This paper provides an introductory background to the European trading, political and financial union, its history and proposed development, as well as the UK’s involvement. The outline of differences between UK and European legal systems are personally helpful in view of last year’s posts on the 8th Centennial of the Magna Carta.
As well as providing links to earlier posts on the EU Referendum the hub also has some to a few interesting opinions. For example, author Frederick Forsyth speaks of “Government by Deception” and quotes a possibly questionable summation of ‘Father of Europe’ Jean Monnet’s intention as:
“Europe’s nations should be guided towards the super state, without their people understanding what is happening. This can be accomplished by successive steps, each disguised as having an economic purpose, but which will eventually and irreversibly lead to Federation.”
Blogger ‘Archbishop Cranmer’ concludes his piece on former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey’s opinion of Brexit as being “The Refrain of Freedom” with:
“The European Union is an anti-democratic, centralised, unreformable, oligarchic bureaucratic beast bent on total domination. It is prepared to lose souls to save face. The people of God yearn for a better way, another treaty, a different mission of national discovery and self-confidence. We can meet together, network, dialogue, support and befriend our European neighbours as we boldly bear witness as followers of Christ. Or we can be absorbed, monitored, re-educated, relativised, patronised and ignored as the Euro-Beast marches on to ever closer union and democratic damnation. That is the choice we face. Thank God that Lord Carey sounds a clear note against the injustice, humiliation, pain and bitter resentment of remaining in a Godless sodality of gnashing teeth.”
