"thanks to opt-outs negotiated by Mr

Full control of foreign policy was lost the day Britain
entered the EEC [in 1972]. The European Court of Justice ruled that

Origins of the Constitution
origins of this EU Constitution which suddenly is not a constitution go
back further than people think.
The first person we have to thank is an Italian communist, Alberto
Spinelli who from his prison cell in 1941 had a vision of a United
States of Europe, to be assembled over a long period without openly
revealing the end purpose.
peoples of Europe he planned should not be consulted until a
'constituent assembly' was ready to draw up a "constitution".
The next originator was Jean Monnet, a brandy salesman,
whose idea of a United States of Europe was a new form of supra national
government run by technocrats beyond the control of elected governments,
elected politicians and certainly electorates.
[DOES IT!] BEGIN TO RING THE BELL?
The final mastermind was Paul Henri Spaak, a prime
minister of Belgium who thought up a brilliant way to disguise the
project as only being concerned with economic matters and co-operation,
hence the original "Common Market" under which deceit we joined.
If this "Treaty" is imposed on us these three, venerated
by the EU, will have won.
