However, we have to bear in mind that democracy is not necessarily something that the Muslim faith believes in. Time will tell. To explain, think of what Muslims believe in as similar to what the rulers in the EU believe in. Total control. I explain below.
Before I explain, there are a couple of other points that people get upset about and I will include them with my comments on all three points.
- British sovereignty: This is not something that concerns me too much as I am more interested in South African sovereignty than British. Naturally, I would prefer this country to retain its sovereignty, but it is a done deal and too late, and Britain has already lost it. Human rights where a burglar is not sent to prison so he can look after his kids is just the latest incident in the Human Rights saga.
- EU funding: All the billions being poured into the coffers of our masters in the EU when we are having to make huge sacrifices over here, putting so many people on the scrap heap. This is a total waste, but as I am retired and have my own pension and even if the value of the pound comes down, I shall still survive if I live too long. And, I have no children who will be paying for our excess for the rest of their lives, do you?
- Democracy: Wait, I hear you say, it is democratic, MEPs make the laws and they are elected in each country. Wronnngggg! Unelected people; the president, the commissioners and various others, make all the rules and laws. Once these have been decided upon and drafted, they are sent to the MEPs to rubber-stamp them. If a rule or law fails at this step, it is sent back again, and again, and again, until it gets passed. I know this as I have two friends who are MEPs and they have explained exactly how it happens.
