The favourite subject of Europhiles everywhere, is Euro Myths. Eluned Morgan MEP is no exception.
Mrs Morgan said, "Some of the stories make me laugh frankly because they are so over the top, and sometimes you have to give these people credit for being so creative. "There was one recently where it said the European Commission was going to standardise the size of condoms and everyone was saying they wouldn't be big enough for British assets. "But it's just titillation fuelled by newspapers. Most of the Euromyths are either pure imagination or massive exaggeration. They're spread to make the EU appear sinister or silly."This is what masquerades as an argument in Federast circles. Sometimes, some eurosceptics indulge in exaggeration in order to make people take notice.
So what. Isn’t the EU itself built on an exaggerated fear of German invasion and sustained by a completely erroneous belief that all our jobs depend on it?
What the federasts fail to do is to address the real EU issues, like a run away budget, an evil agricultural policy or the unnecessary loss of our nation. Instead they prefer to repeat ad nauseum, myths that they claim have been disproved.
Their attempts at positive argument are even worse though, try this:
Also the people writing the legislation are Brussels administrators who are being driven by consumer demands. It's about protecting the consumer.Protecting the consumer from their own elected representatives no doubt? Because if the Brussels gravy train did not exist, such laws could anyway be passed at Westminster.
