An alternative to Britain leaving the EU
When I personally started campaigning against the obvious evil intent of what became the EU, towards the end of the last century, I argued (indeed my novel predicting its demise in 2014, so presumed) that Britain could again fill its historical role in helping restore democracy and decency in the aftermath of tyranny on its continental mainland.
Viewing the situation in 2012 things do not appear so simple. How are we to ensure the restoration of democracy in a parliamentary system and constitutional monarchy comprehensively trashed by the double dealing duplicity and downright dishonesty of recent decades? That alone seems a task of such scope and complexity that worrying what might play out in the politics of the other 26 desecrated ex-sovereigns clearly appears a task too far.
Yet we won through in 1940 when the odds must indeed have appeared as daunting! Therefore I will offer one suggestion, which had its roots in my posting of this time yesterday. An EU wide, nationally run, truth and rconciliation enquiry could be tasked with determining the double-dealings behind the EU's establishment and bringing to justice the guilty parties who so sought to benefit.
Decades ago I suggested the EU could be run on a system of Swiss direct democracy tied to internet voting. That of course sunk without trace, it being the direct opposite of what the elites had in mind, the results of which are so gruesomely obvious today. Perhaps such a system could be investigated concurrent with the bringing to justice of those responsible for the present mess.
Any who believe such moves are likely, or even remotely possible, I fear are living in a dream world. Britain must at first therefore go it alone. As we bring our own EU plotters and traitors to trial, other countries may follow our example and eventually restore democratic governance in what were once their own sovereign states or the fragmented remnants which by then may well have appeared. That may be the time when we can try again for a European trading community, in the interim let's make a start at trying to restore relations with the Commonwealh whom we have recently treated so shabbily!
In every case for each former EU nation the first task will be to destroy the fantasy of transnational altruism on which the EU is based! It is a false face designed to disguise the greed and opportunism based upon national socialism which is the underlying reality lurking behind the EU!
