The Tory High Europlastics have spoken

The highest ranking Conservative Europlastic, the man touted by many Tories as the person who above all others would most clearly show his eurosceptic credentials once in office, William Hague, has evidenced the reality that lurks beneath the facade:

‘Of course we will look at any motion, but we won’t be in favour of holding now an in/out referendum on Europe.’

Never mind what the British people want.  All that matters to this venal cabal of self serving hypocrites and liars, is what they want. Eurowillie has long spoken a good game, but when the crunch comes he, like his boss David Cameron, are forced to reveal their real viewpoint.

It takes a special kind of arrogance to claim to know what around 45 million people who are eligible to vote in the UK, actually want.  But that is what the other Arch Europlastic, Cameron, is doing in an effort to maintain the EU as the supreme government of the UK:

‘What most people want in this country is not actually to leave the EU, but to reform the EU and make sure that the balance of powers between a country like Britain and Europe is better.’

The only way to be sure is to give the people their democratic say.

More people have signed a petition to demand a referendum on EU membership than voted to send David Cameron to Parliament.  But no matter what happens in the House of Commons when the matter is discussed, we can be sure that Cameron will cling like a limpet to the fact any subsequent call by backbench MPs for a referendum – if they dare to issue such a call after expelling copious amounts of hot air – is not binding on the government.

Therefore the only valuable thing to come from the whole exercise of petitions forcing debates, is that this supposed strengthening of democracy and people power will be exposed for the sham it is.  More people will become angry, more eyes will finally be opened, and the pressure gauge will continue its rise towards a level where it can no longer be contained.

It will take time, but a reckoning will come.  It is being designed by the politicians who will become the architects of their own downfall.

    I sense real change is now in the air. The political aliens are carrying on as if nothing has changed. They think the people don’t care, have no appetite for change and will not do nothing that may upset their status quo.

    The political show season confirms they haven’t a clue what is about to hit them.

    I don’t disagree, but what are they going to be hit with?

    Whatever the ‘hit’ is and whenever [soon very soon I hope] it hits them, let it be; very hard, relentless and unwavering – a pitiless strike.

    I don’t have a crystal ball that works or a direct line to Nibiru but I get the feeling, nothing more, that individually people are beginning to ignore the state machine.
    Individuals are delaying state payments, quietly removing their money from banks, killing Direct Debits, asking questions, paying government charges in the most inconvenient ways, giving government snooping short shrift (I’ve seen the volume of paper one person chasing up ‘missing’ electoral roll registrations has to carry ) and generally gaining a realisation just how vulnerable the state really is.
    It is the state that is in debt not the people of these islands. The minute the state is shown to be ‘outside of the people’ the individual people will simply stop funding it, in my humble of course.

    The state is in reality a blown egg.
    Apparently rock hard and impervious on the outside but with nothing inside. As with a blown egg little cracks do no real harm but the split second the cracks join up the egg disintegrates. That is how I see it going.

    @ Bill,

    “It is the state that is in debt not the people of these islands.”

    This is a good point. If people start seeing the state as a foreign body, not part of us, but rather a parasite feeding upon us, and then see that it is actually the most indebted, essentially bankrupt institution in the land, if the people start thinking; ‘wait a minute, it’s not my debt, it’s that bloody government’s debt’, suddenly it will look very vulnerable.

    ‘What most people want in this country is not actually to leave the EU, but to reform the EU and make sure that the balance of powers between a country like Britain and Europe is better.’

    But don’t you know that being a politician grants you powers of extra sensory perception. They know what we’re think before we do…

    Bill makes a good point. It is a feeling that the cardboard cutouts that parade in the media are seen as just that. Hague is simply a cartoon figure, a Mr Magoo, no longer relevant to reality as it is lived. A Great Disjoint exists and people are moving into the laager and bunkering down
