matters that their betters have already decided upon. They might not vote the way we want them to."
And- surprise!- this is from the Watermelons.
Showing how much she values direct democracy, Ms. Harms used the shock of the recent rejection of the EU-Ukrainian agreement by the Netherlands to make the case for limiting the use of referendums in future warning that they could “endanger the existence of the EU”, reports Austria’s largest newspaper Kronen Zeitung.
According to German newspaper Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger, the list of subjects which others have deemed “not suitable” for referendums include the controversial but yet-to-be-finalised Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) agreement with the U.S., the principle of open borders within the EU, and the future of the euro currency.
Nice people, aren't they? And showing their roots.
Even worse, the left wing German newspaper Junge Welt reports
that Ms. Harms claimed it is unacceptable for a mob of people to be
able to reject an agreement that was “supported by all governments of
Member States and their parliaments.”
The vote in the Netherlands has been seen as a sign of a general
EU-weariness. As such it is feared that the decision may set a precedent
and give British eurosceptics a valuable tailwind before the UK’s
In/Out referendum in June.
"We cannot allow the commoners to vote on matters their mas- er, better- the Right People have already decided upon! They'll wind up thinking they have some actual say in the EU and their own lives!"
