Europe: Our "Domestic" Market

Our 'domestic' market

Fanatical europhile Pete "Teflon" Mandelson has admitted Europe is our 'domestic' market. During what can only be regarded as an extraordinarily rude and thinly-veiled attack on the USA's plans for regulating its own banking system, he revealed this peculiar - some might say unique - weltanschauung, presumably, by extension, believing that the United Kingdom is now no more than some kind of local trading area, rather than a sovereign nation.

Of course, we all know what he's up to: softening-us up for entry into the eurozone without a referendum while simulatenously trying to reboot the "only Gordon can save you" routine. Pull the other one, it's got Russian billionaire-paymaster yachts on it. "Dishonest" is simply far too weak a word to describe the depths of this hideous individual's machinations. Here's an example:

Asked specifically about critics of the single currency who argue that by retaining sterling, Britain had been sheltered from the worst of the market backlash against high public deficits, Lord Mandelson said: "That's true.

"But it doesn't necessarily mean that being out of the eurozone will always play to Britain's advantage

"The truth is that Britain depends on a vibrant, growing European economy, this is our domestic market. The one on our doorstep, we don't want it to fail. It will have a better chance of succeeding the more Britain is able to influence its policies.

Europe's become our "domestic market" eh? (tell that to the French and Germans!). And a virtual admission that we're heading for the eurozone, eh? Over my dead body.

Anyway, you can read the rest of the article here.

If anybody else is tempted to vote for these traitors, liars and thieves again, I will be amazed. That 30% of people still, apparently, are planning to, is amazing.


  1. The European Union is vital for the future of British commerce, and for protecting our economy from uncompetitive undercutting economies of scal across the underdeveloped regions of the planet.

    From the common tarrif walls, to the eurozone the EU shall continue to provide ever greater protection to the member-states. It is farsical to say "believing that the United Kingdom is now no more than some kind of local trading area, rather than a sovereign nation."...I mean OF COURSE IT IS THAT IS GLOBALISATION AND TRANSNATIONALISATION OF BUSINESS FOR YOU!!

    The UK would still be a trading outpost, a conveyor belt for globalised international capitalism even more so than now outside of the EU.

    It is unpatriotic to criticise our common European destiny.

  2. Nonsense, from start to finish. Ignorant, wrongheaded, pretty dishonest and unworthy. Thank God you're in the minority. Stop behaving like some useful idiot for the NWO, EU Trots and start putting a value on the British subjects to choose their own destiny. Oh, two other bits of advice: don't ever SHOUT and don't rely on meaningless jargon to make your point. It doesn't work.

    Unless your comment was meant to be a joking, of course. In which case, how jolly funny.

  3. Did you pick up on this item, released under the 30 year rule?

    The then Labour government in the 1970s deemed the Scottish Fishing Industry as "expendible" in the intrests of European integration.

  4. No, but thanks Robert. All proof of the scale of the Heathite stitch up in those early days is most welcome. If Brown's government was the worst ever inflicted upon us, Heath's comes a close second. There are similarities between the two men's characters, as well. "Secretive" for instance, and "full of a sense of their own self-importance" would be another one. I'm sure people can think of many others.

  5. The 30 per cent. to whom you refer are of course New Labour's clients.

    What is distressing is the Dave et al have not done all that much to show there are positive reasons for voting Conservative. (Recall the 1987 election when Margaret did a series of television interviews pounding the message home that there was a purpose in a fresh term because of all the things that still needed to be done. It made a difference!)

    As for Europe, globalisation is a much rarer phenomenon than is commonly supposed. Rather, the world operates typically within the major trading blocs and but few industries or companies are truly global. The UK's trading bloc is the EU so Mandelson's words are fair comment surely?

    It is partly for that reason - the rest of the EU being our major trading partner - that post any withdrawl, we will still have to comply with much of its regulatory framework but then, of course, we would not have the same influence to try to shape it.

  6. Card (may I call you Card?): All true.

  7. (Apart from your fourth para (and some of the third), which doesn't quite folla.

    We can - and should - as a massively important sovereign nation, do what we like. And then some. The "EU" be damned).

    Vote Conservative, nonetheless.


Any thoughts?
