WAKE UP BRITS. MEMBERSHIP IN THE EU MAKES YOU POORER BUT DOESN'T MAKE YOU ANYMORE EUROPEAN THAN ANYONE ELSE.

This morning I read about the weak British prime minister, David Cameron, and his political grandstanding over having to pay a surprise whopping bill of €2.1 billion to greedy European Union parliamentarians.

Almost 7/9ths of the EU budget gets spent by meddling socialistic bureaucrats to subsidize inefficient farmers and to make richer all those living in many parts of Europe by making poorer those living in some parts of Europe. The rest of the EU budget goes to paying EU government workers and to bribe foreign leaders in third world countries in exchange for securing access to resources.


Why would any working stiff Englishman, Welsh, Scot or Northern Irishman beg to have another layer of meddling, leeching politicians bleeding him of his income for more taxes to pay for foreigners living in other countries likely who would not lay down their lives in troubled times for him and equally likely who might rob him when he is on holiday with his wife and kids?

Why would any working stiff in Britain yearn to have Poles, Lithuanians, Romanians and Portuguese move to his town in droves so they can offer to work for his employer at lower wages, undercutting him and taking away his job? Already, the working bloke must contend with massive immigration from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Jamaica and Kenya.

The working mate gets richer only when capital spending goes up. But when labor gets cheaper to hire because suddenly there are more workers arriving on the shores from immigration, wages fall.

Only in proportion as labor becomes pricier that it becomes profitable to use cheaper methods (capital) to amplify labor. But when labor becomes cheaper, it becomes less profitable to use capital.

The Brit working stiff pays twice over for his products. First, he gets forced to pay even more income taxes to subsidize shoddy businesses run by eastern Europeans of the EU and then he pays again to buy products from them at retail!


Wake up Brits. It's time to vote UKIP and vote yourselves out of the European Union. Have a watch of Nigel Farage talking about the absurdity of the EU.

Europeans can have tariff-free trade and easy-pass travel between countries. They don't need a massive meddling technocracy. The European Free Trade Association (EFTA) seems to work fine for Norwegians, Icelanders and the Swiss. They don't need membership in the EU to enjoy the same standing, effectively.

So why does the EU exist? Why does the EU operate as it does?

In short, the EU exists to give politicians more control over your lives and in so doing, give themselves more power. With power, they can reward their backers.

Politics is the great evil. Politics is the art of using rhetoric to steal property. Politics is perpetual, (mostly) bloodless civil war.

Politicians and bureaucrats get their property (right of ownership) first by confiscating it from others, almost always working stiffs. Then, politicians give what they steal to pay off those who back them for power — the largest for profit firms and unions (fascism) as well as welfare seekers (socialism).

And that is the world in which you live today. You live under a hybrid system of socialism-fascism, which masquerades as the center and goes under the phony name democracy.

If you lot were smart, as Brits you would exit the EU and strive to rekindle an Anglo-American commonwealth of unfettered movement of individuals and goods among yourselves, Americans, Canadians, Aussies and Kiwis. A global Anglo world would have an impressive GDP of £14.17 trillion (US$22.8 trillion), a population of 443 million with a per capita GDP of £32,001(US$51,484).

There would be a shared heritage, a common legal framework, no language barriers and most of all, no crazed continental Europeans.

Those being made poorer are everyone living in England, Ireland, southern Scotland, Sweden, Finland, Belgium, Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, Austria, northern Italy, north-central and southwest France, northern Spain and the Balearic Islands, Cyprus, as well as those living in Prague, Czech Republic; Central Hungary; Masovian Voivodeship, Poland; Bucharest, Romania, Bratislava, Slovakia.

Those being made richer live in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Croatia, Bulgaria, half of Greece, most of Portugal, Spain (Extremadura), Slovenia (Vzhodna Slovenija), southern Italy, Sicily, West Wales,  Isles of Scilly and Cornwall, UK, and the French foreign territories of French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique, and Réunion.

You put your cleanest dirty shirt on
Then you stagger down to meet the dawn
You take a ride upon a bus, it's just a fuss
You know it keeps you born
You get to know a morning face
You get to join the human race
You get to know the world has passed you by

Who cares? You might be dead
Who cares? You stayed in bed
Who cares? You wrote the note
Who cares? You might have spoke

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up

You take a snack to fill the gap
And then you're ready for another shift
Your attention was diverted
By the girl who smiled and made the lift
The radio is blaring out
It's in one ear and then it's out
You didn't notice that the record's over

Who cares? You might be dead
Who cares? You stayed in bed
Who cares? You wrote the note
Who cares? You might have spoke

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up

In the road a crowd had gathered
And a man was close to dead
The blood is running down the gutter
While you're yawning, nothing's said
His body's wriggling like an eel
They got no sense, no touch, no feel
Somebody better go and get a blanket

Who cares? You might be dead
Who cares? You stayed in bed
Who cares? You wrote the note
Who cares? You might have spoke

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up, wake up, who cares?

Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
