An Opinion Poll conducted for the LSE found that 61 per cent of Remainers aged 18 to 39 said they felt ‘disgusted’ with the decision to Leave the EU – perhaps a typical emotional response from the extremely badly educated “snowflake generation”. Those age groups over 45 voted strongly to Leave. The rest voted to remain: the 18-24 age group by 73%, the 25-34 age group by 62% and the 35-44 age group by 52%. It was these age groups who were most exposed to (illegal) EU propaganda in British schools and Universities (where the fascist supported Jean Monnet Professorships still operate).
But the further people developed from the the ignorance of youth the more they voted Leave. The longer they lived outside the EU propaganda institutions of school and university the more they voted Leave.
One example is the EU funded (and therefore also UK taxpayer funded) Jean Monnet Chairs at British Universities. For £38,000 over three years Professors agree to teach a minimum of 90 hours on “EU related subjects” to do research and “carry out events”.
One of the stated aims of the programme was not an educational one to understand the arguments for and against membership of the EU. No – the aims were to “increase interest in understanding and participating in the European Union”. A complete denial of contrary views!
But Jean Monnet was a Euro-Statist corporatist – a State planner with little time for democratic sensibilities. In 1947, the Monnet Plan was adopted by the French government, and Monnet himself was appointed commissioner-general of the National Planning Board. In May 1950 he and Robert Schuman proposed the European Coal and Steel Commission (ECSC) and Monnet became the first president of the ECSC’s “High Authority”. The ECSC inspired the creation of the European Economic Community in 1957. His project to destroy the nations of Europe he made clear:
“Europe’s nations should be guided towards the Superstate without their people understanding what is happening. This can be accomplished by successive steps each disguised as having an economic purpose but which will eventually and irreversibly lead to federation”
Listed on the Committee of the Jean Monnet Association was one Winrich Behr who had served as a committed Nazi in Rommel’s Afrika Corp and who said:
“There is not much difference between the Head of the ECSC High Authority (forerunner of the EU) and a Heeresgruppe (army group) What can’t be done by a Panzer Division can be done by a Bureaucrats Federation”
How True!
The younger and middle aged British were more likely to vote “Remain” because they were exposed to decades long European Union propaganda in schools, mass media and entertainment. The EU penetrated all schools and universities with its “educational” programmes and forced businesses and local authorities to display the EU flag when they deigned to grant us some of our own money back.
The European Union paid for sponsorship of television programmes including the adventure series “Highlander”. The EU still funds the BBC which organised the first meetings of journalists, politicians and businessmen in the 1960s to promote British entry into the EU (then the EEC) in 1973 and it continues its overt EU propaganda today.
Even neutral or anti EU media were seduced into claiming the UK “got European funds” when of course we never got a penny – just a small proportion of what we put in. If we had received so much why is the EU today, on our leaving, so worried about the financial black hole which we will leave behind?
One of the EU’s great propaganda ideas was the “Stawberry Ice Cream war” a comic book for children which the right described as an attack on democratic nations and the left described as racist! THEY WERE BOTH RIGHT!
Another brochure from the EU was called “EUROQUEST”. Like the other pro European Union propaganda publications of the then Labour Government and the European Union, Euroquest was a glossy brochure distributed to schools in the name of “information” but which of course blatantly defied the Education Act’s prohibition of politically biased material in schools. The Department for Education itself has stated in the past that in the 1996 Education Act (as in previous versions):
“Section 406 of the Act requires school governing bodies, head teachers and local authorities to forbid the promotion of partisan political views in the teaching of any subject in schools …. Section 407 requires them to take all reasonable practical steps to ensure that where political or controversial issues are brought to pupils attention they are offered a balanced presentation of opposing views.”
But such rules apparently did not apply to the European Commission in its various guises:
The UK Representation of the European Commission
The UK Office of the European Parliament
Relay Europe Ltd
The Charlemagne Group of Companies (!)
The European Movement
European Resource Centres for Schools and Colleges (organised in British Regions)
The Directorate for European Operations at the Open University
Regional “Euro-Forums” (Run by the British Government giving “information” about for example, the EURO)
“Euroquest” educated our children about the obvious (!) advantages of sacrificing our nation, parliament and democracy on the altar of the European Union.
The publication began by describing itself as “a travellers guide” a “trail of questions and answers about the European Union”. On the first page it uses interchangeably and without definition “the European Union” and “Europe”. The former of course only consisted at the time of 15 countries whose national democratic parliaments had been destroyed in favour of a supranational bureaucracy in Brussels. The “Europe” consisted of 42 countries, 27 of which were then still democratic nations, including the two richest, Norway and Switzerland which had repeatedly voted against joining the “European Union”. But there was of course a severe limit to the “educational” remit of the European Commission’s publication.
On a map of “Europe” there were no names given for Switzerland, Norway and Yugoslavia – they were “non countries”! In lauding the potential expansion of the European Union (i.e. the destruction of the democratic national constitutions of those countries which might enter) the pretence is precisely the opposite to that “ever closer, political integration” which “European” Union leaders propagate within the EU. They merely assert:
The bigger the EU becomes the more people there would be to sell to and more good ideas to share from all the different countries.
As if such trade had never happened before!
In other words to our schoolchildren they repeated the same lies and deception as in 1972 when Britons were told they were joining a “Common Market” of sovereign self-governing, free trading nations. Then as now of course the reality was different from the propaganda – a fact which the treacherous Edward Heath eventually openly admitted.
This touchy-feely, innocuous description of the EU was the watchword throughout the earlier years of the EU and of this propaganda publication: “The European Union is like a club” when of course it was nothing of the sort. Indeed the EU now proves it – how many clubs do you have to pay to leave?
It was always a superstate based on a constitution which bound its members in virtually every aspect of political, economic, budgetary and then increasingly foreign and defence policy. And it did so, (as the European Treaties repeated ad nauseam) “irrevocably and irreversibly”. Indeed there was no procedure for withdrawal — not quite the kind of “club” most of us would wish to join.
Fortunately for the UK a withdrawal clause was inserted in the Lisbon Treaty – and we in Britain are taking advantage of it!
“Euroquest” went on:
The Club was started after the Second World War to make sure that there are no more wars between the countries of Europe.
Of course the European Common Market – with only 6 members – was not founded until 1957. It was (a then uncorrupted) NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (which even today has far more members than the EU) which preserved the peace in Europe. Only 7 years after the Maastricht Treaty gave even more powers to the European Union and turned all nationals into “European citizens”, we had war in Europe. The Yugoslav war was started in 1989 with the recognition of Croatia by Germany and the European Union and the break up of Yugoslavia, a recognised sovereign nation. As readers of Freenations for more than 20 years will know, this was an exact repeat of the manoeuvres of Germany prior to the first and second world wars.
“Euroquest” went on to claim that “all members of the EU pay a membership fee and this money is used to help everybody”. In fact Britain was always and remains today the second largest contributor to the budget and when Euro flags are put up outside some industrial or infrastructure projects in Britain claiming that the EU has “funded” it, this is a lie. Britain gets no money from the EU, it only – occasionally – gets back a small proportion of what British taxpayers have contributed. Even that depends on our doing what Brussels, not our own parliament, decides is best for us.
Margaret Thatcher negotiated a large rebate for the UK. Tony Blair gave most of it up – in return for promised reforms that never really occurred!
YOUR PASSPORT: On page two of “Euroquest” there is a picture of a British passport, under the caption “this is an EU passport, it proves you are a citizen of the European Union”. This is of course what British politicians always denied – that it doesn’t mean “citizenship” in the strict sense of the word! But in fact it was designed to mean just that. The Maastricht Treaty made it clear that we had “duties and obligations” towards this European Union of which – without our consent – we were made “citizens”.
One of the favourite tricks of those political institutions (and empires) who seek to enhance their reputation and demonstrate how we cannot do without them is to attach themselves to projects and ideas which were well established and ran perfectly well without their “help”. In “Euroquest” the European Union claims that “agreements between countries are making it easier and safer for people to travel around the European Union”.
But of course such agreements were made long before the European Union existed and such agreements are made between countries which are not in the European Union, and between EU members and non members.
The document also claimed that the EU “has helped to build new bridges, tunnels and high speed railways”. This is nonsense – the EU has merely attached its name to certain projects either by simply lending money (at normal commercial rates) or returning some of the taxes it has extracted from member nations (without any of the democratic processes usual within the national parliaments).
Before the EEC or EU existed people in Europe travelled to and worked in other countries – not by right but if they could show there was a job. They could also study in other countries. I myself found no difficulty in working in a German school and later getting a job in a German University before the UK entered the EEC (EU). And today I receive a pension from the German State for the years I worked there. The naive youth who so feverishly voted Remain have doubtless not been taught these elementary facts – deliberately!
In another section “Euroquest” claimed:
We can buy things from all 15 countries without paying the extra costs or duty usually put on things bought from other countries.
This is of course the success not of the EU but of the World Trade Organisation which has dismantled many barriers to free trade in recent years — and on a global basis, not just for a few countries in Europe. Secondly this “free trade” does not apply to the majority of European countries (27 of them) which were then outside the EU. In particular the poor countries of Eastern Europe – indeed the poor countries of the world which export food and raw materials – were faced with very high tariff barriers for their exports to the EU and those tariffs make basic foodstuffs very expensive for the poor inside the EU. Eventually of course they were forced to give up their democratic sovereignty to be able to trade fairly with the EU.
Thirdly all preferential treatment given to trade within the EU block is a direct tax on those outside. So much for internationalism!
What utter hypocrisy.
The brochure further claimed that: “The EU countries have agreed to help reduce air pollution.” In fact many EU countries are being allowed to increase air pollution while the UK itself has reduced pollution drastically in recent years. In any case there is no point in reducing air pollution for some countries in a small part of Europe if others refuse to do the same. That is why there are world agreements (as in the Kyoto summit) to tackle air and sea pollution which are more relevant than the EU’s parochial attempts.
In another section the brochure claimed that the EU “sets high standards for our waste water”. In fact the most polluted waters in Europe flow through the EU’s own “capital” — Brussels — where untreated sewerage eventually flows into the sea at the aptly named “Flushing”. The brochure referred to sea, river and air pollution saying that they “know no frontiers”. But that has always been the case and international agreements between sovereign self-governing nations have always covered such matters.
Indeed if we accepted the EU’s argument (that pollution knows no frontiers therefore national frontiers should not exist) then the EU itself should not exist since it has artificial frontiers which cannot stop pollution of Mediterranean countries in the Middle east and North Africa and not least of a non member Switzerland right in the middle of Europe!
FOOTBALL PROPAGANDA: In a populist attempt to link the EU’s propaganda to football, “Euroquest” listed well known European football teams (Ajax, Manchester United, Barcelona etc). “Sport offers a chance for people from different countries to meet and get to know each other”, says “Euroquest”. But strangely the children were not encouraged to get to know about teams from Moscow or Warsaw or Zurich or Oslo! These are of course teams from the free, democratic nations of Europe, not from the European Union.
ABOLISHING THE POUND: The propaganda of course included a section on the EURO the purpose of which, students are told, is to “make it much easier to travel, to shop or to open a bank account in any of the 15 countries” – although I found no difficulty in doing these things before the UK was in the European Union!
There was no mention that 3 of the 15 EU countries had opted out of the EURO. There was no mention of the fact that the single currency abolishes the national currencies, national central banks and of course the key attribute of national sovereignty (a national treasury and democratic control over monetary and fiscal affairs).
On page 11 of the brochure “Farming and fishing in the European Union” was described. The page was devoted to Denmark which “catches the most fish” — much of it of course from British territorial waters which, thanks to the Treaty of Rome, the European Union took away from Britain and turned into “Community” fishing grounds. Farmers, the students are told “are paid to help them grow crops to feed all the people in the EU”. Needless to say they don’t mention that millions of pounds were spent paying farmers not to grow anything at all and that Britain for instance is not allowed to produce more than 70% of its own milk (even though we used to be self sufficient in milk).
They even had the nerve to say that the “EU encourages farmers to use fewer chemicals to reduce the damage to the environment” when of course the principal characteristic of the European Union’s farming policy was to buy everything farmers produce at a fixed price thus encouraging them to farm ever more intensively and to produce (using more fertiliser) as much as possible from every acre of land.
The EU claimed it was “controlling the number of fish taken from the sea”. In fact the farcical fish quota system has meant that for decades hundreds of thousands of tons of dead fish are thrown back into the sea because the foolish fish that swim into the nets do not realise that the EU does not want them to be caught! The massive waste — and pollution — caused by this disgraceful policy is recognised throughout the world as the worst man-made scandal in the history of fishing.
The United Nations recently produced a report which showed that the best fish preservation scheme was run by the Falkland Islands — the only place where the British Government actually controls its own fishing grounds! But dumping dead fish at sea is not the only dumping done by the European Union. It also dumps (i.e. offloads at low prices) its excess agricultural and fish products on third word countries, where very poor local farmers and fishermen are put out of business.
On page 12 of the brochure “Research and Development in the European Union” is discussed: “The EU countries are working together on scientific projects and research”. What they don’t say is that British scientists who work, as they traditionally have done, with colleagues in the USA, Australia or Canada for instance do not get any EU funding. If they want funds they have to work with Italians, Germans or other EU “citizens”. This is of course a direct tax on successful British research and a subsidy to exclusively EU research bodies.
In pursuit of the fundamentally political aims of “Euroquest” students were asked to celebrate “Europe Day” which commemorates “the day in 1950 when the idea of a united Europe was first thought of. Of course it was thought of long before that — by Hitler and the Nazis and by Napoleon and in slightly more modest proportions by the bloodthirsty Charlemagne in the 8th century. But such antecedents must not be mentioned (although Charlemagne, having lived 1200 years ago and safely thought to have been forgotten) features in much EU propaganda (the Charlemagne Prize – founded by Nazis -, the EU’s “Charlemagne House” in Hove etc).
But there are some ideas about the EU which even this propaganda brochure dared not claim — that for instance the European Parliament was a parliament. Instead they say its role is “to give advice and help agree laws”. On the same page the brochure describes the European Court as a “referee in any argument over EU laws”. In fact of course like most courts its interpretations make the law. Indeed because the many European Treaties signed by 15 na­tions could only be agreed with the vaguest and least defined language, the European Court is constantly called upon to create law. It does so, on its own admission, not as an objective arbiter, but as a tool in the process of promoting the integration of the European Union.
One of the EU’s principal methods of undermining the nation states and their parliaments and centring power in Brussels was and remains today the construction of “regions” which report directly to the EU, bypassing those national parliaments. (One of Hitler’s ideas for destroying national governments). At the end of the brochure, under “further activities” students are encouraged to “write a letter to your MEP … if there is something in your area (an interesting term!) you think should be changed”. Why should they not write to their MP ? — because that might suggest that the European Union is irrelevant and that national parliaments and MPs still have validity.
The Euroquest propaganda was launched over 20 years ago. Today you will not find any mention of it. It was of course just one of many EU propaganda programmes aimed at British youth. But this old attempt to indoctrinate schoolchildren in the European Union’s project of eliminating the sovereign democratic countries of Europe was a truly obnoxious propaganda which certainly had and still has some effect in British education – and in the euro-fanatical emotionalism of so many of the British youth and university students who voted for Remain in June 2016.
