March of the delusional EUseful idiots

Why should the media subject us to what people like Lord Wolfson have to say, when they spout such ignorant rubbish as this?

I think the most important thing is the principal – what is the EU there for. Is it a vehicle for greater freedom in Europe – free movement of capital, free movement of good, free movement of services, free movement of people?

Or is it a government of governments, a government above governments, a government without democratic licence, but the right to interfere in every aspect of our lives?

I think that is what it is becoming. I think over the last thirty years it has slowly changed itself and become ever more hungry for power.

The EU, in all its guises, has never been anything other than a governance construct designed to centralise power by removing it from nation states so that ordinary people cannot pursue ‘populist’ agendas that conflict with the continent’s elite.  It was not created as a free trade area in the way Wolfson and his pro-EU friends at Open Europe keep kidding themselves.

It has not been changing itself; it has merely been executing the centralisation plan that was always as the heart of the European project.  The EU mimics a state and is striving to function as one, and within a state – a single entity – movement of capital, goods, services and people is not constrained.  The four freedoms are just the by-product, not the objective.

A supposedly intelligent man like Wolfson would know this if he bothered to try to understand the entity he is saying should be reformed.  He either doesn’t know, or is simply misleading people for ulterior ends.  What isn’t made clear is what interest the EU could possibly have in reform when its decades-long plan to remove power from nation states has been progressing so effectively?  That’s an issue the ignorant Wolfson and delusional Open Europe never address as they continue in their roles of useful idiots for the benefit of the EU.

    I have come to the view that we are all born with a massive drive to seek power – over self, environment, and ‘destiny’. Maturity can be defined as successfully growing out of that crude drive. Residual drive to control, may be inversely proportional to maturity achieved; the most damaged (unable to mature) being the most driven. I suggest this explains why damaged individuals enter politics and why politicians are attracted by ever-greater power-structures. “The fault lies not in our stars, but in ourselves.” It rather looks as if the ten-thousand-odd years between ice ages (so far) is just long enough to cock everything up, irrevocably. If CO2 turns out to be able to delay the next one, we are in deep do do.

    One wonders why the Telegraph keeps publishing such crap.

    Wolfson was not the only one talking crap on Today – so did Grayling.

    In response to the question raised by Richard North – and one hesitates to answer a question with another question – I can only refer back to a long standing one of my own:in whose pocket is who, where the relationship twixt media and the political class is concerned.

    The spelling mistake (“principal” instead of “principle”) seems to be the Telegraph’s not Wolfson’s. An idiotic idea is served by hopeless journalism. That sounds fair to me.

    Just another crap coalition.

    The EU exhhibits all the trappings of an empire. That member states join voluntarily rather than as a result of being conquered militarily is just a post modern political device and does not alter the fact that client states are subject to control by a dominant central authority. The latter has been largely a remote oligarchy based in Brussels but in recent years has become increasingly influenced by German interests. We need to understand the true nature of this beast before we can hope to resist it.

    Politiicians play games for which they lack the necessary skills. Their delusional nature allows them to gain more satisfaction from being crap at a big game over being crap at a small one, so they buy-in, at our expense.
    While people vote ‘party’ or not at all, we yield to the current corrupt paradigm. SPOIL PARTY GAMES

    The position of the Daily Mail and the Daily Telegraph is to support the Conservative Party. The integrity of the arguments is secondary.

    ‘Europe’ has always been divisive for the CP, with a leadership in favour and a grass roots that is anti. The way they’ve found to hold together is to hatch the nonsense of reform. Without it, they’d have to say whether they were in favour of being in or getting out and whichever way they chose would cause problems.

    It’s not surprising that the DT is supportive of grumbling about the EU, clinging to the idea that it can be changed into something it was never intended to be and ruling out leaving, because that’s a stance fundamental to the CP and without which they’d have serious problems.

    The weirdness comes in when you realize that a Party supporting EU rule is voting for its own irrelevance.
