Our democracy betrayed
what threads run through these priceless things, and
hold them together? At least
two fundamental principles
are common to all of them.
is the hard won right of the British people to elect and
dismiss those who make their laws?
is that the British people have given Parliament the
power to make all their laws for them,
but they have not given Parliament
permission to give that power away.
Both of these principles,
for which, over the centuries, millions have willingly
given up their lives, already stand deeply betrayed by
our membership of the European Union. I propose to
justify this depressing statement under three heads.
What is the present position under the Treaties of Rome;
how much of our democracy have we already handed over to
the corrupt octopus in Brussels and how were we deceived
into doing it?
How much is this costing us in cash and is it worth it?
What does the proposed EU Constitution
have in store for us?
It is essential to remember
that the people’s pact is with Parliament; it is not
with the Executive or Government of the day.
elect and dismiss Members of Parliament once every 4 or
and our Government is formed out of a majority of
elected MP’s. But only
of the electorate now bother to vote in General
Elections, and modern
Governments are supported by only some
40% of those who do vote, or 24% of the electorate.
The percentage of those who vote is
declining; trust in our system of Parliamentary
Democracy is eroding steadily.
I submit therefore that these temporary
Governments, always empowered by a minority of the
people, do not have the right to break great pacts upon
which our Sovereignty rests. Yet that is just what they
have been doing for the last 32 years.
