Mary Ellen Synon posted, following the EU Finance Ministers meeting a few days ago, about how national parliaments and their peoples are being 'managed' by what she terms the euro-elite and how opposition parties are blackmailed into agreeing to bail-outs. She ended:
"So the opposition parties are threatened or frighten into agreeing to back the Brussels deal: we will not oppose, we will cooperate, we will collaborate, we will stay silent, we will submit. And then the people of these nations will be left with no leaders other than the governments put in place by the euro-elite, will be told by both sides of their parliament to believe that there is only the one way, only the one programme, all to support the one country called Europe...and you may recognise what is happening now across the eurozone: 'The whole climate of thought will be different. In fact, there will be no thought, as we understand it now. Orthodoxy means not thinking -- not needing to think. Orthodoxy is unconciousness.'"
According to the Guardian the EU 8 comprise: Lagarde; Merkel; Sarkozy; Mario Draghi, the new president of the ECB; José Manuel Barroso, the president of the European Commission; Jean-Claude Juncker, chairman of the Eurogroup; Herman van Rompuy, the president of the European Council; and Olli Rehn, Europe's economic and monetary affairs commissioner.
The pretence that governments had any power has been removed and placed in the hands of these 8 people and it means that the democratic clock has been turned back to when tyrannical rule was the norm. History shows us that when governments are but puppets of another regime and the peoples of those governments ignored, eventually the people rebel exacting retribution not only on their foreign masters but also on their own politicians who were bought.
One can but wonder how long it will be before history, as it always does, repeats itself?
