This week the Brussels spin doctors were tasked with selling we benighted serfs a tall story of supposed ethical probity, designed to give the impression that the unelected unaccountables who govern us are whiter than white:
The European Commission today (20 April) announced tougher ethical rules for commissioners while they are in office and after they leave the Commission […]
The Commission said the changes to the code of conduct were discussed with the European Parliament and the new rules reflect comments made by MEPs.
People must not be taken in by this hypocritical attempt by the EU to kid us its leaders are ethical.
For at the same time the European Commission preaches at us about ethics, the EU is laying siege to Switzerland in an effort to bully and threaten it to increase tax rates that are far lower than its own and we see the tawdry tale of tax evading German MEP, Elmar Brok, shielding behind the utterly outrageous immunity from prosecution afforded to members of the European Parliament.
This country has been assimilated by the political class into an unholy federal and undemocratic union. A union that on the one hand claims to stand opposed to corrupt regimes, but on the other places its own self selecting leadership out of reach of the laws that bind the rest of us. But all is well of course because we are supposed to be reassured by this meaningless code of ethical conduct.
