These evil traitors have one common goal: The EUSSR. They know that the whole EU project is unpopular across Europe. So, they know they have to lie to achieve their objectives, and they have no compunctions about it. It was Juncker himself who once openly admitted it. They are the enlightened elite, and they have to fool the rabble into going along with their so-called “European dream.” What is a little lie, if it helps bringing about “progress?”

And if they can’t fool the people, they ram it down their throats either way. Remember what happened with the European Constitution referendums in France and the Netherlands? They didn’t get to vote on the Treaty of Lisbon, subsequently.
