Britain's sinister allies

Harry Phibbs in this morning's Guardian repeats much of Tory Bear's exposé of the sinister friends of Labour in Europe.

Few mainland European parties can escape being tainted by scrutiny. In France the Gaullists were behind atrocities in Algeria, and the pre-war French parties in bed with Darnand and his hated Milice in Jewish deportations, if not outright collaborators with the Nazis. In Spain the parties of the left have the blood of 7,000 vilely murdered and violated Catholic priests and nuns on their hands, and those of the right several hundred thousand victims of Franco's terror. Ten thousand died in Greece's post-war civil war, victims of parties of both left and right that now sit in Brussels. Perhaps only the parties of the UK and paradoxically Germany are free from direct association with the atrocities of the 20th century.

One could sum up all of the European parties that sit in Brussels as 'mostly dodgy'. The question is not whether they're on the left or right, but do we really want to be associated with any of them at all?

"do we really want to be associated with any of them at all?"

I think we are pretty much agreed that we do not. Unfortunately, nobody is asking us.

Unfortunately, the question of whether we really want to be associated with any of them is not on the government's Tory-bashing agenda.

Labour seems to be making a big thing about the European parliament grouping which includes the Tories because of the alleged background of one Polish member.
It is worth looking at these posts by Tory Bear to see who Labour is in bed with!

It is xenophobic and racist for you to allow objective reality to get in the way of the European Project.

Ah but Raedwald you forget, socialists and communists have form when it comes to genocide and the expedient demise of any opposition. Stalin, Mao, Fidel all sound characters in any socialist's book.

Mitterand, that EU hero, worked for Vichy France.
