Truly remarkable and revealing news has reached us about Nigel Farage, which – yet again - endorses the opinions of those who have labelled him a collaborator and a politically-correct safety valve.
The patriotic Group within the European Parliament is the ENF and it comprises patriotic national parties such as the Front National from France, the FPO from Austria and the Vlams Belang from Flanders.
The ENF has just formulated a Motion of Censure on the EU Commission – see below article. For the Motion to succeed, it is necessary to obtain the support of one tenth of the Members of the EU Parliament, ie the signatures of 76 MEPs. This will allow both a debate and a vote on the proposal, which refers to the negligence and incompetence of the Commission in terms of its ineffective immigration policies and the porous borders that surround the EU.
The Motion is significant, not merely from a symbolic viewpoint. It demonstrates to voters who have supported the election of patriotic MEPs that their representatives are working on behalf of the public, to oppose both the Commission and the flood of Third World aliens into the EU, who threaten the cultural heritage of the nations involved and also that of Europe.
The ENF Group possesses 38 MEPs. Farage’s EFDD Group possesses 45 MEPs, making 83 in total.
Farage, who never loses a second to criticise the Commission in his many speeches and who claims to oppose mass immigration has refused to sign the Motion.
In the EFDD Group is the Italian Five Star Movement, a party that is so left wing in many of its policies that it was originally in negotiations to join the Greens in the Parliament. Nonetheless, the Motion of Censure - were it to enjoy Farage’s backing - would have every chance of success in attaining the necessary signatures, were he to endorse it and actively support it. This, he has deliberately refused to do. The Motion’s future now depends upon the support of individual MEPs in the EDF and those outside it, in the Non-Aligned Group and elsewhere.
What does this astonishing development tell us about Farage? It clearly reveals that Farage is a puff-balloon of self-generated hot air, inflated by the international mass media.
As many analysts of the political scene have previously warned, Farage is influenced – amongst other things - by an uncontrollable ego, difficulty in working with any other organisation unless he controls it, and an incapacity to play second fiddle to the more effective and genuine opposition leader, Marin Le Pen.
More important, Farage is not a genuine opponent of the forces that threaten the identity of the British and European peoples; he is complicit with those processes.
Farage Sabotages Marine Le Pen and the ENF Group
During the late Summer, Front National leader, Marine Le Pen, attracted sufficient support to form a recognised Parliamentary Group, which must comprise MEPs in sufficient numbers from no less than seven EU nations. Inter alia, this provides the leader of the Group with a position on the front bench in the Parliament.
In the EU Parliament the Conference of Presidents is the governing body responsible for the organisation of Parliament, its administrative matters and agenda. It consists of the President of Parliament and the chairmen of the political groups (who may arrange to be represented by a member of their group).
Following the successful formation of the ENF, it was expected that Marine Le Pen would join the Front Bench in the Parliament. This very matter was the subject of deliberation at a Conference meeting. Farage did not attend. Instead, his appointed representative abstained from the vote. Marine Le Pen must therefore conduct her business from the backbenches, well away from the egoist, Farage, who sits on the front bench.
We leave readers to draw their own conclusions from this sordid little incident.

Motion of censure on the Commission by the European Parliament
The European Parliament,
– having regard to Article 17(8) of the Treaty on European Union, Article 234 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and Article 106a of the Euratom Treaty,
– having regard to Rule 119 of its Rules of Procedure,
- whereas, according to Frontex, the total number of migrants who crossed the EU’s external borders in the first ten months of this year rose to about 800,000; whereas the real figures might even be higher, as the UNHCR counted more than 643,000 migrants via the Mediterranean alone between 1 January and 20 October and the Commission estimates a total of 3 million migrants will have entered the EU before the end of 2016;
- whereas the executive director of Frontex has warned the German government already in March 2015 about the coming influx of 1,000,000 migrants;
- whereas the magnitude of the current immigration flow is not sustainable, is leading to social disruption in several Member States, is causing tensions between Member States and is posing a threat to security;
- whereas the compulsory redistribution plan has only proven to be a means to side-step the Dublin Regulation;
- whereas the Schengen Treaty has become null and void due to the loss of control of the external borders; whereas the Commission refuses to acknowledge this fact by reprimanding Member States protecting their internal and external borders;
- whereas the Commission has allowed and even encouraged Frontex to move away from border management towards search and rescue operations, thereby becoming part of the modus operandi of people smugglers;
- whereas this evolution has actively encouraged illegal immigration instead of curbing it;
- whereas the Commission is planning to outsource the protection of part of the eastern borders to Turkey; whereas it is willing to pay a yearly sum of EUR 3 billion to Turkey in return,
- whereas the Turkish government has proven to be notoriously unreliable when it comes to the management of its borders; whereas it increasingly violates the Copenhagen criteria, which should lead to a suspension of the accession talks;
- whereas the Chancellor of Germany is not presiding the Council and has no mandate from the EU institutions to negotiate the admission of 2 million migrants by the European Union;
- whereas the Chancellor of Germany and the Commission are linking this cooperation to a relaunch of Turkey’s accession process by opening the economic and monetary chapters as a step towards visa liberalisation;
- whereas public opinion in the Member States is opposed to and worried by the current level of immigration; whereas the Commission is ignoring this, thereby even increasing the democratic deficit of the European Union;
- Confirms not to have any confidence in the European Commission;
- Censures the Commission;
3 Instructs its President to forward this motion of censure to the President of the Council and the President of the Commission and to notify them of the result of the vote on it in plenary.
