After Brexit, who’s next? Italy? Spain? Greece? The European Union is a threat to democracy, peace and prosperity and the peoples of Europe should now unite for its abolition.
Abolish the European Union. Time to burn the EU flag and tear down the institution.
Hi, I'm Leon Hawthorne. The European Union is a threat to democracy, peace and prosperity and we the people should demand it is abolished.
The European Union was inspired by people of goodwill. In the aftermath of two world wars, European leaders tried to find a way to avoid a third.
Their solution was to replicate the American model... form a United States of Europe to remove the nationalist rivalries of old world powers.
Even Winston Churchill championed the strategy:
“It is to recreate the European family... We must build a kind of United States of Europe.”
Churchill asked if there could be a sense of enlarged patriotism and common citizenship for the peoples of Europe. Well, Mr Churchill, the answer then and now is 'no'.
The bonds that hold us together as citizens of Europe are too weak, compared to the bonds that unite every Briton, or every Frenchman, or every German.
Nationalism is natural. We share an affinity with members of our own clan, which often means race, religion, history, language and culture. Outsiders, immigrants, can join, so long as they fit into the national culture.
But there is no country called Europe. There is no European citizenship that inspires love or devotion.
Take my football test. If there were a team called Europe FC, competing against a team representing Africa or Antarctica, would grown men cry with joy or despair at the outcome of the match? No.
The EU is a Tower of Babel, built on faulty foundations, doomed to collapse. I say we should begin to pull it apart, safely.
Or else, first Brexit, next an Italian exit, maybe a Spanish economic collapse, a National Front victory in France, more racist extremists elected in Austria, Germany, Denmark, Sweden.
The irony is the EU was invented to prevent the worst aspects of nationalism. Yet that is exactly what it has created.
"The Nobel Peace Prize for 2012..."
In 2012, a group of globalist sycophants gave the EU the Nobel Peace Prize. At the time, the EU was maneuvering politically in Ukraine... events that threatened post Cold War relations with Russia and led directly to the crisis over Crimea.
The EU has never had any democratic legitimacy. The European dream was imposed by an aristocratic political elite, who never asked the people for prior consent.
When we have voted... in France, in Britain, Denmark and Ireland, we say 'no'. Then they find some way to ignore that response and ask the question again, until they get the right answer.
The EU is like a forced marriage, where we the people are the battered wives, handcuffed in the basement, unable to break free.
It needn't be this way. They could loosen the shackles and form a confederation of nation states, which could even embrace Russia. No European parliament, Commission or supreme court. Just an a'la carte menu, from which each country can pick and mix.
Like a pay-as-you-go mobile phone contract. No strings, no chains, no problem.
Of course, this will not happen. Too many people riding the EU gravy train, and eurocrats with big egos and big pensions who think they know better than the people who pay their salaries.
I'm Leon Hawthorne. Thanks for watching.
