Following my post about Oborne, that icon of political journalism, praising William Hague and stating that he had regained control of foreign policy we read in the same newspaper, on the same day, that the EU are about to use another 'sleight-of-hand' (misuse of a clause in the Lisbon Treaty, namely 'structured co-operation') to initiate the introduction of a EU military headquarters.
Bruno Waterfield's article points out that using 'structured co-operation' would mean the decision then becomes one that would be taken by majority voting and would thus negate William Hague's threatened veto - so much for Hague regaining control of foreign policy. On the Daily Telegraph website, although I am unable to find it in my print edition, comes a 'whining' piece by Geoffrey Van Orden (Conservative MEP) who writes that since 1998 he has led opposition to the EU's meddling in defence matters - and this is no doubt another attempt by the Conservative Party to show their Eurosceptism. Let us not dwell too much on the idiocy of a newspaper producing two articles at total variance with each other - it is, I am sure we all agree, cruel to mock the afflicted; suffice it to say, a serious broadsheet the Daily Telegraph ain't.
That the Conservative Party have practised what is probably the greatest political deception on the British people is now laid bare for all to see. That they have been aided and abetted by the media, especially the Daily Telegraph, is beyond argument. That the likes of Cameron, MilibandE and Clegg wear civilian clothing rather than military uniforms does not detract from the fact they are no better than dictators - and in common with totalitarian dictators, they seem to get themselves 'elected' by robotic followers.
From time to time Richard North, EU Referendum, asks why we do not rise up and slaughter 'them' and I can only concur with his question - with the proviso that 'Them' does not just include the politicians; it includes every bureaucrat and every section of the media that allows this deception to continue.
