Lucky Poland

We learn from the pages of EurActiv.com that:

Poland and Russia are due to sign an agreement in Brussels today (4 November) that will see Gazprom increase its deliveries to Warsaw by 38%. Energy Commissioner Günther Oettinger said the treaty would have “EU legitimacy”.

Oettinger announced that he was going to look today “at the latest draft of the treaty on a confidential basis” but expressed confidence that the agreement would comply with EU legislation.

Isn’t that nice? One nation state, Poland, agrees a deal to buy the gas needed by its population with another nation state, Russia. Yet the deal is only considered ‘legitimate’ if a foreign, overseas body of unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats, who suck on the teat of hard pressed taxpayers across Europe and confer upon themselves privileges most can only dream of, say it is.

One wonders just what would happen if Poland told the EU that it is none of their damned business, that it will buy and sell gas as it wishes and completed the transaction regardless? You know, if it acted like a… what’s it called again? Ah yes, an independent and sovereign nation.

    A precedent that confirms the bilaterial treaty between France and UK on Defence is in fact an EU Treaty.

    Where’s our referendum?

    How much longer will we tolerate the EU? Germany’s backing off and doing her own thing while we have a UK government which has sold our military’s independence. I despair.
