I’ve been meaning to do this for a while. I’m nominating the EU. It likes to portray itself as a benign organisation. One big, happy family where everyone is at peace and everything is perfect. It’s complete bullshit of course, as their behaviour since the UK voted to leave has proven more than once. The majority of the voting British people voted out, because the EU was treating us like shit, and we were sick of it.
Ever since that vote, various members of the EU ‘elite’, have made statements that contained threats, both veiled and otherwise, naked contempt, outright hostility and/or sarcastic remarks. Why would they do that if the EU was as benign as they make out? They wouldn’t. The fact is though, the EU is actually quite a malign, insidious organisation, whose only aim is to gather as much power as possible for a few unelected people. A bit like the old Soviet Union, only more secretive.
That brings me to another reason we voted to leave, the lack of democracy. Sure, we get to vote for MEP’s, but how much use are they really? They don’t don’t make any decisions. Only the likes of Juncker and Tusk get to do that, and we’re not allowed to vote them into their positions in free and fair elections. Which means that EU democracy is nothing more than an illusion. And there’s another thing. Not a single person ever voted to join a pan-European political organisation, with dreams of nationhood. It was initially sold as being nothing more than a trading bloc, though we know now that was a lie.
The UK has been the EU’s second largest financial contributor, pretty much since the EU was formed, and THAT has been the EU’s only use for us. It surprises me, that the likes of Juncker and Tusk would seemingly be so offended that the British people finally got sick of them treating us with increasingly naked contempt. What the fuck did they think would happen?
For twenty years or more, various EU ‘leaders’ have laughed at us, threatened us, belittled and humiliated us. Did they seriously think we wouldn’t reach a point where we decided enough is enough? And ever since June last year, aided by the Quislings here in the UK, we’ve had dire warnings that the UK will collapse without the EU, well that’s bullshit. If anything, it’s the other way around. Without us, there will be a massive black hole in the EU’s finances. And the EU’s ineptitude when it comes to handling money, they’ll have a very hard time fixing it. That’s why they’re demanding we pay an £80 billion “divorce” settlement.
The stated intention of the EU, is to punish the UK for daring to leave. It’s supposed to be a deterrent to other nations, like Hungary and the Czech Republic who are unhappy with the way they’re being treated by the EU. It won’t work. The more they try to grab to power from national governments, the more countries, especially those in Eastern Europe, will fight back.
Then sensible thing for the EU would be to negotiate a deal that is fair both them and the UK, but they’re so obsessed with keeping the EU together without reform, that they’d rather shoot themselves in the head than act in a mature, responsible manner. Well fuck ’em. We have the option to walk away from the EU right now, and we should exercise that option. Wave goodbye right now. The EU is just 27 countries, not including us, out of a planet of 196 countries. If they won’t work with us, plenty of others will.
