Vladimir Konstantinovich Bukovsky , now UKIP member, is a leading member of the dissident movement of the 1960s and 1970s in Russia – Writer, neurophysiologist, and political activist, he now lives in Cambridge.
In the Video, Bukovsky points out the similarities between the European Union and the Soviet Union
(1) Both run by unelected officials who are unaccountable to anyone.
(2) Unelected officials appoint each other, meet in secret and cannot be sacked by the people.
(3) Both Unions were based on the concept that such a union was necessary to avoid war between the states.
(4) In the USSR, Gulags were used to control those who disagreed. In the EU, political correctness is used to control people. Anyone who gives an opinion contrary to the ‘accepted’ wisdom is written off by the media and established political parties as mad, insane, violent and fascist.
(5) Thousands of highly paid officials lead luxurious lifestyles, separate from the masses, and are immune from prosecution.
(6) A new flag and anthem replaces nation states.
(7) The EU is being created by coercion and economic bullying.
(8) Both unions are corrupt and incapable of reform.
