Reader comment on: European Parliament Censors Its Own Free Speech
Submitted by John, Mar 12, 2017 13:50
This the EU ratchet system at work. Little by little individual freedom is taken away until it is eventually all gone! The EU treats democracy as an inconvenience - eg a second referendum in Ireland on the Lisbon treaty. If there had been a second no vote would there have been a third or even fourth referendum? Even remainers acknowledge that there are many problems with the EU, but here is the thing, there is no democratic way of the population letting the EU elites know. For example, if you do not like Jean Claude Junker there is no way of voting him out of office. If you do not like EU policies - tough, you can't change them. The EU does not even tell you what they are!
