EU Crisis. United in Protest. Austerity is Non Grata

Austerity is declared non grata by the people. United in Diversity is now United in Protest. Europe has had enough of Brussels, its incompetence, its greed. Taboos are being smashed at the doors of Commission H.Q. on the Rue Archimede as protests stretch across 23 countries
From Madrid to Athens, Paris to Rome, Europeans are coming together. Swaths of society are no longer willing to lay down before the beast of burden.
Is it too soon to proclaim the Commission “Enemy of the People.”
Their crisis performance is dismal, inexperienced and most alarmingly devoid of any real responsibility for their failing actions. They simply are looking after jack and play the same old trick. Not me, didn't do it, wasn't there.

Again for the 18th year in a row, auditors failed to sign off the EU budget. This year it was 112 billion Euros. “E.U. Financial management is not yet up to standard,” the auditors bemoaned.

Elected and democratic officials are alarmed at the growing sums of unaccountable funds from the E.U publicly funded purse. Brussels style is showing disrespect towards their fellow citizens. Yet for these people life's pretty honky dory down on Eurocracy Road. And what's more, the unemployed, the impoverished, the humiliated see this comfortable lifestyle and are not impressed.
Twenty three thousand staff support 27 commissioners in Brussels of whom hardly one commissioner is known to the average citizen in the union. But what citizens now know, is where to find the policy makers who introduced pain and wrecked people's dreams in order to save private banks.

Predictions are claiming austerity has hardly arrived in Europe and that it will be around for several years. It is a massive gamble to assume the outcome will be a forgiving Europe huddling together as one happy Superstate.

EU Crisis: More Europe: What it Stands For. Eurocracy.

The EU (Commission) is now democratically unsustainable. Financial austerity imposed on sinner states Greece, Portugal, Ireland and Spain has led to genuine hardship, social unrest and a rethink about the pursuit of the European federalist dream.
Brussels demands extra money from cash strapped taxpayers to fund "More Europe" provoking an open think process about what exactly is the meaning of "More Europe." Many see "More Europe" as additional funding to the already lavish gravy train lifestyle enjoyed by a greedy elitist group who have little or no allegiance to Europe's citizens. People who sit around Brussels dreaming up ways to enhance their Federalist goals which most in Europe now regard as a dead ambition.
Recently in Berlin, UK foreign secretary warned, "People feel that in too many ways the EU is something that is done to them, not something over which they have a say. People feel the EU is a one-way process, a great machine that sucks up decision-making from national parliaments to the European level until everything is decided by the EU."
When told there would be opposition to increasing their budgets “More Europe” employees took to protesting. They concluded "We demand that member states have the courage to tell their citizens that a reduction in the European budget would have, for all them, a higher cost, the cost of no Europe, or the cost of less Europe."
¶ No one here can love or understand me, oh what hard luck stories they all hand me.
Make my bed and light the light I'll be home late tonight E.U. bye bye.  ¶

What does that mean exactly. Less Brussels bureaucracy, less meddling in people's lives, less obnoxious sneering at the notion of nations rights to self determination. Or less super stars manning the watchtower against the pending doom facing Europe if citizens refuse Brussels demands for "More Europe."    
The United Kingdom is a new champion in curtailing the excess of the Babylonian Tribe of Dreams. It has told More Europe "British voters are gloomy about the future of the EU. It is clearer and clearer that the people of this country want out of the European Union. That public disillusionment with the EU in Britain is the deepest it has ever been. And, that it may make the whole EU institution democratically unsustainable in the UK."
You see "More Europe" is not now regarded as being about safeguarding Europeans. It has become the will of a Brussels colossus to feed its growing appetite for power and glory to spend citizens money and to be well rewarded in doing so. It is a question over whether those whom they instruct to embrace austerity are becoming serfs and wage slaves to unpopular Eurocracy and banking plutocracy. Who plays who in this game. Maybe it was just a bad week to ask the bosses for a wage rise.
