EU Socialist Crap is Beginning!

"Today, the EU Council decided that 2011 will be designated the "European Year of Volunteering". The organisation of the Year had been proposed by the European Commission and received a positive opinion by the European Parliament.

Welcoming the Council's decision, Mr Maroš Šefčovič, the Commissioner for Education, Training, Culture and Youth, said: ''Volunteering is a way for individuals to make a valuable contribution to society. At the EU level, volunteering promotes civic participation, social cohesion and provides learning opportunities for the volunteers as well as a multitude of benefits for society at large. I am pleased that our idea to have a European Year dedicated to promoting volunteering activities received such solid support from the European Parliament and the Council of Ministers."

And how much is this costing us?

The European Year of Voluntary Activities Promoting Active Citizenship is widely supported by civil society and the European Parliament and is envisaged as a bottom-up campaign, in which civil society will play a large role.

The European Parliament has approved EU funding for the Year, as follows: € 3 million for preparatory actions in 2010, and € 8 million during the Year itself.

€ 11 for advertising and a goodly layer of jobsworth civil service jobs.. all to get some free labour from the slaves? FFS

I don't even want to discuss Michel Barnier and the slow death of the financial centre of London!

Quote nicked form David Vance "Let me tell you something. The EU is way beyond ANY prospect of reform. It is a corrupt anti-democratic malignancy that is reducing Nation States to parochail sub-offices. The unelected Eurocrats, like Ashton, personify just how grotesque it all is. We should get OUT of it".

  2. Echoing TFE I am sure the majority of us in the UK would willingly volunteer to provide lamp posts and hemp for the use of - but only after we have tried it out with our own venal politicians!

  6. I agree, it's so badly constructed it can't last but the damage it can do as it falls apart doesn't bear thinking about.

  8. Advertising and PR budget goes out to the media who is rewarded financially for turning a blind eye and reporting lies 365 days out of the year to support EU and report their propaganda. Some goes out to administration so the quangos have their jobs, are enabled to leech and continue supporting the EU. The MPs and Parliament get their share. Then comes the little folk in the street, whom after paying for this extravaganza through enforced unrepresentative taxation are then required through all the social manipulations and propaganda done by the quangos and media to spin cartwheels and jump through the hoops in order to avoid being called politically incorrect and thus subject to suspiscion for not joining in the rally round and showing full support.

    It's a society built on nothing, producing nothing, advancing nowhere, standing perfectly still and playing a game of enslavement to the EU.

    Ancient Rome or the Egyptian Pharaohs would have been much the same government, I am certain.

    And in the future, it seems the Final Tribulation having Satan forcing everyone to say "aye" to the Devil, take a microchip implant or else be subject to beheading sounds like much the direction it would lead us to in the long run.

  9. Aye. Farms and factorys in the Soviet Union and China could/can not operate without the "volunteers" that go every harvest from schools and universitys to work the fields.

    How long will it be until, as in the Soviet Union and China, the K.G.B, or equivalent, come knocking on the doors of those that don't "volunteer? Just to ask "why?", of course. And how long before it becomes an essential part on your C.V?

  10. Well, they're sh*t out of luck if they come knocking on my door! I currently DO volunteer - both as a volunteer Skills for Life tutor (for those who have been blessed with a labour 'educashion' & now want to learn how to read, write & do numbers) & as a visitor to the elderly housebound - I currently visit 3 old ladies. However, all that will come to a grinding halt as far as I'm concerned when ISA (IAS) steps in (the new quango that all teachers, persons involved with vulnerable people have to register with). Not because I've a shady past but because I'm f***** if I'll register for yet another govt database - one that will, apparently not merely hold facts but also rumour & gossip.

  11. It really is a step away from slavery. They'll end up convincing the peasants that its their duty to the new federalist "progressive" (how I hate that word now) EU.

  12. Year of volunteering - oh my goodness. Yes, I volunteer to help us out of the EU.

  13. Now ask yourselves exactly WHY did they bann gun ownership in the U.K?

  14. That'll be the reason why Labour have just decided to compulsorally volunteer all 16-18 year-olds to do 50 hours voluntary "work in the community" which means that each and every one of them will have to submit themselves to vetting by the Independent Safeguarding Authority Rumour And Gossip datatbase ( does not say what will happen to those who 'fail')
