European Union MP: Its time to give back to the Kurds 19.07.2014 Hawar Abdulrazaq BasNews, Erbil
British member of European Parliament Charles Tannock has called on the international community to support Iraq’s Kurds.
In Wednesday’s parliament session on Iraq, the British Conservative party MEP recognized Kurdistan’s determinations for independence in his speech. “I understand Kurdish pleas for independence, because the thing the Kurds now want the West promised them in the Treaty of Sèvres. Now is the right time to implement that promise,” said Tannock, referring to the 1920 treaty in which Kurds were promised an independent state.
He also criticized Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and his government’s policies, saying “the Al-Maliki sectarian approach” had driven the Sunni community into an allegiance with the Islamic State of Iraq and Sham (ISIS).
Following parliament discussion on Iraq’s situation, members of parliament appeared to take a new stance regarding the Kurdistan Region and the upcoming referendum. “Iraq is close to division so let’s support the Kurdish model, which has been a successful and democratic model,” added Tannock. Tannock also acknowledged the efforts of the Kurdish Peshmerga, calling them ”heroes”.
Tannock is a long-time friend of the Kurds and according to him the Sykes-Picot accord was a historical mistake that can only be rectified though the establishment of a Kurdish state.

...CPR - Todd's fault?! No infrastructure - Todd's fault?! Fund raising - Todd's fault?! Share dilution - Todd's fault?! Iraq on the brink - Todd's fault?! KRG/Iraqi politics - Todd's fault?! Britain/France and Sykes–Picot - Todd's fault?! USA foreign policy - Todd's fault?! ISIS - Todd's fault?! Didn't sell at £4 - Todd's fault?! ETAMIC - Todd's fault?! Ashti Hawrami - Todd's fault?! The fall of Mesopotamia - Todd's Fault?! Gertrude Bell - Todd's fault?! Well the man's still there! But now in an ivory tower. Are we happy now? What next? - Blame Murray? - Jihad and the coming of Al-Mahdi and Al-Malhama - Murray’s fault…and on and on and on we go!
ahhh (big sigh!) I hope the distractions are over, and as a company GKP can move on from this sorry chapter. It seems to me, some people who had/have a lot of money at stake and didn't sell when they had the chance at £4 even £2, who were expecting a takeover, had their party p1ssed on and they've never quite gotten over it. Much respect to those who have! and didn't resort to spitting dummies out and getting involved in wreaking havoc in the boardroom! Or biatching and sniping on and on and on. Some, sanely, quietly sold and moved on. Did no-one stop and think that the KRG/MNR might just know what they were sat on and have a say in who controls their oil!? Oh dear, briefly back in 2011/2012 Todd was everyone's hero…so he got excited to have been at the helm of a junior explorer behind the biggest onshore oil discovery in decades. So he got carried away with enthusiasm, paid himself a footballers salary for a couple of years (which was rightly, later reined in). Oh the glory days. Then the tide turned (or the pump stopped) dummies were spat out of prams all over the place from Neds to HNWI's to ordinary folk as they realised the dream was not going to come to pass. Even when a takeover was denied officially, people still hung on to the dream. As Cannacord and HSBC published sell targets around £2 people hung on as the shareprice indeed hit £2 and carried on falling!! A bit like Todd really from hero to near zero! (well 72.25p) So when GKP moved to the main listing and a CPR was done on a percentage of the field, it was all Todd's fault for misleading everyone 'cos Shaikan had mysteriously shrunk! What happened to the excitement of 2011/2012, Todd on CNN - every facial expression analyzed, every gesture, every glance of the eye, smile on his face. Oh, and when it all went pear shaped, and it was revealed Gokana sold near the top and those broker 'sell' targets came to pass and everyone was up in arms - 'TODD'S FAULT' everyone shouted. Bring me his head!!! Shouldn't you have sold! How fickle, how embarrassingly obvious. All the tampering from people who think they know everything, allude to inside info etc..should the rest of us praise your narcissism? Well you know better? Who was it pumping?! Who are the turncoats?!! Some, so much in denial that they have to form shareholder action groups as they 'go kicking and screaming' for **** years about the injustice, what, coulda, shoulda, woulda been. Anyway the rhetoric has been ridiculous...
Oilcan and his two-faced banshee were/are part of a deliberate attempt to undermine and devalue this company and the hopes and aspirations of many ordinary punters who have staked hard earned cash on a once in a lifetime opportunity. To this end sundry BB's have become infested with cowardly keyboard warriors (Durby, ssmj, ILS), the gutless mouthpiece foot soldiers of the corrupt. Shaggers you have been rumbled and humiliated by the KRG. Have you not the semblance of shame to crawl back under the rocks from whence you came, or do your masters have more work for the lickspittles?
I have already given my view on the board becoming unbalanced towards last years intake with the threat of Todd and Ewan going. I am not privy to the boardroom but it is possible that Asher and the others had discussed something contrary to KRG policy which may have been possible to force through with an unbalanced BOD.
