EUROPEAN REFERENDUM INITIATIVE

Dutch voters now demanding referendum on TTIP

Dutch voters want a referendum on the TransAtlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), throwing into doubt the future of the US-EU free trade deal, nine days after the country’s ‘no’ vote in a plebiscite on an EU-Ukraine association agreement.

Comment: A most promising development, this is democracy in action! The TransAtlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), also known as the Transatlantic Free Trade Area (TAFTA), is being negotiated between the Obama Administration and unelected bureaucrats of the Brussels EU. A highly undemocratic trade deal that is being conducted in clandestine, the talks are taking place under heavy influence of the multibillion-dollar global pharmaceutical investment industry.

The mechanism through which Dutch citizens are demanding a referendum on the TTIP deal is the Advisory Referendum Act, a law passed in the Netherlands in 2015. Under the Act, legislation can be subjected to a referendum if more than 300,000 citizens demand it. When a referendum is held, if a piece of legislation is rejected by more than half of the votes cast, with a mandatory turnout of at least 30%, its entry into force must be suspended indefinitely.

Thus far over 100,000 Dutch citizens have already signed the petition demanding a referendum on the TTIP deal..

Backroom Brussels? Report calls for EU lobbying clampdown

A transparency watchdog has called for legally-binding measures to tackle lobbying in the EU, following the release of its report that claimed permanent representations for member states were being left wide open to corporate pressure.
Read article at foodnavigator.com

Comment: It is no exaggeration to say that corporate lobbying in the Brussels EU is completely out-of-control. As researchers from theAlliance for Lobbying Transparency and Ethics Regulation have discovered, a request for lists of all meetings held with lobbyists from 17 European countries in 2015 led to only 4 governments providing some or all of the information requested. This is clearly absurd and bears no relation to the scale of corporate lobbying that is actually taking place.

In reality, the Brussels EU is a corporate-led dictatorship. Its executive level, the so-called European Commission, is controlled by corporate interests. The so-called European Parliament, meanwhile, has no right for fully independent law making.

The Brussels EU has proven time and again that it is utterly incapable of reform. As such, its corporate lobbying problem will persist until such time as the construct is dismantled and replaced with a model in which true democracy, rather than corporate interests, comes first: A Europe for the People, by the People.

Dutch Referendum Could Cause Trouble for European Union

A local, nonbinding referendum on a signed-and-sealed European trade deal might not normally make for high political drama. But if the Dutch say no on Wednesday to a two-year-old agreement between the European Union and Ukraine, the vote could cause major headaches for Brussels, the Dutch government and even the British one.
Read article in the New York Times (USA)

Comment: While, on the face of it, this referendum was supposedly about whether or not the Dutch people agreed to their national government signing a Brussels EU trade deal with Ukraine, in the minds of many voters it was never about this. Instead, the Dutch people – many of whom are aware of the construct’s Nazi roots – took the opportunity to signal their utter lack of support for its dictatorial style of government.

Meanwhile, with opposition to the Brussels EU growing across the entire European continent, on 23 June citizens of the UK will be voting in a referendum on their country’s actual membership of the construct. The choice at stake for the British people essentially concerns whether to submit to the increasing threats that are openly warning of “consequences” if they vote to leave, or whether to restore democracy and regain their country’s independence. Whatever they decide, one thing is already for sure in that the outcome of their referendum will ultimately affect the future of the British people for generations to come.

Britain warned it wields no power in German-dominated EU

Britain has little or no say over decisions made in a European Union increasingly dominated by German interests, Iceland’s prime minister has said.
Read article in the Daily Telegraph (UK)

Comment: For citizens in Great Britain, our exposure of the Nazi roots of the Brussels EU has been a particular provocation. Having twice previously – in WWI and WWII – played a critical role in saving Europe from takeover by the German Oil and Drug Cartel and its political stakeholders, the British people are now faced with the very real possibility that the extraordinary human sacrifices their countrymen made in the past may have been in vain.

However, in their upcoming referendum on their country’s membership of the Brussels EU, the people of Britain have a chance to break free from its dictatorship, restore democracy and preserve their country’s independence. But with European leaders already openly warning of “consequences” if Britain votes to leave, the Cartel and its stakeholders are clearly preparing to do whatever it takes to prevent this from happening.

Leader of UK business group resigns after call to leave EU

The director-general of the British Chambers of Commerce has resigned after saying the U.K. should leave the European Union.
Read article on the Business Insider website

Comment: With Britain’s referendum on its membership of the Brussels EU now officially scheduled for June 23, the resignation of John Longworth from his post as director-general of the powerful British Chambers of Commerce business group is a highly significant event.

Openly describing the dictatorial Brussels EU construct as “incapable of meaningful reform”, Longworth says he took the decision to resign from his position to enable him to speak out freely over the issue. The first influential figure to resign from a senior post over the issue of Britain’s upcoming referendum on the Brussels EU, he is unlikely to be the last.

Euro depression is 'deliberate' EU choice, says former Bank of England chief

Europe's deep economic malaise is the result of "deliberate" policy choices made by EU elites, according to the former governor of the Bank of England. Lord Mervyn King continued his scathing assault on Europe's economic and monetary union, having predicted the beleaguered currency zone will need to be dismantled to free its weakest members from unremitting austerity and record levels of unemployment.
Read article in the Daily Telegraph (UK)

Comment: Europe's current economic malaise is hardly the first damaging policy choice that the Brussels EU has deliberately inflicted on its citizens.

In a little-noticed article in the Financial Times in 2001, the then president of the Brussels EU Commission, Romano Prodi, stated the following: “I am sure the euro [currency] will oblige us to introduce a new set of economic policy instruments. It is politically impossible to propose that now. But some day there will be a crisis and new instruments will be created.”

As such, it can be seen that the ongoing economic crises in Europe are being created deliberately so that the Brussels EU elites can use them as a means of bringing in further laws that take them gradually closer to the political dictatorship they have desired all along.

Referendum contagion that threatens to paralyse Europe

From Finland in the north to Greece in the south, voters want a new say over their terms of EU membership.
Read article in the Daily Telegraph (UK)

Comment: The ‘Brussels EU’ is a dictatorial structure serving global corporate interests that are threatening the lives of hundreds of millions of people across Europe. Unless European citizens take action now, it will remain in place for generations to come and will subjugate the entire world under its control. Due to its fundamentally undemocratic structure, with the EU Commission holding all executive power and the EU Parliament serving merely as a fig leaf, the construct of the ‘Brussels EU’ is not reformable. It therefore needs to be publicly rejected by the people, dismantled, and eventually replaced by a truly democratic system of representation: a Europe of the people, by the people and for the people.

Dutch also want EU membership referendum, poll shows

A majority of people in the Netherlands want a referendum to be held on Dutch membership of the EU similar to the one taking place in Britain in June, according to a new poll by Maurice de Hond.
Read article at dutchnews.nl (The Netherlands)

Comment: As we have been saying for some time now, the people of Europe are witnessing the beginning of the end of the Brussels EU. Throughout history, every empire that was built dictatorially and undemocratically, without the consent and support of its people, has predictably failed. The Brussels EU will not be an exception to this rule. Regardless of the outcome of the UK’s referendum on its membership of the dictatorial construct, citizens in other countries will inevitably demand their own referendums. Sooner or later one country will leave the Brussels EU, and the floodgates will open.

EU referendum: Cameron sets June date for UK vote

The UK will vote on whether to remain in the EU on Thursday 23 June, Prime Minister David Cameron has said. The prime minister made his historic announcement in Downing Street after briefing the cabinet. He said he would be campaigning to remain in a reformed EU - and described the vote as one of the biggest decisions "in our lifetimes".
Read article on the BBC News website (UK)

Comment: In stating that the UK’s upcoming referendum on its membership of the Brussels EU will be one of the biggest political decisions its citizens will make in their lifetimes, David Cameron is of course correct. However, in campaigning for the UK to remain a member of the dictatorial construct it is clear he is deliberately omitting to make any mention of the construct’s Nazi roots. But he is hardly the first British leader to do so, of course. The true facts about the origins of the Brussels EU were similarly hidden prior to the UK’s first referendum on its membership of the undemocratic bloc, which took place on 6 June, 1975. Significantly, therefore, in a revealing article published in the Independent newspaper in June 2005, the millionaire businessman, Alastair McAlpine, who acted as campaign treasurer for the ‘Yes’ side in the 1975 vote, admitted that “the banks and the big industrial companies put in very large sums of money” to the ‘Yes’ side. The Independent also described how, according to an organizer of the ‘Yes’ campaign, Caroline de Courcey Ireland, the ‘Yes’ side additionally had the benefit of money from the European Commission, whose funding was used to charter a series of 100-seater jet planes from British Caledonian airlines to fly almost 1,000 pro-European speakers to briefings given by top level Eurocrats. Revealingly, de Courcey Ireland described the money as “a sort of special dispensation” from the Commission. In the run-up to their crucial vote on 23 June, the people of the UK should be prepared for even more skulduggery to be used by the Brussels EU in its desperate attempt to prevent them from leaving.

German lobbyists in Brussels: Fighting the corner of German business interests

Across the EU, more lobbying organisations come from Germany than from any other country.
Read article at lobbyfacts.eu

Comment: Particularly notably, of the German companies and organisations that have the most contact with the bureaucrats and technocrats in the European Commission, Bayer, the pharmaceutical and chemical company, had 26 meetings between December 2014 and November 2015. This statistic illustrates the fact that, unlike in a true democracy, in the Brussels EU dictatorship the real influence and decision-making power lies not with the people but with multinational corporate interests. The people of Europe have neither control over the executive level nor even over the legislative process itself. Worse still, the parliament they elect has no right for fully independent law-making either. Thus, by any definition, it can be seen that the Brussels EU is a dictatorship.

Big Pharma Leaders Warn Against Brexit

Big pharma leaders have warned against a British exit from the EU ("Brexit"), reports the Financial Times.
Read press release at pharmexec.com

Comment: In a particularly notable quote in this press release, Roger Perlmutter, head of research and development at Merck, one of the world’s largest drug companies, said that Britain's withdrawal from the Brussels EU would be "challenging" for his company’s scientists, who had benefited from receiving grants from it. Notably, his statement came only days after British prime minister David Cameron had openly urged business leaders to campaign for Britain to remain a member of the dictatorial construct. As Britain’s referendum on its Brussels EU membership draws closer, it seems safe to predict that the multinational pharmaceutical and chemical industries will be doing all they can to terrify the British people into voting against leaving.

Don’t mention the Brexit: EU bans Plan B studies

European Commission economists have been banned from researching the impact of Britain leaving the 28-nation bloc, or even talking about it, for fear of getting embroiled in the heated British debate ahead of a referendum, officials said.
Read article at reuters.com

Comment: Prime Minister David Cameron has promised the British people a referendum on their country’s membership of the Brussels EU. With the vote expected to take place either this year or next, polls currently suggest a clear majority of people will vote in favor of leaving the construct. As such, far from worrying about getting embroiled in the British debate, the real reason Brussels EU economists have been banned from drawing attention to this issue is that the dictatorial construct fears their doing so could encourage other European countries to hold similar referendums – thus accelerating its own demise.
