EU Commission

As Europeans, one problem we face is the EU Commission and its parliament. Before the Commission, there was the European Common Market which allowed European countries to freely trade with each other. But as the years have passed, the EU Commission as it has become, has increased its stranglehold over Europe and every aspect of our daily lives.

Unfortunately successive governments and our politicians have not been truthful to us; what they have not told us is how the Commission and the European Parliament works. The Commission creates EU directives which are dreamt up by their commissioners and bureaucrats. These directives are submitted and automatically passed by the European Parliament, which in turn, are passed by the member states’ governments; these rules then become law throughout Europe. The EU commission does not publish any accounts and has not done so for years; it is wholly unaccountable to its members, us. We, the people of Europe do not directly elect the EU commissioners. As taxpayers, billions of our money is paid to the Commission in membership fees, which pays the commissioners, their staff and MEPs their very generous salaries, allowances and pensions for rules we did not ask for or want. The EU Commission and its parliament is a monstrous bureaucracy totally out of control and out of touch. It is a huge parasite sucking the blood out of us, the people of Europe. It is not a democracy, it is a dictatorship.

The EU Commission and its parliament must not be allowed to continue without major reforms and accountability.

We deserve better, much better and New Independent Centralists, NIC will demand it.
