New World Order *UPDATED*

Britain, which has shown a certain lack of spine when it comes to the Islamists on its shores, nevertheless stood up to Al Qaeda representative Abu Qatata.  Britain, however, is no longer a sovereign nation.  It handed over its sovereignty to the EU, which gets the final say in matters.  And the EU thinks it was grossly unfair to prevent Qatada from getting his money:

European judges today overturned an order freezing the assets of Abu Qatada, the radical Muslim cleric, on the ground that its implementation breached his fundamental rights.

The ruling in the European Court of Justice is a further blow to the Government’s counter terror policies after the Law Lords’ judgment that suspects held under control orders must be given details of the allegations against them.

Qatada, once described as Osama bin Laden’s “spiritual ambassador” in Europe, was added to a United Nations sanctions blacklist freezing the funds of associates of Bin Laden, al-Qaeda or the Taleban.

The ruling today means that Qatada, currently being held in a top security prison pending deportation, will regain access to his accounts and any other assets in two months and ten days if the British Government does not appeal.

Even if one assumes the hypothetical that Abu Qatada is merely a British resident with bad ideas, and that Britain shouldn’t have deprived him of his money, I find it tragic that Britain is no longer a sovereign nation.  Despite her stupidity in some things (the slave trade, letting her stubbornness lose America, siding with the Arabs in the Middle East, imperialism), she still had a shining moment as a light among nations (abandoning the slave trade, advancing the Enlightenment, holding out against Napoleonic and Nazi hegemony), and it hurts to see her as nothing more than a European vassal state.

UPDATE:  By the way, will there still be an England when the women are swathed in mandatory Burkhas or when a Belgian bureaucrat sits at 10 Downing Street?

    For me the most attractive women have always been the ones with a friendly smile and a cheerful outlook on life. Body proportions never meant much to me so long as they reflected a person who had sufficient self-discipline to take reasonably good care of herself.

    Oops! I meant this comment for the other post about how 50% of the population should be very happy. Sorry.

    Yes, of course there will always be an England. It’ll just be called Oceania, Book.

    The Spitfires in this picture are Mark 1 or 2, of the Battle of Britain variety. It makes me very sad. Unfortunately, the British shall no longer “fight on the beaches and on the landing grounds”. I am afraid “We shall never surrender” is not in their vocabulary any more.

    Britain surrendered to socialism right after Churchill defended Britain in WWII. This ended up with Churchill being booted from the Prime Minister spot.

    Britain surrendered a long time ago. It just so happens that you are seeing the final consequences of cowardice in the face of the enemy. It took awhile to manifest, but manifest it did.
