The Empire Strikes Back
Un-Elected Euro-Loon Scaremongers About ‘Future’

Eurocrat-ess Viviane Reding, Vice-President of the European Commission, has lashed out at David Cameron:

“I am mostly frustrated about the political leaders [in Britain], because what is leadership if you just try with populist movements and populist speech to gain votes. You are destroying the future of your people.”

Those ‘political leaders’ are also elected and accountable to the public unlike you, Ms Reding.

IMF Contemplating Mass Expropriation in €-Zone

IMF-exproriation

Christine Lagarde the French chief of the IMF narrowly escaped being charged recently. Her candidacy’s main cheerleader for the IMF was George Osborne, Guido had his doubts at the time. The IMF is searching for a solution for debt laden European states to stop the €uro collapsing. Stop spending more than you tax is considered naive – how will the ruling elites get re-elected if they stop bribing the electorate with their own children’s money? Option 6 in the IMF’s discussion paper on the subject is brutally straight-forward. The final act of financial repression is to steal from everyone who has savings with a 10% wealth tax.

You have been warned now – just like Cypriot political insiders were – don’t keep any capital in €urozone banks. The IMF argues that the element of surprise is essential for the success of a capital levy…

“A Labour Government Would Not Have a Referendum”

Former Labour spinner and one time librarian John McTernan has let the cat out of the bag speaking about Europe on the Daily Politics.

JM: I think a referendum is ridiculous.

DP: People want it…

JM: I don’t care if people want it. People want lots of things…

DP: Do you think it will actually happen?

JM: No I don’t, no. I think that a Labour government would not have a referendum.

Guido would wager that McTernan is channelling, accidentally or otherwise, Miliband’s exact thinking there.

That Tory Opposition to Lords Reform in Full

Guido cannot help but notice the irony of the very same Tory MPs who voted against Lords reform now complaining that peers should not be allowed to derail the EU referendum bill because they are unelected and unaccountable. Not only has the Tories destroying Lords reform resulted in the death of the boundary review, severely hindering their chances in 2015, but it also damages their chances of actually getting an EU referendum as well. Slow clap.

I Call EU App

Taking a policy straight out of The Thick of It, the European Commission is offering €800,000 in prizes to whoever can design the best smartphone app. Students, geeks, Romanians and Bulgarians are invited to take part in the competition, with €400,000 going to the finalists and winners of each of the two categories: Smart Cities and Smart Business & Industry. Guido’s suggestions of a Herman van Rompuy app that creates red tape at the press of a button, or a ticker at border crossings counting the success of Dave’s immigration policy, may not take home the cash…

Danny’s Roadmap

Danny Alexander was let out for the evening last night to give a speech in the City about Europe. The Chief Sec stood in front of the banner above, which he described as “a small illustration of our message”.  Poor thing must have forgotten when he pledged:

“The European Union has evolved significantly since the last public vote on membership over thirty years ago. Liberal Democrats therefore remain committed to an in/out referendum”.

What that picture does not show is the LibDem’s path is pointing straight over a cliff…

Emigration to Britain Gets Romanian Mayor’s Goat

Something to be gruff about for this mayor of two Romanian villages, who has got to be kidding when he bleats that his previously rammed towns will be deserted after immigration restrictions are lifted in January. Koller Gabriel-Adrian is cheesed off:

“I think it is possible that half of the people in Berini and Uliuc, the Romanian and Roma people, will go to the UK next year. In particular, the young people will go, because they don’t have anything here. They will go to work in agriculture and construction, but also for the benefits. My advice to Britain would be not to give people everything. You should take care because, if everybody goes to the UK, what will you do? Can you afford it? People do not have big salaries here and will obviously be interested in the salaries and the benefits in England.”

Future migrants admit they are preparing to milk the system:

“In January, the only thing left in the village will be the goat.”

Un-billy-vable.

EU Referendum Vote Day

How many MP will back Adam Afriyie’s amendment? How many who want a referendum in 2014 will put their money where their mouth is? What next for Afriyie if he is humiliated? William Hague is rallying the Wharton troops ahead of the vote, writing to MPs telling them to keep quiet during report stage. Then up afterwards is the key business of the day, the Margaret Thatcher Day Bill…

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
