As Tony Blair prepares to go to Brussels to sell out the sovereignty of England, it would be wise to consider the case of a journalist who dared to question the integrity of EuroBrother:
Reporter following trail of corruption in EU arrested
By Ambrose Evans-Pritchard in Brussels
Police arrested a leading investigative journalist yesterday on the orders of the European Union, seizing his computers, address books and archive of files in a move that stunned Euro-MPs.
Hans-Martin Tillack, the Brussels correspondent for Germany’s Stern magazine, said he was held for 10 hours without access to a lawyer by the Belgian police after his office and home were raided by six officers.
‘They asked me to tell them who my sources were. I replied that was something I would never do. Now they have all my sensitive files, so I suppose they’ll find out anyway,’ he said last night. ‘The police said I was lucky I wasn’t in Burma or central Africa, where journalists get the real treatment,’ he added.
The lesson for Americans is this: NAFTA was the first step toward creating a trans-American union stretching from Alaska to Chile. Those who stand in the way of such a union will likely be treated like Herr Tillack.
