Outrage over EU president's attack on European Identity.


The nasty comments by EU president Van Rompuy has spurred outrage, not just from the far-right, but from the larger moderate/center-right parties as well.

There can be no mistake, Van Rompuy and his ilk want power at all costs. They seem more than willing to destroy the future of Europe with mass 3rd world immigration just to gain that power. The EU left is no different that the American left. They seek 3rd world immigrants as a means of importing left-wing voters. Those who oppose the planned destruction of their country are labeled “racists.”

The President of the European Council has ­finally revealed his true colours. ‘The time of the homogeneous nation state is over,’ declared Herman Van Rompuy in Berlin yesterday.

According to Mr Van Rompuy, the idea that a country can survive alone is not merely an illusion: ‘It is a lie!’

He has clearly never heard of the ­Battle of Britain.

My first reaction to this latest ­diktat was to laugh out loud. This ­blustering Belgian, the grandest ­panjandrum in Brussels, is straight out of Gilbert and Sullivan.

‘President’ Van Rompuy and his British colleague, the EU ‘High Representative’ Baroness Ashton, cut richly comic figures on the international stage.

It is tempting to dismiss their empire-building as an extravagant but otherwise harmless pastime. The trouble is that these Eurocrats not only waste tens of billions of pounds on their palatial offices and legions of flunkeys — they have real power, too.

The British public watched in dismay as, earlier this month, David Cameron was forced to back down from his promise to stop Brussels from increasing its already bloated budget.

The Prime Minister tried to present the deal he secured — reducing the 6 per cent increase Brussels demanded to 2.9 per cent.

But at a time when Britain is slashing its national budget by at least 25 per cent, even a 2.9 per cent increase in the profligate EU budget is indefensible.

Worse, Mr Cameron agreed to further treaty changes to ­placate the German Chancellor Angela Merkel, without securing any firm promise that there will be no new EU power grab.

Mr Van Rompuy’s Berlin speech appears to be the first shot in a new campaign to speed the transfer of sovereignty to Brussels — a transfer that was briefly interrupted by the defeat of the European Constitution and the Lisbon Treaty in ­successive referendums.

Not since the days of Jacques Delors, the French Commission President in the Eighties, have the Euro-federalists been so bold in setting out their agenda.

Although they failed then to extinguish the sovereignty of Britain and other nation states, it was a pyrrhic victory for the Eurosceptics, not least because they lost their ­greatest ­champion in Margaret Thatcher soon afterwards. Twenty years ago this month, Mrs Thatcher was deposed as Prime Minister by the Conservative Party after expressing her opposition to the single currency and a federal Europe in her inimitably direct way: ‘No! No! No!’

In the two decades since Mrs Thatcher went down fighting, the piecemeal transfer of power to Europe has ­continued unabated.

The latest reminder of just how far that process has gone was the Government’s abject humiliation over the decision by the European Court of Human Rights that prisoners should be given the vote. Mr Cameron was said to be ‘exasperated’ and ‘furious’ at having to agree to votes for prisoners, but his hand was forced.

The economic crisis since 2008 has witnessed an attempt by Europe to get its hands on the City — the engine room of the British economy.

‘I want the world to see the victory of the European model,’ President Nicolas Sarkozy of France gloated last December, after the appointment of a Frenchman as the EU commissioner responsible for the City of London: ‘The English are the big losers in this business.’

Sure enough, since then, the EU has created three new authorities to regulate ­banking, pensions, equity and insurance.
