PLAYING THE EU'S REGIONAL GAME
by Robert Theobold
It is sad to see Bedford Borough and Bedfordshire County Council competing to become the unitary or EU sub-regional authority for the north of the county. In attempting to destroy each other they are playing the EUs game. The EUs top-down system of local government consists of Region, (eg East of England Region) Unitary authority or sub-region, (eg Luton) and Parish Council (sub-sub region). It is answerable to Brussels and has stealthily stolen from people any real power to influence their local affairs.
EU regionalism continues to weaken our Westminster parliament. Why should we put up with this dictatorial EU local government system when EU membership now costs Britain £26 million per day and our trade deficit with the EU has grown by 245% in the last 8 years?
Swiss Studies show that voluntary work for the authorities in smaller communities is still very common and that social integration, contentment, political competence and confidence are more intense in them than in bigger communities. Smaller communities in Switzerland have livelier and more direct democracy.
Small communities also have financial advantages. Costs and debt per resident are clearly lower in regions with many small communities. Switzerlands higher standard of living shows that decentralised, small size structures do not obstruct economic development. In fact Swiss small-scale, federalist and direct democratic structures would cease to exist if the dead hand of EU bureaucracy was on them. (www.current concerns.ch)

do not want war, but the spirit of subordination under the orders of their superiors
gets them used to obeying and ordering. In this way the large political and economic
structures that rule the world today can pursue goals other than the common good.

Notes on "Communist" Councils in New Zealand
Colonel B.S. Turner, C Eng., F.I. Mech. E.
Turner was asked to comment on a paper by Mr. John Christian titled "Communist"
Councils in New Zealand.
first perusing "Communist" Councils in New Zealand many individuals
whose superficial perceptions of national and international affairs are largely
cultivated in pubs, clubs, golf club bars, and by the controlled communications
media with its array of "talking heads", may well catch their breath
at the opening paragraphs and the apparent enormity of the statements therein.
With the advantage over the potential sceptics and uninitiated, of 20 years of intensive research and analysis, I am confident that the content and claims of "Communist" Councils in New Zealand are essentially correct. I have checked the details from my own archives and standard references, such as the Encyclopaedia Britannica on Fabianism and the Internationals, Who's Who, Fabian Society publications, annual reports of banks and corporations and so on.
Jane Stoddart  and Rose L. Martin  have published important and definitive works on Socialism -- which has a clear international ideology, clearly reflected in "Communist" Councils in New Zealand . It is important, in view of the magnitude and profound implications of the subject, to amplify some of the content in certain respects. However, it is first necessary to add a strong note of caution in the case of the British Monarchy.
Majesty a Constitutional Monarch
Some palpable Nonsense
images of Her Majesty personally involved at the centre of a global financial
network. Inevitably she has to move in such circles. Surrounded by discreet courtiers
and advisers, the Monarchy is inherently wealthy and must function within the
common global economic model - as does the rest of society at all levels.
At the heart of "Communist" Councils in New Zealand lies Power and its control in the progressive centralisation of that Power on a global scale. Arguably, this situation can only be challenged meaningfully by the mass of an informed and independent middle class. Within this scenario the ultimate control is that of Money Power. This we need to consider before examining the organisations and mechanisms involved in the exercise of that Power.
economy is fundamentally bankrupt
At the same time the virtually unregulated creation of money by the private banking system has proceeded apace, thus increasing corporate as well as individual and government liabilities. Inherent in this debt-based system of money creation is the fundamental principle that debt chases its tail as an insatiable overhead. Public services, pensions, mortgages, student and other private debt are fast approaching a state of financial meltdown. The sell-off of capital assets -- the "family silver"- through privatisation, private finance initiatives (PFI), sale and lease back of public property are doomed to failure in the long term as the capital accrued is inevitably dissipated to service the debt.
accurately seen as a power-grid
whom do we owe these debts?
Over the years
countless books have been written on the money "question". As early
as 1876 American industrialist, William A Berkey, wrote of the power of money
with specific reference to the involvement of the Rothschilds during and after
the Civil War of 1861-63 .
this Power, and how is it exercised?
A leading advocate of the Social Credit Movement,
Major C.H. Douglas, who had been closely involved with the logistics of the 1914-18
War, also identified this link. Consequently, exponents of monetary and economic
reform have often been vilified by accusations of anti-semitism.
saw the formation of the (later Royal) Institute of International Affairs (RIIA),
under the auspices of Lord Milner, This was followed by its closely associated
group in the United States; the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). From this
was spawned affiliated organisations around the world, such as the Institute of
Pacific Affairs and the Round Table Groups. (In Australia the Australian Institute
of International Affairs
A study of this unelected elite network reveals the cross linkage of these Global Powerbrokers. The record also reveals the conterminous relationship between Socialism, International Fabian Socialism and International Finance Capitalism. We should also remember that the second "S" in USSR stood for "Socialist". The Marxist World Revolution to destroy the Existing Order of the Bourgeoisie (In the 19th Century as owners of the land and the means of production), included the destruction of the Nation State (Nationalism), the family, religion, morality and the elimination of private property and inheritance.
In 1931 Professor Arnold Toynbee, Director of Studies at the RIIA, delivered an address in Copenhagen, in which he declared the aim of "a deliberate and sustained and concentrated effort to impose limitations upon sovereignty and the independence of the fifty or sixty local sovereign independent states which at present partition the habitable surface of the earth and divide the political allegiance of mankind".
On 19th November 1937, the Fabian Nicholas Murray Butler addressed a banquet in London with the words, "Communism is the instrument with which the financial world can topple national governments and then erect a world government with a world police and world money".
By chance I acquired a copy of the "personal and strictly confidential" Report of a Bilderberg Conference which took place in Canada in 1968. Papers tabled at that Conference reflected clearly the coming process of globalisation to a stage when corporations would become more powerful than sovereign national governments. In the 1970's C. Gordon Tether, a respected financial journalist and founder of the "Lombard" column in the Financial Times, began to expose the pressure for centralisation in a European Economic Community, the influence of the Bilderberg Group, and the power of the international financial markets. With a change of editor he found his work increasingly censored until he was removed from his column altogether. 
When violent revolution -- the "Armed Struggle" of Communist Doctrine -- failed to take off in Western Europe, the revolution took the form of the Ideological Struggle. Thus we had the formation of the Institute for Social Research, the "Frankfurt School" in Frankfurt-am-Main, Germany in 1923. 
I have been at pains not to stress the well-catalogued involvement of Jews in this commentary in fairness to the wider Jewish Community as a whole. But here we had three such; Max Horkheimer, Theodor Adorno and Herbert Marcuse. Thus began work to destabilise tradition, morality, religion and the family -- Gramsci's "long march through the institutions". This has shaped society as it is today at the very highest levels. One element of this has been Political Correctness (P.C.), which has progressively constrained freedom and independence of thought and expression. Dr. Frank Ellis, formerly lecturer in Soviet Studies at Sheffield University, is himself a target of the Politically Correct attack. In the Winter, 2002, edition of The Journal of Social, Political and Economic Studies, he published a definitive paper "Political Correctness and the Ideological Struggle: From Lenin and Marx to Marcuse and Foucault". In this he revealed the continuity of Marxism-Leninism in the process of social and moral destabilisation.
What is the state
of play today?
What is certain in the United Kingdom is that the present 'New' Labour Government and its associates and sponsors function no differently to the elite, corrupt and privileged Soviet Nomenklatura. In half a century of wealth redistribution, the Middle Classes have expanded in a material sense rather than culturally or socially. The wealth producing, professional, managerial and academic element is beleaguered, increasingly emasculated intellectually by a continual application of the Marxist Class War -- the Ideological Struggle. Economic slavery involves individual debt standing now at £1,000,000,000,000. Thom Hartmann writes of a comparable situation in the United States 
Reference is rarely made to the bloated super-rich of off-shore tax havens, vast profits and bonuses bled from the financial markets, or the land-owning and professional elites in that grey area between the mass of the ordinary Middle Classes and the wealthy "upper" Middle Classes, and the Upper Classes.
Similarly, reference is rarely made in this context to the grossly over-paid celebrity culture of the media, entertainment, fashion, advertising and sporting industries. No reference is made to exclusive access to the best education and healthcare and other resources open only the wealthy elite, leaving the ordinary Middle Classes exposed to the Class War.
'Demand' engineered by money
On the 9th April,
2007 The Guardian newspaper reported a Ministry of Defence Study of possible
future commitments "Revolution, flash mobs, and brain chips. A grim vision
of the future". The findings concluded that the Middle Classes could one
day become a Marxist type "revolutionary class" against the growing
gap between the Middle Classes, the super-rich and the urban underclass. We should
