Tomorrow it is election day for the European Parliament. I was planning on staying at home because all it is is a retirement solition for has-been politicians or politicians who have done something wrong that makes it impossible to be elected to the Danish parliament.
He has been convicted of having a non-proper relationship with a 13 year old boy. In the United States he would have been a registered sex-offender for 20 years and he is not a person Danish voters would put in the Danish parliament.
But the European Parliament is another matter. Criminals like him are common down there. I believe that this is the right place to put him, so we can show the other memberstates that we somehow believe in the European project and most Danes are for the European Union.
But I am not like most Danes. I believe that we should quit our membership.
The reason is that a lot of firms force their employees to work for a salery you can compare with welfare only.
In short time we will see families stand in line at food kitchens. The children of these workers will starve.
We can not say that European Union has done a lot for us. Maybe one positive thing is that it is easier to buy a woman to comfort you because we have removed our border control when we ended up deap buried in this bureaucracy so the border control had to go, but really start to wondering how much these women suffer. Human trafficing should be stopped and one way to make it more difficult for the criminals is to have a border control.
But human suffering has never been the strong side of politicians and that is really the core of the problem with the European Parliament. They are too far away from the ordinary population.
We better leave it before it is too late and that’s why we have to vote tomorrow.
I will do my part. What about you?
