EU PLOT TO SCRAP BRITAIN
UK Daily Express ^ | Friday May 4,2012 | By Macer Hall

Posted on 05/03/2012 7:55:53 PM PDT by garjog

SENIOR Eurocrats are secretly plotting to create a super-powerful EU president to realise their dream of abolishing ­Britain and other nation states, the Daily Express can reveal.

A covert group of EU foreign ministers has drawn up plans for merging the jobs currently done by Herman Van Rompuy, president of the European Council, and Jose Manuel Barroso, president of the European Commission.

The new bureaucrat, who would not be directly elected by voters, is set to get sweeping control over the entire EU and force member countries into ever-greater political and economic union.

The article asserts that the EU will appoint an unelected dictator who will circumvent the UK and other governments.

Reminds me of Napoleon’s dream or of end times scenarios.

Under the EU constitution they have a “revolving” presidency amongst the EU nations.

I call BS

Because that's worked so well in the past with... when.....

Actually, that's never worked out well. Not even 2000 years ago with the Romans.

Stalin did have a fairly long run, but it didn't last.

I'll bet on freedom. You can't change human nature.

The EU is doomed to failure regardless if the EU constitution because of Nationalism that has run deep for ever.

They want to pretend that Nations are now member states, but they have a nationalistic history that will bite them in the ass and divide them.

The colony’s here were different.

All the stories have been told
Of kings and days of old,
But there's no England now.
All the wars that were won and lost
Somehow don't seem to matter very much anymore.
All the lies we were told,
All the lies of the people running round,
They're castles have burned.
Now I see change,
But inside we're the same as we ever were.

Living on a thin line,
Tell me now, what are we supposed to do?
Living on a thin line,
Tell me now, what are we supposed to do?
Living on a thin line,
Living this way, each day is a dream.
What am I, what are we supposed to do?
Living on a thin line,
Tell me now, what are we supposed to do?

Now another century nearly gone,
What are we gonna leave for the young?
What we couldn't do, what we wouldn't do,
It's a crime, but does it matter?
Does it matter much, does it matter much to you?
Does it ever really matter?
Yes, it really, really matters.

Living on a thin line,
Tell me now, what are we supposed to do?
Living on a thin line,
Tell me now, what are we supposed to do?

Now another leader says
Break their hearts and break some heads.
Is there nothing we can say or do?
Blame the future on the past,
Always lost in blood and guts.
And when they're gone, it's me and you.

Living on a thin line,
Tell me now, what are we supposed to do?
Living on a thin line,
Tell me now, what are we supposed to do?
Living on a thin line.

Legit. The Fraco/Prussians that run the EU don’t want the UK to be independent.

Though I wonder how they will enforce the deal.

Solution: Make the UK into the 51st US state.

*We speak the same language.
*We share a legal system rooted in common law.
*We share similar cultural values (independence, value of the individual, irreverence for authority, Christian heritage)
*The UK and the US are much closer to each other than the UK is with the continent.
*The UK could privatize all of their titled nobility — making them ceremonial with no legal authority, like “Queen for a Day” or beauty pageant Queens.

The new bureaucrat, who would not be directly elected by voters...

Let me suggest to these "planners" that, in order to cement the role of this new leader, that he wear some sort of circlet or wreath on his head. To make it real special, this ornament could have embedded jewels, even make it out of some precious metal.

I've wondered about the possibility of this too from time to time. But with twice the population of California you would be talking about 6 or 7 states, not just 1.

it’s tin-foil. Murdoch’s newspapers are knee-jerk anti-EU. The EU is increasingly stupid and should be scrapped, but not for the 666 reason (which incidently fits in better with the British Empire with Brittania riding a beast etc.) than with the chaotic, declining EU.

Not true. They've had van Rompuy as the “permanent” appointed president since November '09—a position originally intended to replace the rotating presidency per the Treaty of Lisbon. Now, the “Berlin Group” has plans to merge the posts of President of the European Commission and this President into a so-called Super-President with far-reaching powers.

The UK didn’t give up the Pound and use the Euro because they knew full well what not being in control of the printing presses would mean.

They would never give up the Pound for the Dollar for the same reason.

To accomplish this, Europe will require an economic collapse that threatens the social safety net.

Option A: Keep your national identity and enact strict austerity programs.

Option B: Submit to a new, consolidated EU that can shed all its debt and maintain the social programs the citizens are addicted to.

Opponents fear the plan could create a modern-day equivalent of the European emperor envisaged by Napoleon Bonaparte or a return to the Holy Roman Empire of Charlemagne that dominated Europe in the Dark Ages.

They have good reason to fear. We were told a thousand or so years ago that this was going to happen.

This is not a surprise at all. Everything that the Holy Spirit told us is going to happen before the return of Christ is happening, and will continue to happen.

Jesus Christ is man's only hope.

I'm sorry. As much as I love our cousins in Britain, they've gone much too far down the road to of socialism to make them a part of our union.

i don't think they'd much like it either, as they'd have to dump the queen, gun control, and a lot of other stuff that just wouldn't mesh here.

“They would never give up the Pound for the Dollar for the same reason.”

OK, good point. I wonder. Could a US state issue its own currency or is that forbidden in the Constitution?

Seems like we could make an exception to the new US state of UK.

I’d like it if we had a similar arrangement as exists between the UK and Ireland. Free trade, free movement of people and defacto common citizenship, but with seperate and completely independent governments.
Legally speaking there is almost no difference between an Irish and a British citizen living in either country and it has worked pretty well over the past 90 years or so...

Actually it reminds me more of Hitler’s ambitions for Europe. I mean, Europe is almost “Judenrein” and now it will be controlled by a dictatorship.

I figure the UK would make about three or four states, at least: England, Wales, Scotland, maybe Cornwall and possibly couple of other areas that would want separate representation.

But do we really want that many new Democrat voters?
