When looking at he European Union and the direction it has been taking for the past decade only the a person without an ounce of common sense could not have failed to notice that the EU has been heading towards a federal state and yesterday during the annual state of the union address the European Commission president Jose Manuel Barroso officially called for a federal European state.

We have to ask why the sudden honesty and do the leaders of the EU think that Europe is ready to give up individual sovereignty in the face of the current financial crisis, unfortunately I think that the EU has called it right as many of the biggest countries such as France Italy Spain and especially Germany are willing to do just this.

State of the Union

You only have to look at the state of the union to see that something must be done both economically and socially, it was down to the nationalism of the European powers that resulted in two devastating world wars that wrecked europe and it this fear that brought the idea of a European Union into being.

In 195o the European Coal and Steel Community (ECC) was created to tie the European countries together and ensure that wars in Europe would become a thing of the past. In 1957 the Treaty of Rome was signed and this laid the foundations for the modern EU by creating the European Economic Community (EEC).Map of the European Coal and steel Community ECC

In 1973 a referendum was called in the UK and the British public was asked  “Do you think the UK should stay in the European Community (Common Market)?” the British people voted 68% yes to stay in the EEC and this would be the last time the The British public would be allowed to decide their fate when it came to Europe.

The current state of the EU is mainly caused by the financial sector and its huge debts that governments thought was a good idea to push onto the tax payers of their respective states causing political rifts to widen enough to threaten the whole of the EU which has caused the new EU government to reafirm its position by making sure the timetable for its political coup is brought in before the whole system can collapse.

Collectivism Vs Individualism

The whole purpose of the EU was and is to create a common market in which all Europeans live a central run collective, so when we look at the EU and the future we have to look at the problem in the light of Collectivism Vs Individualism. Collectivism is the concept that we all live in harmony like were all from one big village but in order to achieve this you must first kill off nationalism and this is the role of social engineering through psychology which has been most successfully through the media.

Here in the west we have an extensive media system that uses TV, Radio and tcollectivism logohe Internet to bombard us daily with advertisements loaded with subtle hints all aimed at getting us to consume but not only this but to get us all to consume the same things and wear the same clothes, This is evident when you look across Europe and see major shopping chains selling very similar if not the same products in once very different countries.

What has all this got to do with politics well the short answer is that the closer our minds come to being the same in our private lives then the closer we are to a conscious connection and therefore will be more willing to accept loosely worded legislation that can fits across the whole of the EU effectively removing borders in our minds so they can be removed in the real world.

The opposite to Collectivism is Individualism this is the mind set that most people strive to achieve a sense of being the only one like you, the problem with this is that governing this type of population is very difficult as you would need different levels of legislation requiring local and regional governments and this would make global governance impossible. This mind set is seen as something of an enemy of the state and has been effectively stamped out in a way which tricks people into thinking that are individual when the reality is that majority of us live in a kind of uniformity and every year this uniformity is changed but is always the same as others in our society thus giving the impression of choice when actually there is none.

Another aspect of the individual mindset that troubles policy makers is the unpredictability of the individual resulting in a unpredictable population and this more than anything else is simple unacceptable to those who believe in long term plans as they are unable to plan effectively for the future. Blue box one indvidual and red box of a collective

Social freedom was something that the Soviet Union tried the best part of 40 years to destroy but even under the totalitarian control of the politburo this was not achievable and was the largest contributor to the final destruction of the communist state so it troubles me deeply that this is exaclty the model that EU seems to be following although this time it is being done via the fake label of freedom under liberal fascism.

Liberal Fascism

Over the past 60 years the people of Europe have become used to peace and social stability but this has come at German Reich eagle holding EU flaga cost and if Barruso gets his way that cost will eventually be total loss of sovereignty. Under the constant barrage of Liberal legislation being handed down in the name of a future European Federation the indvidual has less rights than our forefathers had before world war 2. I do not see this assualt on freedom to abate anytime soon and I predict that once are current heads of state become little more than legislators of a state rather than a coutry we will see an acceleration of this type of government mushroom.

Liberal Fascism is a smiley faced fascism in which the state controls all for the good of the people even if they do not want it, as the saying goes They’re doing it for you. We can see signs of this through the smoking ban and pro human rights laws that trump the rights of others or the newly formed anti-terrorism laws that allow individuals to be detained with little or no evidence on the premise that may in the future commit a crime.

The problem with this system is that it will always revert to tyranny at some point either in the near or distant future you only have to look at the thirties and forties to see this eventuality. Fascism does not mean racism like history has been written to make you believe Fascists seek elevation of their nation based on commitment to an organic national community where its individuals are united together as one people through national identity.  I don’t know about you but to me this sounds a lot like the European Federation’s vision.

Between Now And The Next Elections

The fact that this is now common knowledge means that behind the scenes the plan for the European Federation has already been set and we have between now and the next elections to get our leaders to hold referendums as soon as possible for the people to have their say on their future and the future of our children, I think that the process has been sped up because of France’s election of Francoise Hollande and his socialist pro EU stance the fear is now that the rest of Europe will be voting for leaders who are willing to stand up to the fiction that austerity will get us out of this financial mess.

I also think that between now and the near future we will start to see lots of pro EU rhetoric both from the media and our governments trying to convince us that the EU is the European utopia that they all want us to believe in. The main reasons for this are money the EU is an economic power house with the German superpower being the engine that drives us forward but this is all designed with central planning in mind and that is where vast moajority of the wealth will go to if you would like proof of this then read the European Stability Mechanism’s (ESM) mandate and you will see that once we have a central federal government they can activate this ESM and literally suck the states dry of capital making it impossible for them ever to escape the just like the US states are unable to break their unity.

Whats the Alternative

I know that I paint a bleak picture and I can hear you ask what’s the alternative to a European Federation, But this is exactly what the policies makers want us to think then we will have no choice but to stick together. But the truth is that we do have an alternative there is no reason why cannot have free  trade within Europe and return to our own currencies removing the Euro problem altogether and get rid of the European Union and return to creating our own laws with our own populations in mind but make sure that trade is controlled through European Trade Organization that can ensure we stay the economic power house that we are today.

European unity does not require a European Federation because if I know one thing from history is that today its united Europe tomorrow a united Asia and in the future a Global government. If this is what you envisage as good future then by all means promote the EU but if you think its difficult today trying to get your government to listen how hard do you think it will be when that government is not even on your continent.

Metropolitan University Border Agency

In the news today is that fact that the London Metropolitan University (LMU) has lost its Highly Trusted Status (HTS) which is a system that allows the university to issue visa’s for overseas students coming to live and study here in the UK. Apparently it has lost this status on three accounts

  1. More than a quarter of the students sampled were studying at the university when they had no leave to remain in this country.
  2. A “significant proportion” of checked files found “no proper evidence” that the mandatory English levels had been reached.
  3. Universities must know that students are turning up for their course and are not using a student visa to enter the country for work, but more than half of the records sampled suggested the university “just didn’t know” whether students were turning up for classes or not.

These three items seem to me to be the most basic of levels that the University could have failed on so when they release a statement “The implications of the revocation are hugely significant and far-reaching, and the university has already started to deal with these. You can’t help but ask why wasn’t the issues addressed before the license was revoked even after a previous investigation had found similar failings 6 months before.

The University system has long been a way for people from all over the world to come and stay in the UK to earn qualifications and also use us as hub to go and visit the rest of Europe so it really is a great shame that this has come to pass and possibly dented the reputation of the British University system.

The Blame Game

I think the fact that this unprecedented decision has been handed down from the UK Border Agency less than a week after it was blasted for losing over 150,000 immigrants is a blatant attempt at playing the blame game and pushing the spotlight from itself onto the LMU which is not only harmful but a pathetic attempt to justify its own ineptitude.

When I see this story I have to ask the simple question of why are universities allowed to issue visa’s in the first place, the administration staff in these institutes are not trained in detecting anomalies or discrepancies withing the application and I would think that they don’t have access to other universities or immigration records to check for any deliberate patterns, this is something that the UKBA should be doing exclusively, that is what we should be asking why are private institutes acting on behalf of a government authority.

It was not so long ago in the news that people were gaining access to the UK via fake universities that had sponsored them and many I am sure are probably still here working full time, this latest story as far as I am concerned just shows that the UKBA has been asleep at the wheel for a long time so the blame cannot only go to the current set of ministers but the previous government also.

Its now time for the immigration minister Damian Green to wake up and start to look at this problem from a new perspective, revoking the LMU’s ability to issue visa’s should be suspended permanently and also the same should be said for all universities across the UK. When applying for courses all applicants should be first vetted before they can apply for the course that they want and the UKBA should have a serious shakedown getting rid of its incompetent managers who would rather push the responsibility on the universities than themselves.

Overseas students should also have a booklet issued by the UKBA which they have to log all hours worked and also the classes being taken and when so that any variances in attendance at both work and classes can be checked and if any student is found to be working instead of attending classes it should be punished with instant revoking of the visa and all future applications rejected.

I am proud of the United Kingdoms attitude to overseas students and that we allow people from all over the world to come over and I would not have met my wife if it wasn’t for this system but for to long we have allowed the British borders to be a sive for anyone who wants to come and stay on this tiny island. Well as far as I can tell the Metropolitan University Border Agency is one large hole that has been plugged and stay plugged.

I do feel sorry for the innocent students who have been dragged into this diplomatic tussle and I hope that all the students who are found to be genuine see their Visa’s reissued without charge and those who were found to be abusing the system they should be deported without delay and a automatic rejection list formulated as a warning to others that we will not tolerate abuse of our education system.
