Referendum: how Labour could still smell of roses.
[Eurofacts -14th December,2007]
The following statement from the Labour Euro-Safeguards Campaign Bulletin, November, 2007
Even at this late stage, It must surely be worth the government's while rethinking its strategy on refusing a referendum on the Lisbon treaty.
Letting one be held with the probable No result, would provide the government with the leverage it needs to resist further integrationist moves, which it is hard to believe that most members of the government - any more than most other people in Britain -want to see implemented.
having a referendum would fulfil the promise given at the last general election to allow the people a say. It would deprive the Conservatives of their current advantage in supporting a policy on having a democratic vote on the Lisbon treaty, which the current government opposes.
It is true that agreeing to a referendum in the UK would make our government unpopular with many of the leaders in other countries but there are worse things in the world than that.
Wantonly and unnecessarily surrendering our national sovereignty to Brussels is one of them.'
Working in the EU Commission means never having to say your sorry
[Eurofacts -14th December,2007]
[Instead some say 'and that's why I'm pissed of with that discussion]
It is a truism that governments that have been in office a long time become arrogant -but governments, like the one in Brussels, that are not democratically accountable - simply have no sense of shame [ who only have distain for those outside minions who dare question their judgment].
On 3rd December the Times reported that disabled people who rely on motorised scooters are to be hit with a £300 tax. This follows an EU ruling that these should be categorised as leisure vehicles along with jet skis, racing cars, snowmobiles and golf buggies.
The electric power-driven wheel cars with flexible handlebars are used by many disabled people with mobility problems including disabled servicemen.
Jim Dooley, a former pop singer who runs the Mobility Bureau, which provides motorised wheelchairs and scooters for hundreds of disabled servicemen, complained about the ruling to Mr Brown last July and received a reply from the Treasury which promised to look into the matter.
EU spokesmen have declined to comment.
Without joining the steadily dwindling camp of Brown admirers we suspect that authority in the matter did not rest with the
In this instance it would have made a show of concern and might even have put matters right.
Even when evading responsibility for major blunders British ministers tend to be at least polite when responding to public concerns

SERVE the PUBLIC.
This will rapidly change as we see more ministers refusing to reply to the media 's questions and being down right rude in their manner when they cannot avoid comment. This is only the beginning and the so-called
will soon be a thing of the past. EU employees will tell you what to do and you will have to lump it. As for the 'red lines' with the promise of foreign policemen on our streets with their continental ideas of guilty before innocent -the interrogation will certainly be quite different to the once home grown variety.
History of the English-Speaking People's
He wrote in 1956
'By many it is forgotten that
'It is a maxim of English law that the legal memory begins with the accession of Richard I in 1189. The date was set for a technical reason by the Statute of Edward I [who died in 1307]. It could scarcely have been more appropriately chosen however, for with the close of the reign of Henry II we are on the threshold of a new epoch [As we see ourselves in 2007] in the history of English law...
This is the measure of the great King's achievement He had laid the foundations of the English Common Law, upon which succeeding generations would build. Changes in the design would arise, but its main outlines were not to be altered.
It was in these fateful and formative years that the English-speaking peoples began to devise methods of determining legal disputes which survive in substance to this day.
A man can only be accused of a civil or criminal offence which is clearly defined and known to the law. The judge is an umpire. He adjudicates on such evidence as the parties choose to produce. Witnesses must testify in public and on oath. The are examined and cross-examined, not by the court or the judge, but by the litigants themselves or their qualified and privately hired representatives.
The truth of their testimony is weighted not by the court but by twelve good men and true, and it is only when the jury has determined the facts that the court or judge is empowered to impose sentence, punishment, or penalty according to law. All might seem very obvious, even a platitude, until one contemplates the alternative system which still dominates a large portion of the world [and particularly the United States of Europe in 2007]
Under Roman law and systems derived from it [In the EU as we have witnessed in Portugal over the past year in 2007], a trial in those turbulent centuries, and in some countries even to-day [In the EU as we have witnessed in Portugal over the past year in 2007] , IS OFTEN AN INQUISITION.
The judge or court makes its own investigation into the civil wrong or public crime and such INVESTIGATION is LARGELY UNCONTROLLED.
THE SUSPECT CAN BE INTERROGATED IN PRIVATE
HE MUST ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS PUT TO HIM
His right to be represented by a legal adviser IS RESTRICTED.
The witnesses against him can testify IN SECRET and in his ABSENCE.
And only when these processes have been accomplished is the accusation or charge against him formulated and published.
Thus often arises secret intimidation, enforced confessions, torture, and blackmailed pleas of guilty.
These sinister dangers were extinguished from the
COMMON LAW of ENGLAND
more than six centuries ago.
By the time Henry II's great-grandson, Edward I, had died English criminal and civil procedure had settled into a mould and tradition which in the mass govern the English -speaking people today. Whether it concerned the grazing lands of the Middle West, the oil fields of California, the sheep runs and gold-mines of Australia, or the territorial rights of the Maoris, these rules obtained in all claims and disputes, at any rate in theory, according to the procedure and mode of trial evolved by the
ENGLISH COMMON LAW

Since their jobs don't depend on the voters EU Commissioners evidently feel no need [ to be understanding as they are the bosses and everyone else needs to know their place and obey without complaint. And to think that the once fierce islanders who would have once put them to flight and are only now realising what their no interest attitude will bring -and it is only the start.]
Here is another example.
Last month the European Court of Auditors pointed out that the 2003 reform to the CAP has resulted in the allocation of cash to landlords who have never practiced agriculture, such as
[In fact so long as the money is widely distributed to any Dick or Harry they have done their job to distribute the spoils in order to get more converts to the EU.]
You might have thought that in the circumstances
Mrs. Mariann Fischer Boel
the EU Commissioner for Agriculture would have wished to apologise or to express sincere regret that millions of euros in taxpayers money had been

" It's a pity that all the efforts and all the improvement that we have made in agriculture to secure that money [much of it from Britain] is totally overshadowed by a history of golf courses. And that's why I'm pissed off with that discussion", she announced.
It seems that one consequence of the democratic deficit is bad manners and bad language as well as arrogance. If they choose to reply at all to criticism the response of EU officials can be effectively summarised in two words- and the second of these is
[We haven't seen the half of it yet and it will in time be the independent journalists who will be ostracized and even banned from approaching members of the

[Further in his History of the English speaking- people's our great war leader Winston Churchill wrote of a period of great peril:
The stubborn wish for practical freedom was not broken in England, and the status and temper of the people stand in favourable contrast to the exhausted passivity of the French peasant, bludgeoned to submission by war, famine, and the brutal suppressions of the Jacquerie
"It is cowardise and lack of hartes and corage, "
wrote Sir John Fortescue, the eminent jurist of Henry VI's reign,
"That kepeth the Frenchmen from rysyng, and not povertye; which corage no Frenche man hath like the English man..."
We shall see in the following six months whether the words of a great Lord Chancellor of England buried in the village church in Ebrington Gloucestershire have been found true in our own time.
In the words of an English poet William Cowper of Horton Buckinghamshire ,who showed much patriotic sentiment of his country in his day ,who quoted the following:
"Freedom has a thousand charms to show.
That slaves, however contented know."
The EU is in the process of charming the English and our fellow Islanders so they are led into another political system in substance still in being across our vulnerable moat today in 2007 which the above Lord Chancellor mentioned in his day as a system alien to the sacred rights of Englishmen.
In the year 1232 Hubert de Burgh the Justiciar of England and supporter of our Great Charter of 1215 - MAGNA CARTA was forced from office in 1232 and taken prisoner and delivered to a blacksmith to be fettered in chains. The blacksmith refused to obey the order and stating:
" Is he not that most faithful Hubert who so often saved England from the devastation of foreigners and restored England to England."
In England in 2007 where is such a man to save England from
