There are signs that at least one senior Labour politician has rumbled what the future in Euroland could hold.

Denis MacShane, the Europe minister, has accused Germany of supporting plans for a new super-powerful "Kaiser" or Caesar, which is what the word really means.

He told the Financial Times that Germany wants to "give all power to a new kind of European Kaiser" who would "tell all other European institutions what to do."

There's a surprise. To anyone who has never opened a history book anyway. The Germans want a united Europe with an all-powerful leader. Well I never - I wouldn't have thought it!

I was a guest in the puppet parliament in Brussels when the vote was taken on the Euro. Afterwards I lunched with a number of MEPs and told them that, as they now had one currency, one parliament, one set of laws and, soon, a police force covering the continent, there was a logical next step. What's that, they asked innocently. I replied: "One leader - one fuehrer."

In fact this call for a strong man has echoed down the ages through Europe and for over 50 years those who dreamed up the Euro nightmare have been planning just that. I have quote after quote to this effect, since you ask…some of them spine tingling in their explicitness.

Labour's Denis has now discovered, according to the Financial Times, that Germany's foreign minister Joschka Fischer has put forward the idea of a joint president of both the European Commission, the EU's executive arm, and the Council of Ministers, which represents member states.

Denis says he told the Germans that "350 years ago we separated a king's head from his body because we didn't want to take orders from one individual."

Unfortunately for Denis, the French and Germans, who carve up Europe between them, will pay no attention to his views. Even if all our MEPs voted together, they would still be a tiny minority in the puppet parliaments of Brussels and Strasbourg.

The German people have now discovered that the Euro has even worse economic consequences than they suspected. Before they went in, over 65 per cent of them thought it a bad idea. Now the figure is 80 per cent.

However, what voters think doesn't matter in the superstate. Once you are in, you stay in, even though unemployment in the stagnating German economy is now approaching ten per cent.

This is serious business, dear readers. Bernard Weatherill, a former Speaker of the House of Commons, agrees. He has just said that the drive to monetary union in Europe is the biggest threat to the freedom of Parliament since another speaker, Speaker Lenthall, refused, in an historic statement, to allow King Charles I to have five MPs arrested.

He went on: "I am increasingly alarmed by the way in which our constitution today is overriden with a flood of EU directives and regulations which are seldom, if ever, debated in Parliament and yet are binding on us."

For what is the European Union but a centralised bureaucracy with a monetary unit? Incidentally, the would-be next guardian of the Euro, the Governor of the Bank of France, went on trial in Paris this week on charges relating to a banking scandal.

Year after year EU auditors refuse to sign off the books, as did the EU's own chief accountant - only to be threatened and followed by "goons."

The new EU constitution, currently being drawn up, envisages EU embassies instead of national ones, even a Euro Pentagon.

An EU justice department will launch cross border investigations, backed by a Euro FBI which will have no democratic accountability.

Hitler would have loved all this. In fact it is just as the Nazis proposed. Is anyone else's alarm bell ringing?
