A different crisis

100 YEARS ago there was a crisis in Europe.

The solution was the gun which resulted in WWI. Now any crisis in Europe is sorted by diplomacy.

Let’s remember the brave service personnel and civilians who gave their lives and their youth from various wars and conflicts over the years so that we can enjoy a freedom that sometimes is taken for granted.

Erm, you mean like Serbia/Croatia and Bosnia ? diplomacy did wonders there.... also like France ? that threatened to open their borders to allow unlimited illegals to come to Britain unless we paid them. Look, these people are responsible for 2 World Wars and umpteen inter-country conflicts....and a federal state of Europe with more un-elected heads and faceless nobodies, than any other area on the planet. Diplomacy, but no democracy... cut them loose.

Serbia/Croatia and Bosnia was a result of WWII and ethnic cleansing. Up until the born of the EU Britain fought all of Europe from France to Russia and including free Ireland, defeated Welsh, Scots and NI, so they could built its Empire.

WW1 could have been avoided, the politicians were too stupid to talk. We didn't give a hoot for Archduke Ferdinand whose assassination triggered it all. 21 years after WW1 ended the buggers started another one.... Europeans have major issues with short-and long term memory loss ! They are just incompetent, feudalistic, and badly run countries, who think democracy is a Chinese take away. No matter what anyone says The British are nothing like them, and we want out as well before it is too late. They are still considering Turkey for goodness sake as part of the Euro, and we know that country is islamist and an open gateway to terrorism training in Syria and the middle east too. God help us all if they are allowed freedom of movement.

Holidays are fine, it is when they suggest Europe allow unrestricted migration from Turkey to here, by allowing them membership, alarm bells ring. Utter madness. You might just as well offer ISIS free access....

Turkey is the least of our problems. The UK is getting like the USA with the number of home grown ISIS young recruits growing via the net.

Cameron can listen in to anyone he wants to (As he does now). Let these idiots go to the middle east, just DON'T allow them back here.

WW2 was largely caused by the punitive surrender agreement imposed on the Germans at the end of WW1 and was largely inevitable.

Perhaps the surrender of UK sovereignity to the EU also contains the seeds of a future conflict which will appear to have been avoidable in hindsight
