"Mr President, the EU has no competence over sport and nor should it. The Champions League and the G14 clubs across the UK, Spain and Italy, oppose the EU intervention in football broadcasting rights. Bayern Munich is for it; English clubs are against it, yet a UK Sports Minister, Richard Caborn, is here to lobby for the Germans. So much for British interests! Amendment 25, until it was sensibly withdrawn, ordered the flying of the EU flag at Champions League and European Championship matches. Had they thought about Switzerland, who will co-host the European finals in 2008? The fact that the Champions League includes Russia, Turkey and Norway? None are in the EU and there is no EU team. The same amendment also demanded that the EU anthem be played at these matches. But ‘Ode to Joy’ is a complete misnomer to 41% of the population, and 58% of the British population. You know, Schiller wrote ‘Ode to Joy’ in 1785, and his words ‘Oh friends, no more these sounds’, may have been controversial then, given that Beethoven was unfortunately already disabled by deafness when he wrote the Ninth Symphony, but they are appropriate today. And, as for ‘Do you fall in worship, you millions?’, well I can tell you, over 200 million people say ‘no’."@ro18

"Hr. formand! EU har med rette ikke nogen kompetence på sportsområdet. Champions League og G14-klubberne i Det Forenede Kongerige, Spanien og Italien er imod EU's indgriben i rettighederne til tv-transmission af fodboldkampe. Bayern Munich er for, men engelske klubber er imod, og alligevel støtter den britiske sportsminister, Richard Caborn, her i dag tyskerne. Så meget for britiske interesser! Ifølge ændringsforslag 25, der fornuftigt nok blev trukket tilbage, skulle EU-flaget vaje over Champions League-kampe og europamesterskabskampe i fodbold. Havde de tænkt på Schweiz, der også skal være værtsland for de europæiske finalekampe i 2008, og den kendsgerning, at Champions League også omfatter Rusland, Tyrkiet og Norge? Ingen af disse lande er medlem af EU, og der er ikke noget EU-hold. Ifølge samme ændringsforslag skulle EU's hymne også afspilles under disse kampe. Men "Ode til Glæden" er fuldstændig misvisende for 41 % af befolkningen og for 58 % af den britiske befolkning. Som bekendt skrev Schiller "Ode til Glæden" i 1785, og hans ord "Oh friends, no more these sounds" har muligvis været kontroversielle dengang, da Beethoven uheldigvis allerede var døv, da han skrev den niende symfoni, men de er passende i dag. Hvad angår sætningen "Do you fall in worship, you millions", kan jeg i hvert fald sige, at over 200 millioner mennesker svarer benægtende."@da2

". Arvoisa puhemies, EU:lla ei ole toimivaltaa urheilun alalla eikä pidäkään olla. Mestarien liiga ja Yhdistyneen kuningaskunnan, Espanjan ja Italian G 14-seurat vastustavat EU:n puuttumista jalkapallon televisiointioikeuksiin. Bayern München kannattaa sitä, mutta Englannin jalkapalloseurat vastustavat sitä. Tästä huolimatta Yhdistyneen kuningaskunnan urheiluministeri Richard Caborn lobbaa täällä Saksan puolesta. Vähät väliä Yhdistyneen kuningaskunnan eduista! Tarkistuksessa 25, ennen kuin se järkevästi peruutettiin, velvoitettiin nostamaan EU:n lippu salkoon mestarien liigassa ja Euroopan mestaruuskilpailuissa. Ajateltiinko tässä ollenkaan Sveitsiä, joka jakaa Euroopan mestaruuskilpailujen finaalin isännyyden vunna 2008? Tuliko mieleen, että mestarien liigaan kuuluvat myös Venäjä, Turkki ja Norja? Mikään niistä ei kuulu EU:hun, eikä niillä ole EU:n joukkuetta. Samassa tarkistuksessa vaadittiin lisäksi EU:n hymnin soittamista näissä kilpailuissa. "Oodi ilolle" on kuitenkin täysin väärä hymni 41 prosentille väestöstä ja 58 prosentille Yhdistyneen kuningaskunnan väestöstä. Te tiedätte Schillerin kirjoittaneen Oodin ilolle vuonna 1785, ja hänen sanoituksensa "Oi ystävät, ei näitä ääniä" oli kiistelty tuolloin, kun otetaan huomioon, että Beethoven oli valitettavasti jo vammautunut kuuroutumisen vuoksi, kun hän kirjoitti yhdeksännen sinfoniansa. Nämä sanat ovat kuitenkin täysin paikallaan tänään. Mitä tulee sanoituksen "miljoonien syleilyssä" -osioon, voin todeta teille yli 200 miljoonan vastustavan tätä."@fi7

"Herr talman! EU har inga befogenheter i fråga om sport och bör heller inte ha det.

Engelska klubbar är emot den, även om Storbritanniens idrottsminister Richard Caborn är här för att bedriva lobbyverksamhet för tyskarna. Så var det med de brittiska intressena! I ändringsförslag 25 föreskrevs, innan det förnuftigt nog togs tillbaka, att EU-flaggan skulle vara hissad vid Champions League-matcher och EM-matcher. Hade de tänkt på Schweiz, som kommer att vara ett av värdländerna för EM-finalerna 2008? Hade man tänkt på att Champions League också omfattar Ryssland, Turkiet och Norge? Inget av dessa länder är med i EU. Det finns inte något EU-lag. I samma ändringsförslag framfördes också att EU-hymnen skulle spelas vid dessa matcher. Men ”Till glädjen” är en totalt felaktig beteckning för 41 procent av befolkningen och 58 procent av den brittiska befolkningen. Schiller skrev ”Till glädjen” 1785, och hans ord ”o vänner, låt oss ej mera höra dessa toner” kan ha varit omstridda då, mot bakgrund av att Beethoven dessvärre redan var döv när han komponerade sin nionde symfoni, men de är passande i dag.

Hadden de indieners aan Zwitserland gedacht, dat in 2008 samen met Oostenrijk het eindtoernooi organiseert? Wisten ze dat ook Rusland, Turkije en Noorwegen, die geen lid van de EU zijn, in de Champions League spelen? De EU heeft zelf geen team. In datzelfde amendement was ook voorgesteld om voor die wedstrijden het Europese volkslied te spelen. De "Ode an die Freude" is voor 41 procent van de Europeanen en voor 58 procent van de Britten zeker geen reden tot vreugde. U weet ongetwijfeld dat Schiller "Ode an die Freude" in 1785 heeft geschreven. Zijn woorden "O Freunde, nicht diese Töne!" waren indertijd misschien wat onfortuinlijk, omdat Beethoven helaas al doof was toen hij de negende symfonie schreef, maar nu zijn ze wel passend.

Η Μπάγερν Μονάχου τάσσεται υπέρ, ενώ οι αγγλικοί σύλλογοι τάσσονται κατά· εντούτοις, ένα υπουργός Αθλητισμού του Ηνωμένου Βασιλείου, ο Richard Caborn, βρίσκεται εδώ για να προωθήσει τα συμφέροντα των Γερμανών. Θαυμάσια υποστηρίζονται τα βρετανικά συμφέροντα! Η τροπολογία 25, η οποία εν τέλει ευτυχώς αποσύρθηκε, επέβαλλε την ανάρτηση της σημαίας της ΕΕ στους αγώνες του Κυπέλλου Πρωταθλητριών και του Ευρωπαϊκού Πρωταθλήματος. Έλαβαν μήπως υπόψη την Ελβετία, η οποία θα είναι συνδιοργανωτής του ευρωπαϊκού τελικού το 2008; Το γεγονός μήπως ότι στο Κύπελλο Πρωταθλητριών συμμετέχουν η Ρωσία, η Τουρκία και η Νορβηγία; Καμία από αυτές τις χώρες δεν είναι μέλος της ΕΕ και, επιπλέον, δεν υπάρχει κάποια ομάδα που να εκπροσωπεί όλη την ΕΕ. Με την ίδια τροπολογία απαιτούνταν επίσης η ανάκρουση του ύμνου της ΕΕ σε αυτούς τους αγώνες. Ωστόσο, η «Ωδή στη χαρά» δεν εκφράζει καθόλου τα συναισθήματα του 41% του πληθυσμού – ή του 58% του πληθυσμού στην περίπτωση της Βρετανίας. Όπως ξέρετε, ο Σίλερ έγραψε την «Ωδή στη χαρά» το 1785, και οι φράσεις του «Ω, φίλοι, ας σταματήσουν αυτοί οι ήχοι», μπορεί να ήταν διφορούμενοι τότε, δεδομένου ότι ο Μπετόβεν, δυστυχώς, είχε ήδη χάσει την ακοή του όταν συνέθεσε την Ενάτη Συμφωνία, είναι όμως πολύ εύστοχες σήμερα. Όσον αφορά δε το «Κλίνετε το γόνυ, εκατομμύρια εσείς;», μπορώ να σας διαβεβαιώσω ότι περισσότεροι από 200 εκατομμύρια πολίτες λένε «όχι»."@el10

Vous savez, Schiller a écrit l’ en 1785 et si ses paroles «Mes amis, pas sur ce ton-là!» ont pu être controversées à l’époque, dans la mesure où Beethoven était malheureusement déjà atteint de surdité au moment où il écrivit la elles sont de circonstance aujourd’hui. Et en ce qui concerne les paroles «Vous prosternez-vous, millions d’êtres?», laissez-moi vous dire que 200 millions de personnes répondent: «non»!"@fr8

". Herr Präsident! Die EU ist nicht für den Sport zuständig und sollte es auch nicht sein. Die Champions League und die G 14-Vereine im Vereinigten Königreich, in Spanien und in Italien sind gegen die Einmischung der EU in Fußballübertragungsrechte. Bayern München ist dafür; die englischen Vereine sind dagegen, und dennoch schlägt sich der britische Sportminister, Richard Caborn, hier auf die Seite der Deutschen. So viel zu den britischen Interessen! Änderungsantrag 25, der klugerweise zurückgezogen wurde, sah das Hissen der europäischen Flagge bei Spielen der Champions League und der Europameisterschaft vor. Hatte man denn an die Schweiz gedacht, die 2008 Gastgeber der Europameisterschaftsendrunde sein wird? Oder daran, dass in der Champions League auch Russland, die Türkei und Norwegen dabei sind? Keines dieser Länder gehört zur EU, und es gibt keine EU-Mannschaft. In demselben Änderungsantrag wurde außerdem das Abspielen der europäischen Hymne bei diesen Spielen gefordert. Doch die „Ode an die Freude“ ist für 41 % der Bevölkerung und 58 % der britischen Bevölkerung völlig verfehlt. Wissen Sie, Schiller schrieb die „Ode an die Freude“ im Jahre 1785, und seine Worte „O Freunde, nicht diese Töne!“ mögen damals mehrdeutig gewesen sein, war Beethoven doch leider schon mit Taubheit geschlagen, als er die Neunte Sinfonie schrieb, aber heute sind sie angebracht. Und was „Ihr stürzt nieder, Millionen?“ betrifft, nun, da kann ich Ihnen sagen, mehr als 200 Millionen Menschen sagen Nein."@de9

". Signor Presidente, l’UE non ha alcuna competenza in materia di sport, né dovrebbe averla. La e i del G-14 nel Regno Unito, in Spagna e in Italia si oppongono all’intervento dell’UE nei diritti di telediffusione del calcio. Il è a favore; i inglesi sono contrari, e tuttavia un ministro dello Sport del Regno Unito, Richard Caborn, è qui a fare pressione a favore dei tedeschi. Quanta attenzione per gli interessi britannici! L’emendamento n. 25, finché non è stato giustamente ritirato, ordinava di issare la bandiera dell’UE nelle partite di e dei Campionati europei. Non si è pensato alla Svizzera, che ospiterà anch’essa le finali degli europei nel 2008? O al fatto che la comprende Russia, Turchia e Norvegia? Nessuno di questi paesi fa parte dell’UE e non esiste una squadra dell’UE. Nello stesso emendamento si chiedeva di suonare l’inno dell’UE in occasione di queste partite. Ma l’ suona improprio al 41 per cento della popolazione, e al 58 per cento della popolazione britannica. Sapete, Schiller scrisse l’ nel 1785, e le sue parole “Oh amici, non questi suoni” saranno state controverse allora, dato che Beethoven purtroppo era già afflitto dalla sordità quando scrisse la Nona sinfonia, ma oggi sono perfettamente appropriate. E, quanto a “Vi prostrate in adorazione, moltitudini?”, posso dirvi con certezza che più di 200 milioni di persone rispondono “No”."@it12
