NEWS FROM THE BELLY OF THE BEAST
Hello again folks! This article entitled: "Don't let's be Beastly to the Belgians" was written by Nigel Farage and appears on the front page of the Summer 2010 edition of: "Bulletin from Brussels - News from the Belly of the Beast". It is primarily about EU President; Herman Van Rompuy. This gentleman is the highest paid [yet unelected] leader in the western world; whose appointment was agreed over a dinner and of whom 500 million folks have no mechanism to remove. I find it difficult to add to Nigel's words:
"We were promised that the new President of Europe would be a traffic stopper; a towering figure who would preside over a post Lisbon Treaty EU. What we got instead was an unknown; nondescript Belgian who writes bizarre poetry in his spare time. I thought it only right to comment. It seems right and proper to point out that the man being paid more than Obama had not been elected into his position and therefore cannot be removed. In his dirge like speech he went much further than any EU official ever before; calling for EU economic government and an evolution of global governance. What right did this ghastly little man have to tell us how to run our country? Yes - I know my comments were a bit strong but at least we got major coverage about who this man is and what power he has. And it is true; he really does have the charisma of a damp rag! On [the BBC's] 'Question Time' the following evening I was subjected to the mock outrage of the establishment; this from people who attack each other across the despatch box every week. In Brussels events were viewed more seriously and Jerzy Buzek, the President of the European Parliament, imposed the maximum, possible fine of 10 days allowances. I have been told that: "this must never happen again". Quite how they are going to enforce this we will find out when I have recovered from my plane crash. The is the new face of the EU, where criticism is not allowed. Yet when Dany Cohn-Bendit abused the Czech President, Vaclav Klaus, that was just fine. In a series of speeches two years ago I predicted the demise of Greece trapped inside the prison of nations that is the Euro. I intend to return to the subject when I am back. Expect the European Parliament to not be very happy"
Should not Bible-believing Christians have an interest in this Belgian EU President that we have been lumbered with? Should not Bible-believing Christians take note of this "News from the Belly of the Beast" - especially when we read the Books of Daniel and Revelation? Think about it ... secular politicians and political organizations are openly calling the EU 'the Beast'. Whether you are UKIP supporters or not - you should take note in these fast-darkening days.
Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!
