The People’s Movement campaigns against any measures that further develop the EU into a federal super-state and works to defend and enhance popular sovereignty, democracy and social justice in Ireland.
Billions for the EU’s wars
With billions in arms programmes at the EU and national levels, the European Union is seeking to become an operating global military power. At its last summit it agreed not only to enhance co-operation among the member states’ armed forces to facilitate their combat deployment—for example in Africa—but also to rapidly establish a “defence fund” to reallocate funds from civilian to military use.
In a few years, Brussels will already be allocating €1½ billion annually for both research and development of new military technology.
Be ruled by laws handed down to us by people we never voted for
Keep the EU’s hands in our pockets for a very long time
The EU’s modus operandi when dealing with democracy is to ignore it wherever possible if it conflicts with the aims and objectives of achieving an EU superstate. Now it seems Hammond and May, and I see it in that order, have decided that the EU way of doing things, which will ultimately lead the UK back into the arms of the EU superstate, is the way to go. Delay, fudge and delay again until we hold a second referendum be it in the guise of a snap general election.
This is not what we voted for. This would be a betrayal.
Ed – The Juncker Bunker is a euphemism for the EU Commission and all its works. Since we voted to depart the EU nut-house there has been an increasing flow of erratic delusional decrees, directives and orders emerging from the bunker as reality gradually asserts itself over ideologically driven wishful thinking. Use of the term also denotes a siege mentality taking hold in the court of Emporer Juncker.
Express Headline: Fury as Juncker and EU commissioners splash £450k of TAXPAYERS’ cash on travel in 2 months
JEAN Claude Juncker and his fellow European Commissioners went on an “outrageous” half million euro (£450,000) spending splurge on junkets in just two months new figures have revealed.
Stories of gratuitous waste of public funds in the EU are many, but as we found out during the referendum campaign they are hardly mentioned and generaly swept under the carpet by a pliant EUrophile mainstream media. That has changed, now an accounting has to be made as part of Britain’s departure.
It is interesting to watch the EU’s leading negotiators having to come to terms with skeleton after skeleton emerging from the rotten core of unaudited expenditure carried out in the EU since Britain joined. Other states are watching aghast.
The British departure from the EU has caused a chain reaction of critical thinking and review by the European nation states of which the EU is comprised.
They are asking if the EU institutions: Commission, so-called Parliament, EU Council and the ECB are governing their countries the way they thought they would when their respective previous governments signed them up.
They are asking a lot of questions now which should have been asked at the time they joined.
“…we now have developing in the state [of Ireland] what is in essence a layer of career militarists, linked to their European peers, who see themselves as being already part of a European army. – The People’s News
With Article 50 triggered and Brexit negotiations well underway, the UK government looks like it’s carrying out the instructions it received from 17.4 million voters last summer. At best, Britain and the continent will establish a mutually advantageous trade relationship; at worst, the UK and EU will revert to World Trade Organization (WTO) rules, including minor tariffs on the exchange of goods and services. In either case, it seems, the UK will regain control over its finances, its borders, and its laws –all of which are necessary to fulfill the mandate given by voters.
Nevertheless, a growing threat hangs over Brexit Britain.
In hopes of consolidating power, Prime Minister Theresa May called an election in June. Rather than expand her mandate with a comfortable majority in Parliament, May’s Conservatives lost their majority, necessitating the support of Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist MPs to govern.
