According to the Guardian, Iceland is to be fast-tracked into the EU, due to the economic shitstorm they find themselves in.
Iceland will be put on a fast track to joining the European Union to rescue the small Arctic state from financial collapse amid rising expectations that it will apply for membership within months, senior policy-makers in Brussels and Reykjavik have told the Guardian.
Olli Rehn, the European commissioner in charge of enlargement, said: “The EU prefers two countries joining at the same time rather than individually. If Iceland applies shortly and the negotiations are rapid, Croatia and Iceland could join the EU in parallel. On Iceland, I hope I will be busier. It is one of the oldest democracies in the world and its strategic and economic positions would be an asset to the EU.”
Well it is important for the supranational dictatorship to swallow all of the remaining democracies in the region, seeing as the EU is about as democratic as the former Soviet Union, one can see where this is heading. Iceland had successfully stayed out of the Eurozone until now. The EU’s economy is contracting also and will drag member states (formally nation states) down with it. Funny how a bit of deliberate economic warfare and a little help from the Financial Oligarchy’s useful idiots can cause such a rapid change in events for a nation. But that isn’t all (my emphasis).
The conservative government in Reykjavik, in power for 18 years, collapsed this week, the first government to fall as a result of the financial meltdown which has wrecked the Icelandic currency, the krona, wiped out savings and pensions, required a massive IMF bailout, sparked unprecedented riots in Reykjavik, and forced the formation of a caretaker centre-left government until new elections can be held, probably on 9 May.
EU membership will be a central theme of the election campaign, with the social democrats – the senior partner in the coalition interim government with the anti-EU Left Greens – pushing to join the EU and to swap the krona for the single European currency as soon as possible.
Although the people rioting against the government because of economic mismanagement is expected, such events, if encouraged and directed, can be used to generate particular responses. In the Greek riots at the end of 2008, there have been reports of police dressed as rioters (agent provocateurs) put there to encourage violence and property damage. We also know that the ex-Italian President is on the record saying: “Provocateur Riots Then “Beat The Shit Out Of Protesters”
Former Italian President Francesco Cossiga has offered a solution to the Italian government in dealing with widespread demonstrations by students and teachers over a cut in state funding of education – use agent provocateurs to start riots and then have the police “beat the shit out of the protesters”.
Cossiga, former Italian President, Prime Minister, Minister of the Interior, and one of the founders of the Operation GLADIO covert intelligence unit, encouraged Silvio Berlusconi and current Minister of the Interior Robert Maroni to “do what I did when I was Minister of the Interior,” namely infiltrate what so far have been relatively peaceful demonstrations, radicalize them, start riots, then engender public support for a heavy-handed police response.
Problem-reaction-solution. Thesis+Antithesis=Synthesis. This could have easily been the case with the Iceland riots and now as a result of the government being dissolved, ministers are coming out of the woodwork claiming that “The krona is dead. We need a new currency. The only serious option is the euro.”
Though deeply indebted and in dire straits, the Icelandic economy is minuscule compared with the main EU member states and therefore unlikely to prove a destabilising force. Iceland has already secured a multibillion pound IMF loan and is unlikely to prove a drain on the EU budget.
In other words, Iceland is truly up shit creek. And the same thing is being planned for Britain. These constant bailouts are not supposed to help the economy, they are supposed to devalue the Pound with the plan to force Britain into the Euro. These bailouts also help the biggest companies avoid the contraction of the money supply, which results in lenders calling in loans. People losing their homes, smaller businesses going under etc. The same technique is being used in the United States. If you want to help the people, scrap the Income Tax and reduce public spending. But the opposite is happening.
From the Telegraph;
Jose Manuel Barroso, the commission president, said that his conversations with British politicians persuaded him that “the people who matter in Britain” are now thinking about euro membership in the wake of global economic and financial turmoil.
And this isn’t all. The EU, which is a socialist dictatorship has its eyes set on more British assets. Redistribution of wealth is the M.O. of communism to widen the gap between the ruling classes and everyone else.
The only thing that will stop this is action from the people who really matter.
