euro-deviants

The truth is now out about who is really running the EU project, the Groupe de Francfort includes only “an unelected cabal made of up eight people: Lagarde; Merkel; Sarkozy; Mario Draghi, the new president of the ECB; José Manuel Barroso, the president of the European Commission; Jean-Claude Juncker, chairman of the Eurogroup; Herman van Rompuy, the president of the European Council; and Olli Rehn, Europe’s economic and monetary affairs commissioner.”

I doubt this group is new, it is only now we have found out. Since the rebuttal to ex-Prime Minister George Papandreou’s referendum idea, from Merkel and Sarkozy “we are prepared no matter what response the Greek Parliament or people give” Merkel said of saving the euro. The language used by those in the Francfort Groupe has become increasingly petulant.

It is as though the EU project is now do or die for the FG, they can see the euro is in severe crisis and those in the FG have been consistent in keeping with the mantra that the euro cannot fail or Europe will fail, citing war and social strife etc. The EU ‘elite’ are finding themselves against the markets and economic reality, the people, national parliaments et al. And it seems that it may just be that with this crisis and the attention it is gaining that the real motivations of EU project are getting through to the masses,  when even the Telegraph has taken to calling this set-up the Politburo , one hopes that the  “ignorance is strength” is being diminished.

From the telegraph euro-crisis live blog this morning bruno waterfield posted this:

A new name for the club – “the euro deviants” – has been coined after Jose Manuel Barroso, the commission president, explained that “not belonging is the deviation from the rule” because all EU members, bar Britain, are committed to eventually joining the single currency.

Evidently if you deviate from EU doctrine you get the boot with  George Papandreou and Brlusconi removed and being replaced by the  installed ‘national unity’ governments, national parliaments are now nothing but card-carrying members – an ‘outer party’ to the EU elite, who must stick to the rules or leave.
