Friends and readers.
Aren’t we the people lucky. First of all we get the exciting prospect of voting in the Euro elections, you know that’s the elections no-one really gives a toss about only those that want to get elected so they can enjoy the amazing trough that is the European Parliament. No-one really knows except the anoraks who their MEP is or what they do in the interests of their constituents. But that little detail apart this parliament has a huge effect on our lives as most of our laws are now made in the European Parliament and we the mugs have no right of appeal should we disagree with these faceless individuals who wake up with an idea which the rest of us have to live with.
We are prisoners of a club which costs 50 million pounds a day membership. A club which produces nothing makes nothing does nothing except suck up money and spout out MEP’s and bureaucrats that cost us a fortune. Ask yourselves this. Do you sit up nights wondering what your MEP does, do you seek out every detail you can get your hands on and scrutinise it. Of course you don’t, most of us are too busy trying to get by in this, we are told, booming economy. All we are doing is creating well paid jobs for a few by voting in these meaningless elections.
There will be those that say, oh no it’s important, it’s crucial we vote, usually coming from those with a vested interest. Over the time of our EU membership powers have drifted from this country to Brussels, and shows no sign of reversal. Our own elected Government has to bow down to the mandarins of Brussels, and are just overpaid administrators servicing their masters from afar. Nobody outside the EU pay’s one bit of attention to their ramblings and it has little or no international muscle when it comes to hot spots in the world. they can do nothing about the problems caused by despot dictators who murder their own people in order to remain in power. They can do nothing about the booming arm trade which causes such misery, in fact they hold their own arm’s shows proudly showing off their latest killing machines which they sell to anybody who has the cash then deny they sell to enemy states.
The argument is we are better in than out, and the weapon used is fear, sound familiar. Our lords and masters tell us that our biggest market for our goods is Europe, but that was the case before we were members, so what’s new. We are told that membership of Europe is vital for our employment figures, but fail to tell us exactly where and in what sectors. Costas perhaps or Starbucks, possibly Marks and Spencers, maybe British Home Stores, goodness knows they sell the biggest crap on the market today. Farage and his UKIP mob tell us we should get the hell out and take back our country, whose country exactly is this pompous git talking about. Not the average citizens that’s for sure. At least Farage is a little different and hits the emotional buttons better than the major party candidates but he spouts the same shit in a different coat.
So what do we do. Do we vote and elect more punters so they can dip their noses in the trough, and disappear into the corridors of Brussels only to surface come election time. Or do we not bother and protest this ridiculous club by refusing to vote until we have a real say. It won’t happen, so we go on wondering why we bother. Yes UKIP might do well but it won’t make a blind bit of difference, as it won’t if you vote for any other of the Euro gravy train candidates. Our daily grind will continue and we will still continue to pay for fatcats in a far off place crammed with those looking for a well paid easy life. Be warned don’t answer your door in the next few weeks without looking out the window first. If it’s some punter with a bunch of leaflets in their hands or someone wearing a rosette, open the door and tell them there is nobody in, and if they come back at the same time next year they might get somebody in.
