No wonder the EU is demanding £100billion from the UK for our Brexit payout. On top of the grotesque pensions pot it has set aside for its employee gravy train, it has, unbeknownst to the majority of taxpaying Brits, squandered a casual £47million in the last year on building a European House of History in Brussels – yes, the one that none of us asked for.
Eerily reminiscent of Berlin’s Reichstag, which was originally built to house the Imperial Diet of the German Empire, it is already making waves. Poland has taken offence at its most recent exhibition. This presents Poland, France and Ukraine as countries ‘complicit in the Holocaust’ while portraying Germany as a country that ‘cultivates’ the memory of the atrocity. How nice.
It’s not just the Poles who should be on their guard. Any more neo-classical EU monstrosities in the making could see Hitler’s dreams of Germania finally come true – in Brussels instead of Berlin. Just what the EU, its advocates insist, was necessary to protect us from.
