Thatcher on Thursday – an illusion of democracy

Did you see it?  Did you hear it? The moment that Orwell was quoted in the Queen’s Speech.  OK, she didn’t have to quote the line in full. But it was there…

“He who controls the past controls the future, and he who controls the present controls the past.”

I am a big fan of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.  I think she is an outstanding representative for our nation. She is a non-political figurehead that the nation can unite behind when the country is on its knees. I dread the time when her son accedes to the throne.  But that’s another post for another time.

May 8th, 2013.  The day of the State Opening of Parliament coincidentally was Victory in Europe day. (VE Day, for all those indoctrinated by EU propaganda who think that World War 2 is known as the “European Civil War”, is the day after Germany unconditionally surrendered its war built on National Socialist ideals after its defeat by Allied forces).

I mention this because of a little bill hidden within Her Majesty’s Speech.

Her speech, written and delivered on behalf of her Government, is here :

You will not find mention of the “Europe for Citizen’s Scheme”.

Oh, no.  That is buried deep within the schedule of the forthcoming year, but it’s there.

The current 7-year programme of the “Europe for Citizen’s Scheme” ends in 2013. For the next round of funding, to 2020, the European Commission proposes to focus its budget of €229m on promoting a better understanding of the EU, its shared values, history and culture.

So, we will be “contributing” toward EU propaganda such as educating our children about the “European Civil War” (I’ll be sure to let my mum’s neighbour know about that one.  He returned emaciated from a Japanese POW camp in 1946), or how the EU maintained peace in Europe for 60 years and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2012. (Don’t mention the Balkans.  I mentioned it once, but I think I got away with it.)

Now.  Being one with a very long memory, I am inclined to remind you of this delightful headline from February 2013.

“EU to set up euro-election ‘troll patrol’ to tackle Eurosceptic surge”

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/eu/9845442/EU-to-set-up-euro-election-troll-patrol-to-tackle-Eurosceptic-surge.html

So, we can see that EU propaganda isn’t just about changing history, it’s about stifling debate, with the intention of maintaining the grip that the EU has over Britain.

Funds from the “Europe For Citizen’s Scheme” will also help people engage in civic activities through debates and discussions on the impact of the EU in their daily lives.  Do you reckon that I will be able to access that fund to express to the nation that the unaccountable, undemocratic EU is force feeding us Communism and we are mute… helpless as they stamp their jackboot in our face, forever…

In an amazing coincidence VE day was also the day that it was revealed that “due to the coalition agreement”, Cameron is unable to call for a referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU.  A slap in the face for every life lost in stopping the 3rd Reich from annexing Britain in World War 2.

Our Queen and Her Government.  Do they really have any power? Do we, the electorate, really live in a democracy, or are we living with nothing but an illusion of democracy.

I believe the latter.  President Barroso gave a speech a few days ago.  It included the words :

“Europe’s economic interdependence – so strikingly highlighted by the financial crisis – calls for increased political integration.

We will not get away with half-hearted solutions any more, and half-integrated institutions will no longer do. We will not regain the trust of investors if we allow the momentum for reform to slip once again. We will not serve our citizens unless we do what we have to do – all of it – and do it well.”

I shall repeat :

“Europe’s economic interdependence (…) calls for increased political integration.”

They aren’t even hiding it anymore.  They are that confident that the population is that neutered due to being dumbed down for so many years, that they no longer need to hide their intention.

They still have to hide the money going through statute though.  In these austere times, we are all watching where our money goes.

God Save The Queen.

PS.  Have you noticed how often the year 2020 is uttered from the halls of the great European Marxistopolis.  Look out for it – very curious indeed.

    This is all very concerning James and it serves as a reminder that there can be no compromise with these people. It illustrates the futility of Cameron’s proposals. UKIP and the true Tories within the Conservatives need to keep the pressure up.

    Misplaced apostrophes? “Europe for Citizen’s Scheme”? But perhaps we should be more worried about the Scheme than about the Citizen’s.

    Those erstwhile Conservatives who have run to UKIP have shown no stomach for the fight to save either the Conservative party or the Nation. Mr Farage is an engaging personality with a devastating line of rhetoric, but slagging off Rumpy and the Spanish Thug is no substitute for a policy of disengagement from the 2nd Carolingian Empire or dealing with the ills of a Nation governed, to use the word loosely, by 16 years of centre-left administrations and a bureaucracy imbued with a fatal attraction for the complete surrender of sovereignty to the EU. Richard North has made this point far more eloquently than me. in the next few months, UKIP has to make the transition from a protest group to a political party. Part of this will be to become more than one man’s plaything, however painful that may be. Get organised, and I’ll look at UKIP again. Meanwhile, I will continue to protest long and loud at the subjugation of conservatism to a small group of Back to the ’70’s neo-Heathites hiding their revisionist ideals under the guise of Modernisers..

    Firstly, sorry Maggie for calling you James – the title wasn’t up when I first responded – it was just called ‘blink’.

    @Grumpy
    I see UKIP and MPs like John Redwood as part of a 2 pronged attack and I support both.
    There’s no way Cameron would’ve shifted on the EU if it wasn’t for UKIP. I also recognise that there are still some good people in the Tory party and I’m glad that they’re trying to keep Cameron ‘honest’ – hopefully they’ll evict him before the next GE.

      Thanks for that, my eyes can stop swivelling. 🙂 The Nation needs another centre-right party which can appeal to those north of the Watford Gap who will never vote Tory but who share conservative values. UKIP look set fair to do that and overturn the Left-wing bias in the electorate. It is only what we will call for the sake of argument, “personalities”, that stop the Tories and UKIP from presenting the Nation with a right-wing alternative to socialist groupings.

        Yep, I agree. UKIP can reach people that the Tories can’t due to all the baggage that the Party carries and because of unpopular personalities.
        I think politically we’re witnessing some very interesting developments and I’m optimistic about the direction of travel. I think Cameron will have to concede more ground to the Eurosceptics over the next two years and I think an in/out referendum way before 2017 is a possibility – fingers crossed anyway.

    The financial crisis opened the way to full federalisation of the EU, which will be carried out in the name of financial stability, or ‘removing systemic risk from the banking system’. It will eventually become impossible to dissemble this fact. We will never be told this explicitly and using the F word will still be
    anathema, until the institutions are in place. Following a Federal bank, which dictates the major portions of national budgets, the rest will follow, with the eventual subjugation of all member states’ own electoral processes except at an [even more] minor level. The EU was always designed to be a Federation one day, and the process was always going to be long. The financial crisis has acted as a catalyst for the advancement of the process.
