PARLIAMENT FIDDLES WHILE THE EU BURNS OUR MONEY
MERKEL’S MADNESS TRIPLES THE IMMIGRANT BUDGET
UK SET TO PAY TOWARDS NEW EU €35 BILLION (£31 BILLION) IMMIGRANT CRISIS BUDGET
At its meeting on Tuesday, the EU Commission voted to triple the EU’s funding for “migration and border management” to €35 billion.
For the next long-term EU budget, the Commission proposed to triple funding for immigration and border management to €34.9 billion, from €13 billion in the previous period.
This amount does not include the billions being spent outside the EU’s borders, nor does it include a myriad of other costs associated with this crisis.
The Commission says it is responding to:-
“increased migratory, mobility and security challenges, with more flexible funding instruments to address unforeseen migratory events and border protection”
A new Integrated Border Management Fund will be created and the European Border and Coastguard Agency will be strengthened with a new standing corps of around 10,000 border guards.
AN EXTRA FUND OF €12 BILLION (£11 BILLION) FOR BORDER AGENCY
Outside this fund, more than €12 billion will be dedicated to:-
“further strengthening the European Border and Coastguard Agency and EU-LISA”
WILL THE COMMISSION NOW ALSO FINANCE THE CONSTRUCTION OF FENCES?
No, the EU refuses to pay for any physical border protection. Here is what the EU Commission says about one of the most effective methods used by countries such as Hungary, to maintain its borders:-
“The Commission’s work is aimed at ensuring proper control of borders, not closing them. The Commission has never financed fences and will not do so under the new EU budget either.”
In its announcement, the EU Commission admitted:-
“the scale and urgency of the 2015-16 refugee crisis took Europe by surprise”
The EU’s announcement on Tuesday of a massive increase in the visible funds for dealing with this ongoing EU crisis should therefore come as no surprise to British MPs who wish the UK to continue inside the EU’s frameworks and continue paying increasing sums to the EU.
The EU started seeing increased illegal immigration in the years running up to 2015, but it was the unilateral and unprecedented action taken by Angela Merkel that summer which caused an influx on a scale never before seen.
In that action Frau Merkel tore up the EU’s Dublin regulation, which stated that immigrants had to be registered in their first country of entry. This meant that immigrants could enter the EU and pass through several countries on their way to Germany.
Note that Frau Merkel did not consult on this rash measure. She took the action unilaterally, in direct contravention of an EU regulation. In effect she broke all the rules, causing massive harm to many EU member states, and yet Germany has never been brought before any court nor has it suffered any official censure.
Tens of billions of euros are now being thrown at a problem which was exacerbated by the actions of one EU leader.
IS €35 BILLION THE TOTAL COST?
Most definitely not. The EU a myriad of funds associated with the immigrant crisis. The €35 billion is a drop in the ocean. It does not include the billions now being thrown at dozens of foreign countries in an effort to stem the flow.
Nor does it include the billions being spent in member states in an effort to manage immigrants who have already arrived and who are failing to integrate.
Nor does it include the rising cost of internal policing in member states, where crimes such as rape and murder are increasing on an unprecedented scale.
Last year we did some research which indicated that Germany alone was facing a bill in excess of €100 billion, in addition to all the centralized costs.
Please don’t forget the separate fund called the Facility for Refugees in Turkey. The UK government in March agreed to pay for the second tranche of this fund, despite having no obligation to do so. We reported on it at the time but, of course, the BBC chose to ignore it.
HOW DOES THIS AFFECT BREXIT?
In short, we are starting to see some of the consequences of being part of a thoroughly dysfunctional organization which is not up to its job.
This is the EU to which Remainer MPs and commentators wish Britain to continue to belong.
Very soon after the Referendum the EU insisted that it would not discuss Brexit as a whole. It demanded that a divorce bill first be agreed. Faced with what it knew at the time would be rocketing costs of Merkel’s immigrant crisis, as well as all the other challenges it faces, money was – and still is – the number one priority of the EU Commission.
YOU ARE PAYING FOR THIS
Even if the UK leaves the EU on March next year, which is much later than was to be expected after David Cameron said he would invoke Article 50 immediately, the British taxpayer will have been paying huge sums for the EU’s immigrant crisis which were unnecessary.
Significant sums of this money have been paid by the May government for ‘off-the-books’ EU funds which don’t even appear in the table of British annual contributions to the EU budget, as we have reported many times.
If the UK continues to pay the EU for years to come – as proposed by Theresa May – the British taxpayer will be subsidizing the EU’s incompetence in a great many areas, of which the massive hike in the immigration budget is just one.
Is this what Remainer MPs were voting for yesterday? Do they even know about any of this?
For two days we have been listening to intellectual pygmies from all parties in the House of Commons, pronouncing with great authority on subjects on which they clearly have little to no knowledge, acting in defiance of the authority of the majority of the British people who voted in the EU Referendum.
It’s one thing to be ideologically hostile, like Keir Starmer. He has a sinister political agenda – one that is anathema to the great majority of the British people.
It’s quite another to be ignorant and arrogant at the same time. This unfortunately is the case with the majority of MPs who have stood up to speak in parliament in the last two days.[Source: EU Commission] 06.55am, 14 June 2018

Ah yes, but it doesn’t count because it’s Germany, and Germany can do what it likes, including throwing open the borders to all comers and then threatening other countries with penalties if they refuse to take in the excess.
Way back in 1957 the Salzburg-born political scientist Leopold Kohr (1909-94) wrote in his book The Breakdown of Nations that a federal Europe would be an ‘Unsuccessful Federation’ because:
“European federation, based on its great national blocs, unequal in size and strength, would in the end become a federation in the interest of Germany, because Germany alone would be large enough to enforce a federal law, and no law could be enforced without Germany’s consent. Germany would be arbiter and master.”
The truth of Kohr’s astute observation is becoming ever more clear. Those who persist in believing that the EU is in some way a means of RESTRAINING Germany from dominating the rest of Europe believe a very silly thing indeed.
