I'm just looking at the research paper on the European Union (Amendment) Bill from the House of Commons Library which says:
The content of the Treaty, though not its structure, is similar in a great many respects to the EU Constitution.
I have just been trying to find an area of Justice and Home Affairs which I am being told is substantially different from the Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe. (It was also a treaty, you see) and the only differences I can find are that there are new articles giving more power to the EU in the Lisbon Treaty than there were in the TECE and that there are EU institutions which are granted immunity. Like Europol. Policemen and their families who can't be arrested or prosecuted and who are appointed by people who are not accountable to the voters in the EU.
And today, arseholes Brown and Clegg will ensure that MPs who were elected on a manifesto of promising a referendum deny that very same referendum because they are too scared they will lose it, and their EU bubble will burst.
They haven't quite grasped the idea that they are lent power by people and they are supposed to do what we want and not what they want to do. I don't know why they are so keen on the EU. Maybe they are paid to be? Maybe they realise it's the only way they will get their socialist, communist policies through in this country?
Who knows. What I do know is that people will remember that they can't be trusted and I hope that if they don't take to the streets to protest at the fascist behaviour of our MPs they do kick them where it hurts and throw them out at the first possible opportunity. And then make them spend time in gulags to see what happens to opponents of this regime they are so enamored of. Maybe some mild violence and torture thrown in for good measure. And starvation. And endless episodes of coronation street in Flemish.
