The EU racket: how it works

Screen Shot 2015-04-04 at 20.55.35Dalrymple answers your questions.

When politico-bureaucrats use cant terms such as ‘ever closer union’ or ‘the construction of Europe’, what do they mean?

The phrase ‘the construction of Europe’ is often used, but never with any reference as to what, even approximately, is being constructed. It is as if the entire population of Europe were being invited on to a magic mystery tour, neither the destination nor the experiences en route having been specified. The population has merely to trust the drivers and the guides.

There can be only one aim, one blueprint: a sovereign superstate that, given the modern tendency to centralisation, will leave the leaders of entire countries with fewer powers than governors of the American states.

Why are leaders of nationalisms — Catalans, Flemings, Scots, etc. — that threaten to break up long-established states so in favour of ever closer union?

Those who claim to want independence but who are simultaneously enthusiastic defenders of ‘the construction of Europe’ are enthusiastic place-seekers.

Ever less sovereignty.

Until that sovereignty withers away?

The respective nations already have such autonomy as they are ever likely to be allowed in the new dispensation to which they claim to be attached.

Why are so many members of the French and German élites in favour of the EU?

The European Union gives the French the illusion of power and the Germans a possibility of being something other than German.

Why does the political class of all European countries so strongly favour the European racket?

It gives them the hope of eternal life, or at least of power beyond the normal natural life of a democratic politician. It is a giant pension fund for European politicians.

Life is good

Does it not give them a bit of a break from chasing votes?

Politicians grow tired of the political game as it is played in parliamentary democracies with its tiresome and anxiety-provoking necessity to be re-elected every now and then, and want to retire to the sunny uplands of the European administration with its large salaries and even more generous expense accounts, where nothing so vulgar as an election ever takes place and where you can be important for ever, avoiding tax in perfect tranquillity and never have to pay for lunch.

Who, after listening to a conversation on a bus or in a bar, would want to make it his life’s work to solicit the votes of the idiotic participants, or to make sure he said or did nothing to upset them? Such would be a life of hell, of never being able to say what you really think, of walking always on eggshells, of being so afraid of saying something that is out of line that you are reduced to langue de bois.
