EU Spanner for Dave

eu-dave-chamberlain

Though the PM has rescued a dying lamb, there probably won’t be a triple dip recession and set the dividing lines for next election that see Labour playing to the wrong crowd and arguing against every cut in benefits, it’s not all good news. The FT reports those EU renegotiations are going well:

“The Foreign Office invited Berlin and Paris to take part in its so-called “balance of competences” study, which is examining whether powers should flow back from Brussels. But after high-level discussions between the French and German governments, they have decided not to assist the British review. The exercise, launched in July, has been blackballed by most other member states as well…”

That should help stop the UKIP vote haemorrhage.

        Exactly – how could the UK compete with Turkey when it gets cheap £80m loans from the EU for a new Ford Transit factory and at the same time shut down the UK Ford Transit factory..!?!?

        So lets get this straight… Turkey not yet a member of the EU, gets funding from the EU for a new Ford factory, Ford shut down the factory in the UK and open the new one in Turkey…. So the UK is paying a none EU country to take away what miniscule amounts of manufacturing the UK does have… !!! You couldn’t make it up.

        And still those flat earth Europhiles tell us, if your out of the EU you will never trade with the EU… how come Ford and Turkey are perfectly happy to build a new factory then and trade with the EU ?

        The EU has gone bonkers, and its time to end this commie dream gone wrong in the UK before we all die in a politically correct socialist wet dream of BBC / Guardian inspired common purpose propapanda paid for by other peoples money, mired in debt and ruled by unelected technocrats on gold plated salaries and pensions.

          This kind of madness has been going on for years. I lived in Greece prior to them joining the EU. They were showered in so much money they didn’t know what to do with it. I took some olives to get pressed in a massive new factory paid for by the EU. While I was there the guy showed me the old press which was in a little stone shed and was powered by hand.

          The EU will not change. We need to get out now.

        As you well know, the MEPs have very little, if any influence on legislation in the EU because it is the unelected and undemocratic beaurocrats who draft and propose all legislation.

        The EUs MEPs role in legislature is very different than MPs role in the UK.

      With our career politicians, none have really understood or lived in any alternate systems. None have worked or lived with the normal workers of the world and seen how they view their priorities, and even how they ridicule the British system.

      One particular example of the inward looking UK lunacy, is MI5 recruitment. To qualify you need to be resident in the country for 9 out of the last 10 years. So a well travelled person that is knowledgeable about the world and has lived and worked under many systems is barred from jobs due to having gained vital experience.

      It seems 30 years growing up in the UK has no relevance. Why would this be? Do they only want people that have succumbed to the BBC propaganda? It was quite an eye opener to return to the UK in the Brown years and see the country from an outsiders perspective.

          For this I have lost my right to vote, lost freedom of movement that are available to others, been threatened, lost the use of my property, been overtly followed to intimidate, insulted and ridiculed. All by public paid officials.

      He couldn’t even plan a trip to the toilet for a poo at 10am let alone the UK’s membership of the EU.

      Lets remind ourselves of CaMorons great strategic mind…. :( and his pathetic EU referendum speach when he stated the UK’s interests were best served in the EU and that he would campaign to stay in, with all his heart and soul….

      “Britain is at the heart of that single market, and must remain so.”

      “Instead, let’s start from this proposition: we are a family of democratic nations, all members of one European Union, whose essential foundation is the single market rather than the single currency. ”

      “We believe in a flexible union of free member states who share treaties and institutions and pursue together the ideal of co-operation.”

      “Our participation in the single market, and our ability to help set its rules is the principal reason for our membership of the EU.”

      “And just as I believe that Britain should want to remain in the EU so the EU should want us to stay.”

      “Because I believe something very deeply. That Britain’s national interest is best served in a flexible, adaptable and open European Union and that such a European Union is best with Britain in it.”

      “And when the referendum comes let me say now that if we can negotiate such an arrangement, I will campaign for it with all my heart and soul.”

      So once again the lefty thickos are telling lies by saying the minimum wage will be ‘cut’ when they are only even considering freezing or capping it.

    Stuff the corrupt EUSSR says:

    What the fuck is Dave pissing about at? The EU club is sick and there’s no point in being a member, it is just a drain on the UK economy.

    He will never reform it by discussion at this stage. It is too late and too many EUcrats are now riding the corrupt EU gravy train for them even to contemplate serious reform. There will at some stage be a bloody revolution but as we are ideally placed as an Island and not part of Europe anyway it will be a lot less painful if we leave now, ship shape our economy and give then aid when their revolution/civil war occurs.

    Just get out NOW if not sooner.

        Those bleed’en Labour Socialist thickos just don’t get it…. complaining about benefit “cuts” and “bedroom” tax’s…

        If we didn’t have 500,000 legal immigrants each year + xxx,000 illegal immigrants arriving each year, maybe we could afford a bit of under occupancy and allow “granny and grandad” to stay in their 3 bed council house that they’ve lived in for the last 20 years.. where they brough up Wayne and Tracy and annoyed the neighbours with their Spanish holidays and 5 BMW’s parked outside whilst they were all on benefits.. maybe that dream could have continued for the “poor”.. but not anymore..

        As it is, we need to move Granny and Grandad out to make way for continued colonisation of the UK by benefit tourists and economic migrants from the whole of Eastern Europe, the Middle East and North Africa.

        We are also now getting a wave of economic migrants from southern Europe, all entitled to housing benefit in Westminister or Notting Hill, and all paid for by the ever diminishing number of UK tax payers (BBC employees are exempt as 70% of them are on “offshore” personal service “self employed” contracts and so pay minimal tax..)

        Do Labour supporters not realise their country is being given away from underneath them, they are being sold down the river and their wages are racing to the bottom from increased compeition, both legal and illegal !!

        Their jobs are being done at less than minimum wage by legal Eastern Europeans who claim benefits and work cash in hand, or simply cash in hand by illegal immigrants. You reap what you sow, and the working classes have fcuked themselves with immigration…

        Maybe when Granny and Grandads flat is taken away, or Grandad cant afford to watch Sky and goto the pub 5 nights a week, then… they might, just might, start to smell the own brand instant coffee.

    The reason for that is purely geographical.

    Are you really surprised that France and Germany would have nothing to do with anything that weakens the power of the Second Carolingan Empire? Europhile Cameron is being forced down a road he does not want to travel.
    2 years of waffle with no result was his aim and Carolingan intransigence has denied him that g-string of respectability. The futility of negotiation with those who want an EU superstate is apparent even this early in the process. Expand our trade with the BRICs, moderate trade with the economically sclerotic EU, unilaterally repatriate sovereign powers and get off our knees as aNation.

      As leader of the Opposition he could have spoken out strongly and firmly about the madness of the Bank bailouts but said not a squeak.

      If we had let the Banks go then a few people would have got busted noses but they could have all been reset by now . Instead we are all still suffering recurrent nose bleeds and are too frightend to look straight ahead .

      True the family Cameron would have lost a fortune but we have already had one set of riots and if he thinks berating the unemployed is a good idea I think we are all going to get another hit.

      There’s something not quite right about mr david bennet and his £53 a week.

      He says he earns £2700 per annum by working his market stall 50/70 hours a week. So he’s clearly fit and able to work. Not to mention he’s drawing housing benefit, plus other benefits.

      Why would any able bodied person spend 50/70 hours a week to earn £2700 a year when you could be earning far more than that in a regular job on a minimum wage.

      Secondly , if as he implies the £53 he refers to is for food and sundries presumably for one person . Then he should be able to live on it – certainly I don’t spend more than £50 per person per week on food in our household and we live more than comfortably.

    This EU was brought about through False Flag Terrorism.

    All those bogus EU agreements & treaties, that were signed by Cameron, Brown, Major & Blair, etc, have all been for the benefit of just the rich & powerful.

    Terrorism & wars are just a means to an end.

    Terrorism (In its self) never actually achieves anything. Apart from what the security forces have been handed (in the form of more legislation) the rich will continue to get richer & richer, whilst millions of more people in the UK will be plunged further & further into poverty.

    Its amazing isn’t it, this worthless government are cutting benefits as well introducing this obnoxious bedroom tax the unemployed are going to have to pay, when in 2014 the government are going to some how find billions of pounds to throw away on millions more immigrants that are going to come flooding into our country.

    It seems to me the real reason for the bedroom & council tax, is because the government & local authorities need this extra revenue to hand over to these Bulgarians & Rumanians, in the form of all benefits handed to them. If, these new batch of immigrants don’t get any benefits, this will become a humanitarian & human rights issue (the press & media will love that one) and the European Court of Human Rights will step in and overturn any decisions Cameron makes that denies migrants access to all benefits.

    Cameron, is full of shit. All the 3 main parties policies are almost identical.

    A significant enough of the British electorate who have been voting for (mostly) Con.Lab,Lib, have really been voting for Organisations who have been in the pockets of the vested interests for as long as I can remember!
