Lord Mandelson, made insulting remarks against British businessmen.
Most people who care for the United Kingdom and the sovereignty of their own country have never been able to understand how anyone can support EU membership when it undermines our own Parliament and costs so much, but last week it seems Peter Mandelson gave an answer to this conundrum.
Reported in the Mail on Sunday, 18th January 2009, it said that British bosses were outraged at a smear campaign made against them by the newly appointed Lord who had been brought back to salvage Gordon Brown's incompetent Government. His lordship, made the outrageous statement that British bosses were incapable of running a successful business. Adding insult to injury he said that there is a defect in the 'gene pool of British management'.
It seems that Baroness Mandy made these insulting comments at a meeting of MPs in Westminster last week when the several times disgraced ex MP was discussing the betrayal of our Royal Mail, he wants to sell it off to foreign ownership and it would seem he is willing to resort to any underhand tactics to do so. Many MPs were angered by the Business Secretary's proposals to give Dutch Post a minority stake in the Royal Mail. Brushing aside protests from MPs in the same contemptuous way he treats the British people, he indicated the reason he wanted the Dutch and not our own British managers was because he did not think them capable of turning the public sector business into a success.
Ruth Lea of the Centre For Policy Studies and former head of policy at the Institute of Directors said: "This does seem extremely unfair to British management. They are still regarded as some of the finest in the world."
This matter though is not just about the betrayal of the British business community, it is about the betrayal of all of us. When you consider the problems businessmen and women have had to face since sleazy New Labour were elected in 1997 and the lunacy and hinderance of petty fogging EU directives and bureaucracy, they must be counted as some of the best in the world - if they can survive in business in such an inhospitable climate where the EU and their own Government are against them, and now a recession, they must be classed as amongst the best in the world despite the lies of Baroness Mandy.
The selling off and undermining of the Royal Mail has nothing to do with common sense or trying to save it, but to comply with orders from the unelected bureaucrats of the European Union who Mandy really works for. Everything that has been done to comply with the EU has been detrimental to the interests of the UK and its people. Which gives the real answer to the reason why Europhiles support the EU - they must hate their own country intensely, why else would they support an organisation that has the ultimate goal of destroying British independence and democracy completely - surely this is proof enough?
