#G337* – The EU has become a lumbering, unaccountable mess,


it is increasingly clear the EU scam has failed – any organisation where the servants steal €2.4 BILLION from their masters just to tell their masters how damned clever the servants are is clearly a broken structure, a failure of ignoble proportions and I for one am sorry that Norris McWhirter did not live long enough to enter the EU in his Guinness Book of Records as the largest scam in history and possibly the biggest failure before inevitably he would have been forced to supercede it with the names Paschauri & Gore for the largest scam and most spectacular con ever pulled by man – and tho think they were so corrupt they accepted a Nobel Prize – was that for the biggest theft in history or the largest con?

Brussels has broken our power to rule
The EU has become a lumbering, unaccountable mess.

Muddled: The inflated engine of our EU government rolls on, more power-crazed than ever

Muddled: The inflated engine of our EU government rolls on, more power-crazed than ever
The latest findings of Eurobarometer, the EU’s own polling organisation, show that less than half its citizens now believe it is a “good thing”. In many countries, its popularity is at record lows, and only 19 per cent see the EU as “democratic” (in Britain, Finland and Latvia this is as low as 10 per cent).
What makes this particularly ironic is that in 2001 the EU’s leaders issued their Laeken Declaration, admitting that the EU faced a crisis through its “democratic deficit”. Their remedy was the process designed to give Europe a “constitution”. After eight years of negotiation, obfuscation, lies and referendum-reverses, they got the constitution they wanted (although they had to disguise it as the Lisbon Treaty). The upshot of this tortuous attempt to “bring Europe closer to its peoples” is that those peoples see the EU as less democratic than ever.
Meanwhile, armed with its new powers, the inflated engine of our EU government rolls on, more power-crazed than ever. It is spending £800 million on setting up its new worldwide diplomatic service, with 100 of its officials earning more than our own shrunken and virtually irrelevant Foreign Secretary William Hague. Also now on the table are the EU’s options for imposing its own taxes, the front-runner being a tax on financial transactions to which Britain, as a world financial centre, would contribute 70 per cent, more than 300 billion euros a year. Britain and the City will also be hit hardest by the EU’s seizure of control over the regulation of financial services.
Our Chancellor, George Osborne, has just conceded the EU’s right to “supervise” the contents of national budgets, taking away much of a power Parliament has exercised for centuries. Britain also seems likely to lose what remains of the EU budget rebate won by Mrs Thatcher, putting up our yearly contributions to the EU by another £3 billion – even though, for every £1 we get back from Brussels for our farmers, we already hand over £2 to farmers in other countries.
Theresa May, our Home Secretary, weakly claims that she wants reform of the European Arrest Warrant, when half of all those affected by it are being extradited from Britain. The EU’s response, in effect, is that we agreed to this travesty of justice and we must learn to live with it.
But no current issue better illustrates the bizarre nature of the system to which we have surrendered the power to run our country than the chaos inflicted on our hospitals by the enforced application of the EU’s working time directive. Led by John Black, head of the Royal College of Surgeons, medical professionals protest that this is threatening many patients’ lives.
Even the European Commission freely admits, in a recent “communication” to the European Parliament and sundry others, that its rules are, in practice, highly “unsatisfactory” and in need of urgent reform. But it adds that attempts to amend the directives have been going on since 2004 and that any chance of getting the reforms needed will involve so many consultations and negotiations that little is likely to happen for years.
Of course, if we still had the power to run our own country, this crisis in the NHS and much else besides could be sorted out within months, But since our Government seems quite happy to continue handing over even more powers to this crazy system, there is nothing we can do about it – until eventually the whole lumbering, labyrinthine, unaccountable, undemocratic mess implodes under the weight of its own contradictions.

British Politicians with pens and treachery, in pursuit of their own agenda and greed, have done more damage to the liberty, freedoms, rights and democracy of the British peoples than any army in over 1,000 years.

The disastrous effects of British politicians selling Britain into the thrall of foreign rule by the EU for their own personal rewards has damaged the well-being of Britain more than the armies of Hitler and the Franco – German – Italian axis of 1939 – 1945.

be minded that this evil little functionary Hans-Gert Poettering is the unelected President of the European Parliament, is respond to a speech made by The President of The EUropean Union, Czech Republic President Vaclav Klaus, in which he deplored the democratic deficit of the EU.

The arrogance and hubris of this strident little parasite Poettering has all the skills and spite, venom and self importance of the odious house painter the barbaric and murderous little Adolf Hitler.

Vaclav Klaus is the President of the EU – by what authority does this odious little jerk challenge him?

Do study the text in which he makes it VERY clear that the EU is a dishonest and corrupt organisation making over 75% of ALL of our laws – it is already proven that it is undemocratic in ANY meaningfull way – a Dictatorship of Snivil Cervants and self important little parasites ;like this odious little Poettering.

Never forget that there has NEVER been a British Politician who has not claimed in his election speeches and manifesto that The Common Agricultural Policy is wrong and should be changed – NOT ONE.

In the 40 years we have been vassals to this corrupt body British Politicians have not managed to change one comma, full stop, word or phrase in the CAP.

There is absolutely no point in voting for an MEP as they can not and do not have any say – they just stuff their pockets and all too often their mouths and the staff at our expense. We have just been told by the odious Poettering that our Westminster MPs are also a waste of space as over 75% of our laws are IMPOSED upon Westminster by the corrupt, centralised and undemocratic EU.

Don’t ever vote for a politician again until these United Kingdoms are free of the EU.

Make EVERY election a referendum on the EU until we are out –

Write on your ballot paper:
