EU Protectionism scam Raises £Millions for GARLIC

EU Protectionism scam Raises £Millions for GARLIC

.

Hi,

congratulations to the team of the independent MEP Nikki Sinclaire who is now leading the ‘We Demand A Referendum Party’ – not to be confused with one of Nigel Farage’s party’s band wagon jumping with the use of her party’s name.

Nikki Sinclaire’s team has had great success in bringing many of the iniquities and scams of The EU to the attention of the British public. Perhaps this is why UKIP have done so much to seek to sabotage her efforts and those of her team with lies, distortions and criminal abuse.

Do publicise this latest exposure of the standards of dishonesty of The EU which are almost on a par with their idiotic regulations on the amount of bend permitted in bananas which the EU was forced to repeal paying a massive fine to The WTO using our money to fund their stupidity!

Garlic Imports from Third Countries

A. Import Licences under Quota Arrangements – ‘A’ Licences

Introduction

1. This Notice is to inform you of the arrangements for importing garlic from third countries. This notice replaces Notice to Traders 61/08.

2. The arrangements for quota licences (referred to as ‘A’ licences) and non-quota (referred to as ‘B’ licences) will apply from 15 November 2008.

Licence Requirement

3. All imports of garlic under CN code 0703 2000 into the EU require an import licence. Imports under quota arrangements allow you to import garlic at an ad valorem customs duty rate of 9.6%. Non-quota imports are subject to a specific duty rate of €1,200 per tonne.

4. All other imports of products with a CN code and description listed in Annex III are also subject to an import licence.

VAT Registration Certificate

5. When you submit an application for a Quota ‘A’ licence for the first time during a quota period you must provide a copy of your VAT Registration Certificate. 

6. When you apply for a ‘B’ licence you must provide a copy of your VAT Registration Certificate each time you apply.

A. Import Licences Under Quota Arrangements – ‘A’ Licences

7. To apply for ‘A’ licences you must be either a ‘traditional’ importer or a ‘new’ importer.

Qualification as a Traditional Importer

8. A traditional importer is a trader who has imported at least 50 tonnes of fruit and vegetable products (as listed in Annex II) during the previous completed import period preceding your application. 

9. To qualify as a traditional importer you must have obtained and used ‘A’ licences in each of the three previous completed import periods. 

10. For traditional importers a reference quantity will be established based on the maximum quantity of your imports for all origins in one of the following calendar years: 1998, 1999 or 2000.

11. However, if you have not imported garlic in one of the three calendar years 1998, 1999 or 2000 your reference quantity will be established based on the maximum quantity of your imports of garlic in one of the first three consecutive completed import periods in which you have obtained ‘A’ licences. The import period is from 1 June to 31 May the following year.

12. You will be required to nominate the year and the quantity imported. You must also provide details of the licences used.

Qualification as a New Importer

13. If you do not qualify as a traditional importer you may qualify as anew importer.

14. A new importer is a trader who has imported at least 50 tonnes of fruit and vegetable products (as listed in Annex II) in each of the two previous calendar years. 

15. Proof that you meet this requirement must be submitted each year. The proof we require will be as follows:

– copies of the import licences, if applicable; and 

– copies of the Customs entries showing your company name, the product you have imported, the quantity and the date the entry was lodged with Customs.

Note: For traditional importers – for the entire quota year you may apply for no more than your annual reference quantity. This quantity may be applied for in any one sub-period or spread across all of the sub-periods, and may be from any origin. 

For example, if your reference quantity is 500 tonnes, you may apply for 150 tonnes in sub-period 1 from China, 50 tonnes in sub-period 3 from Argentina and 300 tonnes in sub-period 4 from all other third countries.

The Rights of Man – The Cyrus Cylinder

Posted by Greg Lance - Watkins (Greg_L-W) on 02/12/2012

The Rights of Man – The Cyrus Cylinder

.

Hi,

the foundations of mankind’s written language are to be found in Cuniform and one of the earliest examples to survive is the Cyrus Cylinder where at the written word’s outset is defined as all too ‘human’ in their praise of a King and the attempt to define rights – a fascinating insight into our psyche as a genus!

eBay Image Hosting at www.auctiva.comThe Cuneiform in my collection underpins the belief I have in the written word that is the foundation of my book collection and library – even perhaps my life!

 

The world’s first written declarion of the rights of man are, let us not forget, the product of the peoples of Iran and predate Western Civilisation by a Millenium!

They are the Cyrus Declaration which came to us in written form in Cuniform on a remarkably intact cylinder:

Front view of a barrel-shaped clay cylinder resting on a stand. The cylinder is covered with lines of cuneiform text

Written in Akkadian cuneiform script in the name of the Achaemenid king Cyrus the Great. It dates from the 6th century BC and was discovered in the ruins of Babylon in Mesopotamia (modern Iraq) in 1879 during an archaeological expedition sponsored by The British Museum who still present the incredible artefact for the world.

That this document seeks to enshrine in law aspects of Human Rights in an Iranian Monarchy of 2,500 years ago when our Iron Age ancestors were just showing signs of agriculture and wearing woad as they sacrificed each other and had, it seems, no written language nor cohesive governance as a people is a sobering thought!

 

Perhaps it is time that we the peoples of Britain considered the true nature of our own rights and the method of governance of our Country to enshrine our rights and liberties once more with a more ethical and democratic process via a renewed declaration!

Here is the official British Museum translation of the remains of The Cyrus Cylinder:

Translation by Irving Finkel
Assistant Keeper, Department of the Middle East

Read this in Persian (translation from the original text by Shahrokh Razmjou, curator, Department of the Middle East)

Translation of the Cyrus Cylinder

  1. [When … Mar]duk, king of the whole of heaven and earth, the ……. who, in his …, lays waste his …….
  2. [………………………………………………………………]broad ? in intelligence, …… who inspects} (?) the wor]ld quarters (regions)
  3. [……………………………………………………..…] his [first]born (=Belshazzar), a low person was put in charge of his country,
  4. but [……………………………………………………………………….] he set [a (…) counter]feit over them.
  5. He ma[de] a counterfeit of Esagil, [and …..……….]… for Ur and the rest of the cult-cities.
  6. Rites inappropriate to them, [impure] fo[od- offerings ………………………………………………….] disrespectful […] were daily gabbled, and, as an insult,
  7. he brought the daily offerings to a halt; he inter[fered with the rites and] instituted […….] within the sanctuaries. In his mind, reverential fear of Marduk, king of the gods, came to an end.
  8. He did yet more evil to his city every day; … his [people …………….…], he brought ruin on them all by a yoke without relief.
  9. Enlil-of-the-gods became extremely angry at their complaints, and […] their territory.  The gods who lived within them left their shrines,
  10. angry that he had made (them) enter into Shuanna (Babylon).  Ex[alted Marduk, Enlil-of-the-Go]ds, relented.  He changed his mind about all the settlements whose sanctuaries were in ruins,
  11. and the population of the land of Sumer and Akkad who had become like corpses, and took pity on them.  He inspected and checked all the countries,
  12. seeking for the upright king of his choice.  He took the hand of Cyrus, king of the city of Anshan, and called him by his name, proclaiming him aloud for the kingship over all of everything.
  13. He made the land of Guti and all the Median troops prostrate themselves at his feet, while he shepherded in justice and righteousness the black-headed people
  14. whom he had put under his care.  Marduk, the great lord, who nurtures his people, saw with pleasure his fine deeds and true heart,
  15. and ordered that he should go to Babylon  He had him take the road to Tintir (Babylon), and, like a friend and companion, he walked at his side.
  16. His vast troops whose number, like the water in a river, could not be counted, were marching fully-armed at his side.
  17. He had him enter without fighting or battle right into Shuanna; he saved his city Babylon from hardship.  He handed over to him Nabonidus, the king who did not fear him.
  18. All the people of Tintir, of all Sumer and Akkad, nobles and governors, bowed down before him and kissed his feet, rejoicing over his kingship and their faces shone.
  19. The lord through whose help all were rescued from death and who saved them all from distress and hardship, they blessed him sweetly and praised his name.
    ————————————————-
  20. I am Cyrus, king of the universe, the great king, the powerful king, king of Babylon, king of Sumer and Akkad, king of the four quarters of the world,
  21. son of Cambyses, the great king, king of the city of Anshan, grandson of Cyrus, the great king, ki[ng of the ci]ty of Anshan, descendant of Teispes, the great king, king of the city of Anshan,
  22. the perpetual seed of kingship, whose reign Bel (Marduk)and Nabu love, and with whose kingship, to their joy, they concern themselves.  When I went as harbinger of peace i[nt]o Babylon
  23. I founded my sovereign residence within the palace amid celebration and rejoicing.  Marduk, the great lord, bestowed on me as my destiny the great magnanimity of one who loves Babylon, and I every day sought him out in awe.
  24. My vast troops were marching peaceably in Babylon, and the whole of [Sumer] and Akkad had nothing to fear.
  25. I sought the safety of the city of Babylon and all its sanctuaries.  As for the population of Babylon […, w]ho as if without div[ine intention] had endured a yoke not decreed for them,
  26. I soothed their weariness; I freed them from their bonds(?).    Marduk, the great lord,  rejoiced at [my good] deeds,
  27. and he pronounced a sweet blessing over me, Cyrus, the king who fears him, and over Cambyses, the son [my] issue, [and over] my all my troops,
  28. that we might live happily in his presence, in well-being.  At his exalted command, all kings who sit on thrones,
  29. from every quarter, from the Upper Sea to the Lower Sea, those who inhabit [remote distric]ts (and) the kings of the land of Amurru who live in tents, all of them,
  30. brought their weighty tribute into Shuanna, and kissed my feet. From [Shuanna] I sent back to their places to the city of Ashur and Susa,
  31. Akkad, the land of Eshnunna, the city of Zamban, the city of Meturnu, Der, as far as the border of the land of Guti – the sanctuaries across the river Tigris – whose shrines had earlier become dilapidated,
  32. the gods who lived therein, and made permanent sanctuaries for them.  I collected together all of their people and returned them to their settlements,
  33. and the gods of the land of Sumer and Akkad which Nabonidus – to the fury of the lord of the gods – had brought into Shuanna, at the command of Marduk, the great lord,
  34. I returned them unharmed to their cells, in the sanctuaries that make them happy.  May all the gods that I returned to their sanctuaries,
  35. every day before Bel and Nabu, ask for a long life for me, and mention my good deeds, and say to Marduk, my lord, this: “Cyrus, the king who fears you, and Cambyses his son,
  36. may they be the provisioners of our shrines until distant (?) days, and the population of Babylon call blessings on my kingship. I have enabled all the lands to live in peace.
  37. Every day I increased by [… ge]ese, two ducks and ten pigeons the [former offerings] of  geese, ducks and pigeons.
  38. I strove to strengthen the defences of the wall Imgur-Enlil, the great wall of Babylon,
  39. and [I completed] the quay of baked brick on the bank of the moat which an earlier king had bu[ilt but not com]pleted its work.
  40. [I …… which did not surround the city] outside, which no earlier king had built, his workforce, the levee [from his land, in/int]o Shuanna.
  41. [… ……………………………………………………………..with bitum]en and baked brick I built anew, and [completed] its [work].
  42. [……………………………………………………..] great [doors of cedarwood] with bronze cladding,
  43. [and I installed] all their doors, threshold slabs and door fittings with copper parts.   [……………………..] I saw within it an inscription of Ashurbanipal, a king who preceded me;
  44. [……………………………………………………………] his … Marduk, the great lord, creator (?) of [ … ]
  45. […………………………………………….] my [… I presented] as a gift…………………] your pleasure  forever.
