompoy.

But what was most interesting about James’s post was what he discovered about why his blog post was so popular.  Firstly, least surprising: people don’t know her, and his blogpost helped.  Good.  Go there if you googled and ended up here instead.  What was more amazing was that people were actively searching for “jewish conspiracy”.  What the hell is it with conspiracy theorists?

UPDATE: Yes, it is happening here too.  Who are all you people?

9 thoughts on “Extraordinary fact . . . about Catherine Ashton (via Schneider Home)

  1. Sorry to be a knob but your link to me is to something else – pinacle global something. Must have been in your Ctrl C thingy.

    Its got worse I’m afraid on the google front. There are plenty of sensible ones like “Catherine Ashton political views” or “Catherine Ashton afghanistan” but even more permutations of whether Ashton is Jewish. For goodness sake. Its bloody mad.

  2. Whoops! link fixed.

    I just don[‘t get it. I used to the think the Internet was unambiguously good thing, but the way it feeds and supports these nutters gives me pause

  3. You need think about it. Despite the emails, the overwhelming evidence showing global warming is happening hasn’t changed.
    “The e-mails do nothing to undermine the very strong scientific consensus . . . that tells us the Earth is warming, that warming is largely a result of human activity,” Jane Lubchenco, who heads the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, told a House committee. She said that the e-mails don’t cover data from NOAA and NASA, whose independent climate records show dramatic warming.

  4. Firstly, we who are searching for info about jewish conspiracy, are people of free mind, who want to live in a world where all nationalities are equal, without jewish domination in politics, economy, culture… Who gave them the right to call us goys and treat us like animals?
    Secondly, C.Ashton does look like a jewish person because of her disproportionate, even ugly if you like, face features. I think G. Brown is a jew, V. Putin & D. Medvedev are as well. Not mentioning W.Clinton and his wife. Why a tiny nationality represents the most powerful world countries? Are they smarter or something? Is it their “destination”?
