The Eurosceptic buzzword has reemerged in the mainstream media following David Cameron’s first EU summit. The problem is these reporters fail to actually address whether he really is. The important phrase is “self-described Eurosceptic” – and as we all know, politicians lie, so it’s the media’s job to have some discernment, not act as a PR agency for the government.
David Cameron is not a Eurosceptic; he’s acting. As long as he pretends to be slightly wary of the European super-state he can prevent the rise of opposition parties that make it their main goal to pull out of Europe and keep British sovereignty; that’s if they haven’t already been labeled as isolationists or far right nationalists. Lets face it, has Britain been given their European vote yet? An elected official who’s skeptical of Europe would swiftly put the vote to the people.
No, what Cameron’s done is said he’ll give a referendum “on further powers to the EU”. Other than forcing us to adopt the EU flag and remove our country’s name, what more power is there to give them?
All figures suggest at least over 70% of our laws are now made by bureaucrats in Brussels, not our elected government. They like to say that the EU is a democratic system, because our elected officials, then joined forces with other elected officials and then they elected some more officials to then have the authority to make the decisions.
The EU website itself states:
The main goal of the EU is the progressive integration of Member States’ economic and political systems and the establishment of a single market based on the free movement of goods, people, money and services.
To this end, its Member States cede part of their sovereignty under the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) which empowers the EU institutions to adopt laws.
Laws and policy are so far removed from the general public of nation states that the majority have no idea what’s being debated nor even who the President of Europe is. The British public never actually got to vote on the EU system in the first place. Neighboring Ireland got two votes. The first time they said NO, so they made them vote again until they said YES, while fear-mongering about the economy.
The majority of the UK public, at least initially appeared to be anti-EU. If we were given a vote on the Lisbon Treaty we would have said no like Ireland. In the 2009 European Elections the UK Independence Party finished second, ahead of the acting Labour government – giving them 13 seats. The BNP gained 2 seats with their Eurosceptic stance.
The big con here comes from the CON-servatives and David Cameron. In the lead up to the elections they actively campaigned like UKIP and the BNP to prevent the Lisbon Treaty, saying it would give away too much sovereignty to Brussels. While UKIP and BNP stayed loyal to their voters, Cameron (the real fascist) did a 180, a bate and switch, and went ahead with Europe like any other pro-EU party.
To expose Cameron’s charade UKIP offered to disband if David Cameron agreed to hold a referendum on the ratified Lisbon treaty, which they said they’d do of their own accord in the first place. Of course, Cameron rejected the offer; yet the media still have the gall to call him Eurosceptic.
On 14 June 2009 shadow Business Secretary Kenneth Clarke told the BBC that the Conservative party would not reopen negotiations on the Lisbon Treaty if the Irish backed it in a new referendum, which they did on 2 October 2009. So because Ireland voted yes, Cameron and the other Cons were suddenly no longer Eurosceptic. Me thinks they never were!
Ken Clarke is an interesting figure, who now holds title of Secretary of State for Justice, and Lord Chancellor, giving him significant power in Britain. Unlike the actor Cameron, Clarke is openly pro-Europe, and it’s no surprise considering he’s one of the leading members of the Bilderberg Club – he’s attended all meetings in recent history and sits on the steering committee with bigwigs Henry Kissinger and David Rockefeller. Bilderberg’s central purpose is to promote Euro-American corporate interests.
Cameron himself has attended this meeting in 2008, and would have been chosen by Clarke to do so. It is then certain that he is not a true Eurosceptic, whatever that really means.
It was the Bilderberg Group that pushed through the European Union in the first place. Belgian viscount and current Bilderberg-chairman Étienne Davignon confirmed in an interview with the EU Observer that it was Bilderberg that helped create the EURO currency.
The 1955 Bilderberg summary report, leaked only recently notes the “Pressing need to bring the German people, together with the other peoples of Europe, into a common market.” And “To arrive in the shortest possible time at the highest degree of integration, beginning with a common European market.”
Two years later, the European Economic Community (EEC) was born. Britain entered at the behest of conservative Ted Heath in 1973.
So to round off, David Cameron an attendee of the secret group that admittedly created the European Union and the EURO, who’s party took Britain in to the EU and who won’t give the public a vote on the EU, claims to be Eurosceptic.
Talk is cheap!
