Readers of Sunday newspapers have favourite columnists to whom they turn to first, even prior to reading the news. Depending on the newspaper some turn to Matthew Parris (Times), Peter Hitchens (Mail) or Matthew d'Ancona (Telegraph) but if one is seeking good, investigative journalism there is only one port of call: Christopher Booker of the Sunday Telegraph. Tomorrow he turns his attention to the carbon trading scam and the EU's Galileo satellite system with. as usual, telling effect.
Now if anything demonstrated the illogical thinking of our EU elite it must be the idea of introducing a satellite guidance system, the use of which would be chargeable to its users, when an alternative, reliable system was available and which was also free to the user. The word "Doh" springs to mind.
More importantly, it is worth bearing in mind that if the user can be told where he is, it is not impossible for the provider to know where the user is - and it is such concerns about personal privacy, which have never been denied, that must raise questions amongst those concerned about that subject. The point also needs to be made that the introduction of "road pricing" would also be that much easier to introduce and manage.
A more important question arises with the introduction of Galileo, which is: were we ever asked if we wanted such a system introduced and were we in agreement that we would fund it? The answer to both questions is in the negative and further demonstrates the undemocratic nature of the European Union.
For how much longer will the British people accept what amounts to "rule from abroad" before they rebel and take to the streets against this, coupled with the acquiesence of those who are supposed to safeguard our independence?
