EUSSR Ministers Desperate to Shut Out Citizens – A Tradition of Lies and Deceit

EUOBSERVER  on 6th July reported on the ‘European Court of Justice’ case covering transparency of proceedings in the Council of Ministers’ working groups. That Council of Ministers does its business behind closed doors, despite the Lisbon Treaty’s clear requirement that they meet in public.

However, attempts to hold the Council to the treaty standard have met with stiff resistance.

As EUOBS says, ‘should it be just that the final vote on a new piece of law takes place in public, or should there be complete transparency for the whole legislative process?’

The apparatchiks are overtly contemptuous of the people who pay their huge salaries. ‘Officials from the member states explain that having to conduct all their business in public would prevent them from having full and frank discussions about political issues.Why? Are they scared of saying what they think of their subject peoples? 

As the EUOB article notes. ‘under a regime of transparency, civil servants can continue to discuss freely their views over coffee. What they won’t be able to do is to change the law as a result.’  If they want to try and change the law, they will have go back to the meeting room where they must put their opinions on the record and to the vote. Those member state representatives who agree with a proposed change will have to make their agreement public, as will those who oppose it.

But of course the EuroCrats, at every level, regard themselves as superior to mere people. Their arrogance in respect of referenda is second to none, a shameful determination to keep power in their own hands.

We had that abominable Luxemburger Juncker, admitting quite blatantly that he resorts to lies when it suits his ruling class’s interests.  10/5/11 EUObserver  The development comes after the Luxembourgish prime minister admitted the week before during a Brussels conference on economic governance that over the course of his career, despite his Catholic upbringing, he often “had to lie” in order not to feed rumours and that economic policy was too important to be discussed in public. “I am for secret, dark debates,” he quipped, according to an EUobserver report.

That confession came forth after the elite had been caught out lying about a key meeting. As the Suddeutsche Zeitung accurately deduced – “Seldom have we seen politicians acting as irresponsibly as they did on Friday evening. In Berlin, Brussels, Paris, Rome and Luxembourg, officials were silent, deceptive or just plain lied.

So what did they expect? The EU is a construct founded on deceit and a rancid loathing of democracy.

“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.”
  Jean Monnet, Founder of the European Movement. Former Cognac salesman and bureaucrat at the League of Nations. 30 April 1952.
       “I have never understood why public opinion about European ideas should be taken into account.”
  Raymond Barre, Mayor of Lyons and French Prime Minister 1976 – 1981 under Giscard d’Estaing.


“We must not give in to mob rule”.
  Michael Heseltine, aka ‘Tarzan’, charismatic europhile darling of the Conservative left, and matricidal mace-wielder. One-time Minister of Defence and Deputy Prime Minister. Explaining his opposition to holding a referendum on Euro entry in a BBC television documentary.
“[The result was] disgraceful … we should never have given the vote to women and truck drivers.”
  Danish official working at the European Commission, on hearing the news that Danes had voted no to membership of the euro in September 2000.
“The Europe of Maastricht could only have been created in the absence of democracy.”
  Claude Cheysson, French Foreign Secretary 1981-1984. Quoted by Sir James Goldsmith, speaking to the Federation of small businesses, Newcastle, 27 June 1996. It’s not recorded whether Cheysson was bothered by this or not.

So there you have them, an unsavoury cabal of liars and elitists. Why on Earth would the author of that EUObs piece expect any kind of commitment to open government from their heirs on the present-day Council of Ministers?

If this seems intrusive, remember that the members of Council working groups are not there in a personal capacity. They are there on behalf of their national governments, who in turn are in office on behalf of their voters. As a citizen and a taxpayer in the UK, it is my money and my voice that the British members of Council working groups are representing. Why should I not be allowed to know how my money is being spent and what words my voice is saying?

He pleads for a change of heart, but their hearts are as black as night. As is the future for every European nation that remains shackled to their evil empire.
