I'm going to file this one under the category of things I never thought I'd see printed in a major newspaper. Peter Wilby in todays Guardian offers up a thorough critique on the effects the neoliberal free trade agenda has had on democracy in general and more specifically the EU, where we have recently seen two Bankster led coups in Greece and Italy.
"The people of Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Ireland have already learned that they must accept programmes of austerity, reductions in employment protection and the sale of public assets to the private sector. If they haven't elected leaders willing to do what is necessary, unelected leaders will be imposed instead. The French and the Belgians know that they also must watch their step."
The EU crisis demonstrates that free trade has gone far enough:It's not just the European Union that needs a rethink – it's the whole world trade regime and its unelected overseers
