The institutions of the European Union are usurping more and more power that no one ever gave them and for which they are accountable to no one exclaimed, Flemish Member of Parliament for the Vlaams Belang party, Tom Vandendriessche.
“The European Commission was originally set up as a college of officials responsible for implementing what the member states agree but is increasingly acting like a kind of European government that wants to dictate policy in the member states. As a result, citizens mainly ask themselves the question: who are those people that no one has ever chosen? Technocracy is opposed to democracy, said the conservative MEP from the floor of the European Parliament.”
This Was Never About Covid
The European Court of Justice was originally established to judge the application of the European treaties. Through liberal and activist interpretation of the treaties, the Court puts itself above the constitutions of the member states in domains where it is not empowered.
They usurp more and more power to judge the internal organization of member states, make policy choices, and even rewrite laws for which no appeal is possible. Here, also, citizens ask themselves: who are these alien judges for whom nobody has ever elected? Juristocracy is the opposite of democracy.
“The Commission and the Court then conspire to deprive member states that do not want to bow to the liberal sharia of their right to vote and to blackmail them financially by withholding billions from the Corona Recovery Fund, which, by the way, everyone now realizes was never about Corona, but about power and control. Then they sell this surrender of power as defending the democratic rule of law! It really can’t get any more hypocritical than that,” emphasized Vandendriessche.
The European Union Is Off The Rails
“The rule of law can only be democratic if it respects the sovereignty of the people and thus democracy. Not judges and officials of the European Union, but nation-states decide how to organize themselves internally and what political choices to make. For they are democratically legitimized by their people and not the European Union,” said Vandendriessche.
“The European Union is totally derailing and becoming something we never signed up for. So the British drew their conclusions and left. First, but if it continues like this, they certainly won’t be the last,” he concluded.
