By trawling the internet so they can stamp on the opinions of those who disagree with the EU’s masterplan, supposedly neutral civil servants will become willing participants in a disgraceful and self-serving exercise of naked political power to pervert the expression of free will in next year’s European elections.
As secret documents seen by the Daily Express spell out, the trolls of Brussels will target countries where there has been “a surge in Euroscepticism”.
Or to put it more simply: Britain. The aim will be to convince us the answer is not less Europe but more Europe. Your opinion counts for nothing. They will try to brainwash you with scare stories and when that doesn’t work the tactics will become dirtier and more threatening.
And a problem for Brussels, as it would signal the possible collapse of its whole house of cards if other countries put their people’s wishes ahead of the greed and egos of politicians.
