it is increasingly clear that the EU is doing little more than stumble along on a fine line, on the edge of a cliff, like a stampeding flock of lemmings held together more by accident than design. Clearly the design is failing – though there are clear leaders amongst the 28 squabbling Regions and plethora of factions, that are largely being bullied along by the Franco German alliance, for whom the EU was originally created.
It is a very long time since the EU has put it to its people what their opinion is and as is clear the last occasion was the British ‘People’s Vote’ in the referendum of 2016 which received a resounding rejection of membership of the so called ‘Union’, in the largest vote in British history.
The previous vote was held by the Irish, Dutch, Danes and French on whether they approved the closer Political and Economic Union proposed by the New Constitution – which also was a resounding NO.
The New Constitution was rapidly scrapped and relaunched with a new name and a smaller point size giving the impression it was a smaller agreement to be signed with a new text, when in fact very little was changed, seemingly enough to cobble together an uncomfortable aliance that finally ratified ‘The Lisbon Treaty’ – a new constitution by any other name!
Now we see from the ECFR findings which surveyed 800 individuals of influence acting within the EU that the EU is anything but a Union – the brief summary of their findings below can not mask the fact that the EU is very clearly on tyhe verge of collapse – though due to its size and the inertia of its movement it is likely that once Britain leaves on the 29-Mar-2019 and heads away from the cliff to forge a new future and take advantage of the opportunities BreXit offers on a global stage, responsible for our own laws, economy, political direction and trade with allies and friends around the world – liberated from the malign influence of the EU’s founding fathers with their Communist ideals eg.: Ernesto Rossi and Aliero Spinelli with ‘The Ventotene Manifesto’ of Jan-1944 followed by the works of Jean Monnet with his duplicitous advocacy of stealth to gain his aims of a EUropean Political & Economic Union alongside Spinelli & Rossi’s clear aims of a Federal EUrope!
The steady collapse of the EU is then all but inevitable, as differing regions decide whether they break away and head landward or hang on with the near inevitability of plunging, lemming like, over the cliff having been effectively asset stripped by the Franco German aliance!
Clearly the disintegration will take time but the fracture lines are all too clear, as a number of regions are already teetering on the edge whilst others see their foundations sinking! It is my opinion that failure will become ever more obvious and the efforts of the unelected idealogues trying to drive the project forward have crushed too many of its would be supporters to recover.
The EFCR makes it all too obvious in the report below:
Expert survey finds EU troublingly fragmented …
“EU Coalition Explorer” shows the interaction, perceptions, and chemistry between the 28 EU member states.
Seven months ahead of European Parliament elections, the 28 EU governments fail to build stable and strong coalitions to achieve common goals, according to a survey by the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR).
The survey was conducted among 800 policymakers and professionals working on EU affairs. The results of the bi-annual EU28 Survey are published today in the “EU Coalition Explorer”, an interactive data tool which shows the current cooperation patterns, policy priorities of governments, and their partnership preferences for the coming years.
The Data shows, the European Union is split up in bilateral partnerships and small groups not able lend new momentum to the European project due to diverging priorities. Though the Franco-German tandem remains the core coalition, its relative weight has diminished considerably. And it misses to create a bigger coalition of the willing working strategically on deepening EU integration as priorities differ strongly. Other triangles, such as the Benelux or the Nordic countries, do not show balanced relationships. The so-called Weimar Triangle of France, Germany, and Poland is a mere rhetoric: Franco-Polish references rarely appear in the data.
Josef Janning, head of the Berlin office of ECFR states: “The EU needs a new centre of gravity with a group of integration-friendly member states. European capitals need to work on better mechanisms to increase their day-to-day cooperation beyond their immediate neighbourhood. All EU member states need to step up coordination with their likeminded partners. The EU Coalition Explorer helps to identify gaps in the partnerships for each country.”

With an avg. 1.2M voters per MEP & Britain with 16% of EU GDP and 13% of the EU’s population yet having only 8% (if united) say, whilst holding less than 3% of the various offices within the EU Do note The EUropean Parliament has no ability to make policy and has a Commission of unelected bureaucrats, thus clearly the EU is not even a pretence of being a democracy despite its protestations!Do note that many senior apparatchicks and even elected politicians speak openly of the ‘Post Democratic era’ with no sense of shame or irony and in complete contempt of the so called electorate – yet The EU & many of its vassal States/Regions are all too willing to slaughter people in Sovereign States, to impose The EU’s chosen brand of democracy on them!
Now as President Junker announced in his ‘State of the union’ speech 2017 the aim is to create an EU military force and centralise ever more of the decision making and control!
The imposition of a Government and policies upon its vassal regions such as the peoples of Greece shows just how far from being a democracy the EU is.
Just follow the recent EU display of so called ‘Democracy’:
France and the Netherlands voted against the proposed EU constitution in 2005, only to have those votes ignored.
Ireland voted against ratifying the Lisbon treaty in 2008, but then later under pressure & threats had to change its mind.
Greece for me was the final straw. It became clear in 2015 that it didn’t matter which way the Greek people voted. The birthplace of democracy had become its tomb. That was enough. I was going to vote to leave the EU when the chance came.
No political party of any significance in Britain took active steps to achieve a Referendum – the task was eventually taken by an Indipendent West Midlands MEP Nikki Sinclaire who personally launched and funded the gathering of a petition of 225,000 signatures delivered to Parliament via Downing Street, thus forcing a debate in the House of Commons on an IN/OUT Referendum, which led to David Cameron’s first consequential rebellion.
It was due to winning that debate, officially opposed by every party including Ukip that David Cameron was forced to include a promise of an IN/OUT Referendum in the Tory Manifesto at the next General Election. The rest is history & despite no Parliamentary Party backing the OUT vote & Government spending Millions of Pounds of public money leafletting & promoting ‘Project Fear’ to try to persuade the British people to Remain just as they had at the first Referendum in 1975 – This time their lies and threats were not heeded and in the largest vote in British history Britain voted by a clear majority to Leave.
Nikki Sinclaire’s OUT result left Cameron & his co conspirator Osborne with no option but to resign, sadly some of the other traitors have remained to try to hinder progress to BreXit, aided by their corrupt allies in the EU and \eu funding and bribes!
There will be little or no change in Britain’s economic position, if we leave the EU, using a better negotiated, customised & updated version of the ‘Norway Model’ as a stepping stone to becoming a full member of the Eropean Economic Area, where all will benefit, as we secure trade relations with the EU’s vassal regions, with an EFTA style status and can trade and negotiate independently on the global stage, as members of The Commonwealth and the Anglosphere.
This is of course dependent on a modicum of intelligence on the part of Britain’s politicians and negotiators but it also requires the integrity of Parliament to uphod democracy and the integrity of EU politicuians & apparchicks to act ethically and without their normal vindictive mallice.
I believe Leaving the EU will be turned into something of a rough ride by the ignorant and the corrupt but I have no doubt that in the long run Leaving the EU will prove conclusively to be in the best interests of Britain and our true allies. I also believe that Britain leaving the EU will prove to be the catalyst to great changes within the EU and hopefully its democratisation as without great changes it is indubitably doomed.
Do not overlook the fact that politicians have plotted and schemmed since the 1950s and we have actually been vassals of the EU, when it was still using the aesopian linguistics and calling itself The Common Market in the early 1970s, a name the bureaucrats arbitrarily changed to EUropean Union in the early 1990s as they worked towards their long term goals of an ever closer centrally controlled Political and economic Union with its own anthem, currency, flag and rigid central control by its self appointed bureacrats towards a new Empirate –
It will take many years to rectify the mess our political class got us into and we have no other peacefull means by which to extricate ourselves than to depend on that self same self styled elite, who all too often forget they work for us!
One huge benefit of BreXit will be that we can negotiate with bodies like the WTO, UN, WHO, IMF, CODEX and the like, directly, in our own interest and that of our partners around the world, in both the Commonwealth and the Anglosphere at large; rather than having negotiations and terms imposed by unelected EU bureacrats and their interpretation of the rules handed down, as if they were some great achievement of the EU’s!The greatest change and benefit will be political, as we improve our democracy and self determination, with the ability to deselect and elect our own Government, with an improved Westminster structure, see >Harrogate Agenda<.
