Yesterday evening, the Greek Parliament approved the Austerity Diktat demanded by the Abominable Troika, as could be predicted. The vote perpetrated, the leaders of the two great parties proceeded to sack the 41 parliamentarians who had voted against the ultimatum.
I know nothing of the Greek Constitution, but I’d be mighty surprised if it did not say that the National Parliament is a sovereign body, that MP’s are the freely elected representatives of the people, that the tenure of their parliamentary seat is personal, and that they are to vote according to their own insights and conscience.
But of course, such antiquated notions sit badly with the greater good of Brussels Hegemony.
It used to be that folks who voted the wrong way on EU related issues simply got to vote again, and again, and again, until they returned the Right Answer (see the various Irish referendums of the last decade). Or that the vote was declared invalid if the electorate refused to comply with EU wishes (see the farce over the ‘European Constitution’). Fortunately we have progressed from such burdensome procedures. Now, we simply kick out those MP’s who refuse to follow European orders. Who, after all, do these people think they are? Don’t they know the nation state is dead?
Now all that is still needed, dear reader, is to silence such agents provocateurs who endanger the Greatest Happiness for the Greatest Number of Beurocrats by speaking out against the Glorious Brussels Project. The likes of Nigel Farage, François Hollande and Alfred B. Mittington. These worms, these rats, these… termites, should NOT be allowed to continue their treacherous sabotage of the Millennium by their cynical abuse of Free Speech!
