"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."

Veoh! Let Me Hear You Say ...

...Whoops!
It seems that big breasts and stupid stunts are fine but political content is a no-no.

I've veered off-track because someone asked me about the EU's stance on the re-introduction of capital punishment but the document I'd saved was before I switched to Firefox so I trawled my old IE 'Politics' favourites and couldn't find the original footnote anywhere.  I've searched and come across lots of information but not the explicit footnote that was attached to the Protocol.

Current EU law says that a Civil Servant will have immunity from prosecution if a member-state is in a state of civil disobedience and someone is killed - eg the Metropolitan police officer who was instrumental in the death of Ian Tomlinson would not be prosecuted under EU law. More to the point, the footnote of the protocol allows for the existence of de facto capital punishment of those rebelling against the state, ie the EU.  If you're in a protest after the Lisbon Treaty is fully ratified by all member-states, be careful because there will be no sanction against your killer and no mechanism to challenge it in the Courts.

So much is re-written, like the Constitution for the European Union itself, that it's a maze of obfuscation and outright, simplistic lies.  They're a bit like old cowboys who towed a branch of a bush behind their horses to mask their trail from marauders - everything is swept clean behind them.  Except these guys are not the good guys.

On a personal level, I've given them the benefit of the doubt: I've given them space to show that they're really trying to bring peace and prosperity on a global scale but all I see is lies and a compliance with international corporations. We've seen this, on a small scale, in our own government. I had misgivings in 1998 and it's just gone from bad to worse. How many times must it be said? Big govt + big business = fascism.

On the bright side, if you're one of those working for the elite, or one of the elite yourself, your future is assured.  Which side would you rather be on?

  1. Big govt + big business = fascism.

    I fully agree. A Government not tied by the arse to business would be just very special.

  2. It's what we have now OR - it's time we recognised it.
