Ve have ein plan


And it doesn’t do any favours for EU member nations’ sovereignty and therefore the (eroding) democratic rights of its citizens.

FRENCH President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angela Merkel have set out their plan to press ahead with changes to the European Union treaty, a day before EU leaders convene at a crucial Brussels summit to shore up the eurozone.

Mr Sarkozy and Ms Merkel, who made their proposals in a letter to European Council President Herman Van Rompuy, issued an ultimatum to the 27 EU governments, saying they must decide whether they will accept greater central control over their national budgets.

Ho hum. It might work well from a fiscal point of view – i.e. stop them exploding – but that’s about it IMO.

UPDATE

Was thinking on the drive home whether a bit of a loss of sovereignty would really be such a bad thing for the member nations of the EU.

But with Europe as we know it being wrecked faster than you can say “too much fundamentalist Muslim immigration” I realised that isn’t even the main point.

The main point is that as a democratic citizen, one carries a sacred responsibility and Europe’s citizens have been grossly irresponsible by continually electing leaders who furthered an unsustainable welfare state which has led to the mess Europe’s now in.

The result was inevitable – a loss of sovereignty and therefore a loss of each citizen’s democratic voice.

If things aren’t going the way the EU citizenry like, there’s less they can do about nowadays.

Let Europe’s loss be a lesson to us all that we cannot continue to vote for ourselves “free” goodies and expect to maintain our individual and collective freedom and choice.

UPDATE II

Britain was mad to have anything to do with the EU in the first place.
