Exclamation Merkel/EPP nutjobs want to brainwash your children

Merkel backs call for EU school lessons to counter 'growing Euro-scepticism'

The German Chancellor wants "EU education in schools across Europe to prepare the next generation and to nurture a European approach"


School students should be given a "European Union education" in the classroom to tackle "ignorance" and growing public Euro-scepticism, according to an election manifesto signed by Angela Merkel and eight other of Europe's leaders.


The European People’s Party (EPP), the EU’s biggest political grouping, is convinced such a programme would improve the public image of Brussels, which has never been lower.


Its manifesto for May’s European elections calls for the introduction of “EU education in schools across Europe in order to prepare the next generation for future challenges and to nurture a European approach”.


“Europe has been in crisis for more than five years. Many people, especially the young, do not foresee a positive future. Euroscepticism is growing,” the manifesto said.


“United, we can make sure that young people look at the future with optimism, hope and confidence.”
Chancellor Merkel is a “strong supporter” of the proposal, said officials, because she believes lessons about the EU “contribute to a common European identity and knowledge about history”.

Rather than scaling back the EU, the EPP will campaign around a five-year programme that will aim to transform the EU into “a genuine political union”.

The German Chancellor and the leaders of Ireland, Poland, Spain, Hungary, Portugal, Greece, Cyprus and Latvia launched the manifesto were in Dublin on Friday.

The call for a federal Europe and European school lessons will put the Prime Minister at odds with the German Chancellor, who is regarded as his key ally and further isolate Britain at a time when other EU countries are seeking closer integration.

In stark contrast to Germany and the bloc of EPP countries wanting "political union", Mr Cameron is seeking to repatriate powers from Brussels and last year the Government cut references to the EU from the National Curriculum because the lessons were seen as politically biased.

Syed Kamall, leader of Britain's Conservative MEPs, said the proposal showed that the Prime Minister had been right to pull the Tories out of the EPP, to set up their own grouping, while he was leader of the opposition five years ago.

“Schools should be equipping students with the skills and knowledge they will need to create a globally competitive Europe fit for the 21st Century - not navel-gazing over a 1950s vision of what Europe means,” he said.

Jean-Claude Juncker, the former prime minister of Luxembourg, was chosen by the EPP on Friday to be its leading candidate during the EU elections and as contender to be the next president of the European Commission in October this year.

Mr Juncker, 59, is a passionate supporter of the idea of a “United States of Europe” and chaired meetings of the eurozone at the height the EU single currency’s debt crisis until he resigned as Luxembourg’s leader amid a scandal over illegal phone-tapping.

“I am totally in favour. The knowledge of Europe has to be deepened in school programmes,” he said. “There is ignorance about the basics and this was evident during the so-called euro crisis.”

In 2011, Mr Juncker courted controversy when he was caught on tape saying that he “had to lie” in his role as chairman of the eurozone and that important economic decisions could only be taken in “dark secret rooms”.

"I'm ready to be insulted as being insufficiently democratic, but I want to be serious," he said on a video recorded by the EUobserver website. "When it becomes serious, you have to lie."

Nigel Farage, the leader of Ukip, accused the alliance of European leaders of wanting "to squeeze children into a one-size-fits-all scheme of thought".

"After destroying national economies and losing the political argument the EU thought police now want the mind of your children in their hands," he said.

She should sort out the school system here first, no two schools teach the same curriculum and some qualifications aren't even recognized from state to state.

Is the Sinn Féin/IRA sympathiser really going on about "cult like"?

You guys are starting to really creep me out.

Socialists are internationalist, not nationalist, Sinn Féin/IRA are national socialists?

Wait. The underlying thuggery, the mob rule, the paranoia, the twee idealised version of Irish culture, the railing against those that betrayed us to foreign powers, the blind faith in the leader.

All sounds very familiar.

Run a hot bath and you'll feel better.

And thank those socialist commie bastards that you're not paying through the nose for it.
