Baroness Mandelson, still plotting against the British electorate.
These are days the conspiracy theorists can really get worked up about, what on earth is going on? We have to ask. We have financial meltdown and a Government digging an even deeper hole than the one it started in as it desperately tries to find a way out, the value of the pound is plummeting faster than a sky diver in freefall, and suddenly the EU Commission President, Jose Manuel Barroso, pops up and states: "the people who count in Britain think we should join the euro".
Who exactly does Mr Barroso think the people who count are in Britain? The 60 million voters who will soundly reject scrapping our pound for a foreign currency, the euro, or a tiny minority of people in Government who have little regard for what the people think? Who exactly are the "people that count" he has been talking to? Is one of them, Baroness Mandelson perchance?
The old Labour sinister minister of spin is certainly implicated with this mad idea of destroying our fiscal freedom, what fiscal freedom we may have left when Brown and Darling have done with it. The press and media have linked the EU's unelected Commission President and his comments to Mandy, who said recently that 'our aim' should be to join the euro. He has never wanted a a referendum or the chance for the people to have a say on this most serious of issues, and it looks as if he is still plotting the downfall of our sovereign currency, the pound, with the help of Barroso.
Nigel Farage MEP, the leader of the UK Independence Party, said: 'If Barroso would like to consult the "people who matter in Britain" then he can call for a referendum on the euro so the people of Britain can tell him where to go.'
According to a European Commission spokesman Manuel Jose Barroso's comments were nothing more than 'reflections'. He also said 'The British people are very pragmatic. When they feel it is right to join the euro, they will.' With these sorts of remarks we have to remember it is now the pantomime season, so all together: "Oh no we won't", but Widow Twanky is still plotting!
