Millions and Millions of Pages

Since its inception, The Commission of the EU has done nothing except issue millions and millions of pages of ‘directions’. It has not contributed one penny-worth of ‘growth’ which benefits individual citizens.

What is most interesting about the EU is that it has sort of ‘short-circuited’ the decline of the Roman Empire. Instead of centuries of decline, the EU is in the process of accelerating decline in Europe.

But I am not saying that the original concept was wrong. That European States should cooperate and solve problems peacefully was obviously the right thing to do. One can only wonder why such obvious solutions to antagonisms were not the rule rather than the exception in the past.

I have often said that the reason for WW1 was that the Royal Families of Europe fell out with each other. Perhaps they were playing poker and someone cheated. It is as good a reason as any.

What tends to cause decline is over-emphasis of minutiae, and a consequent expenditure of effort, at great cost, on those minutiae. For example, the ‘premature’ deaths of very old people, as a result of smoking, is seen as bad news. From a point of view, those ‘premature’ deaths should be seen as beneficial in that the sooner pensioners die, the less expenditure on pensions. In fact, one could argue that it would be a good thing, from the general cost of servicing pensioners, if all pensioners were smokers, who died 10 years prematurely.

You cannot have it both ways. You cannot claim that smoker ailments cost a lot of taxpayers’ money without also accepting that their premature deaths save the taxpayer lots of money.

I have not been paid a penny for my ‘research’.

How many ‘researchers’ in the EU are leaching off the rest of us?

What has happened, over several decades, is a very few people have conspired to take over Government of the World. I include in that number people like Blair. Such people have a sense of ‘destiny’.

But it has never worked out. People can only be pushed and shoved (nudged?) to a certain extent before they rebel.

The Brexit rebellion is imminent.

Break free or else…..

      Thanks for the link – an interesting read.
      Trump has backtracked on Globalism. But the tentacles of globalism have been sunk deep in the ‘body politic’ over decades. For example, the World Bank should be just that – a Bank. It should not be a dictator of life-styles.

    ‘Brexit rebellion is imminent’. I hope so.

    I rebel against being let down by voting. UKIP as it happens.

    But I wonder at what point people will start marching and really getting stuck in. At some time soon I hope.

    I wonder though. People seem to think Brexit is now sorted. Their attention has turned to other things. We know that Brexit is NOT sorted.

    Yes, people have to rebel and do it loudly.

      I can understand that businesses which trade with EU States want to be able to carry on doing so on the same terms. I cannot understand why that should be a problem. There are only 27 States, and we have embassies in all of them. All of them want to trade with the UK, one presumes, so why should not the UK make agreements with each one? The same applies to travel. People with EU passports can continue to move backwards and forwards as at present, as was the case before the EU was created. In 1957, I journeyed across the channel and cycled through France and Belgium without any problems at all.
