Blasphemy to criticise EU?

As someone who regularly speaks out against the undemocratic machinations of the European Commission, I have been waiting with interest for a visit from the Thought Police.

It is entirely possible that a spell in a psychiatric unit might do me the world of good (stop cheering at the back there).

Now, though, I have read that a top Spanish judge has suggested that open opposition to the EU could be dealt with in another way. A charge of blasphemy would sidestep all the trouble of dealing with people like me under common law.

Blasphemy! Crikey, I knew these people thought they were better than the rest of us, but to consider themselves deities is carrying things a bit far, isn't it? The way blasphemy was once punished is interesting, too. There were lots of choices, namely:

Imprisonment, branding, piercing of the tongue with a red hot poker, death, corporal punishment and any other 'orrible thing they could dream up.

Not even the unanswerable-to-anyone European Commission would go that far, would they? Are you quite sure? I will tell you what, those people scare the living daylights out of me!
