The EU Is Now Too Big For Its Boots

A news item today confirms to me that the European Union has become too big, too bureaucratic and too powerful. It concerns a demonstration in Brussels Belgium of people demonstrating for separatism. Those demonstrating were from as far afield as Catalan in Spain, Scotland, South Tyrol, and the majority from Flemish Belgium.

Brussels DemonstrationThey were demonstrating for separatism from their parent countries, wishing to control their own destiny instead of relying on government from their nations capital. But it made me think hard about all the rules that are being applied across all member states by a bunch of bureaucrats in Brussels. Slowly, bit by bit, countries have relinquished individual freedoms to these people, and in mine, and I might add many other people’s opinions, it has gone way too far.

Member StatesThe basic concept of mutual defence among the European nations has now reached a stage where all important decisions relating to the governance of a country have been handed over to Brussels. European nations now have to bow to the justice system and the immigration laws as dictated by the nameless, faceless politicians in Brussels. Not only these, but many other policies adopted by governments across the bloc. This has had a catastrophic effect on the livelihoods of the majority of its citizens.

Britain in particular has been hard hit by these rules from the EU, in particular concerning justice and immigration. Our laws and justice have been withered away by rules from Brussels, and in particular the CHR in Strasbourg in that we can no longer deport undesirables, and we must release from prison hardened murderers, rapists and pedophiles because we have “infringed on their Human Rights”. As a good example of EU interference, let me remind everybody that it took more than ten years to deport the radical Muslim clerics Abu Qatada and Abu Hamsa from our shores after their constant appeals to the CHR in Strasbourg.

On the immigration side we have been forced into accepting people from all over Europe to come and work here, thus taking jobs away from ethnic British which is one reason why we have such high unemployment figures. We have to pay them benefits, which most of them send to their own country, at a time when we are staggering under the weight of millions of immigrants allowed in by the traitor Tony Blair and his corrupt government. Our Social Services are close to collapse, and there is insufficient housing for our own people to the extent where the government has now decided we must build new cities on ‘Green Belt’ land.

Is this country supposed to accept immigrants until the whole country is built on? Perhaps in years to come people will travel from all corners of the country to view the last tree standing in Britain! But at least all the immigrants will have homes to live in!

One thing we should also bear in mind is that the EU is pressing for Turkey to become a member. Should that happen, under the current rules we can expect a flood of Turks coming to Europe to find work. Although most may well try Germany, we can certainly expect more than our fair share, especially with our generous benefits system.

Britain is of course not the only country that suffers under the EU yoke. Germany, France, Belgium, Denmark all have problems with too many immigrants, but many are at least more sensible with the way they give out benefits. Only Britain has officials standing on the docks and at airports waiting to hand out the first benefit payments to immigrants. In countries like Germany for example they have to work for, I believe, five years before they receive any benefits. Also they have taken a stronger stance against the interference from the CHR in Strasbourg. Makes you wonder why we cannot do the same thing. I guess its all down to our weak politicians.

We Give More Than We Recieve

We Give More Than We Receive

I am not advocating that the EU should be scrapped, but there has to be a limit on the power they hold and the amount of interference they can wield in a country’s affairs. They are perfectly capable of representing European countries on the international stage, and of course some form of mutual defence pact is also important, but they have to be stopped from dictating how a country runs it’s internal affairs.

Many believe we are headed for a United States of Europe, but that will probably mean that all power will be yielded to Brussels by all member states. That in my view is a very dangerous precedent.
