Amsterdam Gridlocked Again As Dutch Farmers Protest EU Green Laws

The protests against EU globalism and the unofficial appointment of Swedish baby troll Greta Thunberg as head of European environment policy continue to grow and become more disruptive. Last weeken it was France that bore the brunt of citizens anger, today it was Amsterdam and The Netherlands.

In a protest similar to previous ones in Germany and Netherlands, Amsterdam was gridlocked with throusands of farm tractors being driven slowly to disrupt traffic flow in the Dutch capital in a zero-notice strike following the Dutch government voting to pass new, highly unpopular green legislation that will damage the already struggling agricultural and construction sectors.

While the protest was peaceful and good humoured, with Dutch Newspaper De Telegraaf reporting that farmers gave out hot coffee to the police officers on duty in the cold weather, armoured vehicles manned by the Dutch government’s military police were seen deployed at likely flashpoints as the tractors got closer to the parliament buildings. Protests in France against green laws that will be ruinous for farmers and transport businesses have frequenntly become violent.

The protest clearly took the police by surprise, and its planning took place in secret, with organisers reportedly referring to it as a “surprise attack” on Amsterdam.

The “surprise attack” came in response to the government passing an EU law enforcing with draconian penalties strict limits on nitrogen emissions, with similar laws being passed by the democratically elected governments of all European Union member states in response to the diktats of unelected bureaucrats in Brussels on green policies. Farmer’s groups dispute the way emissions are measured and claim their work is not as damaging as governments claim, and regardless, as their protest banners state without farming there can be no food.
The smooth – face pen pushers in their luxurious offices haven’t thought that one through have they?

Particularly supportive of the farmers case is Anti – EU politician Geert Wilders, who while notorious for his opposition to the Islamification of the Netherlands and Europe, is a populist and stands with voters against the European Union. He called the farmers “heroes” Wednesday and said he supported them against the anti-nitrogen “frenzy” that would destroy their livelihoods.

As the government of Poland has today stated its desire to leave the EU it can only be a matter od time before this cultural Marxist attempt to merge the free and democratic member states into a Soviet style federation crumbles.

EU’s Top Eurofederalist admits EU wants an empire

Leader of the left-progressive group in the European Parliament Guy Verhofstadt (a.k.a. Verhofshit
) has said that in order to compete with the rest of the world, the European Union must become an “empire.”

Verhofshit, the Phlegm who would be Emperor of Europe

The leader of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats in Europe (ALDE) told CNN that plans to reform the EU and devolve power from Brussels back to the nation-state proposed by the populist paries that have spring up in member states, and led by Matteo Salvin’s Lega (League) in Italy, Marine le Pen and her Rassemblement National in France and Hungary’s Victor Orban, leader of the Fidesz party would mean that the bloc “will die inside.”

“The world is developing into one not of nation states, but of empires. China is an empire. India is an empire. The US is an empire. We need to create a European Union that is capable of defending our interests,” Mr Verhofstadt said told an interviewer from the far – left American news company who spoke to the Eurocrat his luxurious Brussels office.

Mr Verhofstadt, who is also the European Parliament’s Brexit Coordinator, is an avid supporter of greater federalisation of the European Union. The populist movements, including Alernative for Germany (AfD) and The Sweden Democrats, both of which are making big waves in their domestic electoral systems are also among the parties expected to make big gaines in elections to the toothless European Parliament being held this week. UKIP, the party which led the ‘Brexit’ referendum campaign in the UK are not expected to figure significantly after fragmenting following theior success. A completle new group, The Brexit Party look like topping the polls in the UK where elections have to be held after the Conservative government completely botched the leaving process and failed to take the country out of the UK on 29 March.

Though the populist parties have routinely been labelled neo – fascist, xenophobic and racist by Eurocrats left wing politicians and mainstream media, they are none of those, in fact in casmanyes their policies, except on uncontrolled immigration and surrender of national sovereigny to an unelected committee of bureaucrats in Belgium, are more socialist than shose of mainstream socialist parties.

During a Euronews Raw Politics discussion last week, the former Belgian prime minister compared a proposed United States of Europe to the United States of America, saying: “The United States of Europe is a way to organise a common action on the European level by recognising, by guaranteeing the autonomy of the member states.”

He was talking though his arse of course, none of those are Empires but he is not alone, other Eurocrats have also voiced support for a United States of Europe, including former president of the European Parliament and German socialist politician Martin Schulz who called for its formation by 2025. There have even ben discussions about extending the European Union beyond Europe’s geographical borders. Such grandiose schemes are more reminiscent of the Nazi and Fascist dictatorships and Communist politbureaus of the twentieth century than a, supposedly democratic, free trade organisation.

EU HoldsBack New Regulation For Fear Of Strengthening Brexit Case

unnamed-8

The unelected leaders of the EU in Brussels are smothering discussion of new pan – European laws that would impact the United Kingdom and all other member states, increasing the amount of money they have to contribute to the EU budget and transferring yet more sovereignty to Brussels. The Bureaucratic Dictators fear fear that if details of their ‘power grab’ plans become public knowledge it will influence the British referendum on membership of the European Union.

In an article for Politico.eu, Brussels correspondent Tara Palmeri details how post-Brexit, there may well be a deluge of onerous legislation dumped on EU member states, fuelling fears of a “Brussels Time Bomb”, an extension of bureaucratic control over supposedly sovereign nations that would lead to more ‘out’ votes and the break up of the Union.

Officials are reportedly saying in private that key EU initiatives which may be “controversial” have been shelved to assist Prime Minister David Cameron’s campaign to keep Britain in the European Union. The legislation will include a €20bn increase in the EU’s budget (which we have known about for some time), new rules on the freedom of movement that will deny member states any control over their borders, and will impose the supremacy  of the European Convention on Human Rights – a deeply unpopular, sovereignty-stripping treaty.

“There’s a kind of a deflection of attention to some issues,” Mercedes Bresso, an Italian MEP from the Socialists and Democrats group said. She added the referendum was causing a “delay in some debates,” admitting: “Now is not the moment to create more problems.”

“These proposals can be discussed after June without creating too many difficulties,” a French official said, adding: “In fact, it would be more problematic if we had to negotiate under the pressure of the U.K.. So, in a way, it protects the other member states as well.”

“Everyone knows this is not a good time because of the problems with the U.K.,” said Pedro López de Pablo, spokesman for the European People’s Party group in the Parliament. “The Commission has been very cautious on all of these things. Nowadays we’re in a public opinion environment that everyone attacks the European Union.”It is not just in Britain where Brussels bureaucrats’ mission is in trouble of course. Public opinion in France, Austria, The Netherlands, Italy and several smaller nations has swung against the EU in recent years and even in Germany, the wanna be European hegemon (surprise!) the public are becoming very lukewarm of the European integration project.

What is possibly the most revealing comment about Brussels EU power grab ambitions came from Polish MEP Jan Olbrycht who is also a member of the EU’s budgets committee. He said: “They don’t want to open the Pandora’s box before the referendum”.

The Wisdom Of Voters, The Blindness Of The Establishment

1-ukip
UKIP victory?

The results of elections to the European Parliament, announced in Britain and several other European nations last night last night and gradually unfolding around the rest of Europe today are being declared ‘a political earthquake’ by politicians and mainstream media alike. Given the propensity of those two groups for hyperbole, let’s put those results in perspective.

Yes there was a shift in the political balance, not to ‘the far right’ (the far right is extreme authoritarianism, among parties that did well, UKIP, the Danish DPP and German’s Alternatif fur Deutscheland can only be described as libertarian, the opposite of authoritarian. France’s Front National are a different kettle of fish, under the previous leader they were definitely racist and white supremacist. How much current leader Marine le Pen has changed the soul of the party we will soon learn, she has certainly toned down the rhetoric however.

A common response from both the political rent-a-gob contingent and the media chatterati has been something like this:

This was an anti-politics rebellion: electorates across Europe were engaging in a massive rejection of present-day political reality.

Ermmm – WRONG! They were not rejecting politics in fact a higher than usual number turned out to vote which showed people were engaging more with politics. And there was not ‘a swing to the far right’ either. What happened was voters used the only means available to them, the deeply flawed and ineffectual European electoral system democratic process to deliver a massive thumbs down to the high handed and authoritarian attitudes of the ruling political class.

One of the most fundamental ways in which that (self styled) elite (and the Pensées Uniques who blindloy follow them) have alienated voters is in assuming we cannot think for ourselves. “It is right and proper that we transfer wealth from prosperous nations to poor nations,” they tell us, or “mass immigration is good for the economy”.

We, like good little humandroids, are all supposed to unquestioningly agree with our superiors and not think “hang on, before we go transferring wealth to poor nations there are a lot of problems at home that need sorting out, new hospitals for example, or better flood defences”, while the idea that immigration is good for the economy is so idiotic it could only be believed by the kind of innumerate idiots who have PhD (phenomenally Dumb) degrees in economics and therefore think GDP is a credible way of measuring the health of the national economy.

The vote was in reality a massive pro-democracy gesture: a rebellion against centralisation of power and the creation of an oligarchic European federal state. It was also a protest against the EU’s ruling bureaucrats who quite deliberately disregard the voices of the general population and make it plain they regard people outside the bureaucratic club, especially those who question their decision and motives as beneath contempt.

The electorates proclaimed that they will no longer accept the doctrine of a benign and paternalistic bureaucratic dictatorship, which the EU Commission quite brazenly pretends to be – replacing elected governments whenever it sees fit and over-ruling national governments and democratic votes when it finds them insufficiently “on message”.

You Need A Degree In Stupid To Work In The Public Sector

official-insanity

Above is a picture of the house Clare Lally and her wheelchair bound disabled daughter occupied courtesy of her local council. Leave aside the PhD in Stupid required for any public services administrator to off a house in such a location, with three flights of stairs from street level to the front door, to a disabled person, there may be mitigating circumstances, such as the bureaucrat having had their brain removed in order to be admitted to the UNITE union.

Once the bureaucrats had accepted Clare had a genuine need the council sprang into action and did what public service administrators excel at – they went from moronic to downright idiotic and built a 10-level ‘slalom’ wheelchair ramp from the street up to the house at a cost of £40,000.

The winding 60-metre path is like a marathon obstacle race for Clare every time she takes bulbar palsy sufferer Katie out.

official-insanity2
Clare and Katy’s house with the ramp.

Clare told the media: “There must have been a better solution. The council could have gone about the whole project in a more sensible way.”

As if making life physically hard for Clare was not bad enough, the council have made the single Mum a target for the anti social behaviour of wanks on Planks skateboarders. The multi level ramp outside Clare and Katie’s home has proved to be like catnip for a ginger Tom to them.

The council are now being as obstructive as only public service union members can be. “More than my job’s worth to fit a gate with a secure lock at the bottom” said housing department spokesperson Jock MacTwat, “The skateboard wheelchair ramp is the only option, it’s building regulations see”.

“We weren’t fighting for a skateboard park – we just wanted to improve Katie’s quality of life.” said Clare. “What they have built is something which I would never have expected a local council to do. We have to open our blinds and look at it every day.”

West Dunbartonshire Council leader Cllr. Angus Atory said, “We offered this family a penthouse flat in a tower block with wonderful views across the Clyde but Clare refused it because the lifts have not worked over a year. Such ingratitude is quite frankly unacceptable. Does she not understand our priority is finding good quality housing for rent asylum seekers from Africa, Asia and East Europe and then we have a request for $10 billion from the organisers of Clydebank and Dumbarton Gay Pride festival. These are the really important items on our budget.

Having acknowledged Clare and Katie feel intimidated by nuisance skateboarders, council officials have refused to install a lockable gate to the ramp, citing health and safety concerns. ‘More than my job’s worth to approve a gate on the ramp,” said Jock McTwat “It would have to open outwards and so block the public footpath.”

Every other house on the road has a gate that swings outwards. Boggart Blog asks are the local council officers up for an award for most stupid, obstructive public servants or is such stupidity their normal state.

The Ultimate Fat Fascism

We have taken arms against an endless sea of bureaucratic idiocy many times on this blog, particularly against the food fascists who want to ban things like fat, salt and sugar from our diets.

But even your crusading Boggart Blog reporters are happy to sit back and enjoy the latest example of politically correct fascism. Because it only affects the Japanese.

Probably the most insane law to be enacted in a developed nation, trumping even Malawi’s ban on farting, decrees it is illegal to be fat in Japan. Although their country already has one of the world’s lowest obesity rates (less than 5 per cent, in contrast to the USA’s 35 per cent), that didn’t stop Japanese lawmakers from setting a maximum waistline size. Every man aged 40 and over must not have a waist measuring 80cm or above, every woman, 90cm or above.

This is going to completely fuck the sumo wrestling business.

Give a child a break, kill a bureaucrat #1

We are always on the ball in reporting the bureaucratic bullshit that passes for an education system but the latest one has even the hardened journalists of Boggart Blog reeling at the scale of its incomprehensibility.

Any reasonably well educated person can guess what a Private Finance partner is, even an Academy Sponsor is self explanatory, its some fat cat who promises that at an unspecified time in the future when he needs to avoid paying some tax, will advance a small sum in exchange for copping sine die a share of the notional profit the school makes by cutting services to the bone and trousering leftover taxpayers cash .

That is all quite clear.

But what the efffing hell is a School Improvement Partner ?
