The Real Face of the European Union

The Real Face of the European UnionThe EU has been sold to Britain as our best hope for the future. But behind the scenes, has another, more unsettling agenda been unfolding? The European Economic Community (EEC) began for Britain as a free-trade agreement in 1972.

Today’s European Union is well on its way to becoming a federal superstate, complete with one currency, one legal system, one military, one police force – even its own national anthem.

In this shocking new documentary featuring EU insiders and commentators, independent author Phillip Day covers the history and goals of the European Union, as well as the disturbing, irrevocable implications this new government has for every British citizen.

Whether the viewer is for or against Britain’s participation, this film asks the troubling questions the mainstream media has refused to confront.

    Interesting Documentary but not informative enough.

    worst documentary ever seen. It is completely uninformed and unbalanced.
    The argument that Britain's sovereignty was taken away against her will and was completely misled by the EU is complete nonsense.
    As every country had her past, so had Britain, not so long ago the largest empire of the world, that also had a control upon other European nations. Today, those days are over.
    It is up to Britain, and to Britain alone, to decide whether they want to be part of a common European project, a project that indeed is pooling sovereignty to an international level, and indeed makes it possible for 'Brussels' to say Britain what to do. But saying that this all is a 'silent taking over' by the continent of Britain, that this all is a conspiracy, etc. is completely untrue. The European Union is in essence democratic, what Brussels decides, is what is decided by the Council of Ministers. Ministers of Britain.
    But if Britain really thinks that is not true, that this is clearly a conspiracy against them, then it is up to them to decide whether they still want to be a part of that. The Treaty of Lisbon has created the explicit legal possibility to completely withdraw yourself as a country from the European Union, so if Britain really feels treated unjust and betrayed, they can deliberately decide to take an exit, and that possibility will always remain.
    In short, it is up for the British people to decide whether they want to be part of a clear and transparant European intergovernmental, but also supranational, institution. Saying that Britain is being betrayed and conquered seems to me not more than a symptom of some people having difficulties to cope with a Britain that is now a nation-state and no longer an empire.
    Finally, one of Britain's best political scientists, Simon Hix, has written an excellent book about the political system of the EU and the several theories of integration. I would advise everyone to read his book, if you really believe the outline of the documentary.

    I'll balanced and deliberately misleading. The least biased source on this is UKIPs Nigel Farage (a brilliant politician) and he leads an Anti EU party!

    Some of the criticisms are valid, and there are issues with expanding EU power, but the idea of a loss of control of the armed forces, under EUFOR, is frankly ludicrous. As a War and Security Student at a leading university, I can state with certainty that not only is that not the purpose of EUFOR, but it will never be its purpose, and indeed its legal structure does not allow it!

    Coming soon to your country, too …

  8. Ubercritter

    biased, uninformative, disengaged; stupid,in a word.

  9. Ubercritter

    i am anti-eu myself, but only because the more layers of government we have leads to more "noise" getting into communication between the lowest and the highest parts of the democratic structure, the lowest here being the citizens,and the highest being their democratically elected servants. but this is counteracted in a way by the pooling of resources, and the greater security it has. if only we could get rid of war and starvation entirely, without needing these structures.

  10. Siiri Reinla

    there may be a lot of corruption going on in EU but on the other hand, what other option is there. the era of the national countries is over and the era of the great alliances like UN, EU and OPEC has come. Britain or no other Europe country can expect to fight alone against such superpowers as USA or China.

  11. Gary V

    wise words my friend ,very wise words.

  12. Gary V

    Yet another biased & misguiding doc by the anti-Europe brigade. Complete BS.

  13. NoWorldGovernmant

    @Gary V and other EU supporters.
    Just because of your comments, I'll watch these documentaries.
    Your comments sounds biased and misguided. We need it to defend ourselves against USA and China? Christ dudes!

    Your attitudes are more dangerous that naivity and stupidity.
    Have you looked at the EU agenda or are you indoctrinated mainstrem viewers? You may like the idea of loosing your sovereignty and your freedom, but I will sure as hell fight for mine.

    Where you might see freedom and security, I see bondage and fascism.
    The emergence of an economic world government is right at our frontsteps and you embrace and defend this future?

    I live in Europe and see the downfall of nations. I see nations raped by the UN and IMF and people suffering dearly for it. Banksters raping and plundring with any remorse, because all that matters to these institutions are profit and power.

    More surveillance, more regulations, less freedom, more terror, more war and more greed and obtuse behaviour.

    Higher taxes, lower wages, staggering unemployment and nations, which are forced to sell out their assets to multinational companies..Codeword: Privatization and free market...Yeah right. Unrestricted and unregulated business opportunities for big companies.

    It got NOTHING to do with a global community and equal opportunity, but everything to do with global domination.

    Anyway---Keep on commenting the flicks...I'll keep on watching the documentaries you don't like.

  14. jack_reaver

    I find it interesting when the speaker talks about the military under EU control, but it forgets to mention that britain's military is already under control by outsiders, the brit's forces do what US wants, Obama says, the brits follow

  15. Rocky Racoon

    It will only make it easier for us when we throw the capitalist class to the lions and all this infrastructure will already be built for a unified socialist world government when we turn this earth back into the Eden it was meant to be. That is the good part about it-on the otherhand these struggles have to take place on national terrains as well as we all deal with our own bourgeosie. Occupy the Planet.

  16. Nick Boragina

    This belongs in the conspiracy theory section.

  17. TrutherSeeker55

    N Boragina - it is not a theory it is fact - ergo does not fit conspiracty theory

  18. Petr Šimon

    I do not mind criticism of the EU, but this documentary is a totall BS. No one forced GB to enter the EU, in fact France vetoed its entrance twice. (The EU would be better off GB anyway) I though I will see some constructive objection about the EU but after 20 min. relized it is a waste of time.

  19. Mark Rankin

    This "documentary" is nothing more than lies and propaganda by Nigel Farrell and his cronies. I gave up after the tirade on Churchill. Was it not Churchill who gave the United States of Europe in 1946?

  20. John

    For anyone smart enough there are always ways to go around laws and constitutions, the rulers of britain are men like everyone else, they have weaknesses that can be exploited by anyone seeking to use their power in their favour... Never stop asking questions, the moment you do is when they stab you in the back, And althought the allegations in the doc sound a little crazy, they can happen, and if it CAN happen, it's reason enough for you to take it seriously.

  21. Anne Mullett

    The real destruction of the Magna Carta, people are being led down the garden path.

  22. Anca Tiu

    this video is a depiction of the shelfish part of the human being. why is so bad sharing with the others at the european level? and why it wasn't at the colonial level? a nation can make us of her freewill and leave Europe.

  23. CollectivistCFR

    It has a few good points but misses the point. The author really needs to check it's history books. It paints Britain as an innocent bystander in all of this when history shows Britain has had some bad parts to play aswell. The bigger issue is the quest for a one world government. The part about the armies of the European countries becoming a 'European Standing Army' doesn't make sense and is untrue. The UN (Daddy EU) will contain the worlds armies as more and more countries sign up to American Democracy. The good thing for Britain is that we don't have a written constitution which we believe is God, and therefore we can't be 'played' as easy. I would urge people not to watch this film, but to instead do a little digging of your own. Effect and CAUSE people. Follow the money....

  24. Nicolas Chamberlain

    No, the English are fearing the end of the nation-states; their nation-states, and let's be honest that is the case. The EU is not transparant. If they were the didn't revoke all the 'NO's' that were given by several states after the plan for a European constitution; they only changed it in the Lisboa treaty. The EU doesn't care about democracy, it's an ideal by the elite for the elite.

  25. noswad

    "The EU would be better off GB anyway" does not make sense, if you mean better off without then your wrong, GB are one of the biggest contributors to the EU. I hope we get the vote to leave the EU as GB would be better off without the EU

  26. Goran Georgiev

    Holy s*it dude, you are British and you know so very little about your own constitutional framework? The statement that Britain has no written constitution is absolutely ridiculous and legally wrong - Britain does have a codified constitution, the only major difference to other Western countries being that it is not contained within a single standing document but within several acts of parliament, all of which combined hold the constitutional law of GB. This just goes to show how dangerously influential propaganda movies with set political goals can be (like the one above) due to people's natural ignorance of their own country's political and social status.

    And no, the constitutional basis of GB does not contain the word 'god' anywhere.

  27. Ev

    Incorrect. Britain's Constitution is NOT codified, yes it does contain many acts from parliament, but it is also built on common law and conventions. No aspect of it enjoys supreme authority - only parliament is sovereign.

  28. Erban

    That's exactly what an immigrant apparatchik would say, Its our lands and not the Elite and their labourers cast.

  29. Erban

    Those who deny the evil are either too scared to think about it being evil or those doing the evil, those who accept it are too weak, and those who are against the evil are angry.

  30. Erban

    The very B******* Churchill fought during the war are running his project, Germany will always rise to our fall and we will always rise to their injustice.

  31. Erban

    Well to your logic the Warsaw pact and the Axis were great alliances, all the UN has done is sell stories to third world countries to immigrate to the First world just so companies can access their natural resources. OPEC is just a myth anyway.

  32. Erban

    Good idea but the new world government will be Neo-Fascistic in ideology and it will exploit everything and everyone that they can get their hands on. True socialism is being altered to the elites advantage just so they can reshape society to their advantage.

  33. Brgs

    This is obviously a propaganda film sponsored by UKIP - tailored to encourage anti-European sentiments with docu-style fact-mis-representation (underlaid with a dooom-and-gloom style score). If it wasn't so sad it would almost be funny. What is most shameful though is that the BBC promotes this (no words!) nonsense on its website.. #BBC

  34. Inga

    Hugely important objections were raised. May be after 20 min of film, so you missed it? The fact that each country's elected government can not set own laws and change own interest rates to manage own economy. Member countries are governed by corrupt EU bureaucrats. Those are quite the points raised I think.

  35. Documentary Enthusiast

    One of the worst so called "documentaries" I have ever seen. An absurd waste of money that is nothing more than a bunch of wacko conspiracy theorists trying to twist history to be a big plot against them because things didn't go the way they wanted. Obvious tripe. The only people who could rate this at all positively have made up their mind about the EU before they went it to view it. Garbage all around for garbage minds.
