I've had quite a few friends and relatives who know that I'm into politics, asking me why Gordon Brown's Labour so keen to sign the EU Treaty against public opinion. And you know, I find it very difficult to answer them. The only answer I can come up with is that they are creating jobs for the boys. Today, Tony Blair is once again being touted as the first EU President by French President Nicolas Sarkazy. Of course Brown says that the selection of the new EU President has not been discussed and it won't be until after the Treaty has been ratified. There's a very good reason that Tony Blair's appointment won't be announced until after the ratification, and that's because the British public would smell one very large and very dirty rat if it was announced beforehand.
The EU is an excellent money making opportunity for an MP, allegedly the Kinnocks pull in millions from their pensions for their short service to Europe. Let's see how many ex-Labour MPs find their way into well paid and cushy EU jobs if this Treaty is ratified. Gordon and Tony's mates will be laughing all the way to the bank. If Tony Blair takes the position of EU President, he should be named Judas Caesar the first Emperor of Europe.
Today William Hague told Brown's puppet Andrew Marr: "If the Liberal Democrat MPs also break their solemn election commitment, as well as Labour MPs, then of course that makes it difficult for us to win a vote in the House of Commons." I think Marr did well not to break out into a cheesy smile at the thought of how happy that would make the puppet master. Hague went on to say: "Although those in marginal seats will have to remember that their breach of that promise is something we will remind their constituents about in some detail at the next general election." I Hope that is true and I hope that those who have sold this country out lose their seats. However there's a damn good chance that they won't care, because they may well walk straight into a EU jobs.
Britain is not the only country to be denied their democratic right to vote on their nation's future. A survey carried out by The Financial Times/Harris, showed: 76 pct of Germans, 75 pct of Britons, 72 pct of Italians, 65 pct of Spaniards and 63 pct of French wanted a referendum on the treaty. The entire population of Europe is being sold down the river by their own politicians.
If the Treaty is ratified, I will be asking my MP to put forward a motion for a vote of no confidence. If I can, I will, and I hope others will do the same. We cannot be lead by a Government that acts against the wishes of its people. They were voted in to represent us, not to betray us.
