If you still believe in remain, here is your brave new EU world
The EU President no-one voted for droned on for 1hr 20 mins in a “State of the Union” speech. Disturbing, globalist EU witterings from the President of a wannabe superstate.
The other day in Brussels the unelected President of the EU Commission addressed the EU Parliament. This address is a relatively new EU delusion of grandeur based on the tradition of the US President’s annual State of the Union speech to the US Congress, as if the EU were a country. Out of a very long speech we have picked out a section which caught our attention.
No minimum wages in EU law (but they exist in UK law). Remainers’ still talk of Brexit as meaning the abandonment of supposed EU protections on matters such as workers’ rights. We have published many research reports showing that it’s UK law that protects workers’ rights, and that the EU has done almost nothing.
Frau von der Leyen was forced to admit that the EU has no protections in place. “This is real European solidarity in action. And it reflects the fact that in our Union the dignity of work must be sacred. But the truth is that for too many people, work no longer pays. Dumping wages destroys the dignity of work, penalises the entrepreneur who pays decent wages and distorts fair competition in the Single Market.
“This is why the Commission will put forward a legal proposal to support Member States to set up a framework for minimum wages. Everyone must have access to minimum wages either through collective agreements or through statutory minimum wages.”
Conclusive proof from the EU President of what we have stated many times before: the EU does not even have a minimum wage law.
This is the Single Market which the EU started on 01 Jan 1993, over 25 years ago. It’s like the employment dark ages, and this wittering idiot bored people almost to death. Thanks be that we left it!
