Disturbing, Globalist EU Witterings From The President Of A Wannabe Uperstate
Yesterday in Brussels the unelected President of the EU Commission addressed the EU Parliament for almost an hour and 20 minutes in her “State of the Union” speech.
This address is a relatively new EU delusion of grandeur based on the tradition of the US President’s annual State of the Union speech to the US Congress as if the EU were a country. Out of a very long speech I have picked out a few sections which caught MY attention.
On the EU’s disastrous inability to respond to COVID-19“
We turned fear and division between the Member States into confidence in our Union. We showed what is possible when we trust each other and trust our European institutions.”
For the reality of what the EU failed in, I strongly recommend reading two of my articles this year about the EU’s total unpreparedness for handling this ‘crisis.
The first one
The EU failed to help Italy at the height of its COVID crisis, (for which the EU is still not forgiven by Italians), but Frau von der Leyen is proud of what the EU did for non-EU citizens thousands of miles away.
“In the pandemic, European planes delivering thousands of tonnes of protective equipment landed everywhere from Sudan to Afghanistan, Somalia to Venezuela.”
You just could not make this up, however as we often see the EU are masters at it.
Then we have this
No minimum wages in EU law (but they exist in UK law)
Remainers still talk of Brexit as meaning the abandonment of supposed EU protections on matters such as workers’ rights. I have published many research reports showing that it’s UK law that protects workers’ rights and that the EU has done almost nothing.
Below Frau von der Leyen is forced to admit that the EU has no protections in place
“This is real European solidarity in action. And it reflects the fact that in our Union the dignity of work must be sacred. But the truth is that for too many people, work no longer pays. Dumping wages destroys the dignity of work, penalises the entrepreneur who pays decent wages and distorts fair competition in the Single Market.
“This is why the Commission will put forward a legal proposal to support the Member States to set up a framework for minimum wages. Everyone must have access to minimum wages either through collective agreements or through statutory minimum wages.”Conclusive proof from the EU President of what I have stated many times before the EU does not even have a minimum wage law.
Hello Remainers, knock, knock anyone at home? I only ask because the UK has had a minimum wage structure since 1 April 1999.
The Single Market isn’t working. This is the Single Market which the EU started on 01 Jan 1993, over 25 years ago.
“We must tear down the barriers of the Single Market. We must cut the red tape. We must step up implementation and enforcement. And we must restore the four freedoms — in full and as fast as possible.”
Readers may wish to note that the EU President talks of restoring the four freedoms. This necessarily means that the EU’s own laws have been broken across the EU, as these four freedoms are supposed to be sacrosanct. I told you that you could not make this up, didn't I?
Big Brother — Soon you won’t even be able to rent a bike without an EU identity card
Personal freedom and civil liberties? No. EU citizens will soon all be on a central database, unable to do anything without an “EU E-Identity” card. It seems they won’t even be able to rent a bicycle.
“That is why the Commission will soon propose a secure European e-identity. One that we trust and that any citizen can use anywhere in Europe to do anything from paying your taxes to renting a bicycle.”
Brexit — no great surprises here
“But talks have not progressed as we would have wished. And that leaves us very little time. As ever, this House will be the first to know and will have the last say. And I can assure you we will continue to update you throughout, just as we did with the Withdrawal Agreement.
“That agreement took three years to negotiate and we worked relentlessly on it. Line by line, word by word. And together we succeeded. The result guarantees our citizens’ rights, financial interests, the integrity of the Single Market — and crucially the Good Friday Agreement.
“The EU and the UK jointly agreed it was the best and only way for ensuring peace on the island of Ireland. And we will never backtrack on that. This agreement has been ratified by this House and the House of Commons. It cannot be unilaterally changed, disregarded or dis-applied. This a matter of law, trust and good faith.”
Whatever luv, I like the bit where you said, we worked relentlessly on it. Line by line, word by word.
Because you missed Section 38 that the wise old owl Sir Bill Cash inserted into it.
Section 38 specifies that ‘nothing in this Act derogates from the sovereignty of the Parliament of the United Kingdom’ into the Bill that Parliament passed in London.
I would now merely point out to Frau von der Leyen that there is now an accepted legal case for the UK to repudiate the entire Withdrawal Treaty on the grounds that the EU has not acted in good faith throughout all the discussions and negotiations. Get out of that one you bunch of Nazis.
Anyone a fan of globalisation?
The EU is “We will work for just globalisation.” (This was highlighted in bold in her speech.)
Do you have an alternative opinion on the EU Commission?
Sorry, that will soon be banned.
The Commission is putting forward an action plan to start making that happen. As part of this, we will propose to extend the list of EU crimes to all forms of hate crime and hate speech — whether because of race, religion, gender or sexuality.”
Couched in terms designed to sound relatively innocuous, the reality of the EU’s control on your freedom of expression will go much further. And readers will note the reference to “EU crimes”. I will publish more detail on this in due course.
I do agree with the unelected EU President on one thing
“Honourable members, the people of Europe are still suffering.
“It is a period of profound anxiety for millions who are concerned about the health of their families, the future of their jobs or simply just getting through until the end of the month.”
At least she got that part right. Not that the EU will help with any of that….
You can read the full speech here if you can stomach the drivel
This is the EU which is coming
I was warning about all this on social media before the EU Referendum (and since) but of course the mainstream media failed to cover it. Back in 2016, those who voted Remain thought they were voting for the status quo. They weren’t. They were unknowingly voting for an increasingly totalitarian and dystopian nightmare.
Many Remain voters have now learnt more about the EU and have changed their minds. Sadly it often seems to be politicians — who should be better informed than the public — who continue to be blind to the realities of the EU, despite the EU’s constant hostilities towards the United Kingdom since we voted to leave their ideological construct.
Yesterday Ursula von der Leyen tried to put a positive spin on things. In this, she is helped on a daily basis by the relentless stream of propaganda emanating from the Brussels PR machine.
