EU Dictatorship Vs Ireland: Round 2

Daily Mail

Europe’s leaders are poised today to endorse a series of ‘bribes’ designed to persuade Irish voters to reverse their rejection of the EU constitution.

They will be encouraged to back the document in a second vote next year.

EU chiefs last night agreed in principle key concessions to Dublin at a Brussels summit in return for a re-run of the referendum. They are expected to sign the deal today and hope the Irish will deliver the ‘right’ result when they vote again.

It means the re-jigged blueprint for a ‘United States of Europe’ – now renamed the Lisbon Treaty – could be in force by the beginning of 2010, despite being rejected by voters three times.

And Britain will be fully signed up to it without the referendum Labour promised.

According to draft conclusions for the two-day meeting leaked last night, Dublin ‘is committed to seeking ratification’ of the treaty by the end of October 2009.

The move was seized on by the Tories who upped the pressure on Gordon Brown for reneging on a 2005 General Election manifesto pledge when the constitution was re-drawn as a treaty.

Yeah, and what happened? He said one thing, sorry, he PROMISED one thing, and did the opposite and no one tears down Westminster.

One EU diplomat close to the talks added last night: ‘There’s a wide agreement on Lisbon, but we’ll need to come back on some details tomorrow.’

Ireland’s Prime Minister Brian Cowen is expected today to confirm that another referendum on the treaty will be held. He will claim that securing deals on retaining Ireland’s EU commissioner, its military neutrality, abortion, workers’ rights and taxation laws means a second vote is necessary.

Well, maybe. Until the unelected heads of the EU decide to change the Lisbon Treaty at will, without a vote by anyone anywhere. It is called Article 48. These so called ‘concessions’ are just cheap parlour tricks.

Irish foreign minister Micheal Martin said the concession on a commissioner was a fundamental reform. Under the original treaty terms, the number of commissioners was set to fall to 18 and appointed on a rotation basis, meaning some countries would be left unrepresented.

Why do you think they are moving to majority voting? Mob rules, my friends. The EU knows that the largest countries are all fabian socialist shitholes dedicated to the Communist Utopia. As Valéry Giscard d’Estaing, the architect of the European Union Constitution states:

“We are evolving towards majority voting because if we stay with unanimity, we will do nothing,” he said.

“It is impossible to function by unanimity with 27 members. This time it’s Ireland; the next time it will be somebody else.”

“Ireland is one per cent of the EU”.

Indeed. So your wonderful ‘EU Commissioner’ will be out-voted on anything the EU doesn’t agree with anyway. Democracy, EU style.

Declan Ganley, the chairman of Libertas, which led the triumphant ‘No’ campaign in the first Irish referendum, said the summit deal was an example of the Irish being dictated to by Brussels.

‘The powerful elite in Brussels is utter contempt for the democratic decision of the Irish people in rejecting the Lisbon Treaty, he said.

‘It’s time to put a stop to this bullying.’

In Britain, Shadow Foreign Secretary William Hague attacked Mr Brown for his part in pressuring Dublin to vote again.

He said: ‘Trying to force the Lisbon Treaty down the Irish people’s throats again is not only a dangerous distraction from that agenda, it is profoundly undemocratic.’

He added: ‘If our unelected Prime Minister insists on forcing the Irish people to vote twice, the case for letting the British people vote once will be morally unanswerable.’

The ‘new’ treaty, signed in Lisbon in December 2007, was drawn up to replace the EU constitution, thrown out by voters in France and the Netherlands in 2005.

Critics say that the two documents are virtually identical with crucial powers handed over from member states to Brussels.

Not just critics, most of the EU elitists as well, including the man who crafted the original EU Constitution. Here are two quotes:

The European Commission
“It’s essentially the same proposal as the old Constitution.”
(Margot Wallstrom, EU Commissioner, Svenska Dagbladet, 26 June 2007)

Germany
“The substance of the Constitution is preserved. That is a fact.”
(Angela Merkel, German Chancellor, Telegraph, 29 June 2007)

The EU insists that it is needed to help ease decision-making within the expanding bloc.

Ease decision making for the dictators in the EU that is. What else could it possibly mean? The Treaty is about the centralisation of power, away from you and your country. Away from everyone and their countries. Don’t believe me? Read the damn thing.

Open Europe director Lorraine Mullally said: ‘This whole process is nothing but a charade to make it look as though people’s concerns about the treaty have been addressed. The Irish ‘No’ vote is being ignored in a most dishonest way.’

From IRELAND SAYS NO TO LISBON TREATY!!

People have to realise that their respective governments do not act in their best interests or in the interests of their Laws. This has been decades in the planning and implementing and we are now in the final stages of their endgame for the European Superstate;

Former Soviet dissident Vladimir Bukovksy, who personally saw secret documents in 1992 which outlined a conspiracy to turn the European Union into a Socialist dictatorship;

The Soviet files outlined a plan from the mid-1980’s onwards to hijack the European Union and turn it into what Bukovksy calls the EUSSR, a totalitarian federal superstate with no accountability or direct representation.

UK government forges ahead with retention of personal Internet data

Note the underlying EU Directive that is forcing this through in Britain, as the police state structure is expanded, the number of EU Directives being enforced will increase rapidly.

Source: European Digital Rights

UK government intends to oblige ISPs and telephone companies to keep Internet personal data traffic for at least 12 months and local, health authorities and lots of other public bodies are to be given access to details of everyone’s personal Internet information.

On 15 August 2008, the Home Office published a consultation paper which makes clear that the personal data will now be available for crime and public order investigations and may even be used to prevent people self-harming. Furthermore, as the measure is the result of an EU directive, the data will be made available to public investigators across Europe.

The measure will cover VOIP as well and access to personal Internet and text data will be available to all public bodies licensed under the 2000 Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (RIPA), meaning that hundreds of public bodies including local councils, health authorities, the Health and Safety Commission, the Food Standards Agency or Ofsted (the education standards watchdog), may require telecom companies to hand them over the personal data.

UK government intends to go further by introducing a draft communications bill this autumn which would require all the telecommunications companies to hand over this data to one central “super” database. The police and other public authorities will be able to access this database directly without having to make a request to the company which keeps the records.

The database had been planned to be bundled with the EU Data Retention Directive that is to be legally implemented in UK by March 2009. The consultation paper published by the Home Office is meant to transpose the Directive as a standalone statutory instrument. Laws made by statutory instruments do not need a Parliament vote.

UK binmen refuse to take away bags of grass cuttings because they’re too heavy!

Another example of the pathetic health and safety culture decimating British society. EU Directive, anyone?

Source: Daily Mail

She is 5ft 5in and only seven stone, but Mia Cousins had no problem carrying bags of grass cuttings 50 yards from her garden to the roadside ready for disposal.

The same did not apply, however, to the four burly binmen on the council’s ‘green’ collection run.

The three loaders and a driver left a note on the recycling sacks saying they had not been moved because they were too heavy.

The council at Fareham, Hampshire, has defended its binmen claiming they were acting within their rights under Health and Safety Executive rules on ‘ excessive manual handling risks’.

But Mrs Cousins, a 41-year-old widow and head of retail for the clothing chain Warehouse, said: ‘I’m incensed by this. If I can carry the bin bags then so should they.

‘Binmen are supposed to be quite strong. They’re supposed to pick things up. They wouldn’t be able to do their job if they were weedy.’ Continue reading



Taxpayers to pay £50m for the ‘right’ to have their phone, email and internet records accessed by their council, for ANY offence

The British Government, stripping you of all of your birthrights and pushing the nation into a Communist Dictatorship ‘to protect you’.

Source: Daily Mail

Council snoopers will be given even greater powers to pry into our phone, email and internet records  –  landing the taxpayer with a bill of almost £50million.

Town halls, along with the police, security services, health authorities and other public bodies, will have access to ‘ communication’ records of anyone suspected of involvement in even the most minor crime.

The powers, which stem from an EU directive supposedly designed to catch terrorists, will even allow police to track down those who have told friends they are planning to harm themselves.

Well surprise surprise! From an EU Directive. Did you get a say in this, did anyone ask you? Of course not. What you think is irrelevant, you exist only to give your Rulers Money and Power so they can pursue their dream of unelected, unaccountable global government (at your social, financial, legal, psychological expense), so shut up and do what you are told, serf. It is to ‘protect you’ from terrorism after all.

But it will cost the taxpayer £46.58million over eight years to compensate mobile phone companies and internet firms for storing and providing the data.

Critics said the measure took Britain a step closer to becoming a surveillance state. Continue reading



Selling land by the acre to be banned under new EU ruling

Another regulation from the unelected EU rolls over our Sovereignty…

Source: Daily Mail

People in Britain will lose the right to sell land in acres under a new Brussels ruling nodded through by the Government.

In a low-key meeting, a junior minister agreed last week to abolish the ancient imperial measurement and replace it with the metric equivalent ‘hectare’ from 2010.

The UK previously had an opt-out, technically known as a ‘derogation’, from the EU’s use of some metric measurements, which allowed the continued use of acres for the pruposes of land registration.

But from January 1, 2010, the unit, which dates back to the 13th century, will be banned.

The decision was buried deep within the small print of EU directive 80/181/EEC on agriculture and fisheries and revealed by the Tories.

‘This is this kind of pointless interference into the nooks and crannies of our national life that frustrates people about the EU,’ said shadow Europe minister Mark Francois.

‘Whether we use hectares or acres should be a matter for Britain to decide, not the EU.

‘Once again this weak Labour Government has meekly given up yet another of Britain’s rights to Brussels.

‘They need to think again and insist that we must keep our right to use our ancient traditional measure of land if we wish.’

Successive British governments have been under pressure from Brussels to announce a date for phasing out imperial measures altogether, with the latest deadline set for 2009.

Last year, however, the European Commission and Parliament announced that it would no longer be seeking their extinction.

It followed campaigns by Britons dubbed ‘Metric Martyrs’ who have fought for years to stop the march of new measurements from Europe. Continue reading



In the wake of the Irish No Vote on the Lisbon Treaty…

The battle is just beginning. Pro-EU MEP’s show their total disregard for the Irish vote (and in effect, the sentiments of the majority of Europe) as they consider their quest for the European Supranational State of greater authority than the democratic process and their own Rule of Law. Pay close attention to the language of the EU Nationalists in this video.
