BritMeatDM_468x345.jpgDid you see that the "Made in Britain" stamp favoured by many British manufacturers and producers is under threat from where else but the EU? Proposals to switch to a Europe-wide ‘Made in the EU’ labelling system will be discussed by the European Commission next month. If implemented it would leave British consumers unable to tell where the contents of their shopping basket come from in the EU. The rule would apply even if the final product is based on imported foodstuffs. Only meat would be exempt, so that goods such as Danish bacon and Parma ham could be identified by their origin.

From an EU perspective this is very logical. It seeks to subvert the identity of the Nation state at every juncture so stripping away the "Made in Britain/France/Germany etc" label helps advance that cause. It also shows that every outward and visible form of our British identity is vulnerable whilst we remain in the European Union. Only way forward – and that’s to get out. But our political elite have sold their souls for the EU.

  1. Calling the clique which rules us an ‘elite’ gives false meaning to the word. There is nothing inherently wrong with ‘elite’ because it means ‘the best’. The 15 rugby union players fielded by England in the World Cup final or the 11 football players fielded by Scotland against Italy were the best – the elite – of the countries in that sport, and those ålayers were selected on merit.
    Peter Hain, David Miliband, et al …. is this an ‘elite’? And who voted for them anyway?

    This latest ploy by the EU and the traitors within our midst is another step to eliminate the very idea of our nation and nationhood. The clique will argur that it is "in our national interest". How can it be in the national interest to no longer be a nation?

  2. Post all the bans British meat would probably fare better under the new regulations. The devastating legacy of that fiasco will take some time to go. 6 of one half a dozen…

  3. What next? An EU national anthem?

    Sorry, I forgot that the Ode to Joy already fills that slot. Soon we’ll all have to learn the words…

  4. German original:
    Freude, schöner Götterfunken,
    Tochter aus Elysium!
    Wir betreten feuertrunken,
    Himmlische, Dein Heiligtum.
    Deine Zauber binden wieder,
    Was die Mode streng geteilt,[1]
    Alle Menschen werden Brüder,[1]
    Wo Dein sanfter Flügel weilt.

    Chor.
    Seid umschlungen, Millionen!
    Diesen Kuß der ganzen Welt!
    Brüder, überm Sternenzelt
    Muß ein lieber Vater wohnen!

    English translation:
    Joy, thou source of light immortal,
    Daughter of Elysium!
    Touched with fire, to the portal,
    Of thy radiant shrine, we come.
    Your sweet magic, frees all others,
    Held in custom’s rigid rings,
    All men on earth become brothers,
    In the haven of your wings.

    Chorus
    Be embraced, you millions!
    This kiss for the entire world!
    Brothers, above the starry canopy
    Must a loving Father reside.

  5. Be embraced, you millions!
    This kiss for the entire world!

    As I thought, communist internationalist piffle.

  6. Actually the poem was written in 1785, 63 years before Marx wrote The Communist Manifesto.

    But don’t let me stop you from displaying your rightworld ignorance.

  7. What most do not seem to comprehend is the lie behind the statement "Made in the E.U."

    Long time now, if any importer of any item made outside the E.U. wanted a better signal, all he has to do is import it, or them in bulk, and have the items individually packaged in a member State. He then, because ‘work’ on the afore-mentioned goods has been carried out within the E.U., the Importer is now entitled to splash across his packaging ‘Made in the E.U.’!

    The Brussels bureaucracy wrote the original rules, and they re-write them as often as their buddies ask them too!

  8. A "Made in EU" label would harm the European economy.

    A German made car or other advanced piece of machinery is sold a premium, as does my set of Wushhof knives. But "Made in EU" would mean nothing.

    Ditto a high quality Italian tie. Or my French and Italian wines, though I guess the other labeling would make origins clear.

    Slap a "Made in EU" label on everything, and people may start to think that the wine is Irish, the car Bulgarian, the fine mens suit or women’s dress from God knows where.

    That hurts all consumers and nearly all producers. It won’t help the eastern Europeans and it will hurt places like Germany other countries that have a terrific and well-deserved reputation for making certain products very well.

  9. The devolution and push for an independent Scotland is also part of the Grand Plan. After all, how can a ‘United Europe’ contain a ‘United Kingdom’? Floods of immigration also seek to dilute national identity further.

  10. Peter –

    I can’t imagine where the image of the uptight Leftist with no sense of humour came from.
