When will they ever learn ? This is the week when European leaders suddenly woke up to realise they had created their own nightmare situation in which they had lost the Brexit argument. The UK was back once again in charge of of Europe. You can humiliate British politicians, they fully deserve it. but what you cannot do is to humiliate the British people. for having exercised their right to hold a referendum and then dare to stick to the result. You can not bully the Brits as if they were the Danes or the Irish, or even the French.
The Eurocrats stood no chance of forcing the UK into holding a second referendum so that it produced the “correct” result, namely the one demanded by Brussels. And who are these so called leaders who strut the European stage. First and foremost there is Barnier who can not stop himself from planting sloppy wet kisses on the cheeks of men he hardly knows and then engaging in a form of bodily contact with females, he knows even less, uninvited contact which nowadays would pass in most countries as a form of abuse. His main problems are his ability to remain upright on occasions and to speak without slurring his S’s. This is becoming so bad that his office has to come to his defence and provide excuses for his outlandish behaviour because he appears incapable of providing his own. I mean it is not as if he has a drink problem is it?
The Italians most popular politician is a comedian and he is really funny unlike Barnier who is just an embarrasment.
From Ireland to Hungary the antics of Brussels are endless, Who on earth dreamt up the idea of having customs posts in the Irish Sea. Has Brussels not woken up to the reality that it can be quite seriously wet in there on occasions.
How many Euro states have adopted the latest Olympic sport of sacking their leading judges because they keep bringing in the wrong verdicts. Even Spain that hotbed of democracy has now gone as far as locking up some of its leading politicians, apparantly without a trial, so far, let alone a fair one. Poland forced ten of its top judges into early retirement during the summer until the highest court in Europe ordered their re- instatement, a decision for which they deserve much credit. The success of Viktor Orban, Hungary’ fascist leader, saw many of that countrys 3,000 judges begin to tumble and the courts being systematically packed with loyalists, loyal to Viktor Orban that is.
One weakness of the Brits position is the glee with which our politicians embraced the demise of the European court. They could not wait to start dismantling the legislation which has given us all the protections which we now enjoy. All of our human rights in the UK emanate from Europe. Before the EU we had the weakest human rights in Europe. We had no written constitution and as far as the courts were concerned they were emasculated because there was no human rights legislation for them to enforce. The welcome to the new order was a stain on our democracy for which many of our leading politicians should be ashamed.
Now however the people of the UK have woken up. It is not just a case of European leaders lambasting the UKs politicians. They have in the past few weeks chosen to humiliate the British people for the decision they took. Like her or not our Prime Minister is our elected leader carrying out the wishes of the electorate. EU leaders have deliberately chosen to humiliate her in public in the belief that she is so weak that they have already won the battle. The realisation this week that she has fought back and outwitted them, is now sending shock waves through Brussels and the capitals of Europe. .
Democracy in Europe is crumbling rapidly. Let them go their own way.
