Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.

Replacing state with corporate rule is the ultimate wet dream of plutocrats. Then they can have untrammelled power and literally "own" people.

One $ one vote is always more advantageous to the rich than that annoying one person one vote whereby even their office cleaner has the same rights as they do.  So anything that can be done to weaken those taxing monsters known as states must be done. Why let them redistribute your hard earned wealth?

Turn citizens into employees and they become much more manageable, and better still, you can fire them if you feel like it.  

So break up the European Union, split up the bigger states.  Turn "faceless bureaucrats" into the issue rather than corporate power.

Rupert Murdoch was once asked why he was so anti-EU. "That's easy" he said. "When I want something done, all I have to do is ring 10 Downing street, and it gets done. When I ring Brussels they listen politely and then completely ignore me."

He might have added "what we need is more democratic accountability. To ME."!
