EU And Government Are A Threat To UK Democracy

Updated on December 7, 2012

Euro State

It now seems it is no secret that the solution to the euro-zone crisis is a European superstate, and if Angela Merkel has her way Germany will be at the head of a federal Europe.

The plan for a superstate was established after World War Two to suppress Germany's ambitions, and it has taken a long time to bring the plan to fruition.How Ironic now that Germany is leading the way to a new fiscal pact via Brussels and Berlin to dominate the struggling and near bankrupt Mediterranean countries.

This situation is of no benefit to the UK and a democratic decision would be tha answer and successive governments have continued to talk about a referendum, but have not offered people the vote.

Threat To Democracy

For a Nation that brought the rule of democracy to many other countries around the world we can no longer consider ourselves to be a democratic country due to the intrusion and meddling of a self centered European Union.

Most of the ludicrous stifling laws and regulations that are dreamt up in Brussels only serve to have a counter affect upon the people who reside in Britain.These are rules that are forced on us and the British public are powerless to reject or amend these controlling and desperate actions of the corrupt EU.

There is no democracy for the British people while we remain in the grip of this power mad regime.

Doomed To Failure.

The only saving grace for Britain is that it did not join the Eurozone, someone had the sense to see this was a project doomed to fail.

The single currency was never going to work with the seperate national individual governments. The democratic countries will all have different ideas on how to deal with its own economic crisis, and Brussels has already installed unelected leaders into the near bankrupt member Nations.

Britain is already being held back by the ridiculous bureaucracy and over bearing payments to the EU, but those in power knew not to take on the Euro.So why should we put up with the rest of the EU policies that are strangling our Nation.

Let The People Decide

Only the people that are in power and want even more power have faith in a federal Europe. It was the original concept, and their belief that it is the only way the EU can survive.

People all over the world are proud of their country.USSR and The Balkan States were dismantled because they wanted their own nationality and independence.

Can you really believe a united States of Europe is workable?

To regain our democracy is simple, let the people decide. A simple vote, in or out. We need a referendum and it seems the majority of people want out of the EU.

The main stumbling block is the government. We cannot trust David Cameron, or indeed any other politicians who only want to talk about a referendum.Promises have been made in the past, but now it seems we also have politicians who are a threat to UK democracy.

      Thanks for your comments Liberum and Ericdierker.

      CHRIS57, I have to agree with your comments that there is virtually no manufacturing in the UK and the economy is built around the financial square mile and its casino banking.

      However I think Britain could stand alone with the right leadership. The people of Britain have lost faith in its political leaders who allow unelected officials in the middle of Europe to tell us how to run our lives.

      Corrupt politicians are dithering over a referendum as they know the people of UK want out. They conned us with a referendum 40 years ago without the electorate knowing the real reason was a federal superstate.There should be no more reasons to sign away any more of our sovereignty because of selfish politicians.

      Democracy doesn't exists anymore, just a name left, so don't worry. :)

      What will be the future of the UK outside of the EU? Of course the UK gambles with its own currency, same as big cousin US is doing. But the UK can not stand up to resource rich US to play the role of lone wolf in today´s world. The UK has lost too much producing industry to participate in the economic progress of the world. The UK is big in banking like Switzerland, but where are British products to compare with elite Swiss watches, knives, precision machinery?

      I have the impression Britain would be much better off in staying in cozy European Union. With more than 3 Billion something Euros per year of payment misbalance to the EU i don´t understand, why Britain is not taking bigger action in forming a modern EU. If the UK pays for it, why not take an active, constructive role?
