As Greece holds its referendum today, some indications as to the arrogance and scale of the European Union project.
Syriza were democratically elected in January, yet this reality is one leaders of the European Union appear capable of overlooking. Despite this mandate, Martin Schulz, President of the European Parliament, wishes to see Alexis Tsipras' government replaced, not by the will of the Greek people, but by Brussels. To quote from Ambrose Evans-Pritchard and Colin Freeman in today's Sunday Telegraph:
"Mr Schulz earlier called for the elected Syriza government to be replaced by 'technocrat' rule until stability is restored. The alarmist warnings are part of an escalating campaign of pressure by European leaders as Greeks decide their destiny"
This seems to relate to an Agence France-Presse article on Schulz from earlier this week. The desired replacement of elected leaders by 'technocrats' demonstrates just what the European Union has become. A No vote in Greece today is the best response to Brussels colonialism.
