Janice Atkinson, MEP: The EU Is Killing Itself from the Inside. As All Dictatorships Do
Guest post by Janince Atkinson, MEP
Janice is an independent member of the European Parliament for the South East England region.
As prime minister Mrs. May does a whistle stop tour of EU capitals to try and garner support for her version of Brexit, she is ignoring the people who are and will be ruling the EU over the coming months and years.
She is meeting the leaders of the Czech Republic and Austria this week. Czech’s Andrej Babis, whose party sits with arch- enemy, Guy Verhofstadt in the European Parliament, is no friend to the UK or to Brexit. They are a federalist liberal group.
In Austria, we have a little more hope, but she is not meeting ENF partners, the FPO, who are in coalition with Sebastian Kurz, with whom she is meeting.
The Brexit Remainers at home in the UK have stepped up their ‘Project Fear’ of leaving the EU. They warn we should be stockpiling food and medicines could run out if we leave or don’t get a (bad) deal from the EU. Of course, non-EU Switzerland must have terrible problems with food and medicines. If so, I didn’t see this a couple of weeks ago when I was in their direct democracy, low tax thriving country.
Meanwhile, the rest of the world moves on. Jean-Claude Juncker got assurances of a trade deal within two hours of meeting President Trump. Mrs. May has had two years dealing with Brussels and still no deal.
Of course, it’s political, you can check out of the EU but you can never leave.
The EU fears that ‘Global Britain’ will do just fine on its’ own. Trading in services, financial products, food and technology, they fear a low tax, high energized economy will emerge and other states will want to leave.
Well, other states want to leave too, or at least have their own exit referenda. Mrs. May should be actively encouraging this. She should be speaking to the opposition parties across the EU, those that will be stronger, with more MEPs, MPs and in government in the coming year. Those that support the UK and want a free trade deal, closer ties, closed borders, a Europe of Nations and Freedom should be friends and allies.
Our Commonwealth partners of New Zealand and Australia want us to join the Trans Pacific Partnership, which we cannot do if we remain shackled to the EU, which is Mrs. May’s plan.
On his very welcome visit to the UK recently, President Trump warned Mrs. May that her plan risked a no deal with the US.
Mrs. May is no true conservative, she cannot see the wasted opportunities if she doesn’t seal deals for our great country and the goal of trade liberalism.
The EU is tearing itself apart on uncontrolled immigration; one of the reasons people voted for Brexit was to control our borders and who comes here.
This week saw Spain’s EU puppet socialist government see an invasion into its territories of Ceuta and Mellila in Morocco. Hundreds of migrants armed with lime (caustic and dangerous), knives and faeces, stormed Spain’s Guardia Civil. Although armed with guns, the Guardia Civil are not allowed to fire their arms whilst under attack. It is no coincidence that when the conservative coalition fell, due in part to corruption, instead of having a general election, an EU socialist puppet was put in place. It is no coincidence that as Italy closed its borders to migrants, the Spanish opened theirs.
The EU is killing itself from inside, as all dictatorships do.
It won’t be Brexit that brings it down, it will be an invasion and a migrant crime wave, as detailed in my book, The Migrant Crime Wave.
