The last twitchings of a dead horse

The elections organized by the “Brussels EU” in June 2009 were nothing short of a Waterloo for its architects.

Almost 60 percent of the people of Europe who were eligible to vote protested against the EU construct by deliberately abstaining.

In addition, a further 4 percent of the eligible electorate cast deliberate votes against the EU dictatorship by voting for parties that are anti-EU and/or opposed to the Lisbon Treaty.

EU Election 2009 Results

And yet, despite its impressive magnitude, this overwhelming No-vote against the “Brussels EU” has essentially been ignored by its leaders.

Moreover - and despite the obvious lack of any democratic legitimacy - Barroso, Merkel, Sarkozy and the other members of the EU junta are celebrating themselves as the legitimate rulers over Europe.

However, as a result of these elections, it is abundantly clear that the “Brussels EU” has now lost its second essential leg for the democratic future of the European continent.

The first leg, of course - the moral basis - was never there anyway. The documents that point to the dark history of the Nazi regime as the cradle of the undemocratic structure of the “Brussels EU” bear sobering testimony to this fact.

On 8 June, 2009, however, the “Brussels EU” that had been falsely parading in front of 500 million people as a stallion was finally revealed as a lame donkey.

The sobering facts

Voter turnout has now fallen consistently in every EU election since the first one in 1979.

Participation in the 2009 elections slumped to 43 percent - the lowest level since European elections began – as 213 million out of 375 million voters registered their feelings about the “Brussels EU” by staying at home.

However, it turns out that even the figure of 43 percent is artificially inflated. In some countries, for example, such as Belgium, Cyprus, Greece and Luxembourg, voting is compulsory. Nevertheless, even in these countries, significant numbers of people still chose not to vote. In both Belgium and Luxembourg the turnout was around 90 percent. In Cyprus, however, only 59 percent turned out to vote, whilst in Greece less than 53 percent of people chose to vote.

Clearly, therefore, the EU’s elections in 2009 will go down in history as the definitive moment at which the majority of its citizens signalled that they no longer support it.
