The day democracy died

The 3rd November 2011.

Remember that date - because it is the date when the principle of democracy died in Europe.

Anyone who has read this blog in the past will know what I think of the EU - and that I have been warning about its anti-democratic nature for some years - but even I didn't expect the EU to behave in the way it just has.

That the leaders of some EU nations were so prepared to so completely ride roughshod over the democratic will of another nation is not new. To do it so brazenly and so openly is flabbergasting.

And yet - even as this happens, our media ignore what this means.

They see with their own eyes how the knife in the shape of a "bail out" is wielded by the killers - Sarkozy and Merkel - and thrust into the victim. They watch as the knife is plunged into the beating heart of the democracy and their only concern is that the knife is unharmed.

Incredible. This is truly a day of infamy. A day which, in years to come and in the history books of the future, will be remembered as the day the EU finally did away with any pretence of democracy.

And the biggest irony of all is that the democracy was killed off in the nation which gave birth to the idea over 2000 years ago.
