A New EU Government Takes Over Our Lives Today

To misquote J.R.R. Tolkien

as Brexit Facts4EU does delightfully

“The Lady of the Rings”

“Three Rings for the Executive Vice-Presidents under the sky,
Five Rings for the Vice-Presidents in their halls of stone,
Eighteen for Mortal Commissioners doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lady on her dark throne
In the Land of Mordeur where the Shadows lie.
“One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them,
In the Land of Mordeur where the Shadows lie.”

“The new EU Commission consists of 1 President, 3 Executive Vice-Presidents, 5 Vice-Presidents, 18 Commissioners. You didn’t vote any of them in, and you can’t vote any of them out. They were appointed. On Wednesday 27 November the MEPs from the EU Parliament rubber-stamped these appointments. None were elected in a competitive, democratic ballot, and this includes the role of President of the Commission.

“A general election is taking place in the United Kingdom. On 12 December the British people will vote. A government will then be formed, and cabinet ministers will be selected by the leader of the largest party. All of these cabinet ministers will normally have been elected by voters in his or her constituency.

“The UK system might not be perfect, but it does at least involve making a choice. And, as far as we are aware, none of the cabinet ministers in the UK will have been a former Miss World contestant, unlike the new EU Commissioner for Equality Maltese Helena Dalli

    What makes me howl with laughter is when the Greens & the Lib Dems constantly grumble about the legitimacy of our first past the post electoral system – while at the same time seem perfectly at ease to be ruled by a whole cabal of unelected self aggrandising nomarks in Brussels.
