Autonomous Mind has been rampant the last couple of days: all three links below are to that blog. The 'ominous omissions' relate to the blog-post re the usual suspects: "In every conflict there are people who are described as ‘fifth columnists’. These are people who clandestinely or otherwise undermine a larger group such as a nation from within, in order to help an external enemy. The don’t see the external entity as an enemy because they share its aims and are therefore comfortable to side against their own people. They engage in propaganda and work actively promote the aims of the external entity." The omission was in the total lack of coverage from the BBC and The Guardian of yesterday's speech by the President of the European Council, Herman Van Rompuy. Autonomous Mind follows it up today with another stunner re "The truth Herman Van Rompuy is trying to hide".
"That fear which ferments inside the EU does indeed lead to egoism. One only needs to look at Van Rompuy or his colleague in the Commission, José Manuel Barroso, to see the rampant egoism and unswerving belief that they and their colleagues alone know best and that we must bend to their will. Because of the EU’s fear they try to stoke fear in people. They falsely claim that rejection of their creed leads to nationalism. They claim that sovereign, independent nation states will lead to war. It is a lie."
