EAU NO!

By David Vance On November 20th, 2011 at 8:55 am

The EU is such a farce that I am continually amazed that anyone with any sense takes it in anyway seriously. Does drinking water hydrate you? No, says the EU.

“EU officials concluded that, following a three-year investigation, there was no evidence to prove the previously undisputed fact. Producers of bottled water are now forbidden by law from making the claim and will face a two-year jail sentence if they defy the edict, which comes into force in the UK next month.

Last night, critics claimed the EU was at odds with both science and common sense. Conservative MEP Roger Helmer said: “This is stupidity writ large. “The euro is burning, the EU is falling apart and yet here they are: highly-paid, highly-pensioned officials worrying about the obvious qualities of water and trying to deny us the right to say what is patently true. “If ever there were an episode which demonstrates the folly of the great European project then this is it.”

I’ll drink a glass, of water, to that.

SPEAKING TRUTH TO TECHOCRATS!

A brilliant j’accuse from UKIP Leader Nigel Farage, you have to admire his courage for telling them to their faces what he thinks of them. Look at the faces of Von Rompuy and Barroso.

CAN’T PAY AND WON’T BE ALLOWED TO PAY.

I see that the European Commission is considering tough new proposals to curb the pay and bonuses that banks can hand out to staff working across the European Union.

The plans, which are likely to go further than those proposed so far in the UK, would meet opposition from the City of London, which claims cutting benefit packages would result in an exodus of talent to Asia and America. But the new restrictions could not be blocked by the Government if a majority of other European countries vote in favour of them.

It seems to me that this scheme from the EC is flawed on at least THREE levels;

1. It seeks to dictate to private business what it can pay out its employees. That’s tyranny, folks.

2. It seeks to impose this plan on National Governements who may oppose it, such as the UK. That’s tyranny, folks.

3. It seeks to warp the market in the EU and as such inflict massive financial damage across the crumbling eurozone. That’s insanity, folks.

Throw in the ongoing advance of the disastrous Tobin Tax, supported by the fool Cameron, and you have a recipe for financial meltdown. Luckily, we don’t have a recession. Hang on…

One explanation of the term ‘Democracy’ is as the definition:-

‘A system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives.’

Another explanation is that it is a form of Government where everyone has at least a chance to have their say in how they are governed!

I wonder if the high-and-mighty overlords of the European Union have heard of that strange, distant and seemingly superfluous term?

Shock; Horror!

A European politician threw the entire brigade of European politicians into turmoil last night by deciding to do what every other politician from that same Europe has failed to do; which is to ask the people who voted for his Party if they agreed with the policies of austerity and loss of sovereignty introduced by his Government. Our own bunch, Clegg, Milliband, Cameron, liars and thieves all, declare in ringing tones that they would ‘ask the people’. But when they have an opportunity to actually ‘ask’, the sounds of heels as they thudded on the boards taking them away overcame all other noises!

So here is a toast to Mr. George Papandreou, possibly a mediocre politician, possibly an adroit and careful survivor in the seas of deceit and corruption swirling around Greek and European politics.

Or should it be a toast to the ‘Only Honest Man in European Politics’?

DEUTSCHLAND UBER ALLES?

Interesting post from Rodney Atkinson here…

“The German political class always knew they wanted a crisis to justify the final takeover of the nation states of Europe. A friend of mine heard a German Central Bank director say so. But Germany miscalculated and they have unleashed, not a crisis to justify more power over others, but a holocaust which will consume them as well.

Those who recall the film The Bedford Incident (where an American warship captain pursues a Russian submarine armed with nuclear weapons) will recognise the situation. His fanatical pursuit of his prey (in peacetime) has not just the submarine on edge but his own crew. He will listen to no advice. His argument with a fellow officer leads him to utter words which a crew member understands means “fire one”. The Russian submarine realises he will be wiped out and fires a nuclear weapon back. The bullying, cocksure American Captain is now speechless and powerless and the film ends in a mushroom cloud.

Eurozone politicians are like the about-to-be-annihilated American warship captain – powerless in the face of a destruction they brought on themslves. They know they cannot escape and they are turning on those (especially the British) who refused to kowtow to their imperial Euro. Those who warned them cannot now help.

The massive political power even they would need to make the final steps to create their empire out the rubble they caused is no longer available because their electorates have awoken to the truth, because the disasters are coming too quickly for them to act and the debt crisis has destroyed so many countries who now – thanks to the hideous Euro and EU rules – are prohibited from rescuing themselves.”

If at first eu don’t succeed!

AN UNREPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY…

By David Vance On October 25th, 2011 at 10:12 am

We live in a modern representative democracy where we elect politicians to represent our views in Parliament. Then again, we don’t. According to the BBC’s print arm “The Guardian”…

Conservative rebels pushing for an in-or-out referendum on Europe are riding the tide of public opinion, according to a Guardian/ICM poll. Some 70% of voters want a vote on Britain’s EU membership, and by a substantial nine-point margin respondents say they would vote for UK withdrawal. Forty-nine per cent would vote to get Britain out of Europe, against just 40% who prefer to stay in. There is a clear majority for staging a referendum in all social classes and regions of the UK. Men and women are similarly keen, although rather more Conservative (71%) than Labour voters (65%) are calling for a poll.

Got that? So even the EU-loving left wing Guardian suggests that the OVERWHELMING number of British people want a referendum on the EU and most would vote for withdrawal.

Contrast that with what happened in The Commons last evening when the overwhelming majority of MP’s voted AGAINST the consideration of such a referendum. 111 out of 600+ showed the patriotic zeal voters expect and supported the idea of holding a referendum but 483 said NO to the idea of letting the people speak. They much prefer to have us mute.

Let’s face it – we live in a benign tyranny and when it comes to our never ending subjugation in the rancid EU, we will not be allowed to speak via our elected politicians. What options does that leave? Cameron has shown himself to be toothless on this, just one more Europhile dressed in Eurosceptics clothing.

COMPARE AND CONTRAST…

Here’s Lib-Dem Leader Nick Clegg in 2008…

In a passionate intervention in the debate on the new Lisbon treaty, which is undergoing lengthy parliamentary scrutiny, the pro-European Liberal Democrat leader says it is time to stage a referendum on whether Britain should stay in the EU.

And in 2011?

The three big parties at Westminster have told their MPs to vote against a motion calling for a referendum to be held on UK membership of the EU. The Conservatives, Liberal Democrats and Labour will all ask their MPs to oppose the move at a debate on Monday.

U-turn if you want, the UK media won’ t hold you responsible.

Repeat after me; We must obey the EU….

THE RIGHT TO BE UNCOMPETITIVE?

By David Vance On October 8th, 2011 at 5:39 am

The utter detachment from reality of the Eurocrats is manifest in this news;

Every mother who returns to work full-time must be allowed ‘breastfeeding breaks’ of up to two hours each day, according to the latest  rules from Brussels. Under proposals being considered by MEPs, mothers would also be given the right to work part-time for a year after having a baby, and be entitled to 20 weeks’ maternity leave on full pay.

More Eutopian unfunded coveyancing of artificial “rights” which will cost business ££millions and ensure that the EU becomes even MORE uncompetitive. But what does that matter to those insulated from all reality thanks to the taxes they steal from us? Further these “rights” will be instantly seized by the EU’s already bloated beyond bursting point.
