Britain, Europe, And The Culture of Deceit

“There are some in this country who fear that in going into Europe we shall in some way sacrifice independence and sovereignty. These fears, I need hardly say, are completely unjustified” . And so the lies started right at the top, with Prime Minister Edward Heath in his television broadcast on Britain’s entry into the Common Market, January 1973.

By 2001 in the infamous Steven Thoburn Sunderland metrication case Judge Bruce Morgan stated that “This country quite voluntarily surrendered the once seemingly immortal concept of the sovereignty of parliament and legislative freedom by membership of the European Union … as a once sovereign power, we have said we want to be bound by Community law”. On appeal to the Divisional Court QBD the decision was that “It is important for its recognition of the supremacy of EU law and the basis for that recognition”.

But it wasn’t the country it was the government, the liars to the country, that sacrificed independence and sovereignty. The long-term objectives of economic and monetary union, it was made clear to Heath, “are very far-reaching indeed”, going “well beyond the full establishment of a Common Market”. The Werner [then Prime Minister of Luxembourg, Pierre Werner] plan could lead to “The ultimate creation of a European federal state, with a single currency. All the basic instruments of national economic management (fiscal, monetary, incomes and regional policies) would ultimately be handed over to the central federal authorities. The Werner report suggests that this radical transformation of present Communities should be accomplished within a decade”. (PRO/FCO 30/789)

Today, this once great country is held hostage by rebel politicians who claim to know better than 17.4million people who voted to leave the corrupt EU. They have warned the prime minister they “could collapse the Government” if she refuses to bow to remainer demands. These remainers demand a “meaningful” vote on the Brexit Bill. Even worse, unelected Labour peers have vowed to back those demands again in the House of Lords.

It is now claimed by one Tory rebel he will not sign up to a “slavery clause”. It beggars belief that these people were chosen on the basis of a party manifesto and a statement binding us to the unambiguous result of the referendum. After years of deception and the surrender of our democracy Theresa May should get off her knees, stop grovelling to these people, deliver what she keeps on telling us she believes, that Brexit means Brexit, and then publish a bill to abolish the House of Lords and replace it with a new elected chamber. Its contempt for the referendum result is disgraceful.
