Waaah Waaahh Waaah ... It's not fair

´Jose Manual Barroso; the European Commission President is out of sorts.
Faced with a plunging popularity of the EU institutions, European Commission chief Jose Manuel Barroso has blamed national capitals for not defending the European project during the economic crisis.

The devastating results of a Eurobarometer published last week showing that support for EU institutions is waning across the continent are due to the economic crisis, argued Mr Barroso in an interview with the Italian daily Corriere della Sera.

No you post-Maoist overpromoted bureacrat, The European Union is unpopular because it is unresponsive, bureacratic, undemocratic and irrelevant to people's lives.

When the crisis came it faffed.

It's response to everything is to aggregate more power to itself, claiming preposterously that the people - whoever they are - want more Europe. Fiddlesticks.

Let's get this straight. The national governments are responsible to no-one but their own electorates. They have no reason, nor do they have a duty (except in the minds of the Eurocrats) to the EU and its good name.

They are hired and fired by their own people. They have to respond to the hopes and fears of their own peopkle.

You know what the short hand for all that stuff is don't you, Mr Barroso?

It's called democtracy, and if you don't like it that's a pity, because you are going to get more of it, much much more.

You mis-spelled "bureaucrat".

This can only be good for UKs chances of independence.

However it is disappointing that public opinion is so influenced by the vagueness of the EU's financial position.

I am confident that the UK will be better off in all respects (including financially) separate from the EU superstate, however even if the UK were a net recipient of funds from the other EU members I would not support our membership of it.

Individuals and groups can discuss ideas and run campaigns, but the EU holds the purse strings, and if they can successfully bribe people to support them we are powerless to compete.

Most important is the part of the survey that shows that British Subjects have the least trust in the EU, with 68% against, only 20% in favour, and 12% indifferent.

Meanwhile, Wee Willy Hague was in Bulgaria yesterday, chatting with them've guessed it....Turkey.

Let's not depend on the EU Viceroy and former Tory in Downing Street to respond though.
