Barnier’s Speech to the Germans – the Low-Down – Part Two

Picking up from where we left off yesterday in Part One, it gives me great joy to continue annotating M Barnier’s speech, in the hope that it not be consigned to the internet memory hole. I’m going into more detail today because those whose job it is to de-mask our EU tinpot dictators, whose job it is to show us Brits what the Brusselocrats think of us, whose job it is to support all who try to defend our country against that EU monster, have not been and are not doing their job. So,

Ladies and gentlemen,

(someone ought to tell M Barnier that this is offensive to all LGBTXYZers and any guide dogs and cats (mustn’t discriminate against cats) who are listening!)

The negotiations on the United Kingdom’s withdrawal are a complex task that we carry out with reason and determination, without aggression or naivety […] There is neither revenge nor punishment in our mission.

Cue hollow laughter …

My mandate comes under a framework laid down by the Heads of State or Government and by the resolutions of the European Parliament, all of whom wish for an orderly withdrawal of the United Kingdom.

Mr Barnier really said this! He, Juncker and the rest really think this is how the negotiations are going. They are the good, wise negotiators – we are the unruly children who perhaps might still be made to accept some punishment and then return to the EU.

We are awaiting sufficient progress from London […] We are not there yet.

Indeed. The reason is, as Henry Bolton said on Question Time on the 30th Nov, that ‘our side’ not only did not go to work on June 24th 2016, they still have no proper plan nor negotiation strategies. I find it extraordinary that, after more than 500 days, our esteemed MSM still have not grasped the fact that the Whitehall Mandarins are doing their utmost to scupper Brexit. Surely that’s worth investigating?

[…] We hope that this future relationship will be an ambitious one ! And we want security, defence and foreign policy as key components of it.

There it is: security and defence! Look how ‘foreign policy’ has become just a little, unimportant adjunct.

[…] After its exit from the Union, the United Kingdom will lose its decision-making powers at the European level and some levers for wielding influence.

Ah – those ‘decision-making powers’! QMV means the UK has the same ‘powers’ as Malta. I do hope you all know by now how decision-making and ‘influence’ actually works in the EU. M Barnier and the rest seem to think that we should be happy to sacrifice our lads’ lives on the say-so of unelected EUrocrats, by QMV where Luxemburg’s vote has the same weight as ours. No. No. No.

It will, however, remain a permanent member of the UN Security Council and a member of NATO. It will remain a diplomatic, nuclear and military power.

Exactly! And this is the reason Brussels wants to keep us in. Hanging onto the coattails of France (also a permanent member of the UNSC and NATO) is not sufficient: they need us and they know it – but they need us to be under Brussels’, that is Paris’ and Berlin’s, control. No. No. No.

In the past, it is true to say that the United Kingdom has not been the spearhead of European defence. This is no secret to anyone.

Oh really? Never heard of NATO? Also note: this deftly implies, as remoaners and EUrophiles are fond of telling us, that it’s the EU which ‘has kept the peace in Europe’.

I’m getting suspicious, but let’s watch M Barnier provide more evidence:

  • The British contribution to EU–led military operations is limited – barely 5% of the personnel deployed.

Which ‘EU-led’ military operations would those be? Can we get reports, can we have facts, M Barnier? 

  • The British have never wanted to turn the Union into a military power.

Precisely, and thank God for that! In 1973 we voted to join a Common Market, not a ‘military power’. This juicy little aim of Brussels has been well hidden in the Referendum debate. I suspect the result would have been even higher for Leave had not our supine Remain politicians, Whitehall and the MSM kept this well out of sight.

  • The British have always resisted setting up a European Headquarters, although such a Headquarters would never compete with NATO.

Yes, indeed we have! And lo and behold, here M Barnier has let another cat out of the bag: a EU Armed Forces Headquarter would never ‘compete’ with NATO? No, because the EU aim ultimately is for the EU to leave NATO.

We’ve all heard too many politicians assuring us that xyz really isn’t what they aim for – and then go and do exactly that. One blatant example which we all remember is a certain Mr Clegg who in a stellar TV debate with Nigel Farage said that it’s a lie to say that there’s a EU Army …

But let me delve a bit further into the past. A certain Charles de Gaulle took France out of NATO. France has always taken the very long view with the aim of securing “la Gloire pour la Patrie”, working since the end of WWII for a unified Europe under their control. Just study the history of how the EU came into being. Of course, a unified Europe needs their own army – and the UK, paying its due in full to NATO, with renowned Armed Forces, is just right to become the spine of such an EU Army so that France and Germany don’t have to. They don’t pay their NATO dues anyway either.

So, lords, ladies and gentlemen: here you have the actual reason why Brussels must keep us tied into their wet dreams of an EU Military Force: the dissolution of NATO.

Forget Parliamentary Sovereignty which demands that our representatives decide where our soldiers are being sent to bleed and die: M Juncker and Madame Mogherini are perfectly capable of deciding this themselves – we just need to hand over our money and our people.

But our future partnership must be conceived to fit the geopolitical situation of tomorrow, not the policy and differences of the past. According to studies by the UK Ministry of Defence, by 2045 the major world powers will have doubled their defence budget. Some of them, such as China and India, may even have increased it fivefold.

Good grief! Shamelessly using our data, are the Junckers, Mogherinis and their speaker M Barnier really proposing that the EU (with us embedded, of course) must be able to fight wars with India and China in future? The mind boggles …

Let’s consider the title of your conference, ‘Security and defence in unpredictable times’ – who can say for certain that Europe will still be a haven of stability in 10 or 20 years?

Indeed – but on no account mention 2015 and the influx of that actual, destabilising factor: illegal migrants in their millions. Let’s not mention jihadis and terrorism … unless, of course, that lovely EU Army, paid for, equipped and manned mostly by us Brits but not under our command, is meant to fight insurrections in EU member countries – something many of us suspect is the aim. And look – here it comes, right in the next sentence:

It is for us, Europeans, to maintain this stability […]. Nobody is going to do it for us. And to me it seems obvious that we will be stronger if we cooperate to meet these challenges.

In other words: we must be made to remain so that EU Army boots can tramp the streets of EU member states to suppress the native people who dare take a stand against Brussels. It won’t be Catalonia, but take a look East and it’s not exactly hard to imagine where an EU Army might be used. Oh the irony ….

I’ve run out of space, so you’ll have to wait for the denouement until tomorrow when the juicy rest will be presented.

  1. Glad to see you highlighting the EU army threat to our national security. This is very important, and the MSM are shamefully letting it pass under the radar.

    Just one point, er… you write, “In 1073 we voted to join a Common Market, not a ‘military power’.”
    That is going back quite a long way. Actually in that year I cannot remember any vote taken in Britain, unless you count the Domesday Book. On the contrary, we had just been annexed through military conquest, seven years earlier, by the Dukedom of Normandy. Luckily Duke William transferred his capital from Rouen to London, so the country continued to be governed from a location within its borders. That is until 1973, when indeed we began to be ruled from an external location – Brussels. This was the first time Britain submitted to rule from overseas since 410 AD, when the Roman legions left our shores. It is a pity that in 2010 there was no move to celebrate 1600 years of self-government!
    The kings and queens who came after William I eventually stopped speaking French and became English a few centuries later. Then when George I was called over from Hanover to be king we had a German-speaking dynasty, but they too learnt English rather quickly and were assimilated.
    Taking the long view over history, and seeing Brexit as a parting of the ways between Britain and the continent, this is really the eighth Brexit event:
    1. When the Roman legions left. For 400 years Britain had been a province of the Roman Empire. In fact a lot of the rhetoric shows that the underlying desire of the Eurocrats today is to recreate the “glory that was Rome”.
    2. When Magna Carta was drawn up, the Pope in Rome, Innocent III, was furious, for it put a spoke in the wheels of his plans for governance, as he was setting up the machinery of the Holy Inquisition at that time. The Inquisition ravaged the nations of the continent for centuries thereafter, and only England escaped its grip, thanks to Magna Carta. In other countries the Law was a tool for the State, (or King), to impose its will on the subject people. In England it began to be also a means to protect the individual against the otherwise overweening power of the State.
    3. When Henry VIII enacted the schism from Rome, and it was established that “No foreign prince, potentate, prelate, etc has or ought to have any jurisdiction in this land….”
    4. When Elisabeth I successfully resisted the attempt by the King of Spain and the Pope to re-establish European control over Britain, with the Spanish Armada.
    5. When the Parliamentarians defeated King Charles I in the civil war and started a process culminating in the Declaration and Bill of Rights forty years later, establishing a form of governance where the people held inalienable rights. This was practically unique in Europe, where absolutist forms of government held sway. Indeed the King of France was saying, “I am the State”, while we were setting up a constitutional monarchy, where the power of the King was limited and counterbalanced by Parliament and People. A system that has continued, with peaceful adjustments and reforms, to the present day.
    6. When we successfully resisted the attempt by Napoleon to re-establish control over our islands, defeating him on sea at Trafalgar, and on land at Waterloo.
    7. When we successfully resisted the attempt by Hitler to re-establish control over our islands, standing alone against his dominance of all Europe, from the fall of France in June 1940 to the entry of the USSR into the war in June 1941.
    8. Last year, when we voted to leave the project to build a single European State, where the former nation-states would have been mere provinces, governed from Brussels.

    Sometimes I feel it is good to take a step back from the immediacy of current events, and view them in the perspective of the long sweep of history.

    • Thank you for pointing out that typo (now corrected). It would of course have been more, well, interesting if I’d erroneously typed 1793, the year in which France guillotined King Louis XVII, and then declared war on Great Britain. Sometimes it seems that a hot or cold war going on between France and the UK is simply in the nature of things, that it’s always been thus – only, the traitors in Whitehall are selling us out.

  2. Hanging’s far too good for ’em.

  3. Barnier amused me when he accused Britain of running away from the fight against the Muslim extremists. You know the ones, the very people the EU allowed into Europe unhindered

  4. Long ago, while in South Africa, I came to a realisation that made the confusing and complicated business of politics easier to grasp.

    Suppose one decided one day that since work is difficult one would embark on a life of crime and get rich the quick and easy way? OK, so how about robbing banks? Well one would soon realise that, more often than not, bank-robbers get shot or caught and if the latter, then get court and gaol.

    However, if one were to steal an entire country, one would have all the banks. Voilà!

    So, I suggest that if we look at our current lot in Westminster through the eyes of a policeman it would help us see through the fog of political war, the propaganda, the deception and lies and see through the political camouflage of labels like left, right, conservative, socialism, populism etc. and see the criminals. Of course, not all of them in Westminster are criminals. (Perhaps only most of them!)

    It certainly helps to explain how it is that someone who made it into a grammar school is apparently too stupid to realise that in our current situation no deal will be way, way better than any deal the Brussels gang cooks up.

  5. We are used to noble arguments to remain tied to the EU. Former US presidents and Hillary Clinton insisted the UK remain in to help keep Europe stable and moderate the EU’s wilder ambitions. We were implored by Dave Cameron-Nick Clegg-Tony Blair to remain and shape the EU by being an active member.
    M Barnier’s speech reminds me of those cloying appeals and typically it seems Mrs May @ Co will entangle UK resources in the EU’s military ambitions.
    The UK has already done enough, paid a heavy price and should reject M Barnier’s demands.

  6. “According to studies by the UK Ministry of Defence, by 2045 the major world powers will have doubled their defence budget.”

    By 2045 we will be well past the point of no return towards the UK becoming an Islamic state.

    I have spent quite a few years working in the defence sector. However I have come to realise that we must now make a choice:
    – Either oppose Islam completely. Which would include shutting down mosques and repatriation of Muslims to Islamic countries.
    – Or else completely dismantle our military capabilities. Which would include returning nuclear missiles to the USA, and removing stockpiles of nuclear materials to safe countries, such as Japan, or even (surprisingly) to China. It would be immoral to allow these materials to fall into the hands of jihadis.

  7. Anything that we can do to hasten the demise of the EU should be a priority. Whilst it exists it is a threat to democracy and peace. Refusing to pay them anything is a good and necessary start.

    Either May is too blind to see their true colours or she is supporting them against the British people.

    • May is the best example of how the Whitehall Mandarins domesticate their ministers. Others are Boris Johnson and Phillip Hammond.
      They do what their Sir Humphries tell them to, and nothing else. And if it’s not become obvious by now that it’s Whitehall driving the remain campaign, overtly and covertly, then I really despair. Our politicians, from May downwards, are mostly puppets. It’s a waste of time to attack them exclusively – we really must turn our eyes to Whitehall and start asking them the inconvenient questions.

  8. Good article but all unfortunately as we’d expect. I need no further convincing and haven’t for many, many years.

    I hate these revolting evil individuals, that the EU is a thoroughly evil entity I have no doubt.

    Look at this picture of them all, they all look like something out of the Rocky Horror Show or the Adams Family.
