Hague Confirms Obvious Dave Defeat

Who would have thought that a threat made at four in the morning would prove impossible to implement in the cold light of day. Before Christmas, while on a relative high from his EU spanner in the works, Fightin’ Dave was all mouth about EU institutions, but the dampening of expectations has begun this morning. A full retreat will be signalled when the Prime Minister arrives in Brussels this afternoon, but Hague has hit the airwaves to say that they were “not intending to take action about that now”. Another reverse move that could easily have been avoided. Many more of these and the words “defining” and “feature” will stick…

          Every day we get closer to the nightmare world of the Matrix, where we are mere resources for our rulers to use as they see fit.

          Long past is the day when I began to hate the political class. I now pray every day for the revolution that will rid us of this blight on humanity.

          There is no right, nor left. There is just this cancer in our society of people whose sole (common) purpose is to perpetuate their own evil and parasitical existence.

          I read today that Ed Milliband has personally schemed to rob an honest man of his previously agreed remuneration for a job that he does well. If it were a machinist in a factory nobody would give a shit. (Although the rarity of such persons would make it newsworthy).

          Cameron, whose first act as PM was to get us into ANOTHER fucking war that he refused to pay for, continues with his master plan to betray the English people. All to further the cause and prosperity of the political class.

          I don’t drink any more but I would buy and drink a bottle of champagne every time I hear of a politician being assasinated. I am too old but I long to see the British people rise up and take back the freedoms that have been denied us by these liars, cheats and thieves.

          History shows us that violence is the only way to rid ourselves of oppression. We are not allowed to bear firearms in the UK. This is not for fear of children being shot by mad monsters. It is to protect the political class from justice. The US constitution gives citizens the right to bear arms in order to protect themselves and to rise against corrupt government.

          Would that we had the same legal right. The tipping point comes closer. It is when the majority of the people lose all respect for the ruling class and hold only contempt for their law.

          “Amid doubts about Greek willingness to cut spending and raise taxes, Germany has suggested that a European commissioner should take effective control of Greek fiscal policy to ensure the country accepts austerity..

          “Philipp Rösler, the German economy minister, insisted that some external control over Greek policies had to be considered. “If the Greeks fail to do this themselves, the leadership and monitoring *must* (my emphasis) come in a stronger way from outside, for example via the EU,” he said.”

      EU Voting Song

      Jolly voting weather
      We are all europhiles
      We’re very clever
      And lie to you all the while
      You fell for our promise especially the CAST IRON trick
      We’re all from Eton, and you lot are all too thick.

      If you think I’ll claim back powers,
      You haven’t got a clue
      We’ll hand the UK to Merkle,
      There is nothing that you can do
      No referendums Changes through on the nod
      I am the PM and I’m a duplicitous sod

      As for immigration
      I know it gets on your tits
      I will flood the nation
      And pay their benefits
      I am from Eton; I am one of the ruling class
      If you don’t like it, you can just kiss my ****

      If I agreed the Treaty
      Things that it would amend
      Required referendums
      And that would be the end
      We’d be out of Europe and that’s what the public crave
      But I’m undemocratic, just call me dictator Dave

      Clegg is making noises
      Pretending he did not know
      If he really meant it
      Lib-Dems would pack up and go
      There all in it together, and David is now all smiles
      He has silenced the sceptics, with the aid of the Europhiles

      This has been a carve up
      Helped by Merkosy
      They need our money
      That is quite plane to see
      They played out the charade so it looks as if Dave’s alone
      But were still in the EU and we’ll pay for the Euro zone

      Jolly voting weather
      We are all Europhiles
      We’ve silenced the sceptics
      Look at their beaming smiles
      There’s no referendum, the sceptics are really thick.

      Exactly! The Germans agree to block the French, we agree to support the Germans when it comes to sorting/f***ing Greece. Which is really what this is all about. Greece should never have joined. Not without proper due diligence, safeguards and a common fiscal policy. Rose tinted glasses meant these weren’t followed through. Greece needs to leave gracefully and with minimum embarassment. (Dont spook the markets!) it needs to have a devalued currency ‘new drachma’ of it’s own or a secondary ‘miniEuro’. A new drachma means it’s left to the wolves to sort itself out. A minieuro centrally managed would also give opportunity for similar nations to follow suit eg Portugal.
      European stability comes first. This pact needed to go through but Dave and George wanted to make a point that the EU can’t just expect things to go through on the nod. All members are not equal in the EU, unpopular as we may be but we still carry weight because we sign the cheques. Unlike Greece who just cashes them. (Which for the record I believe isn’t totally their fault. The EU itself was the enabler and it’s only now their chickens are coming home to roost)

    I told you fucking Cameron was all mouth and trousers and now you English tossers are getting the message.

    Even with the Jocks and Welsh on your side you only total 62m.

    We in Europe without you lot total 440m. All your Yankee friends only total 320m.

    If you fuckers could smell the coffee you would realize we don’t give a fuck about you as all you do is moan with your fucking fingers stuck up your arses all day and make out you are so fucking clever and superior because you won a war which finished 65 years ago.

    Go play with yourselves I say. You will lose an export market of 440m. We will lose at most an overseas market of 62m.

    Comprenez- vous?

      If France is in such a buoyant state, why did Sarky and Merkel ask if they could control the Banks in London?

      I think you already know the answer to that one.

      Quite so. We are rapidly becoming a small island off Europe with a third world economy and standards. However, it will be OK by 2030 when we’ve got two new aircraft carrier gunboats fuelled by mothballs to frighten all those foreign johnnies.
