I’m back in the UK next week. It seems a long time since I was last there, and it’s a nice prospect to think of getting back into the swim. While I’ve been away, I’ve found very little reason to take an interest in the daily goings-on of Britain’s politics. The temporary staff are doing their bit to keep the plebs mesmerised with all kinds of non-events. Cameron, Hague and Clegg do the bidding of the real behind-the-scenes government, whose wealth they covet, and soon hope to share in.
One senior politician who hasn’t shown much of himself as regards his disloyalty to his country is George Osborne, but this week Douglas Carswell MP Harwich is doing us all a favour by highlighting the fact that he secretly agreed that Britain would take part in any bail-outs required in Europe, if the Conservatives were allowed to join a coalition with the Lib Dems and form a government.
The more we learn about the One World Government, the more we realise that all democratic government is a sham. It is, though, still good to see that there is still the occasional MP like Carswell willing to stand up and point out that democracy in Britain was cancelled a long time ago. How that will make a blind bit of difference is hard to know, but while one person can still speak the truth, there is a chance that truth as a concept will survive, and one day grow in strength. Humanity has an instinct for the truth, which no bureaucratic power structure can finally overrule.
People have no choice but to pretend they don’t see the truth in circumstances like today where we are continuously lied to by our rulers, but deep down inside, people know that a world based on endless debt and lies, has no basis. While one English MP still has the strength to state openly that he doesn’t buy into the lies, maybe we have a future.
Open Europe – The Telegraph reports that Conservative backbench MP Douglas Carswell has called for Chancellor George Osborne to be investigated for misleading Parliament over his role in signing the UK up to the European Financial Stabilisation Mechanism. “Officials used an interregnum between governments to sign Britain up to something which is not in our interests and the House of Commons appears to have been inadvertently mislead,” Carswell said.
Meanwhile, writing on Conservative Home, Open Europe’s Director Mats Persson argues that the main political lesson to be learnt from the UK’s involvement in the bail-out of Portugal is: “Don’t give up vetoes over sensitive areas of EU policy without first thinking through every possible consequence.” He notes that, in 2001, the Labour government gave up the veto over the part of the EU treaties which is now being used to justify the euro bail-outs.
“Even if Darling, or Osborne for that matter, had objected to the emergency EU bail-out fund last May, they would probably have been outvoted as the decision was subject to majority voting…Financial aid to countries that run into hard time for one reason or another can certainly be justified, but why make this subject to majority voting on such ambiguous grounds? Alas, it wasn’t the first or last time the UK government foolishly gave away EU vetoes,” he argues.
