RIGHT THAT'S IT. THE GLOVES ARE OFF! FROM NOW ON, I'M JUST GOING
TO SAY WHAT I THINK!
Are you now or have you ever been a supporter of EU democracy?
Scunnert, That's a big question in a short sentence. At one time about 15 years ago or so I thought the EC was a good thing, bringing the countries of Europe together in a LOOSE association where different ideas and national notions could be discussed and implemented if they made sense to an individual coutry with of course the opt-out being an option if an individual country didn't agree. Since then and currently my beliefs have changed radically. The Eu has become a monster with frightening possibilities. In the last two years or so I have grasped what the anti-globalisation movement is all about and I can see a world where the it is split into five or so 'blocks' of countries with individual country's culture and Government taken over by the larger monolith. I want independence for Scotland but not in the EU, more like Norway or Switzerland as a trading partner but not governed by the EU. If Scotland beacme independent it would give England and Wales the ideal opportunity to renegotiate their terms of membership as the 'UK' would have changed radically and therefore would not be bound by the same terms of membership IMO. Scotland would then be able to hold a referendum about Scottish membership. I also fear that the aim evetually of the EU is to have us all microchipped for 'security' reasons so that the population will be controlled by whether or not your chip gets switched on or off by a satellite. You would need your chip to be switched on to do the simple things in life like using a credit card, using transport or banking. I fervently believe that ID cards are the first step towards this utopian idea which the banking elite agreed on some 80 years ago. Then agian there is the bureaucracy and cost. Why should we shift the EU's Government to Strasbourg every Thursday to suit the French, it's crazy. The Eu is not the cosy little club the French had with Germany and the Benelux countries all those yuears ago, so if we are going to have it get it radically re-organised starting with the number of MEPs each country has dependent on population. There are some countries with a much lower population than us with far more MEPs proportionately. That'll do for now!
