"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."

'These Are Times That Try Men's Souls*

A report by Open Europe has been taken up by the Daily Mail.

From Open Europe:
There are lots of juicy proposals in the pipeline including: a target to train a third of all police officers across the EU in a “common culture” of policing; the mass collection and sharing of personal data including DNA records into an EU-wide database; controversial surveillance techniques including ‘cyber patrols’; the creation of a fledgling ‘EU Home Office’ with powers to decide on cooperation on police, border, immigration and criminal justice issues; an EU “master plan” on information exchange; the transfer of criminal proceedings among EU member states; a three-fold increase in the number of controversial EU arrest warrants; access to other member states’ national tax databases; and EU laws on citizens’ right to internet access.
The comments section of the Mail is bubbling; here are just two examples:

If anything all opponents of the EU and the police state should now make an appointment with their MP and tell them of their views and that their vote will dissappear if they do not take them into account in the future.
This process should be repeated at regular intervals.
Get mobile and let them know that they will get no rest till they get us out.

Any and I mean any party which gets us out will get my vote.Of course the Labour dream is dismantling of UK and incorporation into a giant EU superstate along the lines of the old USSR. Most of the EU states also have socialist governments. The real surprise is the silence from HM opposition. We expect treason from Labour, but the real traitors who could have saved us from this and chose not to are the Tories. (I am an ex Conservative activist)

America is in the same, holed boat:
