They had a dream

Herman van Rompuy Berlin on 9th November 2010

“We have together to fight the danger of a new euro-scepticism. This is no longer the monopoly of a few countries. In every member state, there are people who believe their country can survive alone in the globalised world. It is more than an illusion: it is a lie!”

Quoting wartime US president Franklin Roosevelt, he said that the “biggest enemy of Europe today is fear and that this ultimately could lead to war. Fear leads to egoism, egoism leads to nationalism, and nationalism leads to war,” he said. “Today’s nationalism is often not a positive feeling of pride of one’s own identity, but a negative feeling of apprehension of the others. Fear of ‘enemies’ within our borders and beyond our borders. It is a feeling all over Europe, not of a majority, but everywhere present.”

Riots in Tunisia and Libya have certainly sparked anxious feelings of Nationalism, not in Britain but in those countries whose greatest desire was echoed above by the unelected President of the European Union. Italy and France have urged the EU to make changes to the Schengen Treaty that currently allows passport free travel through 25 member states after a row over immigration. Both leaders live in fear of the resurgence of anti-immigration parties led by  Umberto Bossi of the Northern League and Marine Le Pen of the Front National. (EuObserver)

Germany and Austria are playing down the numbers of expected accession Central and East European state workers who will have free access to the jobs market on May 1st by spouting the same old socialist rhetoric. “It is the right step at the right time” said Michael Huether of the Cologne based Institute for the German Economy. He added “It could also relieve pressure on an ageing workforce by providing a new generation of skilled workers”.The official figure gives an estimate of 140,000 but the reality may reflect the propaganda that Britons were fed when our borders were similarly opened when “estimated” figures such as 50,000 grew to over a million in a short space of time.

In contrast, the Dutch government wants to tighten it’s rules on migrant workers from EU countries, especially Poland. Gazeta Wyborcza, Polands 2nd largest tabloid newspaper has warned it will cost the Dutch economy dear. “Who will pick your tulips?” is the headline aimed at discouraging such uneuropean behaviour. The campaign though is in full swing with Geert Wilders leading the Freedom Party which is backing the Prime Minister Mark Rutte. The term “Polish Tsunami” has even been taken up by Dutch politicans, much to the disgust of the Polish Embassy.

Icelanders it seems voted “no” to pay for the debts of failed private bank Landsbanki Islands and it’s online branch Icesave and some would say the “No”was a refusal of those citizens to also join the EU.

The True Finns get first prize for divine retribution as the nominated candidate to chair the Administration Committee whose responsibilities include immigration goes to Jussi Halla-aho. Jussi Halla-aho had been brought up on charges of inciting racial hatred in 2009 which were dismissed but included a fine for defaming religion when he “blogged” about Somali Immigrants.

Denmark’s Islamic expert Lars Hedegaard, president of the International Free Press Society has criticised the building of a mosque in Copenhagen saying “It’s not really a mosque. It’s more like a barracks”. Iranian refugees who fled the Islamic radicalism in Iran now face the nightmare of that radicalism following them to Copenhagen and they have been demonstrating against it.

Nationalism may not have gripped the German politicos but the German people have certainly had enough of biting their tongues when all others are allowed the human right of free speech. Youtube Video of a German woman “Heroine of the day” goes to the fraulein captured at a radical Islamic demonstration crying “Germany Rise Up|”. This video is going viral very quickly around the world.

The terrorist threat has certainly kicked the United Kingdom between the legs with the release of a new tranche of WikiLeaks documents detailing the backgrounds of the inmates of Guantanamo Bay. It seems the United Kingdom is a hotbed of radical indoctrination and has at least 35 of it’s best graduates in attendance at the infamous detention centre. Indeed, so lax have the asylum checks been that the documents record how terrorist recruits from across Africa and the Middle East flocked to London to claim asylum and the generous benefit system to fund their jihadist revolutions against the West.

And while the EUtopian citizens are embarking on civil nationalist/Islamic wars, what are the EU doing?

“In the coming years additional tens of billions of euros in extra costs may be levied on homeowners and tenants. The EU Commission wants to increase the efficiency of buildings with respect to water consumption by reducing it 30% using a new directive in member states. It is being considered to obligate homeowners and landlords to replace shower heads, taps and toilets with new ones that have have considerably less consumption.” So, more money for less water… sounds about right.

As “notrickszone” puts it “This is for real. Got to hand it to the EU Commission – they really know how to come up with ways to harass and infuriate it’s citizens, and to interfere with their lives. For Americans and non-EU citizens, it will soon be coming to you too.

Question is, Could they get any angrier?

Totally clueless.

    “Question is, Could they get any angrier?”

    The Finns, the Danes and the Germans are all sadly way ahead of us. I suspect that now the brief euphoria and togetherness and pride in Britain shown yesterday have worn off, most of us will fall back into the old ways.

    There really is no European Union and there really are no citizens. There are only people and the ideas they hold in their heads.
    Try running that one past the next person who whines about the EU interfering.

    I’ve done it and the response is either total silence accompanied with a look of disbelief as though I have flipped or the remark ‘I’ll have whatever you are smoking!’. It’s great fun. Why not try it this weekend?

    “It is being considered to obligate homeowners and landlords to replace shower heads, taps and toilets with new ones that have have considerably less consumption.”

    That particular regulation was brought to you courtesy of The European Association of Manufacturers and Purveyors of Bath Accessories & Plumbing Materials.

    Oh goody – and I thought it was just us. That’s heartening.

    I think the MSM are to blame for the British ignorance of the EU. They hardly ever mention the EU. It’s only been lately that the Conservatives have used the “It’s the EU’s fault, not ours” phrase to justify rules and laws it knows we don’t like. So much easier to blame somebody else and the Tories are incredibly good at that.

    Unfortunately William, those ideas are firmly lodged in our politicans heads and until we remind them that it is our country they’re ruining, they’ll carry on doing it.

    Mark, apparently somebody caused a fuss and the statement has since been retracted (probably to be resurrected as some later time).

    James, the man is a megalomaniac. Can you imagine how big his ego is? Socialism (federalism to the EU), is a virus, a disease which needs curing. It does nothing for the evolution of man, it kills competition and ambition and rewards the feckless.

    They see us as drones, cashcows and I for one will not pay another cent in taxes to further a regime I do not agree with.

      You WILL not change the mind of a politician by ‘reminding them’. They are not elected by you and they are not where they are because you elected them. They do not even acknowledge you exist.

      As I see it there are two types of politician.
      The first puts themselves forward for election because they genuinely want to right a wrong or make things better for their fellow human beings believing that we live in a democracy.
      The second however puts themselves forward for personal gain. This gain may be simply influence but more often it is power or cash that is the gain.
      The second type vastly outnumber the first.

      To ‘support’ these two types of people we have the permanent politicians called civil servants,corporate directors, private secretaries and all manner of fancy titles that come with an obligatory increase in pay.

      These permanent politicians are the ones who stay ‘in post’ no matter what the colour of the elected bunch are. They are more powerful than the elected bunch. You can clearly see this in play if you ever attend a local council meeting.
      The permanent politicians lead the elected politicians where they want them to go.

      Now we have control freak organisations like common purpose infiltrating and training these permanent politicians.
      The European Union is chock full of control freaks who are supported by armies of national control freaks who are quite happy to put their fellow human beings into slavery as long as they themselves and their immediate families are kept out of it.
      They aren’t of course but their lives are feather bedded so it appears as though they aren’t actually slaves.

      All this happens simply because we hold two ideas in our heads.
      Anarchy is to be feared.
      This idea has been put there by the MSM and its permanent political controllers. It is constantly being reinforced by ‘police induced rioting’, draconian legislation that tries to curtail personal freedoms and of course the elected politicians who are intelligent enough to realise that all Anarchy means is… No Government.
      But if they don’t go along with the narrative they would be putting themselves ‘out of work’ and so they join in or at best say nothing.

      The second idea is that we are taught from school days to believe in the power of government. Without this government there would only be anarchy so better the devil you know…
      The government is there for our protection. Without it all manner of bad things will happen to YOU. It’s all a lie of course but it is repeated throughout your school days so by the time you leave it is true.

      And so we end up in the position we have today.
      From our point of view a broken dysfunctional system.
      From the slave masters point of view a perfect system where the slaves are scared shitless and will spend their lives arguing amongst themselves about things that don’t matter and ignore what is really happening to them as they stumble towards retirement and death.
