The Last European Commission to Govern Britain - Nigel Farage

Posted on 10/22/2014 3:50:37 AM PDT by UKrepublican


Mr Juncker, as you present this morning your new Commission, you tell us that they're all in the Last-Chance Saloon. Well, I'll tell you what, I'll come and see you there. But you're going to have to introduce me to them, because this is pretty much a bunch of non-entities, unknown. I spoke to MEPs this morning who will be voting later, and most of them couldn't even name half of them.

And the one from Britian is so obscure, his name, Lord Hill should be Lord Who, because the British public couldn't pick the bloke out of a line-up and he's never been elected to anything in his life, which means he's perfect for the job - because I don't think that the European public or commentators understand what the European Commission really is.

The Commission is the Executive, it is the Government of Europe, and it has the sole rights to propose legislation; it does so in consultation with 3000 secret committees, staffed mainly by big business and big capital, and all the legislation is proposed in secret.

And once something becomes a European law, it is the European Commission themselves who have the sole right to propose repeal or change of that legislation.

The Community Method which you championed this morning, the means by which the European Commission makes law and holds law, is actually the very enemy of the concept of democracy itself. Because it means in any member state there is nothing the electorate can do to change a single piece of European law.

So we'll be voting against the Commission today, not on the basis of the individuals, but on the basis of the fact that it is a fundamentally un-, in fact, anti-democratic form of government.

I suspect you're in for a tough time with this Commission. You are going to have the euro crisis, which has not gone away and is going to get worse.

And you are also going to have the UK debate, when now it hs become unacceptable to the vast majority of British citizens for there to be total free movement of people extended to half a billion people to come to Britain.

Mr Cameron masquerades as being an EU opponent, though I note this morning that the Conservatives are so brave that they are even going to abstain.

I think this will be the last European Commission that governs Britain, because within the end of these five years we will be out of here.

Thank you.

Good Gawd!! That government sounds like a nightmare!

Two-hundred and forty-plus years after our revolution for self-government, and the Europeans still don’t trust themselves with self-government. How dreadful.

I am sure THIS is the kind of government “O” is steering the US toward.

Even though the existing model is an unqualified FAILURE

Was there any response by Juncker? Or just the usual condescending “yeah, whatever, dude” smirk?

Freedom isn’t free! Looks like UKIP is on the right track!

Oh they did, it's just that they are frightened of what self government led to (World War II), and therefore they willingly gave up self-government and freedom in favour of security.

Of course, you could make a good argument that it wasn't self government, or certainly not only self government, that led to the rise of extreme nationalist sentiment in the 1920's and 30's. And in any case, running rough shod over people's freedoms is not the way to prevent a reoccurence.
