As the great philosopher Cantona once said, "He who forecasts all perils will never sail the seas".
Snorri Sturluson burst out of the past to reclaim their mortal realm?
Well we're a seafaring nation, our ancestors travelled the great oceans in 40 foot rowing boats, ate whales and we did not built our empires (yes there have been several) by being the kind of snivelling cowards who hide in the broom cupboard and hope Nanny State will scare off the dragons. Our Celtic, Saxon and Danish forebears (and a lot of them looked like bears and smelled worse) sailed into unknown waters and faced whatever monsters waited there. So why are so many people being taken in by shite like this.
Reacting to claims from the chief of the US Army in Europe, Lieutenant-General Frederick "Ben" Hodges, who said that a Brexit would set a dangerous precedent during a time of increased international uncertainty, Colonel Kemp says that warnings over the EU and NATO disintegrating are not realistic.
"I think clearly the leadership of the EU and our own leaders don't agree with general Hodges that the EU is likely to unravel, because if they did I think… we would have seen a much greater effort by EU leaders to help us [the UK] renegotiate our relationship with the EU in the way that this country wants it, and the way that the prime minister tried to achieve," he told the BBC.
"And the second issue is that if the EU unravels, if the other 27 members of the EU can't hold themselves together coherently without the UK, then you do have to ask questions about the whole future of the EU, whether we're in or out of it."
Coming only a day after Russia withdrew most of its military personnel from Syria after kicking the gonads of the planet's who most dangerous terrorist states, USA and Turkey (both NATO members incidentally) it looks a tad stupid to try to brand Russia the warmongers. The USA provided ISIS with weapons and ammo and trained their men, while Turkey bought oil from the terrorists in exchange for dollars and military hardware.
Arguing that Britain was the second strongest member of the military alliance, Kemp said:
He's right, NATO existed before the EU was formed and through the years the 'Common Market' as it was originally known, was no more than a free trade area. The idea of economic and political integration of the six member states was not discussed. But NATO kept us safe throughout the Cold War years, although Russia never actually posed a threat.
Britain's Choice: Democracy Or Eurocracy
Democracy in the European Union: The people = one vote, the bureaucracy = millions of votes - because, and I quote, "The people are not intelligent enough to understand complex issues". As we have commented before, it is not just a large section of British public opinion that want's to get our country out of Europe. Last week voters in The Netherlands voted by a big majority against the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement, which would be a step towards ...
