    I wondered how long it would take. The EU can do not right as far as you're concerned.

    But this is the person running the European Commission? He is wrong on so many levels. If Maduro is to be 'brought to justice' so are half the worlds rulers. If he wants to sort something out he should be looking at the organisation he 'leads', undemocratic, corrupt, failing so many of its citizens. Let him who casts the first stone….

    I've got to say it's a form of bullying/double standards, Russia has a dictator, but Juncker wouldn't dare point the finger in that particular direction...
    Plus it's a slippery slope meddling in a Nation's Sovereignty...

    Individual countries have had sanctions on Maduro for ages, and the OAS has been condemning him, so why is it different when the EU does it? (And the EU still has sanctions on Russia, even if they don't dare speak too harshly about Putin.)

    You know fine well that sanctions are soft politics and only cover certain things...don't see the EU putting sanctions on the import of Russian Gas...

    I am pro European too, which is why I dislike the EU. This is a classic example of the drunken behavior of this loon.

    Yeah, you can see how trashed Poland's economy is by the fact it's doubled in size since 2004, and the Baltic countries have higher GDP's per capita than Russia. If the EU is so bad for them, why aren't they agitating to leave?

    Do! Because they have been heavily subsidised by Germany Britain and France! And, with all that Expat money flowing back… You have to look East and South to see the problems. With their own currencies they would be doing better. Poland is agitating so are some Danes, havent you heard?
    Macaroni is apparently furious Belgium is chosing the F35. Sensibly we have interests in that and the Typhoon. Protectionism should be the EUs motto….
