Amid the mounting confusion and acrimony of the eurozone crisis, one thing has this week come across loud and clear. “Un-European” though it might be – that’s what Luxembourg’s prime minister, Jean-Claude Juncker, called it – Germany is not about to yield on the “no bail-out” clause.
The anti-German comments by Brussels eurocrat Juncker were disgraceful and appalling. More than that even, but I can’t find the right words: “despicable” perhaps?
Let’s look at FACTS:
A) The “Germans” started the wars? In reality, the Prussians and then the Nazis; never a majority in Germany anyway.
B) Most of the “guilty” are LONG DEAD.
C) Despite this, the Franco-Belgian-Luxembourg “Axis of Proto-Fascists” has FOR YEARS played the subtle game of prodding the German guilt complex to extract from it as much money as possible.
D) Germany has BANKROLLED the EU for decades, paying VAST amounts into EU coffers to distribute to poorer countries in the EU and of course to maintain Mr Juncker in the lifestyle to which he seems to feel entitled at someone else’s expense.
E) Germany has been totally “solidaire” in Europe, continuing to pay vast amounts into the EU despite the billions (or is it by now trillions) that it has had to pay to bring East Germany up to speed.
A) The EU Elite LIED about Greece’s qualifications to enter the euro. Everyone KNEW they were lying. Germany had tried to set strict criteria so as to make sure the euro was serious; if they were to give up the Deutschmark the wanted something serious to replace it. They should have known that much of what comes out of Brussels is soggy, venal and agenda-ridden. The EU Elite BETRAYED the Germans; they DELIBERATELY let in countries that WEREN’T ready for the euro. (Greece’s statistics were a LIE, it even being rumoured that Goldman Sachs helped them to “present the figures in the best possible light” – Funny, Lehmann Brothers, Madoff and plenty of others did that, too.) THEY LIED for their own political ends, which (as Mr van Rompuy has now ADMITTED) are essentially to create a European superstate ruled from Brussels. Do you know ANYONE who wants to suffer this gruesome fate? Or more to the point who has been given a SAY about it?
B) When Greece went belly-up recently (as was inevitable, especially given the Greek government’s own venal idiocy) the Germans weren’t too pleased at bailing her out but stumped up anyway. Then they were castigated by Sarkozy for their “slowness”! (You can always rely on the French elite to want people to be fast when doling out their own money to bankroll someone else). Now Juncker wants an “E-BOND”, essentially to bail out all the rest: Ireland, Portugal, Spain and later Belgium and Italy (words they dare not mention). This “E-BOND” sounds very flashy, technical and advanced (what could be more pukka PC-European) but OF COURSE it is just ANOTHER CLEVER WAY TO GET MONEY OUT OF THE GERMANS.
C) No milch cow can be exploited for ever. Merkel has at last said “Niet”. This prompts Mr Juncker to accuse them of being “un-European”. Juncker is a prime example of the Europratts who are DESTROYING the EU. His elite clique have tried to go TOO FAR and TOO FAST and TOO MUCH at other people’s expense. He is from Luxembourg, a country full of banks and the rich which has contributed almost nothing to Europe except Mr Juncker, for which much thanks. As Chirac might have said: “He has missed a good opportunity to keep quiet.” And slagging off the Germans for being “un-European” after all they have done to atone for WWI & II I is pretty damned stupid as well as insulting; their guilt-complex can only be milked so far.
The EU ELITE LIED. THEY WANT A EUROPEAN SUPERSTATE. THEY ARE OVERPAID, PRETENTIOUS, DISCONNECTED BOTH FROM THE CITIZENS AND FROM REALITY and UNDEMOCRATIC – NO consultation on the Lisbon Treaty – NO consultation on the idiotic “diplomatic service” run by nonentity Lady Ashton (paid double the salary of the British PM) and costing SIX BILLION EUROS with FORTY-SIX “diplomats” on that world industrial and economic colossus Barbados and on top of all that they are CRIMINALS, since the bailouts are ILLEGAL under the Lisbon Treaty that we have not been allowed to vote on.
“Whom the Gods wish to destroy, they first make mad.” and of course:
“Give someone enough rope and he’ll eventually hang himself.”
Mr Juncker has had plenty of rope; we could be near the fulfilment of this particular rope’s destiny.
