Off Plymouth Hoe this weekend, another great maritime battle will be played out, as the second stop for the Americas Cup World Series today reaches its semi-finals stage!
I have been privileged this week to be back in my native Devonshire and have the chance to witness first hand, the high-speed yacht racing that modern technology has driven to new heights, involving catamarans flying seven different national flags but crewed by athletes forming the cream of international competitive yacht racing from across the entire globe.
What a contrast this has proven when compared with the spineless, gutless and completely brainless leadership of the European Union, which has concurrently been staggering into an ever deeper crisis almost entirely caused by a flawed design, built mostly upon self-conceit, mutual bragging and hypocrisy! The EU is thereby slowly approaching its inevitable collapse.
Such a spectacle in the fresh air has provided me an escape from the computer keyboard, to observe teamwork, experience and local knowledge drive identical boats to widely different outcomes.
Now I must aside such excitement and with it the tranquil, still-remaining Devonshire countryside, to return to chronicling the painful end to my years of of blogging on the EU. Almost inevitably, corruption brings chaos in its wake, the demise of the common currency of the EU must expose the inherent design flaws of the EU itself and not be permitted to drive the former nations involved even further towards submission to the EU’s ever-growing, non-democratic tyranny!
Competition and co-operation between democratic nations breeds prosperity and attracts the cream of the world to participate with them. Democracy cannot be defended by bodies such as the EU or the UN!
