It’s hard not to conclude that something weird is going on in Europe and the European Union at the moment. Not yet reported by the BBC, but the Parliament of the Czech Republic has just voted to enshrine in its Constitution (subject to Senate approval) the right for its citizens to carry arms. It’s done this as a direct response to (a) ‘the security situation [in Europe] constantly worsening’ and (b) an EU Directive prohibiting certain weapons in EU member states. The guy tipped to become the next Czech Prime Minister – Andrej Babis – has said, ‘We have to fight for what our ancestors built here. If there will be more Muslims than Belgians in Brussels, that’s their problem. I don’t want that here. They won’t be telling us who should live here.’ Can he say that? Is that not a hate crime? I shall alert the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police. Anyway, Frau Merkel decides who comes and goes within the European Union – which includes your country, Mr Bebis, so you need to wind your neck in and get with the migration message.
Talking of Frau Merkel and the migration message, I note that Frankfurt has become the first German city where natives are in the minority. Keep up the good work Angela! Not sure where this is heading in terms of peace in Europe, but obviously the Czechs aren’t too impressed.
Does the BBC report this stuff, or is it fake news? Indeed, is it wonderful news? I’ve no idea. We should be told.
