At the beginning, Blair appeared to be a breath of fresh air after years of Tory sleaze. But soon enough it was proved that a country run by Blair
and his yes-men was even worse than one run by the ineffectual John Major.
In my opinion, Tony Blair is a traitor (having given away British sovereign power to Brussels) and a liability to the country. The sooner he is voted
out the better. Dare I say, I doubt very much that we can get anyone worse.
I agree with every word in this post.
Blair has a 'Grand Plan' to destroy British national identity and, ultimately, to destroy Britain as an independent, democratic country.
The first part of this is to break-up the UK into pointless semi-autonomous regions - this has already happened in Scotland and Wales and the
foundations are being laid for English regions, too.
Gradually, more power will be devolved from Westminster to these regions.
At the same time, the really important stuff is gradually being handed to Europe (with many decisions taken by unelected, unaccountable and corrupt
officials). European Law already overrides British Law in many areas, and if Blair and his accolytes have his way, Europe will be handed our powers
on tax, defence, immigration, etc.
The eventual result of this will be that power is vested in Europe at the top-level and in semi-automonous Uk regions reporting direct to Brussells.
At this point, there will be effectively no national British government and therefore no country and little democracy.
There will still be elections, of course, but they won't mean anything because so many decisions in Europe are taken by officials and not by
Blair wants this because rule by Europe will mean that we are for ever ruled by a left-of-centre regime. This is because the electoral systems of
most European countries differ from the UK's and all most all of Europe (apart from Italy) is traditionally ruled by weak coalitions of
left-of-centre/far left political parties.
Europe is hugely undemocratic and there are already plans to make it an offence to make 'UnEuropean' comments.
At the same time, political correctness is now out of control in all European and, to a certain extent, British institutions and our civil liberties
are being eroded by backdoor measures introduced as part of the so-called war on terror.
The US should be very worried about the way Britain is going under Blair - your last real European ally will soon be an undemocratic offshoot of an
intolerant socialist Europe-wide regime.
If I had to choose between becoming the 51st state of the US or becoming part of Europe I'd choose the former any day (it's not so silly, after all,
London is nearer to Washington than Hawaii!).
I hope and pray that Michael Howard and The Conservative Party will win the next election so that some of the damage done by Blair and his elitist,
intolerant, cynical government will be reversed.
