Does anyone remember the original excuse for closer European ties?
If my memory serves me correctly it was to provide economic cooperation in the coal and steel industry?
Later they expanded this to full economic cooperation, which made a sort of sense.
So how the fuck does this tie in with installing gizmos in our cars to take control of how we drive?
Now they are planning on installing equipment in our cars to prevent us from exceeding speed limits.
Not only is this unbelievably intrusive but it is downright dangerous. If I am overtaking a lorry or whatever, I might need that extra burst of speed to complete the manoeuvre safely, but those fuckers in Brussels would prefer if I smack head on into an oncoming bus. When I am driving MY car I want to be in full control, and I don’t want some little box or other suddenly taking over.
Of course, once they have these little devices installed we get to discover their true function – control. They not only have full access to the details of every journey we take but can impose tolls based on those journeys. Next we will be getting fines through the door every morning for driving through a light at amber, or parking too far from the kerb. They can slam arbitrary parking fees on any road they like and charge us accordingly.
Naturally the EU are hastily issuing press releases denying all of this. This of course just confirms that it’s true as those mendacious bastards wouldn’t know the truth if it bit them in the arse.
Welcome to the world of totalitarian dictatorship.
