JEAN MONNET

Whilst we watch and hear what they say

As our politicians lead the way,

Towards a not quite in or out

As if they don't know what it's about;

Let's recall the words of Jean Monnet(**)

Of what was kept from us back in the day!

Chief architect and founding father

Of what many here now would rather

Leave - from market to European Union

Achieved by unholy stealthy communion - 

<(**)Pronounced Monnay - a French economist who was never elected to public office>

"Europe's nations should be guided towards the superstate without their people understanding what is

happening.  This can be accomplished by successive steps, each disguised as having an economic

purpose but which will eventually lead to a federation." (from a letter written 30/4/1952).

.......................................................................................................................................................................

That's why I say to Monsieur Monnet

Mon Ami - that's NOT the British way!

So - it's "Up yours, Jean" from all whom you'd betray

And "Up yours too" to those who do it to this day.

A resounding Hear ! Hear ! to that sentiment.
