I just posted this in Mary Ellen Synon's
blog comments section, under a different name. Let's hope it gets accepted. Here it is:
This ridiculous government decision to allow police from EU member states to take part in the arrest in Britain of UK citizens for offences allegedly committed in the EU but outside Britain, including for offences that may not even be offences in the UK, when an opt-out is possible (which Denmark has opted for), makes it high time for any one of three things. These are: (i) an immediate backtrack choosing instead an opt-out in place of the current Quisling-style opt-in, (ii) a free vote in Parliament on the subject with the promise of a referendum on it if Parliament supports the opt-in, or (iii) an immediate leadership challenge against Cameron. Any stalking horse will do. Why? Because once Cameron knows he's in danger, he'll back off faster than quicksilver. He's got no real backbone or code - other than his own self-promotion &/or preservation!
Before the UK joined the EU, there would have been all sorts of Parliamentary & press uproar about this plan for EU police to operate in this way in the UK. Now there is dumb & incredulous acceptance of another euro-coup backed up by a Quislingesque act of UK government appeasement at our, us UK citizens', expense. It therefore seems as good a time as any for the Tory House of Commons rebels (there's meant to be at least 40 of them, & I bet the numbers are bigger than that in fact) to act. But will they? Only if there really are enough of them, & if they've got much more backbone than Cameron & his LibDem fellow-nonentities & traitors credit them with.
On the Turkey & Islam thing, & in response to the large number of mosques being built in Western countries, I had a glorious dream recently. I dreamt that two new huge cathedrals had just been built & were full of dedicated worshippers. Where was this? In Mecca & Medina. As a regular church-going Anglican, I want our, & fellow, Western governments to demand this as a matter of urgency! What is good for one side of the fence is equally good for the other one, in my view!Watchet
