And while no-one sensible would begin to suggest that we are in any way seeing the dark clouds of a new totalitarian state descend over Europe
I have to disagree, I believe this is exactly what we are sleep walking into: "power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely."
The politburo of Brussels, is a: nascent totalitarian regime
Lenin started off slowly and it just grew and grew, this is what an originally 'benign' centrally controlled command state, inexorably and in logical progression ends up as - A totalitarian tyranny.
Here in Britain, the apparats and the more powerful Nomenklatura - in recent years, more especially under the nu scum party have put great distance between themselves and us, the plebeians.
The networking between government, the quasi-private sector servicing such departments like the NHS is full of Labour minions and unelected government shills and flunkies ever milking the state.
They drive big cars, educate their kids privately, socialise together and hold us all in a fine contempt, they don't trust us to govern ourselves and the EU is the answer to all their prayers. Because the EU guarantees that the status-quo - will be maintained forever.
It's a two way symbiosis: under the aegis of a Socialist centralised state, the EU has insidiously inserted itself ever more into the fabric of British society.
In the civil service and throughout the/it's British quangocracy - these unelected and very powerful bodies have no redress, answer to no one and wield a disproportionate power, not even Dave can touch them [why would he want to - he's part of 'em], the EU runs them and thus, it runs us.
There is a glass ceiling in our society but it does not mean, small numbers of women achieving boardroom status - in EU-land they can do so easily by playing the equality game, ie, they're more equal than others - who's kidding who here? No, the glass ceiling is put between the people and our masters and betters.This is why we're moving towards totalitarianism, just like in Communist Russia, the Nomenklatura need to maintain the gap, keep the people in their lowly position and f**k democracy! Give people a choice!#!?? - WHAT?...ER NO....HO HO HO!!...... that is not in the plan.
