European rulings are damaging our country
HAVE you noticed how the price of some goods has almost doubled in the last year?
If you query this you are told 'due to the increase of fuel etc we have to pass it on'. Really, how much longer do we have to put up with this 'excuse'? Now we see once again, with winter looming, that electricity and gas prices are set to rise and put some people, particularly pensioners, at risk.
Many will be people who have worked hard all their lives; some may have fought for you and I in various conflicts and who I feel deserve a darn sight better treatment than they are receiving now. Eat, heat or die will be main issues this winter for some of them.
Why did the Government see fit to sell our main fuel suppliers to foreign interests? Oh yes, money and profit! Now I read that China is now eyeing up investing in Britain. Where will this end? As for foreign aid, why does this continue when we are becoming a Third World nation in how some of us have to survive?

I believe the European Union is laying down rules that are to the detriment of this country and its way of life. To me, the green issue will mean the actual loss of hundreds of jobs, leaving even more people to claim benefits. Where is the sense in all this? Are the likes of France and Germany so quick to meet demands made by the EU? Somehow I don't think so.
As for immigration, France has shown that it will not tolerate the influx and will despite, the so called fear of fines, will deport people in their hundreds. We in Britain on the other hand seem to roll over and take all the rules and conditions that the EU sees fit to enforce upon us.
This country is really short of money and in debt, yet we apparently give away billions in aid to countries which do not need it, such as India, Ecuador and Argentina.
In my opinion, it is time to remove the blinkers and look after our own – then maybe we will be able to rise above the mess of debt this country finds itself in.
Charity should always begin at home, not in the EU and all it stands for: which to us is debt, rising costs and the loss of jobs.
