Great Britain Insulted — Conservative Government Cowers
By AJM. at http://bnpideas.com/
In what must rank as one of the most deliberately belligerent attacks on Britain in the EU Parliament, Guy Verhofstadt, leader of the Parliament’s Liberal Group, has revealed his and his fellow MEPs’ contempt for the UK.
In the video clip which can be seen beneath, Verhofstadt was referring to the new Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF), which has demanded a significant increase in the EU’s annual budget, at a time of unprecedented austerity at home.
Viewers will note Verhofstadt’s contempt and derision for the nation that created his own state (at the Treaty of London, 1831). Great Britain protected his state twice in the two great conflicts of the 20th Century, from which it was liberated in the closing stages of WW2.
Viewers will also note the applause and support Verhofstadt receives from h is fellow Europhiles. Verhofstadt was the Prime Minister of Belgium between 1999-2008.
In 2011, the UK will make gross contributions of some £16 billion to the EU budget. Between the years 2000-2006 and 2007-2013, the UK’s net contribution will rise by nearly 100 percent.
Since 1973, the UK’s gross contributions to the EU have exceeded £260 billion at nominal values (i.e. without index linking).
In 1973, the Conservative Government signed the Treaty of Rome, after a series of manoeuvres before the British electorate which employed unprecedented subterfuge and deceit. The Public Records Office details the relevant Cabinet records of the time and the extent of the deception.
The Conservative Party supported the UK’s membership of what was described, at the time, as merely a free trading zone during the 1975 Referendum. The Conservatives were ably assisted by the funds of international business interests.
The British electorate, many of whom did not vote in 1975, have never been consulted on the matter of a political and economic European Union and the destruction of our ancient liberties and Constitution.
Under that Constitution, it is forbidden for any overseas power, prelate or jurisdiction or potentate to interfere in the affairs of Great Britain.
On 15 September 2010 Verhofstadt supported the new initiative Spinelli Group, which was founded to reinvigorate the strive for federalisation of the European Union (EU). Other prominent supporters are: Jacques Delors, Daniel Cohn-Bendit, Joschka Fischer, Andrew Duff, Elmar Brok. Verhofstadt is also an enthusiastic multiculturalist.
Verhofstadt, along with his numerous allies in the Parliament, Council and Commission, should appreciate that without the UK’s budget contribution, the EU would fail to function. This is a point our Ministers will not make.
Were the UK to withdraw from the EU – as one day it shall — the EU will only continue to operate by raising the contributions of the remaining member states.
At that point, the EU will rupture and dissolve; Great Britain will once again take the lead and will save the nations of Europe by its example, to employ the words of the late William Pitt.

We may be quite certain that the spineless sycophants within the Vichy Conservative-Lib/Dem Alliance will, yet again, fail to stand up for Britain’s interests. The hand-wringers in both parties will meekly fawn before their EU governors. British subjects will, once again, be humiliated and belittled.
Meanwhile, Government Ministers will congratulate themselves on their recent increase to the Overseas Aid budget, shortly set to exceed £11 billion per annum and overseen by the EU, whilst old age pensioners die of hypothermia in winter.
So much for the empty tub-thumping approach of prospective Conservative Ministers in the run-up to last year’s General Election. The late Lord Palmerston stands out as an almighty colossus in comparison with his current counterparts.
