Development of the EU
Most people have a view about the EU, which has long been sold as a means of free trade between nations of Europe and means of preventing conflict between those nations and the wider world; following the two horrendous world wars initiated by European nations.
However, the EU has, from its inception, been much more than a series of trade agreements, principally between Germany and France and subsequently expanded to what we see today; and NO, the EU has not prevented any wars since 1945.
To put the EU in context it is instructive to look at comments made by various individuals involved in its development; beginning with one of the founders, Jean Monnet:-
"The fusion (of economic functions) would compel nations to fuse their sovereignty into that of a single European State.” Jean Monnet, founder of the European Movement, April 3, 1952.
Note that Churchill did not advocate a single state for Europe but, something like a "United States of Europe" (Zurich, 1946) - Basically he envisaged something similar to the United States of America; but the EU is not structured like the USA; it is built on the Soviet Model.
The EU will not be a United States of Europe, but a single state with all the former nations as subservient provinces controlled by a central power.
Whereas the united States of America came together voluntarily to form a greater nation, the EU is structured more like the Soviet Union which was brought together by force; except that the EU has become a political union by stealth and deception.
Initially the development of the EU proceeded slowly, intermittently and mostly involved trade agreements, treaty revisions with relatively small, but significant political integration and the assimilation of new members; that is up until the Single European Act (1986) and the Maastricht Treaty (1992) when the emphasis shifted more towards political integration and expansion. We begin with developments since the 1949.
On the 4th of April, 1949 the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) was set up to deter Soviet expansionism, prevent militarisation of nations within Europe and to provide security, which would allow European economic and political progress towards the rebuilding of Europe in the aftermath of WW II.
The Treaty of Paris (1951) set-up Coal and Steel cooperation agreements between Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands and West Germany; in order to ensure that, in future, none of these countries could re-arm their military in secret.
The European Economic Community (EEC) was established with the Treaty of Rome (1957) in order to increase economic integration between the states already working within the Treaty of Paris (1951) framework, and a Merger Treaty (1965) brought into existence the first joint institutions.
In 1952 Greece and Turkey joined NATO
On the 23rd of October, 1954 West Germany was invited to join NATO and "subsequently" re-armed; although some units weren't actually disarmed after the war.
On the 9th of May, 1955 West Germany joined NATO
On the 14th May, 1955 the Soviet Union established the Warsaw Pact in response to West Germany joining NATO
In 1959 a European Free Trade Association (EFTA) was established between Austria, Denmark, Norway, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK; the UK left the organisation in 1973 to join the EC.
The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) of farm subsidies began operating in 1962; a policy which the French insisted upon as the price for entering the Common Market and agreeing to free trade in industrial goods.
Prominent EU Politicians
Former East German Communist, born in Hamburg in 1954, of Polish descent, with a PhD in Quantum Chemistry from the Academy of Science in East Berlin. Merkel was also, allegedly, the Secretary for Agitation and Propaganda (Culture?) at the Academy of Sciences' Communist Youth Movement.
She was voted in as President of the European Council in 2007 and was instrumental in re-launching the failed "Constitution for Europe" disguised as a Reform treaty - the Treaty of Lisbon.
The "Constitution for Europe" was rejected by the Dutch and French in referendums in 2005; based largely on fears of loss of sovereignty in each of those countries.
The Lisbon Treaty was called a Reform Treaty so as to allow politicians in member countries an excuse not to hold a referendum; by claiming it would not be necessary since the treaty was only amending earlier treaties and no Constitutional changes had taken place.
Her response to the success of her efforts was illustrated in her comments at the time.
“The substance of the Constitution is preserved. That is a fact.” (German Chancellor Angela Merkel on the Lisbon Treaty)
What did Brown say about a Referendum on the Lisbon Treaty?
"If we needed a referendum we would have one. But I think most people recognise that there is not a fundamental change taking place as a result of this amended treaty.
" Gordon Brown The UK Prime Minister, interviewed by the BBC, 24th September 2007

The Labour Party and the EU
It is verifiable that all of the problems that Britain has faced since 2010 have resulted almost entirely from decisions made by members of the New Labour; on behalf, and/or at the direction of the EU. Left wing Politicians who tried to con the electorate by disingenuously blaming all of our problems on the Conservative Party or the Banks at the time of the General Election.
Today the British, that is to say those resident in Britain prior to the opening of the borders to Europe by New Labour; acting as agents for the EU, have become second class citizens in their own country in terms of access to jobs, housing, healthcare, social amenities, equality and quality of life. The problem with housing was never addressed by Labour politicians (the current ones) even though they were aware of the fact that there was a rapidly increasing population; which they were actually promoting. The model for this Utopian society that they were engineering, on behalf of the EU, was Multiculturalism, or to put it in context; introduced large scale segregation within existing settled communities.
No proper provision was made for school places nor adequate healthcare. In fact, doctors were paid larger salaries in return for fewer working hours and were allowed to opt out of “after hours” provision – these politicians actually reduced capacity at the same time as increasing the population; an act tantamount to criminal mismanagement.
These politicians would also like you to believe that they bear no responsibility for the effects of the financial crisis on Britain which led to a worldwide recession, making it much harder to get out of debt, and that it was all the fault of the banks.
In fact, the crisis was set in motion by Left wing politicians in the US (Democrats), under Clinton, who relaxed regulation put in place to prevent the recurrence of the Great Depression (1929 –1939) and then encouraged lenders to give, effectively, unsecured loans to poor families to enable them to buy their own property.
As a result the banks were left holding large amounts of worthless collateral (“sub-prime” mortgages) and to protect themselves the banks hid these sub-prime assets amongst, prime mortgage assets as Collateralised Debt Obligations (CDO's) and sold them on to other institutions. This resulted in a contagion of debt spreading throughout the financial system.
When it became clear that the system was awash with unrecoverable debt, it collapsed.
The current Labour politicians were in the middle of that and instead of acting prudently, they were borrowing and spending like there was no tomorrow (even at the height of the crisis, and not just on the banks who they failed to protect, and even continued up until they were replaced in the 2010); this was after they had previously proclaimed that they had put an end to “Boom and Bust”.

British Independence Day
(23rd June, 2016)
on taking back our Sovereignty
The euexit website was established to attempt to clarify a number of areas of confusion related to the European Union (EU) and its relationship with the UK, particularly since we are at a point where a referendum has taken place, as a result of the recent General Election. The contents of this website are relevant whichever party had won on the 8th May 2015. Fortunately, the Conservatives, with their promise of a referendum did win and now we must not waste the opportunity that this presents. As the EU evolves further, more questions will be asked, as we are drawn ever deeper into loss of control of our own affairs and interests. We begin with a short history of the development of the EU.
The Queen and the EU Constitution
On the recent four day State visit to Germany, beginning on the 24th June 2015, the conservative government was accused of using the Queen to promote a pro-EU agenda following her speech highlighting the need for cooperation within Europe.
The problem is that the Queen has been involved in the integration process since at least 1972 when Heath took us into the Common Market.
Since that time the Queen, and individual Prime Ministers, have signed six European Treaties which have changed the nature of the UK from a democratic sovereign nation to that of a province of a Godless, Undemocratic, Supranational Capitalist State Continued
Trade with Europe - Not Ruled over by the Political EU
28th June, 2016
Response to attacks on Leave voters
No one prevented the young voters from casting their votes - so obviously they could not be bothered - now the Fabian Society membership is trying to subvert democracy; as is their avowed intention.
To vote remain after the EU has announced that all member states will be required to join the Euro; give up control of their own armed forces (to Germany); to lose control of taxation, pensions and all fiscal matters. To give away our Common Law safeguards and live under a Police State with Brussels deciding who can live in our country - To lose control over how many we have to support in perpetuity - is an abomination.
Dictatorships routinely overturn or ignore Referendums. We currently live in Democracy unless the "Remain" traitors force us to live under a Militarised Totalitarian EU Police State - so admired by the ruling Old men and Old women "elites" in Brussels who formerly supported the Old Soviet Union - upon which the EU is modelled.
No sane person would voluntarily give up their freedom to a Dictatorship - not even one that is not yet fully formed.
