What Berlaymont really wants

Viviane Reding, an unelected official of the EU organisation, has made quite clear what the commission's objectives are in a speech yesterday;
"We need a true political union. To me this means that we need to build a United States of Europe with the Commission as government and two chambers – the European Parliament and a "Senate" of Member States."
 And the tactic for May's election is also clear;
"This will be our best weapon against the Eurosceptics: to explain to our citizens that their vote really matters. That the big decisions on policies in the European Union are made by the parties of the centre. And that therefore it would be a waste of their vote to use it as a protest vote, by choosing Eurosceptics on the right or on the left."

The 'choices' that voters are given do not, of course, include any option for less Federal government from Brussels. You vote either for more power for the commission, or for greater powers for the commission.  

And of course Reding and her dark hordes have billions of Euros to spend between now and May on bribery, vote-buying, brainwashing, saturation advertising and covert marketing. We only have the bare and naked truth of our words and the righteous commitment of our hearts to combat the evil. Let battle begin.

The interesting thing, though, is that with all their money and propaganda, people are rebelling against the imposition of the EU/USE across western Europe.

The people don't want their Nations destroyed on the altar of European Union - particularly if they're going to pay for it as well as the Kommissars failures.

Right now, what I am thinking is that I wouldn't vote UKIP in a general election because they probably can't govern. At the same time, I see the EU as both an irrelevance and a nuisance in my life. So what would be the harm in voting UKIP in the European elections? No harm at all. I don't know nor care who my MEP is and all I want to do is inflict maximum damage on Berlaymont. So UKIP it will be for the May elections. Funnily enough, I don't think I am alone...

@Anon, Coney Island: Vote UKIP get Labour eh? Your posted reason "UKIP probably can't govern" is surely a joke... Most UKIP executive material have had careers in the real world...

UKIP might not be good at governing in the manner that the LibLabCON does, but I a not sure that we are really being "helped" with their sort of government.

Surely tactical voting, which delivered the CONdemNation is past its sell by now?

"Reding and her dark hordes have billions of Euros to spend"

Well that's always the case when you have fractional reserve banking and control of the printing press (ok actually the computer you punch those extra 000's into.)

right_writes - liblabcon are not the answer but I fear neither are ukip, as there are multiple questions.

The answer is to disrupt the EU as much as possible, the up and coming EU election is a chance to put in any anti EU member possible with the chance that a majority of antis will be able to disrupt and bring the EU down.Anti EU sentiment is growing in Europe leave Hannan and a couple of other anti EU MEPs in place and vote UKIP in the rest. With the EU then fighting for its survival we can go after the home troughing fools. Then start promoting your Harrowgate Agenda amidst political turmoil and some body or group might come to the fore.

I think Raedwald might have been caught between hoards and whores - perfectly understandable.

The thought of Reding's crowd having free reign in the coming months makes it imperative that blogs such as yours keep going.

I've noticed that local papers are seeing an increase in letters from the dark side - it's important to shed some light on them in the comments sections.

There's not a lot of wriggle room for the EU to play that one down.

Cat, bag, out of ... comes to mind.
Ms Reding's pronouncements will cause rage & dismay everywhere.
Rage by those who love Europe, but distrust (to say the least) the EU
And dismay among her friends & autocratic supporters, because the game has been given away, in public.
