100 REASONS FOR BREXIT No 23: Labour’s self-applied blindfold when it comes to EU fascism.

The British People need to purge sightless Labour of its Socialist SuperState dream

If I live to be 430, I will never understand the Labour Party’s unswerving support for an EU that says one thing in its laws and does another via the banks, corrupt bureaucrats and controlling multinationals that hijacked it long ago.
Freedom of Movement in the EU – is this really for the worker, or for the neoliberal greedy suckers who want to repress wages to reward the Sovereign shareholder?
Greece – has it really been raped to repay debt, or to be a guinea pig for the troughers who want to know how far human beings can be pushed before they rebel?
The European Central Bank – answerable to nobody and run by a former Goldman executive whose shady past among Italian banks suggests that he thinks ethics is a place being described by somebody with a lisp.
Guy Verhofstadt – a corrupt Belgian with undeclared personal interests in Greek privatisations.
Ditto Martin Schulz – a man who insists his chauffeur wears a tailcoat, and suppresses all evidence of corruption in his role as ‘head’ of the EU Parliament.
Jeremy Corbyn and Kate Hoey share these doubts…but the Labour fatties force their support of SupraState Stalinist correctness on those with an open mind. Corbyn as leader has backed off…the ever-courageous Kate doesn’t.
These factors – not the Little England drivel trotted out by Farage on a daily basis – are the reasons we should get TF out of the European Fascist Union.

  2. Not as long as it suits Washington, the pols here have no say in the matter let alone the public. Cameron has already been reported to have stated in private to a group of friends that he will never take us out of the EU, unless of course instructed by Washington to do so. We are in for ever, or as long as it lasts, which I believe will be at least a decade, maybe more. With US support, and their lack of concern for their ever increasing debt pile it might never fold.
    There is now talk that Putin’s in on the game and is just playing along. Imagine.

  3. I agree entirely Mr. Ward. I have never understood why almost all recent Labour politicians have been cheerleaders for the EU. The same is true of their attitude to untrammelled immigration. Given Nu Labour’s infatuation with corporatocracy and finance capitalism, I get their haste to cede sovereignty to an unaccountable body run by bureaucrats and banksters, but as to why the ‘Left’ (or at least what remains of Old Labour) also support the EU I have no clue. I was devastated when Corbyn backed away from advocating a Brexit. Tony Benn’s quote sums up the inherent danger of the EU and similar bodies.

    ““If one meets a powerful person ask them five questions: ‘What power have you got? Where did you get it from? In whose interests do you exercise it? To whom are you accountable? And how can we get rid of you?’ If you cannot get rid of the people who govern you, you do not live in a democratic system” – Tony Benn

    Incidentally, this is also in my mind why Canada is about to further distance itself from ‘democracy’ having recently negotiated the TPP, an unaccountable ‘trade agreement’ (i.e. treaty) that serves multinational corporations at the expense of the citizens of the signatory countries. Given Canada’s experience with the FTA I see my adopted land sliding closer and closer to banana republic status. Fewer than one in ten people I talk to have even heard of the TPP. I despair

  4. And even the European Parliament are beginning to get the picture with their fuhrer – “in a recent report on the discharge of its 2013 annual budget, the European Parliament criticised its President Martin Schulz for the excessive number of assistants. The report reads, “[The European Parliament] notes with concern that the large number of staff based in the office of the President of the European Parliament, which amounts to 35 staff, including two drivers and a personal usher, is highly questionable and that this sets a bad example for cost reduction and fiscal responsibility within Parliament.”

  5. Cometh the hour, cometh the liar.

    So far, now into the second term would anybody hazard a guess at how many election promises Cameron and his lot have broken because it just seems so many. it really does. Even the conservtive party could do with a name change, you know like NU Labour, well try CONSERVATIVE LIARS.

    Now even if you get a referendum the outcome is already decided, a YES vote to stay in by Cameron and Washington and all the NO’s in the world will be ignored. As for Cameron renegotiating with the EU we are already been told to take a hike and even more amusing Washington demands we stay in even to the detriment of our own people.

    What sticks in my throat most of all is the USA should be forced to join the EU and adopt all legislation because it wants such a big piece of the say in the EU / puppet government affairs and it will NEVER ALLOW US TO DETERMINE OUR OWN PATH.

    Makes you wonder how the USA could ever claim to be in the right over the war of independence don’t it!

  8. Quote – ‘not the Little England drivel trotted out by Farage on a daily basis’

    I’m genuinely interested – what exactly are you referring to and what exactly do you mean by ‘Little England drivel’?

    Can you provide any recent quotes or examples from him that demonstrate this? What qualifies a statement as ‘little England drivel’ and what kind of talk about immigration, immigrants, race etc passes the ‘little England drivel’ test? Europhiles tend to throw the ‘little Englander’ insult at anyone who would prefer not to be a part of a ‘United States of Europe’ with all of the accompanying horrors that go with it, so it seems difficult to discuss immigration or leaving the EU without falling into that trap.

    This leaves me not much wiser –

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Englander

    …so i’m wondering about your usage of the term to describe Farage’s daily output. Surely it’s only natural to come across as ‘nationalistic’ if one is against the EU and their sustained and powerful assault upon our national identity and culture (and those of the other EU nations, but ours in particular)?

    I’ve just seen Theresa May being applauded by many in the media for saying almost the exact same things as Farage has being saying for a long time (which he was roundly vilified for) even though May is personally responsible for the recent appalling immigration figures and broken promises. Surely her ‘all talk and no action’ performance is worthy of disdain above that of Farage? Do you doubt that Farage would implement his promises if he had power?

    I read this blog daily and agree with 90% of it, but this aspect baffles me, unless I assume that your personal dislike of the man and his personality is influencing your opinion of the words he speaks and I wouldn’t automatically make that assumption because so much else that you post passes the critical thinking filters.

    Thanks in advance.
