What a complete and utter tosser. If he thinks that anti-EU feeling is confined to “little Englanders” it only confirms the utter moronicity of a man inbued with a smug, sneering and arrogance-laden self-righteousness that one could not possibly make up.I am ferociously anti-EU as it now operates, so let’s see if I qualify as a “nationalistic Little Englander”.
– I am British and worked 20 years in the UK.
– I lived and worked 10 years in France.
– I now live and work in Germany.
– My first wife is Spanish; my second German.
– I have three Anglo-Spanish daughters, one Anglo-German son and two German-French stepsons.
– I speak 4 European languages and my wife 3.
– I can*’t see myself returning to live in the UK.
So, “Little Englander”, I hardly think so. Actually, I am an archetypical European, which is therefore how I see myslf. I have no special allegiance to any country, though Germany where I now live seems to be one fo the few which is standing firm against lunacy.
Yes, I am PRO-EUROPEAN, but the EU is a quasi-fascist organisation riddled with waste and corruption. I am all for European collaboration but not under this nasty, grasping, kleptomaniac and generally scummy international quango.
The UK pays TWENTY MILLION GBP PER DAY NET to the EU. For this they get:
– unelected bureaucrats earning twice that of any national leader plus as much in expenses
– a SIX BILLION EURO AND COUNTING and totally FATUOUS EU Diplomatic service led by the sureally-pathetic Dame Ashton
– MEPs who get hundreds of extra euros JUST FOR TURNING UP TO PARLIAMENT – even then they turn up, sign on for their appearance money and then bugger off
– VAST sums spent on expenses, including special and very expensive schools for EU staff
– horrendous waste on all kinds of lunatic projects (SEE SPAIN and the infrastructure to nowhere)
and so on.
EU fascist? They ousted TWO democratically-elected national leaders and replaced whem with ex-Goldman-Sachs & ECB cronies, one of whom is a proven LIAR. FOR THIS ALONE THEY SHOULD BE LOCKED UP.
