More EU Constitution Reform Treaty fun from England Expects...
Just to recap, what this will mean is that under the new Constitution there will be the liklihood of a European Public law offical, The European Public Prosecutor, who will be able to order British police to arrest somebody in Britain for a crime, (such as the thought crimes of racism and xenophobia [PDF] (page 14)) which is not a crime in Britain.

Then under the European Arrest Warrant the individual can be extradited to a European country where they can be held without charge at the judge's pleasure (remember the plane spotters in Greece), and then flung into a foreign goal.

If anyone has ever wondered what it's like to live in a totalitarian state... well, we're going to find out fairly shortly.

If you know about this, fair does, if not I have taken it upon myself to spread the word through the MSB (main stream bloggers).

Flung into a foreign goal? Dear GOD, they are literally making sport with us. Damn you, foreign people!

Maybe for the best, in a perverted way...

Although people have a deep antipathy towards the EU, many don't see it as a direct threat upon their lives. It would take some flexing of these sort of powers before real pressure would start to mount - at which time, withdrawal would be the only option, any ability to simply modify our terms of membership having been signed away by our leaders.

Similarly, let's hope for an election victory for the Goblin King in the (not too distant) near future. People will need to see the economy truly go tits up before the scales fall from their eyes - just as they needed a second term of Bush in the States to realise what a twat he is. The disaster needs to be obvious, and impossible to blame on others, before many will see the failure as inherent to the ideology of National Socialism.

A victory for GB would also throw the Tories into complete disarray - the infighting between the old right and the modernisers would be truly fierce, and it could take them years to recover, if they ever did, in their current form as a 'broad church'.

All somewhat gloomy (in the short term) for the country that I love. However, all possibly vital to enable Joe Public to see what's really going on, and to start thinking less about shopping and more about what sort of world that they want to live in. All of these miserable events could open up a yawning political chasm, into which a truly libertarian party could step.

Every cloud...

Let us hope, RabidBadger, that this is the case...

RabidBadger, I doubt this will be the case, and if it does happen it will be very bloody and not at all nice.

A Libertarian party that wishes to throw off the EU yoke will find itself outlawed. It will not be legal to vote for such a party inside the EU. This is why the Conservative Party is everso obviously bum-shuffling its way into the "valid" zone for pan-European political entities.


I am a firm believer in "prevention is better than cure", but you do have a valid point in that most people just cannot be told some things - they have to find out for themselves.

Rapid Badger, I hope that you are right!!

The German and French governments tried to ban a game called Enemy Territory a few years ago because you could play as the Nazi's and win and this falls foul of their navel gazing laws on glorifying Naziism. Under the illiberal EU arrest warrant, a UK citizen could be arrested and deported for playing that game. Furthermore, John Major signed a treaty that established that the Queen is just an ordinary EU citizen meaning that she is also subject to EU laws.

England is being kept into two unions by the Scottish Raj, both of which deprive us of rights and liberties and cost us a chuffing firtune.
