Senior sources in Brussels have revealed that the UK is secretly backing plans for the creation of a permanent EU President. Currently the presidency of Europe rotates every six months around member states, but the European Constitution will create the posts of a permanent EU President and Foreign Minister, giving more continuity. It was revealed at last week's summit on the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome, that EU leaders want to revive the ill-fated constitution by at least 2009.
Quote: "The president would be appointed by other EU leaders, rather than being directly elected. Neil O'Brien, director of the independent think tank Open Europe, warned that the new president would inevitably gain more powers as time went on. Mr O'Brien said: "It is very hard to see how the president would be accountable to the people. As for who could do it, Tony Blair would be an obvious candidate."
I thought that was real interesting that British Prime Minister Tony Blair would be a top candidate for European President. I said not so long ago that I thought he would end up with a top job in Europe, as he has served the elite well. His government has brought in homosexual marriage, homosexual adoption, has ended the prohibition on the promotion of homosexuality in schools, has made it illegal to discriminate against homosexuals, is bringing in a compulsory national identity card and has attempted to make it a crime to speak against other religions. My friend Cheryl says that Europeans should be very concerned that their future President would not be elected by the people, but appointed by other EU leaders. Unfortunately this is the way the European Union works. The European Commission is not elected by the people, ministers are appointed to the Commission by member state governments, and remain completely unaccountable to their home countries, even though they decide most of our laws. The EU is a supranational entity. It is an organization that exists above state governments, and I guess that's why it is said of Daniel's fourth beast, that it is diverse from all other empires that have come before it. The following link was sent to me by my friend Ed, and are by Javier Solana's grandfather, Salvador de Madariaga, on the subject of state sovereignty and supranational organizations...
Quote: "It is a well-known fact that the League works on the principle of unanimity. The alternative to such a principle is a super-state, since on the day a nation could be bound by decisions taken by an international body against its own vote, its own sovereignty would have been transferred to the international body in question...
