Yellow Vests Protest Merkel-Macron Plan To Integrate Defence, Foreign Policy

The left wing wankerati will not doubt be screaming about racism and xenophobia when they learn of the latest exploits of the Yellow vest movement. This time it is the German branch of the movement who were out in the streets protesting against the latest step Hausfrau – Volksfuhrer Merkel and The Boy Macron have taken towards politically  integrating Germany and France, a plot not mentioned by mainstream media but on which Original Boggart Blog and The Daily Stirrer have been following developments HERE, HEREHERE, and HERE, which they hope would create a strong enough axis to bully the other member states, one Britain is gone, into surrendering national sovereignty to the German – French dominated bloc.

But the people aren’t buying it. Arrogant, aloof and catastrophically out of touch with the people they lead, the globalists Merkel and Macron seem convinced that the only way to end the civil unrest that is dividing their nations is to offer the voters bigger doses of the policies that caused the problems. More mass immigration, more exporting jobs to cheap labour economies and more pandering to Islamic extremists in the name of “multiculturalism and diversity.”

In globalist circles that might be considered high intellect, but where I, most of my friends, and supporters of the Yellow vest live, it is called plain fucking stupid. Which is why German citizens wearing the iconic Yellow Vests that have become the symbol of the anti – establishment movement across Europe, protested against this move for which neither leader has a democratic mandate.

As the boy Macron and Hausfau – Volksfuher Merkel met to sign the treaty which aims to bring together the economic and defence policies of France and Germany in a prototype “Sovereign Europe”, German Yellow Vests supporters, joined by some who had travelled from France, protested outside.

Germany’s Angela Merkel and France’s Emmanuel Macron have negotiated an expansion of the 1963 French-German reconciliation Élysée treaty in Aachen, Germany, which they hope will pave the way for a Federal European superstate, and signed the deal on Tuesday.

The Treaty of AAchen proposes to integrate aspects of France and Germany, as the press statement euphemistically put it, including forging closer ties on economic, defence and foreign policy, merging public transport networks and utilities in border regions, creating a common economic area, and developing shared social and political fields, according to Euractiv.

The most controversial part of the treaty however, is the advancement of plans for defence, building on Merkel’s earlier pledges of for Macron’s ambition to create an EU army. So stupid is this proposal (do these two insaniacs have the faintest idea of how Poland, Hungary, Greece and other countries occupied by the Nazis in World War Two are going to react when asked to hand control of their armed forces to Germany and the cheese eating surrender monkey collaborators of France.

Dr Merkel told media on Tuesday: “We commit ourselves to forming a joint military culture, a common defence industry, a common line and common policy on arms exports. In so doing, we wish to give our contribution to the development of a new European army.

“This will only work if we coordinate at the same time our foreign policies.”

Its signing was meant to send a message to Eurosceptics that the two EU leaders would continue their efforts to further integrate not only the EU, but their own countries. It seems the message being picked up by voters is not the one she wanted them to hear.

Here is that message from a Eurosceptic’s point of view

EU leader Juncker Has Praised The ‘Sleeping Beauty’ Lisbon Treaty Which He Says Led To Joint European Union Army

The European Commission president Jean – Claude Drunkard has praised the federalisation – by – stealth deceptiveness of the Lisbon treaty for helping bring about the creation of a “European Defense Force,” in effect the EU Common Army.

The treaty was initially called the European Constitution and unequivocally laid out the path to creation of a European superstate by committing nations in the union to surrender their sovereignty and become provinces of a single political entity. This move towards becoming the European empire hitler had planned for Nazi Germany was resoundingly rejected by referenda in France and the Netherlands in 2005.before being repackaged as the Lisbon treaty. Ireland, the only EU nation whose constitution demanded a referendum on treaty changes later rejected the treaty but was told by the EU a refusal was not acceptable and they would have to vote again (and again if necessary,) until they accepted it.

Today, president Jean-Claude Junker admitted that the shady document was always intended a vehicle for the creation of institutions needed to move toward a European superstate just as the Maaastricht treaty had been about creating the single currency.

In a statement, he linked the treaty to the Permanent Structured Cooperation deal (PESCO), signed by 23 member states in November, agreeing to kick-start the EU army by committing to integrate armed forces, boost in common defence spending, and establish a joint headquarters.

He wrote “In June I said it was time to wake up the Sleeping Beauty of the Lisbon Treaty: permanent structured cooperation. Six months later, it is happening. I welcome the steps taken today by Member States to lay the foundations of a European Defence Union.

“Europe cannot and should not outsource our security and defence. The European Defence Fund that the European Commission proposed will complement these efforts and act as a further incentive for defence cooperation – including potential funding for some of the projects presented today.”

A European army will not worry anyone of course, Germany’s habitual losers are the most obese soldiers in the world, the French are cheese eating surrender monkeys, the Italians, specialists in retreating, Spain’s military was summed up by Wellington in the Peninsula War; “They have beautiful uniforms and march in formation well, but we would win this war more quickly were they fighting for napoleon rather than alongside us, Poland and Hungary are in the race to be second to quit and among those left you have Luxembourg, Malta, Latvia, Estonia, Cyprus, Finland and Denmark which together would be hard pressed to raise enough men for a Rugby Union team let alone an army.

When we complained about the Lisbon Treaty, the rest of the EU called us xenophobes. Whatever, we were right from day one. I read the Maastricht Treaty in 1992 (I was working for the EU and had the unsanitized version) and declared the EU to be my enemy. I warned people and they said “But the politicians know what’s best for the country.” and they believed their own narrative. The EU was our enemy then and it is now. I look forward to its utter demise and jail time for the drunk in charge.

Ms Bennett also said she wanted to take down immigration controls so that lots of people who have been trained in places like Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Nigeria to wreak havoc with AK47s and Improvised Explosive Device and bomb belts can come and live in Britain and help us deal with potential invasions from …. erm ….. people who wreaked havoc in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Nigeria with AK47s and Improvised explosive devices.

UK Must Work With Assad To Combat ISIS? Laugh, I Nearly Shat.

Richard Dannatt

About two years ago the left-wing Nazis and other want-war oddballs were screaming for our government and the rest of the EU to support calls to war from President Hopey – Changey, Nobel PEACE Prize Obama, who wanted to send in troops under the cover of air strikes to help the brave, democracy loving, human organ noshing freedom fighters overthrow the brutal tyrant Assad.

I came in for some criticism for suggesting we should stay out of Syria and all other local conflicts in the middle east and that while tyrants like Assad, Saddam and Gadaffi were authoritarian and oppressive at least they maintained a kind of order compared to what would replace them.
About a year ago, frustrated by Assad’s refusal to crumble and angered by the resistance of russia, China and Iran in resisting the planned American hegemony, Obama tried again. A poisoned gas attack for which the USA was too quick to blame forces loyal to Assad was proved to be a false flag incident, the gas having been fired by members of the terrorist rabble the USA had stitched together with funding and free weapons to fight Obama’s proxy war in the middle east

Again the ‘liberal’ want – war brigade tried to deny the mountain of evidence pointing to American efforts to manipulate events and provoke a regional war. And then things went quiet for a while. In the lull, the terrorist rabble, armed with American weapons supplied via internediaries like Turkey and Qatar, trained by American military advisers and funded by American and Saudi Arabian money formed ISIL / ISIS / Islamic state and set about re – establishing the medieval Islamic Caliphate complete with public floggings and beheadings, women being treated as their father’s or husband’s property and theocratic governments to enforce Sharia Law. And that’s what our ‘dark-skin-good-pale-skin-bad’ progressive liberals call as result is it? One delusional idiot who thinks he can impress us by waving his academic qualifications in our faces commented in the usual sneering tone of someone with the kind of absofuckinglute certainty of his superiority that can only come from having less brain cells than testicles, commented, “You can’t call what existed under those tyrants order.”

Can’t I? A recent poll showed 70% of Libyans think life was better under Assad. Over 50% of Syrians supported Assad all through the civil war (if they hadn’t he would not still be in power. We are witnessing in every television news bulletin the folly of overthrowing Saddam but lacking the commitment to leave an occupying army in his place.

And now this:
Britain must talk to dictator Assad to defeat ISIL (aki ISIS aka Islamic State), says General Lord Dannatt, former head of British Army

Britain must co-operate with President Assad, the Syrian dictator, in order to confront Isil, the former head of the Army has said. General Lord Dannatt, the former Chief of General Staff, said the West must secure the permission of the Syrian government in order to launch airstrikes on Islamist militants.

The remarks came as US General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said strikes inside Syria are necessary to defeat the organisation.

General Lord Dannatt’s comments come almost a year since David Cameron lost a Commons vote authorising air strikes on President Assad in response to chemical weapons attacks on civilians – action that would likely have toppled him from power.

Britain and its allies have repeatedly called for Assad to step down to bring the three-year civil war that spawned Isil to an end.

“The Syrian dimension has got to be addressed. You cannot deal with half a problem,” he said. Isil must be “opposed, confronted and defeated” in Iraq and Syria before it spreads through the region, Lord Dannatt told BBC Radio 4.

I don’t know what is is about the left wing mindset that produces such an immutable inability to learn from past mistakes but just as socialist governments always a) screw up the economy of the country they govern and b) drift towards fascism and coercive law enforcement, so they are unable to understand from numerous failures that many nations around the world are just not ready for minority friendly, immigration obessed, nanny state pseudo-democracy. What makes their stupidity worse of course it when the social democratic model they try to impose fails they always attempt to prop it up by dropping bombs. I wonder if by now my critics will have learned enough common sense to STF up and see how things play out. And I will look forward to a grovelling apology from one academic clown. He needn’t think that any comment other than a grovelling apology will stay in the thread for long.

Political Correctness Gone Military

Bored with the election? We are. In an election that is more Presidential than ever before with the cranks and nutters pushed aside as attention focuses on the party leaders we are being asked to get enthusiastic about three guys who between them have less charisma then leprosy.

So we look past politics to something else today and if we were the Daily Mail or Daily Express we would be running this story under a Political Correctness gone mad headline. If we were The Guardian on the other hand we would be screaming about a milestone in the advance of women’s rights. As it is we are Boggart Blog so we will lead with the banner headline:

WANT TO KNOW HOW FUCKING FUCKED EVERYTHING REALLY ARE?

Yes, officialdom has set a new world record in stupidity. Later today a tribunral will meet to decide how much compensation a young female soldier and single mother will get because she was discriminated against sexually and racially. Experts estimate the award could be in the region of £100,000 which is about What the people wounded in Afghanistan get for losing a leg. But hey, what’s a leg compared to somebody’s feelings.

tHE WOMAN’S complaint arose fromn her being dsciplined for not appearing on parade while on active service. Now in the army failing to turn up on parade is really serious, not quite as bad as bad as shooting your commanding office and of course nowhere near as bad as shooting an ememy who might be threatening to wipe out your entire platoon but who happens to have dark skin, but very very bad. It is all about instilling the discipline needed in combat situation where soldiers need to be totally committed members of the unit because everybody’s life depends on it.

Being on parade is about being where you should be when you should be there and ready to do your job.

Can you imagine out in Afghanistan a British officer (named Rupert or Jeremy – they all are) walking towards enemy lines carrying a flag of truce to ask the Taliban commander, “I say old chap, I know its a monstrous imposition but do you mind awfully delaying your attack for an hour, Lance Corporal Sillytits hasn’t finished bathing the baby.

There Was Spam, Spam

A song schoolboys of my generation used to sing , The Quartermaster’s Store was learned from our Dads who had sung it as soldiers during World War 2. It had innumerable verses, all simple and easily remembered couplets. My favourite went:

There were fleas, fleas,
with kilts and hairy knees,
In the store, in the store.
There were fleas, fleas,
with kilts and hairy knees,
In the Quartermaster’s store.

CLICK HERE and scroll to 2nd song down for Shurdington Scouts version which is somewhat less scatological than the one I remember.

This silly song was brought to mind when we heard read of an army unit in Afghanistan that had had nothing but SPAM in the Quartermasters Store for several weeks after Taliban attacks on the supply routes stopped vital supplies getting through.

There was SPAM, SPAM,no beef or strawberry jam…

But an army marches on its stomach as Napoleon is reputed to have said and he’d know, the podgy little bastard. The SPAM diet is perhps not the best preparation for those who must go out and fight The Taliban.

Army chefs are among the best in the world however and the unit’s chief cook, Corporal Liam Francis did wonders with his limited resources. He served SPAM curry, SPAM casserole, Sweet and Sour SPAM, SPAM Carbonara, stir – fry SPAM in hoi – sin sauce with noodles, SPAM Stroganoff, even SPAM and Mushroom pie. Liam also told a Boggart Blog reporter he had offered to let the unit’s only female officer sample his SPAM in cider but she didn’t fancy it.

aLL TOGETHER NOW……

SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM
SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM

We hear fresh supplies have reached the camp now, much to the relief of the local Taliban squad who having admitted blowing up the food convoy found they were having the crap kicked out of them by soldiers denied a steak.

Cameron, Clegg and Lumley

I know they sound like a legal practice in Barnoldswick but Conservative leaders David Cameron, the Liberal Democrats Nick “Shagger” Clegg and Joanna (Patsy from Absolutely Fabulous) Lumley, still looking absolutely fabulous at sixty something, have been collaboration to embarrass Gordon Brown.

Shifty Gordon had tried to shaft the Gurkas, those Nepalese regiments that for historic reasons are part of the British Army. The Gurkas have been asking quite politely for the right to settle in Britain after serving the nation for twenty years in some of the worlds most violent and dangerous places. Not an unreasonable expectation you might think, there are not that many of them and they do put their arses on the line in our cause.

Well Gordon had promise them allsorts to shut them up because he didn’t want a fuss at the G20 what with Barack Obama doing his politically correct messiah schtick and all. When it came to deliver however Gordon and his gang tried to work a flanker and divert some of the cash that should have been going to fund Gurka retirement packages towards underwriting the clock in and clear off allowance for Labour MPs who live too close to London to qualify for second home expenses or who do not have a sister with a spare bedroom living in the capital.

It was a nasty, small minded, mean spirited trick typical of “The Peoples’ Party. They would have got away with it too but for that pesky actress. Joanna Lumley when not swigging Bollinger as Patsy has been an advocate of the Gurkas cause for years. And a formidable advocate she turned out to be too.

First Ms Lumley persuaded the Lib Dems to take up the case and then when the Liberals had routed Labour in debate and with enough Labour MPs promising to oppose Brown’s bill or abstain the chance of defeating Labour in a commons vote saw Conservatives offering their support too. The vote was duly won, Gordon Brown was embarrassed, Labour were dismayed and Cameron Clegg and Lumley were filmed skipping over Westminster Bridge as if it was The Yellow Brick Road.

Clearly Cameron was just jumping on the Lib Dems bandwagon but what matter. Shagger Clegg had probably only supported the cause in the hope of jumping on Joanna Lumley. But what matter, they got a result. The Gurkas will be much more welcome than another batch of Kosovar sex slave traffickers.

The Counter Insurgency Sleeps With The Fishes

This week the British Army in Iraq will hand over it’s main base to the Americans. This is the beginning of The Long Goodbye for our half of “the coalition of the willing.” Soon there will only be a skeleton force left behind our Ministry of Defence source told us.

When they say a skeleton force we hope they are not referring to the soldiers who died in Iraq. Such bad taste should be left to satirical bloggers.

To commemorate the occasion of the British withdrawal while Iraq is still in chaos, we heard on the news the Iraqi government presented the senior British officer Major General Andy Salmon with a fish. (Cue theme from The Godfather.) Now it could be that Iraq’s leaders share the perverse sense of humour of your Boggart Bloggers and are just using the General’s name to make a cheap joke or it could be a Godfather – like was of saying “We have kicked your pathetic occupation force back into the Persian Gulf.

With typical political double speak the commander read a statement prepared for him by the ministry which praised the british troops for having carried out a successful mission which will leave Iraq a better nation that when it was occupied.

At a key oil installation not far away a bomb killed three Iraqi police officers and three civilians.

’nuff said.
