The tribute to Jacques Delors

The tribute to Jacques Delors, one of the founding fathers of the single market and the modern EU (Jacques Delors - Wikipedia) who passed away on 27th Dec 2023 at the age of 98, took place in Paris yesterday.

None of the British politicians from the Tories or the Labour or any other parties showed up.
They’re either blatantly rude, or not invited… my guess is the latter :expressionless:

Henceforth with a surprising uniformity, none of the British MSM covered the event.
Collective senior moment :nerd_face:

well, 不用过分解读吧。Delors 这种 hard core European Union integrationist。都brexit了, 英国政客也很难做啊,不是rude.
很可能就是没有请(EU没风度)。

In my dictionary this will forever mean “men who have sex with men” :sweat_smile:

就是没请呗,人家自己人葬礼不想有引起不愉快回忆的人在那儿膈应。就跟生日party只请朋友一样,多正常,不需要解读。

好像不是吧。每年eu各种一战,二战纪念活动,战胜国与战败国都是出席的,场面和睦,融洽。
这次brexit却不同,eu一直耿耿于怀,其实都生米煮成熟饭,成埃落定了。eu应该放下包袱,向前看。
