EU thread on deacts disappeared

Recommended Posts

Been following the thread about the EU deact proposals but all of a sudden disappeared or pulled from the site. Any reason or did someone complain to stop such idle chatter or has an EU sneaked in a law to ban criticism of the great EU republic and its most obeadiant servants who have gone further to implement it upon us.

I wonder the same, it seems freedom of speech has been banned everywhere even here :D This law change is probably one of the biggest threats to the military scene we will see yet it has been wiped from discussion.

A couple of posts were removed after complaints from members regarding politics being brought into the thread, it seems there a has been a forum glitch and the whole thread has disappeared.. It was not removed deliberately.

 

Any queries please send a PM to one of the team..

Surely when "politics" threaten our hobby then we have a right to discuss it ? As the whole deactivation situation has been manufactured by the EU and this countries government, it is obviously going to be an issue to people. The truth is politics are out to destroy a legitimate law abiding hobby.

I was talking to some of the guys at the Mapledurham show, 99.9% are going to vote out only one dim one wasn't sure. Only got have to have a Ali ackbar supporter buy a armoured truck on milweb or from Withams and use it to pursue his hobby ie run over a crowd or use it to protect himself or use it as a larger version of a exploding vest then anything green on wheels and tracks will go the same way as deacts and this site won't exist only for memories. More than ever politics plays a part in our hobby because at any minute at the stroke of a pen you could easily lose your prized possession. It only took two people from the EU benches to propose and create this directive. A few years ago I would agree that politics had no place in the military vehicle world but now it gets worse by the day it's a time when you have to keep looking over your shoulder all the time. As for some members complaining, they would certainly complain if there was directives imposed on their vehicles as you see with deacts lobbying seems to fall on deaf ears even more the case when we are fully committed to Europe.

 

Unfortunately there is an us and them attitude in many military clubs, those that embrace the living history/re-enactment side and those interested solely in the vehicles. Many people here care nothing over the latest EU deactivation law and as long as it doesn't affect them that will be the case. As you say this is just the start, there are already whispers of possible law changes to prohibit civilian use of ex military kit including vehicles, I believe it is already the case in some countries. The MVT has done nothing to oppose these latest law changes as in their words "they are a vehicle club", this site seems the same. Well when it affects them ALL it will be too late, if the weaponry side disappears from shows it WILL affect attendances, dealers and vehicle prices. Many people love the living history side of this hobby when it goes shows such as Pickering, War and Peace etc will die. No doubt this post will be REMOVED but hey ho we need to stand side by side on this POLITICAL betrayal NOT bury our heads because " it doesn't affect me".
