The New Euro-UK Constitution

His Grace would like to introduce erudite communicants and loyal readers to the new Constitution of the United Kingdom, published for the first time in the vernacular, more by a process of dynamic equivalence than literal translation.

It consolidates all of the previous EU treaties, is 331 pages long, and interminably dull. It codifies the powers of the ‘Supreme Government of Europe’, introduces the ‘President of Europe’, endows the Union with a legal personality, and creates a global diplomatic corps which envisages EU ambassadors in every country of the world.

Welcome to your new government and to your new leader.

All of this, however, involves no erosion of essential national sovereignty, and nothing in it is remotely constitution, for that very concept is abandoned.

These politicians do not hold to the truth, for there is no truth in them. When they lie, they speak their native language, for they are liars and the sons of the father of lies.

I apologise in advance for my manifest ignorance of the UK political process.

Can a constituent request that his MP “ask a question in the house”?

If a constituent requests information from his MP that would require a “freedom of information” request, is he obliged to answer it in all cases? In any cases?

Can a constituent ask his MP “what are the implications for UK food security” due to the "gradual end to dairy subsidies" and demand a reply?

Are MPs required to know the details of all Bills voted on at every stage of transition? Any bills at any stage at all?

I have in mind the thousands of EU regulations which reportedly are given authority in the UK without a thorough scrutiny by MPs. If I ask about the implications for an arbitrary British Subject X of EU regulation Y is he obliged to take all reasonable steps to provide a full answer? Is an MP only obliged to answer a question only if it is directly and personally relevant to the constituent asking it?

Hear, hear! Communism is coming back unless we stop it. The likes of Mili-Me, Mandelcreep, MacSlime, Gay Gordon and Bliar are not fit to be trusted with charge of a tobacco kiosk, let alone a nation.

The people temporarily in charge of this country are treating it as their own property to do as they like with. This comprehensive giving away of everything we have inherited can surely not be binding on the population?

What I find encouraging is that this issue is binding all those whio value the country even if they have little else in common.

The traitorous Liberals risk being on the wrong side of a historic arguement which will dismay many of their supporters .

Do look at Tory Radio for a terrific Clegg quoye about honesty

i agree , this is not just a casr of a good idea badly put forward but a bad idea that should never have even got off the ground. already in certain eu states we see exhaustion , national traditions eroded and violent crime on the increase.
there is nothing that our great education establishments cannot match or exceed at in terms of governence, that is in europe.

we doubt our own abilities both politically and as a nation , it will result in the ordinary people of this nation becoming a primordial soup , our bonds of history undone and we too with it .

already its expense grows , it has been shown time and time again to be corrupt , the recent bio fuels push , was nothing but lobby groups and fake science.

it is the dishonesty that this is being done with , the tarting up of a turd , that has no chance of being anything else but a turd as it is unable to right its self.

"who will guard the guards then!"

mr milliband tells lies in that parliment is not the place to discuss these matters , he is using power which has not been given to him by the public, he signs a treaty but not on my behalf , he hasnt asked me !

Has your grace not seen this little insidious piece of work by Becta, the government's educational technology agency who tuned down a story based on the three little pigs because it might offend the Muslim Community.

An interesting little document, but I note that it leaves out the Declarations. What about Declaration 27 about the primacy of EU law? That alone shows how much power has been transfered and remember the ECJ is no independent Court of Justice but is one of the Brussels Government's Institutions.

The Conference recalls that, in accordance with well settled case law of the EU Court of Justice, the
Treaties and the law adopted by the Union on the basis of the Treaties have primacy over the law of
Member States, under the conditions laid down by the said case law.

The fact that the principle of primacy will not be included in the future treaty shall
not in any way change the existence of the principle and the existing case-law of the Court of

But then why make everything open and transparent? People might actually wake up to what is going on then, and that would never do.

Can someone answer Bert Rustle's comment? My MP pays scant regard to the questions I ask him, but then he has said that he has been voted in to parliament and should be allowed to get on and do his job. I assume that he means without interference from those pesky electors, until the next general election.

I asked the question on as well, twice, without response. I had assumed there would be many seasoned campaigners there who know how to get blood out of a stone, maybe not.

All I can think of is targeting those with slim majorities and campaigning locally, now, against those who did not vote against (hence including those bunking off) the bill on Monday. Unfortunately I know nothing of these matters in practice.
