We don’t belong in the EU’s evil empire

A few weeks ago Gianluigi Nuzzi, an Italian journalist, published a book called Merchants in the Temple in which he explained that the Vatican isn’t the bastion of goodness people like to think. Instead, it is a place of corruption, greed and nastiness where you can buy a sainthood for £500,000. I imagine he’s had a pretty iffy time since.

Still, he isn’t the first to suffer unpleasant fallout for telling the truth about a hugely powerful and deeply arrogant institution: if he wants advice on how to handle the next ten or 20 years he could do worse than talk to Bernard Connolly. Twenty years ago, Connolly — at the time a senior economist with the European Union — published The Rotten Heart of Europe, a pretty devastating look at just how badly wrong he thought the introduction of monetary union was likely to go. It was immediately read by his colleagues and it wasn’t much liked. Within days he was barred from his office (with his picture posted at the entrances just in case he tried to sneak in), and then fired.

    Enoch Powell was crucified after his famous 1968 “Rivers of Blood” speech, where he warned of the consequences of uncontrolled immigration into Europe. It is increasingly looking like Powell is being vindicated.

    20 years ago, the EU was touted as the greatest thing since sliced bread, and any criticism or skepticism towards it would produce some very amazingly hostile reactions from its promoters. Now, the EU is in the same pot as the Soviet Union was in the late 1980s.

    However, unlike 1989, there will be no amping up of prosperity or hedonism as was seen in the 1990s. The Third Great War is going to be upon us before we know it, and the party that was going on in Western Europe in the 1990s and earlier 2000s will be over for a very long time…
