As the euro-elections come closer, The Economist has devoted an article to noticing that "Europe is invisible" in the campaign – telling us that it "shouldn't be". As to the invisibility, that certainly is the case. The campaign literature from the main parties scarcely mentions the EU, while a Conservative Party circular letter tells us that the election "gives us an opportunity to send a message to this government, loud and clear: it's time for you to go". Media interest is minimal and the claque obstinately focuses on the domestic political scene.

We are a satellite state of the Greater European Empire, ruled by a supreme government in Brussels. We owe this government neither loyalty nor obedience. It is not our government. It is theirs. It is our enemy.

... Collectively, in the last three weeks, both the politicians and media will have devoted far more time and energy to discussing parliamentary expenses than they have given to the EU in the last three years. ...

Not forgetting hunting with hounds. Whereas there has been very little debate of the industrial scale fraud precipitating the current financial situation.

Neither the Drive-By Media or the Electorate appear to be overly troubled by this.

How did the Electorate awake in Eastern Europe after so many years of somewhat similar Ruling Class behaviour? How did they seemingly nod off again?

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.

Richard, I don't suppose you watched Question Time last night? As well as being exercised by expenses, the audience were equally concerned that "there is no information out there about Europe, we're not being told anything".

Of course we know why that is. The three main parties want us to stay in, but know it's a rubbish deal which wouldn't stand up to serious scrutiny. However, UKIP (for media purposes = N Farage) is incapable of providing sustained serious analysis of anything, while the under the radar UKFirst party has been formed too late to make any serious impact.

It's 'visiting time' in greater Iberia and friends fron The Septic Isle & not so merry old Deutschland are here to tank up some sun & endure dreadful food. They all have a common attitude towards not only the EU but domestic politics as well. It manifests itself as a bemused helplessness coupled with peevishness that one has even mentioned the subject.
The EU is, indeed, invisible to them...they see only the 'in your face' benefits such as hassle-free crossings of borders and, UK excepted, no currency problems. They are not even ready to consider the costs of the (trivial) goodies they the extent that anyone who does is a bore & a spoilsport. Sure, they're not on holiday to discuss that sort of nonsense...and the drip, drip, drip of oppression from Brussels & Westminster has done its work.
The brainwashing is all but complete.
