The Irony of Surrender

Having surrendered our foreign policy-making powers, AKA sovereignty, to the European Union, a process that is all but complete once the Czech’s are bullied into submission and The Lisbon treaty comes into force, the little “boy wonder” David Milliband goes for the obvious next stage, whining that, in the corridors of Brussels, we should endeavour "to take a lead in developing a strong European foreign policy", thus confirming our vassal status of a New (treaty of Rome) Roman Empire i.e. the EU. See the link below.


For those lacking any understanding of history, which seems to include most of the Westminster bubble, a nation which no longer commands its own foreign policy is no longer an independent state.

Now I come to the benefits of a grammar school education, which taught me to read, gave me a decent vocabulary, to explore, to think, be principled and make my own mind up about things. So, I find it very interesting and quite ironic that, it was precisely that issue, “independence” which led to the Third Anglo Afghan War in 1919. Britain back then had insisted on taking control of Afghanistan's foreign policy, which led to a month long war, which led to the Rawalpindi Agreement on 19 August 1919 when control was finally re-established, and the Afghans regained control over their foreign policy, a date co-incidentally from which Afghanistan celebrates its independence. I’d urge you to read the link below from a gem of a site called afghanland.


We are shortly going to be in the absurd position of fighting for the security and independence of the state of Afghanistan, from the position of being a vassal state or province of the New Roman European Empire (aka EU) – our presence legitimised, if you can call it that, only by it being a "legacy" policy on which we embarked before the steel jaws of the Lisbon treaty snapped shut.

To the “boy wonder” Milliband, however, this is a Good Thing. Speaking at the International Institute for Strategic Studies in London on Monday, his idea of upholding British national interest is for the Empire to develop a strong foreign policy, warning that the UK would lose out internationally if it tried to oppose this process (not that we can unless we elect a party committed to taking us out of the EU) on the grounds of "hubris, nostalgia or xenophobia".

"The choice for Europe is simple, get our act together and make the European Union a leader on the world stage or become spectators in a G2 world shaped by the United States and China," the sage thus prophesies. And so it is that we "celebrate" our loss of independence, almost exactly 90 years after it was returned to a country for which our troops are now futilely fighting and dying.

In the fullness of time, one wonders whether – when we have regained our independence from the EU – Afghanistan will be in a position to return the "favour" and send troops to the UK to help us beat off European jihadists, channeling international aid to us so that we can rebuild our churches, our schools, our historic institutions and traditional rights and freedoms destroyed after decades of neglect and willful spite.
