It is absolutely ludicrous for Pat Cox to present himself as an alternative candidate for the Irish presidency. Mr Cox still hasn’t explained his presence at the secret and elitist Bilderberg Meeting in May 2003 at the invitation of Peter Sutherland,
This is the same Pat Cox, who while President of the European Parliament agreed with Romano Prodi that the investigative report into wholesale abuse and corruption of the EU budget, called the EUrostat scandal, be kept secret.
‘Only a select group of MEPs were permitted to see the audit and report, and then only in a darkened room, under surveillance from security guards, having been denied the use of a photocopier, camera or even mobile phone, and after having been forced to sign a declaration promising not to reveal the contents of the report. When a hearing was held to discuss the results, it was Cox and Prodi who ensured that the results of the use of taxpayers’ money never became public. He is a member of the Comite d’Honneur of the Institute of European Affairs.
In 2006 he was elected President of European Movement, an international pro European lobby association.
In June 2009 Pat Cox temporarily stepped down as President and took over the position of the campaign director for the pro Lisbon treaty initiative, Ireland for Europe.
Pat Cox is a paid advisor for Microsoft, Michelin and lobbying consultancy APCO.
He is also lobbyist for Pfizer the Pharmaceutical giant, who were recently hit with a record US court fine in the amount of $2.3 Billion for healthcare fraud.
Mr Cox has also been involved with two lobby firms that are known. One “Strategic Consulting firm “CAPA Ltd” and “European Integration Solutions”, Mr Cox also enjoyed the fruits of having the top job in Europe “President of the European Parliament” – that’s a big job with a big salary. Yes my friends this is an Insider ,”The perfect insider” and judging by the way he is promoting himself he obviously believes we the little people of Ireland will be forever gratefully to him for taking the time out of his busy schedule and will consent to live in the park for the next seven years. While he’s at it, he might as well have the next Bilderberg meeting at the Áras. Heck why not have Goldman Sacks rent a few offices in the park as well so then Cox can have breakfast every morning with them!
Pat Cox Hell No!
