Kevin Myers: We are mere carrion on table of EU cannibals
From the outset of the EU expedition, we were told that its purpose was to bring Europe together and to create harmony between the peoples of a continent twice riven by world wars.
So the EU would therefore both prevent war and the pretext for war; it would allow no widespread poverty, and instead, there would be social inclusion, to be endorsed and enforced by the EU. Thus would emerge a new Europe of justice and peace.
We now know what a lie this is. The primary purpose of the EU is to shield the major banks of Germany and France from the consequences of their insane investments in an Irish banking sector that was run by felons and fools.
