"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Corrupt And Dirty EU


The EU: an iron fist in a velvet glove. An anthropomorphised EU would look like Peter Mandelson. It's corrupt, sleazy, unaccountable and undemocratic.

Marta Andreasen, who was elected as a Ukip MEP for South East England last month, has been blocked from becoming vice-chairman of the European Parliament's budgetary committe. They even broke convention on the allocation of committee posts by demanding a vote by secret ballot to do it.

Andreasen, the European Commission's former chief accountant, was fired in 2004 by Lord Kinnock after she publicly claimed there was a £172 million discrepancy between two sets of Brussels accounts. Kinnock accused her of "disloyalty and breach of trust" after she went to MEPs with her concerns.

Inge Graessle, a senior German Christian Democrat MEP, admitted that Andreasen had been opposed for the senior post because of her 'trouble-making' past. "The role she played in the past, what I feel was a certain scandalising of issues, is not really one we want endorsed by her becoming vice-chairman," she said.

"This is a message about how much they fear me. But I still know what I know and they will not stop me," Mrs Andreasen said.

  1. Outrageous, but predictable. I hope Farage and Andreassen have a Plan B. They must've known this was going to happen.

    BTW, I love your Keywords for Home Office snoopers!

  2. Hope you haven't just noticed them Fausty! It came from an idea by Ian Parker-Joseph so it has to be good - more of us should do it just to confound the enemy!
