EU is destroying our values and our civilisation

THE leaders of Europe appear to have a death wish for our civilisation.

Their much vaunted dream of unity has turned into a nightmare of wilful destruction and permanent chaos. Their disastrous experiment of a single currency has led to economic stagnation, massive debts and soaring unemployment. Their fixation with mass immigration is wrecking European culture. Their ideology of political integration has trashed democracy while promoting the growth of bureaucracy and corruption.

Now comes the biggest catastrophe of all: the deepening refugee crisis which has caused scenes of misery and upheaval across Europe. It is a disaster largely created by Brussels through its insistence both on free movement throughout the union and on the entitlement of migrants to claim welfare in any EU country.

That is why so many foreigners are determined to settle in Europe. In recent days, our politicians and much of the media have eagerly peddled the sentimentalised narrative about desperate refugees fleeing terrible persecution in Syria. But that is true of only a minority of cases. In fact, of the 350,000 migrants who have arrived in Europe so far this year, just a quarter were from Syria. Many of the others are actually young male economic migrants looking opportunistically for a more comfortable life in Europe, often courtesy of the taxpayer.

Witnessing the current descent into mayhem, most rational politicians would abandon their failed approach, try to restore order and go back to stronger borders. But that is not the attitude of the federalist maniacs who run the EU.

We are at a turning point in our history

Instead, they aim to use the gigantic influx of migrants as a vehicle to further demolish member states. So we now hear the EU leaders pontificating about the need for a “single EU asylum policy.” As with bankrupt shambles of the single currency, the answer is always more Europe, more integration.

What is especially ironic is that Germany, under the leadership of Angela Merkel, is the driving force behind this demand to throw Europe’s doors wide open. The European Union was first established in the wake of the Second World War as a means of acting as a restraint on Germany, yet the EU has now turned into a malignant instrument for the German domination of Europe. It was Merkel’s self-righteous, bombastic declaration that Germany would take in almost a million refugees that sparked the current crisis. Yet now, having encouraged this colossal wave of migrants without any consultation, Germany has the cheek to demand that other countries take their “fair share.”

One of the most nauseating aspects of this arrogance is the Germans’ eagerness to blackmail the British government, warning that Merkel will not support David Cameron’s attempt to reform the EU unless he Britain accepts more migrants. Such intimidation is intolerable, not only because Britain has an even higher level of immigration than Germany and has provided more than £1 billion in aid to Syrian refugee camps, but also because Merkel has absolutely no intention of agreeing to any real reform of the EU. Like Brussels itself, Germany is fixed on the course of towards federal unification.

Cameron should face up to that reality. There is no hope for his renegotiations, no chance that Brussels will allow us to regain some of our independence. Every new calamity, from Greek debt to the refugee crisis, is just used by the EU’s unaccountable, unelected elite to grab more power. Thankfully, unlike the Tory government, the British people are increasingly waking up to this truth. Yesterday, an opinion poll showed that 51 per cent of the electorate now support Britain’s exit from the EU, the first time there has been a majority in favour of withdrawal for two years.

The Eurosceptic mood will only be strengthened as the migration crisis worsens. The British people know that the current influx will not be a single event. On the contrary the sentimentalised approach will only encourage further, even bigger waves because migrants and people traffickers can see that the EU is the softest of touches. The current demand from EU President Jean-Claude Juncker that 160,000 asylum seekers should be relocated around the member states will be completely overtaken by a far greater floodtide across borderless Europe.

Effectively, what we will experience under the EU’s suicidal rule is the merger of the European, Middle Eastern and North African cultures.

Our leaders have absolutely no inclination to halt this trend. On the contrary, the whole European project is based on contempt for our heritage and national independence. Already mass immigration meant the import into Europe of alien cultures that have no empathy with our traditions of liberty, democracy, free speech, and women’s rights. Feminised, liberal Sweden, which has seen a colossal influx of Muslims in recent years, is now one of the rape capitals of the world. In Britain, too, the social revolution has brought in sharia law, the burka, predatory sex gangs, ballot box fraud and female genital mutilation.

We are at a turning point in our history. Either we can regain our sovereignty and restore control of our national destiny. Or we can maintain our subjugation to Brussels, down which road lies the certainty of our national demise.
