On March 25th he will travel to Berlin to sign the 50 page agreement , Declaration on the future of Europe, without even consulting the people of the UK. Far from a simple "declaration", this a binding treaty which embodies "basic laws" for 490 million people in 27 countries
On March 25th he will travel to Berlin to sign the 50 page agreement , Declaration on the future of Europe, without even consulting the people of the UK. Far from a simple "declaration", this a binding treaty which embodies "basic laws" for 490 million people in 27 countries.
Its proposals were set out in the despised constitution, already crushingly rejected by voters across Europe. It will set up:
A PERMANENT, unelected, president of the European Union who will speak as a sole voice for the whole of Europe and serve a five-year term.
FULL-TIME foreign and defence ministers to represent Europe — which means powers like China and America will by-pass Britain and speak directly to them.
A REFORMED European parliament, empowered to draw up more of its own laws. Britain would lose the ability to veto its decisions — and each member state's own government will lose the right to "opt out" of EU laws and treaties.
We must not commit to European legal principles: pacta sunt servanda — "treaties are to be honoured."
Officials in Brussels have been working on the new agreement since June 2005, when the Dutch followed the French in rejecting the 300-page constitution which laid out exactly what powers the EU needed when it expanded from 12 to 27 member states.
In all, nine countries with a population of over 150 million turned it down or, like the UK, decided not to put it to the vote. Blair himself has decided the UK as a country will not vote about this matter, without even consulting the nation and letting us decide if we want to be controlled by a European Federation, we must demand a national referendum NOW
Britain's message can and should be clear and simple: NO to the European constitution, once and for all. The constitution is finished and should stay finished — that's democracy. The days when a political elite in Brussels could take more and more power for the EU are over, but unfortunatley they are not, Blair will sign our liberties and our rights away with a stroke of a pen and set the foundation for the UK to controlled by the Brussels.
Everyone residing in the UK should sign up to our petition that there can be no new EU treaties that hand over more power from Britain to the EU without the British people having the final say in a referendum.
