Let me preface this by saying that I do not know if what you are about to read is true.
But two different London newspapers – maybe more (I’m not polling them all) are reporting that Germany and France are about to propose a Euro “superstate” in which there would be no borders, and in which individual countries would have to give up most of what we think of as the basics of sovereignty.
At this point you might think I must be misreading the articles – if I were you I’d sure wonder about that. So let me show you this clip from the article in London’s Daily Express…
The foreign ministers of France and Germany are due to reveal a blueprint to effectively do away with individual member states in what is being described as an “ultimatum”.
Under the radical proposals EU countries will lose the right to have their own army, criminal law, taxation system or central bank, with all those powers being transferred to Brussels.
The plot has sparked fury and panic in Poland – a traditional ally of Britain in the fight against federalism – after being leaked to Polish news channel TVP Info.
Polish politicians say the plans include loss of control of a number of key policy areas
Polish foreign minister Witold Waszczykowski has blasted the plan
The public broadcaster reports that the bombshell proposal will be presented to a meeting of the Visegrad group of countries – made up of Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia – by German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier later today.
…and this one, from the article in London’s Daily Mail:
Plans for ‘a closer European Union’ have been branded an attempt to create a ‘European superstate’.
Germany’s foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier and his French counterpart Jean-Marc Ayrault today presented a proposal for closer EU integration based on three key areas – internal and external security, the migrant crisis, and economic cooperation.
But the plans have been described as an ‘ultimatum’ in Poland, with claims it would mean countries transfer their armies, economic systems and border controls to the EU.
That’s pretty clear, isn’t it?
Now a question – one that, it seems to me, British people should not be asking, but demanding an answer to at the top of their lungs: Did David Cameron and his pals in the Conservative Party know about this? And if so, how dare they not have told the people before they voted.
If I were a Briton, I would be out of my mind with fury over this.
