Wales is a region of the EU for heaven's sake......!

According to Politics Home, Carwyn Hughes, Welsh First Minister, has expressed his delight at the result of the Welsh Referendum saying that the Welsh Assembly will now not have to "get permission from Westminster" to pass laws. Well, he is right in that respect, but omits to mention that eventually he will have to get permission for any laws he wishes to pass - from Brussels.

For Peter Hain - to my knowledge the only South African born Welsh Windbag - to claim that the vote was a sign that voters had decided on "more powers to stand up to the Tory-led Government in Westminster" is but yet another example of political spin. Hain may well present this result as an opportunity to stand up to a Tory-led government - what he has not told the Welsh people is that they have, in effect, subjugated themselves to Europe in the form of the Committee of the Regions (CoR).

Not heard of the Committee of the Regions? In which case a short explanation. It is said that the EU Commission is one of the most powerful voices in the EU, but perhaps it is nearer the truth to say that, if not on a par, then the CoR is the 'top dog'. Just take a look here and watch the video:
"With the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty, the role of the CoR will be strengthened along the entire legislative process. The new treaty obliges the European Commission to consult with local and regional authorities and their associations across the EU as early as the pre-legislative phase, and the CoR, in its role as the voice of local and regional authorities at the EU level, is heavily involved right from this early stage."
Wales is but a region of the EU and it is through the regions that the EU will govern - national parliaments with, or without, any authority are therefore redundant. In actual fact all this 'devolution of power' is but a smokescreen to cover the implementation of rule from Brussels, via the CoR. As IanPJ on Politics writes in this post, it is nothing but 'smoke and bloody mirrors'!

Some time ago I linked to this post by Richard North, EU Referendum, in which he wrote about 'Judas Goats'. Well dear reader, the like of Carwyn Hughes, Peter Hain, David Cameron, Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband are the 'Judas Goats' of our present political system. As a result, we the people, are being led to slaughter like the sheep we are.

Readers will no doubt recall the programme shown on BBC2 "One man and his dog" in which now and again there appeared to be one or two sheep that just would not do what they were supposed to. It also seems that research shows that sheep are not that dumb as some would have us believe!

Well politicos, there are quite a few of us sheep that have no intention of being a member of the flock and who are not that dumb!

Forgive them, for they know not what they do!

You can't blame the ordinary chap on the street, they're not told the truth. The media is silent when you've had a hard day, you rely on the news to tell you what is going on. The politicians are a bunch of traitors, liars and schemers, the only people screaming are the likes of you and I on the blogosphere.

My heart is heavy. I'm going through one of those despairing phases.

I couldn't watch all of the CoR video propaganda; it made me so angry that I was in danger of throwing my laptop at the wall. How much is all that crap costing us and who actually asked for it, because I wasn't asked. I presume this is once again the Regional Assemblies returning to be imposed upon us.

As I've said and thought for a long time, the EU is an evil organisation, which only has malign intent for us its victims. It's worse than the mafia coming around once a week and demanding protection money.

WfW, feeling better? Aye and don't forget Scotland is also a region. Not if I had my way it wouldn't be.

SR Not much, but thank you for asking.....

How could I forget Scotland, the land famed for fine whiskey and pretty women?
