Barroso supports UK exit from EU

The unelected official acting as head of the EU, Manual Barolo, has made the clearest statement yet in support of the UK's exit from the EU. As the Telegraph reports extensively, Senor Barolo has called on Cameron to honour Churchill's vision of a United States of Europe.

Churchill's support for a union of European nations is established historical fact. As is his complete opposition to the UK being a member. He saw a merging in particular of France, Germany and Italy into one fractious, squabbling federation, with the UK standing on the outside as an equally powerful player as this Babelesque Empire. He thought it the best long-term solution to another bloody conflict in Europe - all of which in the past have been caused by either the Fritzes, the Kermits or the Luigis. 

In resurrecting Churchill's vision, Barolo has provided the strongest support yet from Brussels' unelected officials for the UK's new relationship with the continent.    

NB Just after having written this and looking at my blog roll I notice North has already blogged exactly the same thing. I'm going to let my piece stand as I penned it quite independently. It's just a shame there's not a hack left on the Telegraph able to undrstand the irony.

Barroso might support UK exit from the EU - as far as the Kommissars are concerned, we are standing in the way of their ultimate objective. But unfortunately, Merkel doesn't and neither does Cameron.

THAT's the problem.

Cameron is following in the Macmillan/Heath tradition .... not the Churchill/Thatcher one.

We need to destroy the Cameron/Macmillan tendency and the only way to do that is to vote UKIP. If that means a term of Miliband/Labour then so be it.

So, the late 40's with Germany, France and Italy all in a mess with the collapse of their empires. Was Churchill actually thinking of a New Raj in Europe with Britain at the helm? My memory of the British Zone in Germany is that it was run very much like one of the colonies.

Ciao Radders, not sure the luigis have started too many major European wars... the frogs and the krauts of course, absolutely.

"We are with Europe but not of it. We are linked, but not compromised. We are interested and associated, but not absorbed. And should any European statesman address us and say “Shall we speak for thee?” we should reply, “Nay, Sir, for we live among our own people”."

Those are the great man's words at the time.

Would that we had anyone in authority today with even a fraction of his stature and wisdom!

EU Commission President, José Barroso, has called for a revival of Winston Churchill’s vision for a kind of ‘United States of Europe’. Nonsense, responded the eurosceptics. Churchill was ‘one of us’ and he would’ve voted UKIP!

Who’s right? See my latest EU-ROPE.COM blog: ‘Winston Churchill – a founder of the European Union.’
