Default The Federal States of Europe!

Yesterday something quite momentous occured. Twenty Seven States in Europe met at a Conference in order to save the Euro which Seventeen of them use.

They wanted to enact a new treaty to give Brussels the power to set budgits on an international level for individual soverignties and thus move the European Union to complete economic and financial status. This would create a Twenty Seven State strong Federation within the European Continent.

This project is spear headed by the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, who runs the most powerful economy on the continent, and is supported by the French. This Federal Europe would then effectively be run by a Franco-Germanic bloc.

Last night at twenty six countries said "YAY" to allow Germany a new Fourth Reich....England said absolutely not. The French President was so angry he had to be physically restrained

Meanwhile, in anticipation of the probable collapse of the Euro Currency it is rumoured that Germany is printing Deutsch Marks again...no doubt when the Euro collapses Ms Merkel will say to the 17 states using the currency that they may use German Marks if they wish instead. Still...17 States will be an improvement on the Twenty Seven the Hungry German Chancellor wished she could have

It is a watershed moment in the history of Britain’s often tortured relationship with Europe. For decades, with the honourable exception of Mrs Thatcher, our political leaders shamefully surrendered ever more of our sovereignty to Brussels despite the growing anger of the British public.

However, in a display of enormous political courage, David Cameron yesterday finally said no to the European elite – vetoing plans for a treaty that included an EU-wide tax on financial transactions, which would have badly hobbled the City of London.

Today the Mail salutes Mr Cameron for his courageous leadership and resolve in standing up to Angela Merkel and, in particular, to the preposterous Nicolas Sarkozy, whose country desperately clings to Germany’s skirt to hide the fact its own banks are in a perilous state.

The howls of protest from President Sarkozy (and his refusal to shake the Prime Minister’s hand) speak volumes about the petulance of the eurocrats who fail to get their own way.

But make no mistake: for Mr Cameron the battle is only just beginning and he will need enormous strength in coming weeks.

By dawn yesterday, the obsessively pro-European BBC – which initially treated Britain’s veto with funereal mourning – was spewing out apocalyptic warnings about the UK being in parlous ‘isolation’ on the ‘margins’ of the EU.

Mr Cameron must stand up to his chattering-class critics – and make clear that there is now a wonderful opportunity for Britain gradually to loosen itself from the shackles of a statist, over-regulated, anti-democratic, corrupt EU.
While our neighbours bind themselves ever closer to the EU with red-tape and sacrifice their democracies, the UK – while retaining a strong relationship with Europe – should also have the confidence to look in addition to the rest of the world as trading partners.

The bluster of Mr Cameron’s European critics is just that. For years, the EU’s share of world trade has been shrinking and the idea that it can stop doing business with Britain and its 60million citizens is a nonsense.
Which brings us to the Coalition. Despite Nick Clegg personally approving the use of the veto, Lib Dems are in simmering revolt and questions will inevitably be asked over whether the Coalition can survive.

Mr Cameron must stare them down. He can do so in the knowledge that the Lib Dems would be annihilated in any election; the polls show a huge majority of Britons want to re-negotiate our relationship with the EU; and that the appeal of UKIP (whose votes probably cost the Tories the last election) has been diminished.

And what of the euro? Amid yesterday’s extraordinary political drama, it’s easy to forget that this week’s summit was supposed to be the last chance to save the single currency. In fact, very little was achieved.

The fundamental weakness of the one-size-fits-all euro remains, while Germany still refuses to allow the European Central Bank to become a lender of last resort to help keep the likes of Greece solvent.

Nor are there any guarantees that, once they recognise they are being asked to hand over control of their budgets to Germany and an unaccountable Brussels cabal, the people of Europe – some of whom, such as the Irish, are constitutionally entitled to a referendum – will agree to the terms of yesterday’s ‘accord’.

Nobody should be wishing for the euro to implode. The short-term implications would be extremely painful.

But, as Dominic Sandbrook argues on these pages, pulling out of the euro could be the salvation of many nations.

One thing is certain: Mr Cameron’s courage and leadership yesterday show that, while desiring a strong relationship with our EU partners, Britain can still control her own destiny.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rB5Nbp_gmgQ Yes...I admit ive sung this more then once today

When Britain first, at Heaven's command
Arose from out the azure main;
This was the charter of the land,
And guardian angels sang this strain:
"Rule, Britannia! rule the waves:
"Britons never will be slaves."

The nations, not so blest as thee,
Must, in their turns, to tyrants fall;
While thou shalt flourish great and free,
The dread and envy of them all.
"Rule, Britannia! rule the waves:
"Britons never will be slaves."

Still more majestic shalt thou rise,
More dreadful, from each foreign stroke;
As the loud blast that tears the skies,
Serves but to root thy native oak.
"Rule, Britannia! rule the waves:
"Britons never will be slaves."

Thee haughty tyrants ne'er shall tame:
All their attempts to bend thee down,
Will but arouse thy generous flame;
But work their woe, and thy renown.
"Rule, Britannia! rule the waves:
"Britons never will be slaves."

To thee belongs the rural reign;
Thy cities shall with commerce shine:
All thine shall be the subject main,
And every shore it circles thine.
"Rule, Britannia! rule the waves:
"Britons never will be slaves."

The Muses, still with freedom found,
Shall to thy happy coast repair;
Blest Isle! With matchless beauty crown'd,
And manly hearts to guard the fair.
"Rule, Britannia! rule the waves:
"Britons never will be slaves."
