The No Shit Sherlock department

In the Telegraph:

There is a growing sense that the EU has been captured by an ideological priesthood.

How many years has it taken the Europeans to realise this? That they’ve given away a lot of power to an oligarchy, who put their own interests and beliefs first, not the interests of the European countries, or the European people? All because they don’t have to answer to the people?

The European project is what matters. European carmakers don’t matter. European workers don’t matter. Young unemployed people in Greece and Spain don’t matter. Fulfilling the vision is what matters.

And this what Soubry and Grieve and the other EU loonies want to sign us up to permanently.

Update: Apparently powerful bureaucrat Martin Selmayr is now leading the Brexit negotiations for the EU. In what way are we dealing with a democracy here?

Mind you, our negotiating team is run by Olly Robbins, so we’re not much of a democracy either.

  1. I’m convinced that the fall of the Eastern Bloc is responsible for a lot of this. I think a lot of the people who like controlling other people, who don’t really care what the ideology is they have to espouse, just that espousing it puts them in charge of other people, migrated from Communism to other political ideologies. Its noticeable that Greenism rose as Communism fell and the desire for the EEC to recreate the USSR started about the same time. Prior to ’89 we were still in a trade bloc, by ’92 (Maastricht) we’d been pushed into a prototype State. I think all the control freaks needed a new home and the EU was one of them.

    Prior to the fall of the USSR they’d been agitating for the Revolution still, and were thus politically sidelined (and identifiable) – all the sensible people could see they were dangerous nutters. Once they’d joined existing political causes seemingly completely unrelated to Left/Right politics they were lost from view, with the results we see today.
