On the 23rd of June the country will make a momentous choice. We will either vote to leave the EU or to remain in the EU. If we vote to leave, we will have set in motion the means to regain control of our country and free ourselves to interact with the rest of the world as we see fit. If, however, we vote to remain in the EU then we can look forward to experiencing the wrath of the European Commission and the other EU institutions for having dared to question their supremacy in the governance of the nations of Europe.
I am led to believe that the next review of the EU Treaties will take place in 2018, probably in Tallinn, Estonia. If this is correct, the next amending treaty will be the Tallinn Treaty of 2018, and it will be a real doozy of a treaty. The first thing they will want to do is to either abolish Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union (TEU), or amend it so that it is unworkable in practice. Article 50 is the only internationally recognized way out of the EU, and they don’t want anybody else trying to make a break for it, using Article 50.
Having blocked the only exit from the EU, they will turn their attention towards increasing their stranglehold over national governments by taking over more and more areas of competence (not a word that comes to mind when talking about the Commission!) and giving more and more powers to the Commission. They will use the financial crisis (there is bound to be some sort of financial crisis still going on in the Eurozone in 2018) to grab as much economic power as possible. I believe that there is a “Common Pensions and Benefits” policy being discussed at the moment, but it is being done quietly until the result of the British referendum is known. They will seek to grab more judicial power as well, with the scope of the European Arrest Warrant being extended as far as they can, and a European Public Prosecutor appointed, to exercise these powers of arrest in all EU Member States.
Yet another big threat to our freedom is the fervent desire of the Commission to create an EU army. There have been news reports of the German Bundeswehr taking over control of Dutch army formations, and negotiation with countries like the Czech Republic for the same to happen there. This shows just what model the EU army will be based on! Quite why the EU wants an army when most EU Member States are members of NATO raises some disturbing questions. The main worry would be that the EU wants to exert it’s ego militarily, outside of NATO, in somewhere like Ukraine, where EU stupidity has created a conflict involving the Russians. I dread to think how an EU army would fare if it got into a serious conflict with the Russians. Young people today may well find themselves conscripted into an EU army to go and fight the Russians in Ukraine at some time in the future. I’ll bet that they are not thinking about that when they cast their votes in the referendum. However, the main use of an EU army is most likely to be enforcing the will of the Commission throughout Member States, and this is more frightening than a war in Ukraine. People who favour remaining in the EU say that there are no EU tanks on anybody’s lawn, enforcing EU law, but that could well change if the EU gets control of an army.
Politicians who favour remaining in will be quick to point out that there is UK legislation saying that if any more power is given away to the EU, this would automatically trigger another referendum. This may be so, but it will end up being as worthless as a David Cameron promise. I’m sure that the politicians will have many ways of getting around this, and I can describe one way. The Tallinn Treaty will have some little obscure clause inserted in it somewhere that will have some vague wording in it about the supremacy of a national government decision over everything except EU law. Knowing full well that all the national governments can be bribed or bullied into ratifying this treaty they will go ahead with ratification. Once every government has ratified the treaty (our government might make a bit of noise, but will eventually roll over and capitulate), there will be calls from some in the British Parliament for the required referendum to be held. This is when the obscure clause about supremacy of national government decisions will be rolled out to say that such a referendum would be illegal under EU law. If the vague wording of the clause is questioned it will have to go the European Court of Justice for interpretation, and it doesn’t take an Einstein to work out that they will rule such referenda contrary to the supremacy of national government decisions, and therefore illegal. Job done!
This may all be conjecture, but it is a nightmare scenario that could just come true if the country votes to remain in the EU on June 23rd. Please make every effort to ensure that the vote is to “LEAVE”!
