Deliver Us From Evil

The Commission of the European Union has issued a communication that bears close resemblance to any document that was forthcoming from the Politburo of Soviet Russia. This ‘Action Plan’ states that

“….the European Union has more than ever the duty to protect and project our values and to defend our interests…………ensuring that citizens can exercise their rights and fully benefit from European integration.”

to which must firstly be pointed out that use of the word ‘our’ by the Commission is perfectly acceptable only to them – because they sure as hell ain’t mine!

Secondly, it would be even more acceptable if those citizens who, forming a majority in their country, did not wish to ‘exercise their rights and fully benefit from European integration’ could bloody well leave!

The introductory preamble states that

“The administration of justice must not be impeded by unjustifiable differences between the Member States’ judicial systems..”

which can be read as the eventual introduction of the continental system of justice known as Corpus Juris. This communication is 69 pages long and contains 58, yes 58, pages detailing areas in which action will be taken.

Any one of these proposals can be classed as a transfer of power in that they remove from the nation state the right to determine the conditions under which they wish to live. A statement recently made by Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker, speaking about the Growth and Stability Pact, stated

“We have replaced government with rules”

and

“When you don’t respect the rules that replace government, because there isn’t one, clearly we need to reinforce those rules.”

– something which just about sums up the entire ‘raison-d’etre’ of the European Union and this Commission document.

Yet again the question must be posted: And the terrible twins (Cameron & Clegg) still believe they do – and will, in future – govern?

    Ta IPJ – very kind of you to pick this up. Mind you, was you that pointed me to it – so thanks again!

    I can’t believe Cameron and Clegg don’t know. We really must either leave the EU or renegotiate our relationship with them.

    This just gets worse and we seem powerless without a representative government.

    Page 3:

    Paragraph 3 – “In a period of change, as the world only starts to emerge from the economic and financial crisis…” Have they lost the plot? Perhaps readers should look at the video World Colapse explained in 3 minutes (see http://scottishlibertarians.blogspot.com/2010/06/world-collapse-explained-in-3-minutes.html) and ask if such an emergence is possible.

    Page 4:

    Paragraph 1 – Firstly, the increased role of the European Parliament as co-legislator in most areas and the greater involvement of national parliaments will make the EU more accountable for its actions in the interests of the citizen and enhance the democratic legitimacy of the Union. Influence or direct control over the individual countries parliaments and therefore its laws? It continues, “Secondly, the introduction of qualified majority voting in the Council for most policy areas will streamline decision-making.” Mob rule over minorities.

    There were many areas, as I read through the 69 pages, that will raise questions (if not get certain people’s backs up). I found this one within minutes…

    (Again, page 4:)

    “2. Ensuring the protection of fundamental rights
    The protection of the rights enshrined in the Charter of Fundamental Rights, which should become the compass for all EU law and policies, needs to be given full effect and its rights made tangible and effective. The commission will apply a “Zero Tolerance Policy” as regards violations of the Charter. The Commission will reinforce its mechanisms to ensure compliance with the Charter and report on it to the European Parliament and Council. In a global society characterised by rapid technological change where information exchange
    knows no borders, it is particularly important that privacy must be preserved. The Union must ensure that the fundamental right to data protection is consistently applied. We need to strengthen the EU’s stance in protecting the personal data of the individual in the context of all EU policies, including law enforcement and crime prevention as well as in our international relations.” I ask the question, How does this tie in with the European Union (EU) Directive 2006/24/EC??? (or mandatory data retention directive)

    Are they, perhaps, hoping for Stockholm syndrome on this Stockholm Programme?

    • I ask the question, How does this tie in with the European Union (EU) Directive 2006/24/EC??? (or mandatory data retention directive).

      Because they are refering to themselves, not us. Data Protection only applies when you want to see, but information ‘exchange
      knows no borders’ when it applies to them or their corporate ‘partners’.

      This explains Cameron’s U-turn on medical records, the big brother NIR (but especially all the baby brothers) and the sharing of passenger data.

  4. Wormit Steve says:

    Actually they touch upon it on page 4 paragraph 2:

    “The Union must therefore be determined in responding to the expectations and concerns of our citizens. The Union must resist tendencies to treat security, justice and fundamental rights in isolation from one another. They go hand in hand in a coherent approach to meet the challenges of today and the years to come.” and in other areas.

    It would seem the mask is slowly dropping away to reveal ever more truth.
