While I was in Zaragoza to attend the wedding of Luis and Lara, we went to visit a bullfight. Luis and his Father, his father-in-law and me had very good seats and I took plenty pf photos.

This is not for the faint-hearted. I have not edited the photos apart from a reduction in size.

This was the first time I saw a bullfight apart from on TV, but I was told that the Torero performed very badly. So much so in fact, that the viewing public in the end threw their seat-covers at him (see last photo).

As you may know, my good friend Luis, one of the crazy ones, has married. He and the lovely Lara have tied the knot in Zaragoza in a wonderful traditional Spanish ceremony in the city’s cathedral.

Wedding Photos! Ok, I know you have been waiting, so here they are.

I have been a little preoccupied during the wedding so I did not take too many photos. I have more from before and after and they will be here sometime soon, when they have been censored ;-)

Luis, I sent you an email with the link to the high definition photos.

I was lucky enough to attend the October JADE Meeting in Brussels. All the best and loads of luck to the new team. I am sure they will do a great job. There are several dozen photos taken during the meeting on my camera, but because I am little pressed for time, they will be uploaded when I return from Spain.

This weekend I will attend Luis’ Wedding in Zaragoza. I have just finished packing and am now waiting to go to the airport. Ah, the excitement before travelling…

Once I return you will see both sets of photos here and selected photos on Facebook.

A French man in the House of Parliament? Have I missed the end of the empire?

Egalite, fraternite, royalty?

… and talking crap again.

Middle East peace envoy (don’t make me laugh) Tony Blair has cropped up from among the rubble of his reputation again to give the ruins of what he once stood for another kick with his left foot.

Speaking on the Protection of the Environment in front of a G8 preparatory group he said:

“The UN and the UN alone is the right forum to reach the global agreement”

There was once already such an agreement, it was called after the city it was signed in, and no, there are no extra points for guessing it’s name. It even appears to be working within the EU, and would probably have been working globally, too, until the US refused to cooperate.

As long as the largest polluters (not only per capita, but also in real terms) don’t commit themselves to sign up to whatever result is being agreed upon, any UN Treaty on Environmental Protection is doomed from the start. As long as the US refuses to step up to it’s responsibilities, the EU and its partners are the only bodies that have a reasonable chance of preserving our beautiful planet for generations to come.

Until then former Prime Ministers would do well to concentrate their efforts and influence in areas they have not previously bombed and invaded or that have a somewhat real chance of success. Suitable focus might be put on improving relations between the UK and the EU and strengthening the mutual respect and cooperation and solidarity that has made the EU great and the UK prosperous.

Considering recent developments in the currency markets might also suggest that this is a time of near maximum coherence between the Euro and the Pound. You know what I am getting at, but that is for another article, as this one is too long already.

Oh, I almost forgot. Happy St. Patricks Day everybody. See you in the pub.
