I can’t think of a clearer example of a state without sovereignty.
This is at the heart of what is meant by a ‘coercive government’, redistribution of another’s wealth for the benefit of whoever a government deems appropriate. This move will only serve to drive (thankfully) hundreds of thousands more into the ranks of UKIP. The day of the UK’s departure from the EU is nearer than ever before.
NOTE: And Finnish politicians lamely think that EU membership affords them some kind of protection from the Russian bear. Think again, your exchanging one tyranny for another, and the latter will sell you down the river faster than an Indian can skin a buffalo.

EU says UK must dole out MORE benefits: Brussels takes legal action to force Britain to lift restrictions on migrants claiming handouts
- Britain could be forced to pay benefits to more migrants under EU plans

- Figures show 24,000 families are currently claiming for children abroad
Britain will be forced to pay benefits to even more migrants under EU plans to be fought over in a politically explosive court case.
Officials in Brussels last night confirmed that the European Commission is taking legal action to make Britain lift existing restrictions that prevent some migrants claiming child benefit and child tax credit in the UK. The news comes just days after David Cameron pledged to cut handouts in a bid to reduce soaring immigration.
The case at Europe’s highest court will further anger the public and politicians who have called on the Government to tighten up Britain’s generous welfare system and make the country a less attractive destination for would-be immigrants.
If Britain loses, it will either have to change the law to allow jobless migrant families to claim child benefit, or face paying millions in fines.
Latest figures show 24,000 families are currently claiming child benefit of at least £89 a month for 38,500 children living abroad, at an estimated cost of £30 million a year, while 4,000 claim child tax credit.
