EU President Tells David Cameron to Get Stuffed on Migrant Benefits Reforms

Politics / EU_Referendum Feb 16, 2016 - 12:12 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Politics

The un elected President of the European Parliament, warned David Cameron that even the heavily watered down agreement due to be announced by the end of this week would not be legally binding and subject to debate and revision by MEP members AFTER the UK votes to stay in the European Union, members who will be guided by their respective UK benefits recipient governments such as Poland, Hungary, and a dozen other eastern european UK benefits claiming states.


This is precisely what I warned would happen following last weeks pantomime that had David Cameron 'chamberlain' style waving a piece of paper of 'reform in our time' as the following video analysis illustrates -

https://youtu.be/MF3QLhoxkwQ

The bottom line where the negotiations are concerned is that Britain stands alone against a dozen benefits claiming eastern european states that collectively can always out vote anything that Britain puts forward in terms of restricting benefits for migrants for the fundamental reason that without treaty change then ALL agreements are WORTHLESS! Literally not worth the paper they are printed on as the European Commission President made clear that the European Parliament would NOT STAR WORK ON LEGISLATION UNTIL AFTER BRITAIN HAS VOTED TO STAY IN THE UK. Furthermore barely a few hours ago it was the turn of the Czech Republic to demand that child benefit is not cut for Czech migrants.

And so even before a a UK In / Out referendum is even held, the European Union is busy putting the groundwork in place to ensure that any agreement made this week will have NO CONSQUENCES, a complete smoke and mirrors exercise to hood wink the people of Britain into voting to giving up sovereignty for ever! For there WILL BE NO SECOND referendum given the forty year long trend towards the emergence of the European Super state.

Therefore this really IS Britain's very last chance for freedom as I illustrated a couple of weeks ago :

03 Feb 2016 - David Chamberlain Cameron, Britain's Last Chance for Freedom From Emerging European Super State

Britain's Last Chance to Gain Freedom from Emerging European Super State

What most pundits fail to recognise or lack experience of is trend and momentum both of which for the past 40 years have been moving in one direction that for the emergence of a highly centralised European super state that the financial crisis and subsequent economic depression of southern europe is accelerating the trend towards.

So whilst it is too late for the euro-zone members who for better or worse are locked into a death embrace that has all but nullified democracy for most of the euro-zone states as the elections in Greece, Spain and Italy have clearly demonstrated the lack for even radical governments such as Syriza to do anything other than obey their German paymasters who control the euro currency and can within a couple of weeks bring fellow euro-zone members to the brink of collapse as was repeatedly demonstrated by Greece last year.

Thus, for Britain the saving grace of not being in the euro-zone offers the UK a unique final opportunity to make the choice of either FREEDOM or become another satellite state revolving around a German centre that will increasingly dictate terms and conditions.

Therefore, given that there would probably not be another referendum for at least 20 years, then this really is Britain's VERY LAST CHANCE. There WON'T be another opportunity because with each passing year the price for a BREXIT increases, and we are not that far off from the point of no return when an exit would result in an economic collapse, much of the situation the euro-zone members have been since they signed up to scrap their currencies and join the Euro-zone.

Of course both the LEAVE and the REMAIN camps put out a lot of propaganda and spin on the others consequences. For LEAVE it's a case of everything smelling of roses in a Britain that has been freed from increasing European bureaucracy and interference, that would be in full control of Britain's borders. Whilst the REMAIN camp paints a picture of FEAR, of economic and financial catastrophe coupled with punitive terms for exit that would seek to punish Britain for daring to exit the euro-zone, so much for so-called european unity built on common purpose and friendship instead the European Union is increasingly a club of FEAR and PARALYSIS.

The Price for Freedom

The truth is that a BREXIT WILL BE ECONOMICALLY PAINFUL despite all of the benefits of being outside of the E.U. The cost of BrExit will be anywhere from 2% to as high as 5% of GDP if the euro-zone is determined to make an example of Britain to act as a warning to others by raising punitive tariffs on trade. However remember that attaining FREEDOM ALWAYS carry's a PRICE, in which respect even the worst case scenario for a 5% loss of GDP in the grand scheme of things does not compare against the infinitely greater price the people of Britain paid for their freedom in both past World Wars and so it is now THIS generations turn to pay a price for the freedom of future generations.

What the people of Britain need to fully understand is that this really is their VERY LAST CHANCE for Freedom!

The following video further illustrates the crisis consequences of the decade long failure to limit benefits for migrants that has prompted whole villages and even towns to up sticks and land themselves on Britain's cities demanding housing, healthcare, school places and of course benefits.
