Laura Sandys has an article on the ConservativeHome blog in which she too preaches the “fear, uncertainty, doubt” meme (Euro-FUD) on the subject of the UK exiting the European Union. In this article she castigates Ukip for providing what she terms “simple but false choices” – to which one can only respond to Ms. Sandys with two words: “Pot” and “Kettle”.
She makes much of Cameron’s letter of February last year to van Rompuy and Barroso, a missive which she calls his “manifesto for reform”. Note the end of his letter/manifesto:
“We urge you and the European Council to answer our peoples’ call for reform………”
According to Wikipedia feudalism is defined as:
“a set of legal and military customs in medieval Europe that flourished between the 9th and 15th centuries, which, broadly defined, was a system for structuring society around relationships derived from the holding of land in exchange for service or labour.”
Wikipedia continues to state that:
“There is no broadly accepted modern definition of feudalism.”
and here I would disagree – I reckon Cameron, pleading as he did with van Rompuy and Barroso, has demonstrated the modern-day version of feudalism.
And still our political class would have us believe that our Parliament is sovereign?
Having only entered Parliament in 2010, Ms. Sandys is either (a) is a committed Europhile; (b) she has been whipped into obeying her leader’s policy; or (c), she is a “career politician” and thus feels it necessary to prostitute herself in order to gain advancement – in which case she is well qualified for inclusion in a quote attributed to Tina Fey,:
“Politics and prostitution have to be the only jobs where inexperience is considered a virtue.”
