Whilst I was having my breakfast this morning I perused the BBC News website on my iPad and came up with this little gem
German MPs warn UK EU exit would be ‘economic disaster’
‘The cross-party delegation from the Bundestag’s EU Affairs committee was in London to highlight Germany’s growing alarm at the danger of a possible UK exit.
The chairman of the committee said if Britain left the EU, it would be disastrous for its economy.’
I’ll draw a veil over the obvious fact that it is none of their bloody business and the equally obvious fact that millions died in two world wars so we would not have to take the ‘advice’ of Germans – or as my father and grandfathers would have described them, Huns, and simply point out this, the EU economy is going down the pan. Being a member of the EU is working out so absolutely swimmingly for the likes of Greece and Spain, let’s stay in the club.
Now, there are two reasons why Germany wants Britain to stay in the EU; the first is they want another sucker to help pay for the bloated EU budget, a budget that is going to get substantially bigger as, thanks to the Euro, more southern European economies go to the wall – if you don’t believe me have a look at what is going on in Italy and Portugal. The second reason is cultural, Britain’s political culture is completely different from that of Europe, it is based on Common Law not Roman Law, it is based on low state as opposed to ethical state theories and it has been uniquely successful when applied across the globe. Again, the countries that have ridden out the global economic crisis best are Australia and Canada which have stuck to the Anglo-Saxon economic model. The US economy is also going down the pan because Obama has adopted European style Social democratic policies. In short, the Germans want us in because they don’t want a more effective working alternative model on their doorstep that would undermine the oppressive, bureaucratic, liberty destroying statist model of the EUSSR or the Fourth Reich, call it what you like.
So my message to the German parliamentarians is this. Go fornicate yourselves. We’ll make our own decisions, our parents, grandparents and great grand parents gave us that right and we’re keeping it.
