EUROPEAN UNION LOVES REGULATIONS

If you read the header remarks of the Blog you will notice an additional sentence regarding the EU and its beloved Regulations.  Recently though with the pending departure of the British there have been rumblings of discontent from several other Member States.  Sitting in Brussels are vast numbers of petty bureaucrats writing, at great expense, these Regulations which range through all facades of the society.  They cover such things as maritime interests, fishing rights, crop planting, selling your products and yes the design and size of a British teapot.  Good lord is it any wonder that the British populace voted to leave the EU - that sacred and revered object was actually examined, critisised and regulations drafted covering its size, design and usage. 

That's it OUT - we are NOT amused !!

Now one receives a lengthy notice from the European Union via Google that we blog writers must inform y'all that there are regulations covering blog writing for cookies, spam and other internet goodies.  One can imagine a Brussels bureaucrat proudly going home by bicycle, being concerned about global warming, having drafted the British teapot regulation.  Dodging around large numbers of refugees and of course avoiding those sections of the City reserved for those who detest the people who have allowed them to cross into their country via its open borders to live in Brussels.

Is this really the way to live just pretending everything is good and if there is a difficulty just write a regulation, don't face the reality just relax with the latest comfort medication because that too is legal now ?

Sadly we have been through all this before in the days of the Weimar Republic with its rampant, relaxed, depraved, lifestyle and lack of social responsibility which in turn led to violent reaction, reversal and the rise of the Fascist States leading to millions of dead during World War 2 and indeed since.

Perhaps the first steps against this unwise lifestyle have taken place with British departure from EU and the election in America of a President-elect who is putting together an administration that is prepared to take action to direct a change, painful as it might be in some cases, that will lead to an overall better approach to living our lives. 

One hopes so for the sake of yours and my children and grandchildren.

Good Watch
