"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."

Why The Surprise?


It's being reported that the European Union proposes a common criminal justice system to sit with the European Arrest Warrant. Hallelujah! At last the message is getting through.

The EU wants to set criminal offences and minimum sentences and, according to Vivian Reding, a 2005 ruling from the ECJ that the EU can impose its own criminal offences "where it is essential in order to facilitate the enforcement of EU law", together with the Lisbon Treaty, support the implementation of the policy.  (Unless you're a lawyer who specialises in European Law, you'll be hard-pressed to find the specific case).

Our own criminal justice system has shifted perceptibly towards the European Napoleonic Code and away from our own Common Law (trial without jury, double jeopardy are two examples). When we warned of it we were told that we were, well, you know what they called us so I won't repeat it.

I don't think anything can be any clearer. We have been subverted; it's an inside job and we have been taken over with the approval of our own elected MPs and government Ministers. Our national sovereignty has gone and we are at the whim of selected politicos and bureaucrats in the EU who use taxation against us.

What is EU law?
"The main goal of the EU is the progressive integration of Member States' economic and political systems and the establishment of a single market based on the free movement of goods, people, money and services.

To this end, its Member States cede part of their sovereignty under the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) which empowers the EU institutions to adopt laws.

These laws (regulations, directives and decisions) take precedence over national law and are binding on national authorities. The EU also issues non-binding instruments, such as recommendations and opinions, as well as rules governing how EU institutions and programmes work, etc."
There's really not much more to be said - I've done with the jaw-jaw and incitement to war-war.  From the moment I began blogging I thought that people would quickly pick up on what was happening and there'd be an outcry, but they didn't and I'm still waiting. It comes to something when I'd rather talk to a plumber about fixing a leak than see what the EU is doing now or what directives our own traitorous government is nodding through. Two/three years ago I'd talk about manning the barricades, well, I've still got the ropey old mattress if someone else can give me a lift to Brussels, but I can be patient.

  1. I too am am astounded at the apathy of the British public. I have tried to raise awareness with friends and family and can only assume that when I broach the subject the EU presses a button that instantaneously converts my words into unintelligible gibberish.

  2. French, perhaps? Seriously though, it looks like a lost cause and until the msm give greater coverage, like this Alex Singleton article, it's impossible for them to be better informed. Unfortunately, that means that when the fight comes, as it will, it will be so much bloodier.

  3. There will be no fighting because as with the Jews walking into the gas chambers we, like them, do not believe that the government is evil enough to inflict harm on the people.
    Unfortunately, realisation will come too late - again.

  5. People are asleep. I had the EU inspectors round this afternoon, checking that I'd had my utility grant ( I said for what) they said for the EU standard insulation of 11 inches a complete misnomer if anything. This is the same EU that expects global warming so why do we need 11 inches of loft insulation? People are so busy running around trying to do stuff they dont have time to think, and because they dont have time to think they dont have time to act or to get angry They are kept too busy and all hell can break loose and they wont notice.

  9. Bread & Circuses indeed. Most of the sheeple are addicted to low-brow "reality" TV thinking they'll be famous like the sainted Cheryl while stuffing their faces with junk food and low quality booze.

  10. Hi Scotsfox, and welcome. Is that an accurate portrayal of British people? I don't think so. I think it's just a lazy stereotype promulgated by the government and the media. The people I know, and probably the people you know, are nothing like this feckless mythical British Beast. There are some about, but they're not the majority.

    Bread and circuses, reality tv, are distractions we have because media is reliant on govt for its 'news'. We all need to wise up.
