The debate surrounding our membership of the EU is framed in abstract terms. Phrases such as comitology, modality, subsidiarity, externalization, planification and modality bamboozle and confuse. They mean little to anyone who lives in the real world. But, as a series of revelations during the past week have proven theres a reason for that.
Firstly we had the EUs Habitat Directive rear its head. A railway line in England collapsed into the sea as a result of poor weather. However, it couldn't be repaired until an environmental impact assessment upon the local bird population was first completed.
Next, it was the turn of the EUs new E10 superfuel to take center stage [ ] WhatCar?s boffins discovered the EUs new superfuel increases fuel consumption and costs by over 8%. And ironically for a fuel, which claims to reduce emissions, it will actually increase them by 4%.
If you think that is ridiculous, then are you should be aware of the EUs looming ban on vacuum cleaners?

Deliver massive amounts of power to bureaucrats. What could go wrong?

And the Free Trade Communist Globalists in this country...spearheaded by Barack Obama...are trying to do a Free Trade deal w the EU
And, judging by the loss of sovereignty and wealth from other Free Trade deals...the US will be beholden to the EU if Free Trade Communist Globalists get their way
Well At long last somebody says it. The EU Government is a way for fat cats to enjoy a cushy useless life at the expense of every one else
That is what is being tried here too come to think of it
“Phrases such as comitology, modality, subsidiarity, externalization, planification and modality bamboozle and confuse.”
You can say that again!
