Two comments came in yesterday which were of interest. The first came by email, and claimed that several attempts to comment to The Tap had been unsuccessful. I replicate it here. It’s not quite natural, I suspect –
That’s the first time that I have come across a claim that comments can’t get through. Maybe this email should be seen in the context of the next comment, which was sent at the same time.
My text said – It’s very interesting to see Ed Miliband opposing the EU Bill. His brother would almost certainly have supported it, had he been Labour leader. The end of New Labour might be the end of the EU’s control of the House Of Commons. Let’s hope.
Atlas replied – HA HA you must be joking surely?
Oh come of it Tap, with hope like yours, you should be spending all your available cash on lottery tickets.
I would put my money on the bill going through by at least one vote, because this is how things are done.
Our politicians have form, when it comes to all things EU. Even Thatcher herself only started to get to grips with what was really behind the EU project, when it was far too late to do anything about it.
The EU’s masters long knives soon enough did there bloody work, a lesson not forgotten by Cameron, if indeed he is in need of any. Which judging by his efforts so far, he most clearly does not need any more lessons at all.
This is why our political class are only seemingly against the EU when in opposition. They are all liars taking their orders from civil-servants, that take theirs from bodies such as The RIIA. Who don’t just think the EU is here to stay come hell or high water, they know it is.
Manipulating the democratic process, while retaining the illusion of democratic choice, is a con-trick the establishment have so successfully and repeatedly pulled off on this, as well as so many other very important issues over many decades, that they now know the pack-drill off by heart.
Take my advice and please do not hold your breath as far as waiting for the EU to destroy itself. I would not wish to see a good man like yourself, die so pointlessly in such a painful manner.
The only thing the EU has the potential to destroy is us, as well as everything we most stupidly thought we could never lose.
For even if the EU seems to have done so, all that will happen is the same thing that has already happened several times before, when the EU has so obviously messed up in the past.
Instead of getting less or no EU, we will get ever more.
They will simply claim that the reason why it failed was because the EU was not powerful enough, and use it as an excuse to give The Eu ever more powers.
If we protest that the EU is not democratically accountable at all, they will simply make it more democratic, and therefore even more powerful and less accountable.
The people running this as well as most other shows are 3 card tricksters, as well as the most experienced and well paid con artists never to have been found in front of a judge, or a jury.
Good luck with your self-delusional wishful-thinking, however I have little doubt you will eventually come down to earth.
Or am I being over sensitive?
The post that seems to have got these folk all excited couldn’t be more innocuous. I commented on the fact that Labour and Conservative backbenches might be about to ally to defeat the EU Bill on January 12th – http://the-tap.blogspot.com/2011/01/labour-conservative-historic-alliance.html
Judging by the reaction to this blogpost, this situation is really bothering some people, which tells you they are worried. I have never had such a reaction before in over five years of blogging. See comments below.
