"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."

"Ein Volk, Ein Reich, Ein Fuhrer"

All sorts of insults were traded this afternoon before Godfrey Bloom UKIP MEP was thrown out  of the European Parliament.  Wonderful stuff.

It was supposed to have been a high-minded debate on the Irish collapse and the euro crisis but instead the talk in the European parliament today degenerated into a screaming match about goose-stepping Nazis, Spitfires and Adolf Hitler.

  1. I think he went too far. The trick is to make them look bad, and this plays into their hands.

  3. @ 2:13 the lobster wearing a wig looking fella makes a Nazi salute(???).

    @ 3:30 man from above adds "concentration camps" to the 'offence'.

    And the icing on the cake for the EU project, the power of the 'chamber' being able to 'withdraw their platform'.

    Bye bye democracy, hello Eutocracy.

  4. Hi Jack, Con Home have posted the video saying it's Bloom doing the salute - but it isn't, they've got that wrong. I don't know who it is.

    @ 3.30 - I don't know the guy's name but he's French (I heard him speaking on another video).

    They can vote to deny access to any elected MEP they object to. As you say, not exactly democratic. I can't believe it will last in its present form for much longer - 6 months/a year?
