The EU and the Soviet Union (What’s the Difference?)

Vernon Coleman

`The EU has been compared to the former Soviet Union. There is a council of ministers (the ruling clique), the European Commission (the politburo) and a parliament (the Supreme Soviet).

The rulers are unaccountable to the people and contemptuous of them.

The people with the power can't be fired or changed or held to account by the people.

The EU introduces laws which bind its successors and cannot be repealed; it creates laws by directive, without any regard for the needs and rights of businesses or individuals.

And the EU gathers around it `satellite' or weaker states – promising them membership of the EU in due course.’

The above section appeared in my book England Our England which was first published in 2002 and which is now available again as a paperback on Amazon.
