Slovak PM Crawls to Brussels – ‘Don’t Consult Voters!’
Sad to see that Slovakia’s Prime Minister Fico has urged EU leaders to avoid referendum “adventures” on domestic issues because they are putting the EU and the euro at risk.
“I am asking EU leaders to stop with adventures like the British and Italian referendums … on domestic issues which pose a threat to the EU,” he told reporters on Monday (2 January).
What a peculiar mind-set!
Why on EARTH should the fate of the Brussels Empire be a factor in deciding when the people should have their say?
And all the more disturbing, in its overt distaste for democracy, since it comes from a country which has a fairly good record in democratic consultation, and from a leader who has, in the not so distant past, talked sense.
There is an “absolute link between migration and terrorism,” Fico told a news conference….
But listen to his current wittering, worthy of Liar Juncker….
…or Europe’s Arch-Enemy, Mama Stasi Merkel, heir-designate to that bum in Washington who has striven as sedulously on behalf of undesirable aliens in the USA…
….as Mama has in what was once Christendom.
“What will we do if … there is a referendum in Italy on the euro and Italian citizens decide they don’t want the euro?” Fico was quoted as saying…
Well, cheer quite loudly, some of us!
But what a nerve Fico has.
What will WE do?
What will WHO do?
It’s a matter for the Italian people and nobody else, unless Fico’s stint in a position of Euro-prominence has utterly dulled his once-quite-sharp perceptions – he used to be one of the reliables.
Slovakia is hardly the destination of choice for migrants to the EU, but that doesn’t stop Robert Fico railing against them…We protect Slovakia’
But that was before he spent so much time in bad company, the in-crowd in Brussels, who have no patriotic or democratic instincts at all – quite the contrary.
Maybe he’ll recover once he’s back home in a healthy and normal country.
As already mentioned, Slovakia has quite a good record on referenda, both at municipal level...
The Slovak town of Gabcikovo Sunday voted “No” to temporarily taking in 500 asylum seekers. Only 102 of 2,600 votes cast were in favour of accepting asylum seekers.https://euobserver.com/tickers/129821
Perhaps Fico, though, has domestic political reasons for his evident alarm at the prospect of Slovakian voters getting hold of the levers of power.
