The 1000 Day Brexit Cock-up (Conspiracy)

Daniel Hannan MEP

writes “Politicians will sacrifice anything to meet Brussels’ requirements. The EU is not only undemocratic in itself; it also degrades the internal democracy of its constituent nations.

“Everyone knows that the EU is run by unelected officials. What is far less widely appreciated is the way that, in order to sustain a fundamentally oligarchic project, the member states are obliged repeatedly to distort their domestic constitutional arrangements.

“The EU’s Hideous Strength manifests itself in the readiness of politicians and institutions at the national level to act against their interests for the sake of deeper integration. To put it another way, as well as being undemocratic in itself, in the sense of being run by unelected officials, the EU frequently requires its member states to give up a measure of their domestic democracy in order to sustain the requirements of closer union.

“The politicisation of the HoC Speaker’s chair after 300 years is just the latest example of what I call the EU’s Hideous Strength.

“This is what the Speaker said a few weeks ago

when he allowed a Remainer amendment. “I am not in the business of invoking precedent” He was cheered by the same people cheering him now after he DID invoke precedent. Marvel at the EU’s “Hideous Strength”. It doesn’t just subvert national institutions, it undoes its supporters’ capacity for fairness or logic”.
