And for the supposed guardians of our liberty to do the job for which they were elected? Leaving to one side the small matter of the 'EU Budget Fiasco' for the moment, two further stories illustrate one simple fact - that today the composition of the House of Commons contain a majority of those with 'Quisling' tendencies, at the head of which is Quisling-in-Chief, David Cameron. The two stories in question are those concerning (a) the 'co-operation between the armed forces of the United Kingdom and France; and (b) the Coalition, in effect, being forced to capitulate on the question of votes for prisoners.
Co-operation between the armed forces of member EU states has been on the agenda for some time and in respect of the United Kingdom and France, Ian Parker-Joseph posted a history of this 'oft-denied plan' by our political masters. Richard North, EU Referendum, has voiced his opinion on the matter which, as always, is well worth reading - and I cannot resist highlighting Richard's last paragraph:
"With it, our military heritage is being sold down the river by the euroslime. These are black days. We have traitors in our midst, surrounded by fools who've woken up too late, even if, from the Daily Mail comments, it looks as if the slime may have over-reached themselves."
Yet again we are seeing 'Democratised Dictatorship' by Cameron in that neither the Conservative, Liberal Democrat, nor the Coalition 'manifestos' contained any hint of this move. One has therefore legitimate reason to question their legal right to make this decision, in that no-one was given the opportunity to express an opinion on the matter - but hey, as with so much that the Coalition do and are intending to do, why let a little matter like 'democratic legalities' get in the way? An alternative view is that Cameron and Sarkozy are doing no more than their Brussels masters bidding, which must underline the point that the United Kingdom is no longer a self-governing nation.
To turn to the matter of prisoners being allowed to vote, this again is a loss of power by the United Kingdom by the loss of power to decide what constitutes the punishement of those that have offended the rules of our society. The Boiling Frog has hopped into the water with his view of this matter and states:
"One beneficial outcome will be that resentment of the EU will fester even more"
It has to be said that John Hirst, who single-handedly, brought this decision to fruitition should be congratulated on having taken the state on and winning. Needless to say, not only do I disagree with the decision but that someone who has broken the laws of our society can use those same laws about which he obviously cared nothing; and to regain a privilege that he should not have, really does beggar belief. Gawain Towler, England Expects, has a good post which raises an interesting question or two.
Finally, I have to turn to the little matter of the behaviour of those 'guardians of our freedom', that supine and cowardly collection of humanity that the people of this land have placed in the House of Commons. I can but suggest you read the Hansard account of Cameron's statement to the House yesterday and also read the pathetic, grovelling, 'please sir, look what a good boy I am by not raising too critical a question' behaviour of Cameron's poodles who were seated on his side of the House.
I have complained about the attitude of John Redwood, for example, a supposed Eurosceptic MP and the fact I have singled him out does not mean that he is alone in 'not rocking the boat'. Douglas Carswell speaks a lot on the matter of our membership of the EU but, other than that, nothing. As for the likes of Daniel Hannan, his 'opposition' can best be summed up by a cartoon in Arty Politics, which I can only suggest is worth following the link for.
Do our MPs not posses one ounce of pride in the country they profess to love? Do they not realise that by their acceptance of and acquiesence to EU membership, their own status is diminished? Reverting to Richard North's description of these Quisling MPs, that of euroslime is slightly misleading - at least normal slime can immediately be washed away, unfortunately we are unable to wash away these bastards until probably 2015 by which time the total capitulation of this country as a self-governing nation will be complete.
For our sake one can but hope their 'Ceaucescu moment' is not too long delayed!
