The EU has many supporters. Some will forever be inspired – as I once was – by a dream of European peace and collaboration. Others may simply be ignorant, and not a few are hopelessly bribed by the vast personal benefits that accrue to EU employees.
However, there is a fundamental reason why I find it impossible to support the EU, and it is the total disconnect between the following two things
A) The EU has admitted that its aim is to create a European superstate;
“Transforming the European Union into a single State with one army, one constitution and one foreign policy is the critical challenge of the age, German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer said yesterday.” (1998)
… and the euro was a KEY part of this plan even though they KNEW it would fail. Indeed, they hoped it would fail so as to further their project:
“I am sure the euro will oblige us to introduce a new set of economic policy instruments. It is politically impossible to propose that now. But some day there will be a crisis and new instruments will be created.” Romano Prodi, president of the European Commission – 2001
‘“The single currency is the greatest abandonment of sovereignty since the foundation of the European Community… It is a decision of an essentially political character… We need this united Europe… We must never forget that the euro is an instrument for this project.” Felipe, Gonzalez, Spanish PM – 1998
Let’s be clear about this. The architects KNEW the euro would run into trouble and believed it would accelerate the federalisation of Europe into a superstate. The appalling unemployment of young people in particular is the price that the euro’s architects were willing to pay to see the achievement of their goal: not that they THEMSELVES would suffer any of the consequences of course.
Having established this fact, we turn to the second part:
B) NOT ONE SINGLE EUROPEAN CITIZEN OF THE 403 MILLION OF VOTING AGE OR SO HAS EVER VOTED TO CREATE A EUROPEAN SUPERSTATE.
NOT ONE EUROPEAN VOTER HAS BEEN ASKED FOR THE CONSENT TO THIS – NOT A SINGLE ONE.
On the contrary, when individual nations have had a chance to express their opinion in a referendum, many have clearly REJECTED this project as shown below:
