Our democracy was not presented last week on a plate. It took centuries of struggle to create and from 1940 to 1945 terrible sacrifices to defend and preserve. It was bequeathed to us by giants, it has been signed away by midgets.
Now we have a chance, one last, foolishly offered chance to tell those fat cats who so look down upon the rest of us: yes, there will be some costs – but we want it back.
Just why does the EU insist that countries adopt their freedom of movement rules if they want to join the single market? Is it about trade or is it really about something else, something much more sinister?
Is the EU at war with Britain? At first glance that’s crazy! The EU has no army (Though they’re working on it), there are no tanks rumbling through the Channel Tunnel, the Luftwaffe isn’t blitzing London again…and they just wouldn’t would they?
Hang on though, bombs, bullets and Blitzkrieg aren’t the only means to wage war on a nation. There’s propaganda (as the BBC wages on certain foreign countries via the World Service pumping out democracy and the ways to win it), there’s economic means (such as Saudi Arabia trying to destroy the US’s shale oil and gas industry and spreading Islamic fundamentalism throughout the world via the mosques, universities and Islamic information centres that it funds), there’s diplomatic and legal means (such as the OIC trying to impose Islamic blasphemy laws upon all UN nations) and then there’s immigration.
Immigration? How can that be a weapon of war? Look at the Ukraine and Crimea where Russia has used the excuse of having Russian populations within those states to allow it to annex one and attempt to destroy another. Look at Hitler and his use of a similar excuse to annex countries. Having a ‘Trojan Horse’ population wihin another nation is a powerful tool to control that nation or to take it over…witness Pakistan’s creation of its proxy army, the Taliban, designed to takeover Afghanistan and deny India any influence there. Gaddafi, Putin and the Islamic Sate all either threatened to use or actually used immigration as a weapon against Europe and the Palestinians hope to use the ‘Right of Return’ to destroy Israel….feet on the ground are facts on the ground.
How does any of that relate to the EU? Well, just ask why does the EU absolutely insist that any nation that wants to join the EU, even on the margins ala Norway, must accept the free movement of people? Any EU citizen has the absolute right to move to any country within the EU and cannot be stopped from doing so. Why is that necessary to promote trade? It’s not really, a more controlled system that still allowed in necessary workers but kept out those who just turn up in the hope of a job would be perfectly workable. Prove you’ve got a job and can pay your way…you’re in. If not, you’re not.
So why does the EU insist on a free-for-all immigration system? You have to remember that the EU is first and foremost a political project and the economics come second as a consideration when push comes to shove…as with Greece when the EU was desperate to keep it in the club and threw everything it could at it to do so. The EU would rather see a country beggared than allow it to leave the EU and show that there is life, a better life, possible outside the EU, a route that other member states might be tempted to follow if one was allowed to do so.
Freedom of movement is used by the EU as a means to undermine and destroy the nation state and encourage a loyalty to the EU or ‘Europe’. It is a subtle way of annexing a country by stealth. It is a weapon of war. Force countries to accept large numbers of people who have no real attachment to, no loyalty to, no links to it and you, the EU, have a means of influencing and taking over that country as millions of people with no loyalty to their new home look not to, say Britain, as their actual home, but to Europe. Not British but European. Not Polish but European. Not German or French or Norwegian but European. And that’s the way those who are eligible to vote in the UK will probably vote in this referendum, to stay in the EU…and that is just what the Labour Party believed would happen as it opened the flood gates to allow in unlimited numbers of migrants from Europe…that was no mistake, it was a deliberate and very calculated pro-EU policy.
The EU’s free movement policy isn’t necessary for trade but it is necessary to create populations with a sense of a European identity, an idea of, a loyalty to, a ‘European Sate’….a constantly moving, rootless population without any national identity or loyalty, that no longer sees itself as British, Polish, Romanian, Greek or whatever and looks to the amorphous ‘Europe’ as its home.
Freedom of movement, forced as it is upon nations, is an act of war designed to destroy those nation states and their identity, their very make-up, cultural and genetic and the loyalty to that identity.
