EU Referendum debate signals dawn of a new epoch

We have had many epochs.  We’ve had the Eocene, the Oligocene, the Miocene and even the Holocene.  But the rank disingenuous nature of the political class as they dance around issue of a possible EU referendum shows we have entered a new epoch – the Plasticine.  Yes, the Europlastics are on the march.

As dozens of Tory MPs ludicrously rush forth to profess their Eurosceptic credentials – despite all but half a dozen of all MPs consistently voting in favour of EU integrationist Bills that are put before the House of Commons – the effort to play down the possibility of a ‘No’ vote, and instead talk up the idea of reforming the terms of the UK’s membership of the European Union, has been immense.  As Richard North writing on EU Referendum explains, the Europlastics are plumbing new depths.

The fundamental deception in this whole sham debate is the suggestion that our membership of the EU can be renegotiated.  The very notion is a red herring.  The renegotiation suggestion is nothing more than an idea which spawned from a false hope, that cannot ever progress beyond wishful thinking.  It is a lie.  The EU’s core aim is ever closer union.  It is impossible to be a member without a firm commitment to that aim.

Including the suggestion of a renegotiation of the terms of EU membership in the forthcoming debate as a referendum option is nothing more than an escape exit the political class has provided for itself.  The con is on.

Of the 650 MPs in the UK around 640 have either voted in favour of further EU integration or tacitly supported it by absenting themselves from votes at some time.  MPs overwhelming want to convince the electorate that this supposed half-way house of renegotiation is a genuine option.  By doing so it will enable these Europhiles to give the illusion of action to placate the majority of voters while powers continue to be shipped to Brussels as they are today.  The excuse for the absence of progress is already established: ‘we can’t rush these things, it all takes time’.

Make no mistake, this Government and British MPs in general do not wish to weaken the stranglehold they and their predecessors have granted the EU over the UK. That is why the chief Europlastics, David Cameron and William Hague, will stand before Parliament and go through the charade of imploring, cajoling and threatening MPs to back away from giving the people the opportunity to choose how and by whom this nation is governed.  It is all an act.  They know the MPs won’t do anything that changes the status quo.

They are not interested in the wishes of the voters.  The electorate are the enemy that must be deceived, held at bay, patronised and wherever possible, ignored.  The political class will do everything in its power to prevent the possibility of a ‘No’ vote.  For them the future of this nation is lies embedded within an anti-democratic, corrupt and unsustainable entity.

The EU is the enemy of those who wish to live in a functioning, representative democracy.  And like the EU, this bastardised Conservative led coagulation of a government is our enemy too.  Don’t be fooled by Monday’s overhyped and overblown sleight of hand.  We are now in the Plasticine era where nothing in politics is genuine, it is just stage managed imitation.

On Monday set aside the hot air and judge the MPs by their actions – or what will prove to be a lack of them.

    Eric Ollerenshaw is the Lancaster, Fleetwood and Wyre MP and was new to the job back in June 2010. He’s a very marginal Not-a-Tory (for whom I didn’t vote), who will benefit greatly from Cameron’s reversal of Neue Arbeit’s local constituency boundary changes once a staunch Labour voting Fleetwood is decoupled and given back to Blackpool North (which tends to vote Lab or Limp Dim anyway),. He votes the way his master tells him and is a big Europhile. There isn’t a single rebellious vote listed for him. He shoves his loyal little hand in the air every time he’s told too. Just as he did when all the other Westminster Village Idiots voted to hand over billions we don’t have to the IMF a few months ago.

    It sickens me that bastards like Oillerenshaw are party animals rather than representatitives for their constituents. He represents everything that is wrong with our political system. He’s just biding his time until he gets the opportunity to lay his stupid, grasping hands on the greasy pole of power. Unfortunately he is not a unique species.

    3 choices for MP’s to vote on in which 2 are certain to maintain the status quo, the third an actual referendum (and remember there is no guarantee the politial class will ever grant one) could actually cement our entrenchment within the EU if it slides past with a marginal yes vote as happened in 1975; and TPTB will use OUR money, along with a carefully crafted question, air time propoganada bullying fear every trick in their arsenal to push for a yes vote that’s if the referendum is even granted and it will only be so if TPTB feel confident of a yes….

    I digress but the recent MSM reports and pictures of Gadaffi’s capture and summary execution disgusted me but also in a perverse sort of way got me laterally thinking about Cameroon and Co…Cameroon’s words on Gadaffi’s capture and execution were celebratory! actually he was pleased and smug about the summary execution of a man….irrespective of Gadaffi’s past, (and he gave Lybians, free health care, education etc and it was the Iranian’s who blew up PanAm not the Lybians,) he did not deserve to die like a dog and Cameroon smugly pontificates and celebrates it….anyway it got me thinking about what Cameron’s last words will be as he’s hoisted aloft a lamppost along with the other traiterous political scum who have reneged on their solemn duty in the supposedly sovereign offices they hold…..just thinking….

    Sorry AM slight correction to your post – ‘They are not interested in the wishes of the voters. The electorate are the enemy that must be deceived, held at bay, patronised and wherever possible, ignored.’

    You forgot taxed to death for no discernable advantage.

    Ed Miliband doesn’t believe we need an EU referendum because of the “vast benefits” of membership and that we don’t have lots of referendums.

    There really are 650 aliens in the Parliament and until enough of us realise this and rediscover that they are only there because we consent to their being there they are home free to feather nests, pontificate, tax, tax, tax and implement every minute regulation spewing out the European Union to ensure we hand over even more of our cash in fines and then more tax.

    This vote is about buying time for the Euro zone countries aliens to move money out of the way and try and stage manage the collapse. I am glad its going ahead because it will show once and for all to even the most ardent supporters of a parliamentary democracy that what we have simply isn’t.

    Whether that revelation is enough to get them of their backsides remains to be seen.

    English independence anyone?

    A good article. This is at last the opening of the issue. Whilst it is clear this is just a sop to persuade the public the MPs and Cameron are listening, it does at least give us another platform to raise the visibility of the EU and our Sovereignty with even more people.

    It will be a long, hard road to undo the deceit and betrayal of the last 40 years, but when we have achieved this, our generation will have earned its place in the history of this country.

    Andy Baxter:

    Camerons likely last words could be, “Look at the noose round Hague’s neck. It’s far too slack, far too slack.”

    Or

    “This is a democracy! I’m no tyrant like Gaddafi was. I didn’t sanction the killing of innocent civilians, I didn’t give money to venal dictatorships, I didn’t refuse to listen to ‘my’ people when they asked for change. I didn’t allow the militarisation of a police force, I didn’t stop doing the right thing (for me and my family).” ” I stood by free health care and free education!”

    “You see, we’re not alike the Colonel and I. We’re not, I tell you.”

    Utterly brilliant post, AM. But you knew that, right? :-)

    Its like you learn my thoughts! You seem to understand so much approximately this, such as you wrote the book in it
    or something. I believe that you just can do with some % to pressure the message house a little bit, however instead of that,
    that is magnificent blog. An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.
