IF BRITAIN HADN'T JOINED THE EUROPEAN UNION
On the 50th anniversary of the
EUROPEAN UNION, a devastating analysis of what it's REALLY COST US.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of
TREATY of ROME
-which launched what was eventually to
Whatever our European partners may get
up to in commemorating this historic moment [calamity], in two month's
time., it is safe to predict that the celebrations here in Britain
will be pretty muted. It is unlikely that cheering crowds will be
turning out to watch fireworks exploding over the Thames.
Although all our major political
parties are totally wedded to our MEMBERSHIP
-of this vast political project, the
EU's own polls have consistently shown that the PEOPLE of BRITAIN are
less happy to be part of it than those of any other country in EUROPE.
[The dissenting voices from the PAST to
our entrapment into the EEC]
[In 1963 the French President
Charles de Gaulle
declared that it would be impossible for Britain to join
the EU because of its CUSTOMS -CONSTITUTION and HISTORY.]

'I say we must not join
in 1961-To consider the Common Market in simple black and white terms.
Letter from Lord Kilmuir, the Lord
Chancellor warning of the danger to the country's SOVEREIGNTY, to Edward
Heath, prior to the acceptance by Parliament of the TREATY of ROME.]
Tonypandy - Previous Speaker of the House of Commons-1976-83 -supports our
Ancient Constitution and against our involvement in the so-called Common
Market in fact a pseudo for the
United States of Europe.
BE WARNED-'THE LIES of 1975-THAT STILL
Perhaps it may be timely therefore to mark this
anniversary in our own way today, by asking what Britain would be like
TODAY if, all those decades ago, our then-political leaders, such as
Harold Macmillan and Edward Heath, had NEVER taken us into it in the
If we had NEVER entered the 'Common
Market' back in 1973, would we now, as the Europhiles like to tell us,
be just an impoverished little island standing sadly alone on the edge of
Europe, gazing in envy at the success of the great project we were SO
FOOLISH NOT TO JOIN?
Or is it possible that we might in 2007
be living in a Britain significantly richer, happier, freer, more
democratic, more self-respecting and more at ease with itself THAN IT IS
To imagine how Britain might have fared
if we had never been drawn inti 'EUROPE'
-but remained on the outside as an
INDEPENDENT Nation, like Norway and Switzerland - the two countries
which have persistently refused to join -we must consider both what we
are meant to have gained and also what we have lost.
And here we immediately come up
against a paradox. The most obvious thing we didn't gain on entering the
Common Market was the one benefit we were told was the main reason for
When Macmillan first decided to take us
in back in the early Sixties, it was because Britain was suddenly
suffering from a severe loss of self-confidence. As U.S. Secretary of
State Dean Acheson observed in the forties,
-BRITAIN HAD LOST AN EMPIRE AND NOT YET
FOUND A ROLE'.
POLITICALLY and economically we seemed
as a nation to be spiralling downwards -and this was just when we could
see those original six Common Market countries having made a miraculous
recovery from the chaos of World War II.
The PROMISE was that , by going into
partnership with them, we might learn the secret of their newfound
dynamism -and for this we were prepared to turn our back on so much of
what over the centuries had given Britain her unique place in the world.
In particular, by throwing in our
destiny with Europe, we were expected to turn away from the
English-speaking world and abandon our close historic and economic ties
with the worldwide Commonwealth with which we conducted nearly half our
The paradox was that when in the
1980sm, we did eventually rediscover the secret of economic success, in
that transformation which took place under Mrs Thatcher this had nothing
whatsoever to do with our MEMBERSHIP of what had by then become the
Britain's renaissance, which by the
late 1990s had made us again the fourth-largest economy in the world was
entirely homegrown. And by this time that original equation which had
drawn us into 'EUROPE' in the FIRST PLACE had been almost ENTIRELY
It was now those Continental countries
whose economies were suffocating under all the problems Britain had
solved by her own efforts in the 1980s -while most of the countries
across the world whose economies have in the past decade been bounding
ahead, from America to Australia to India , are part of that English
speaking world and Commonwealth on which we had decided to turn our
In hindsight, we can see that , had we
remained outside the European project, as it has become increasingly
sunk in economic gloom, we could have remained a natural part of what
became the most dynamic sector of the global economy.
In taking that mighty gamble back in
the 1960s and 1970s it has very much looked as though we backed the
wrong horse - and ,simply in economic terms, we have paid a COLOSSAL
PRICE FOR IT.
Switching the main focus of our trade
away from the English-speaking world had turned out to be very one-sided
deal indeed. In the past 30 years, so much more do our European partners
sell to us than we sell to them that we have run up a staggering deficit
on our dealings with the EU
Without our trade with America and the
rest of the world-[Details on EDP Front-Page] for which we do not need

-we should long since have gone
bankrupt. The ultimate PROOF of how well we might have survived outside
the EU is that even TODAY, Both Norway and Switzerland, two of the
richest countries in Europe, export a higher percentage of their
products to the EU than we do,
WITHOUT HAVING TO JOIN IT.
But this is only a small part of
what we have given up as the PRICE for belonging to the
When we look at how much else we have
lost, we can see just how different Britain might look TODAY -IF WE HAD
The REAL SACRIFICE we have made in
submitting to the EU's system of 'supernational government' is that of
the right to decide
SO MANY OF OUR OWN LAWS AND POLICIES.

We would have the most efficient and prosperous agriculture in Europe,

Continuation of Essay:
Drawing on the experience of those 11 years when, as
Prime Minister, she saw the REAL NATURE of the 'EUROPEAN PROJECT' at
FIRST HAND Mrs Thatcher wrote in her last BOOK that the attempt to
create a European Super-state would be seen in the future as having been
'the greatest folly of the modern era'
She went on to say that for Britain, 'with her
traditional strengths and global destiny', to have become part of it,
would come to be seen as having been
'A POLITICAL ERROR OF THE FIRST
The fact is that , at a time when political judgment of
our leaders had been warped by the political and economic decline they
were led into taking a gamble we can now see, 30 years later, to have

LIES were bounded about by politicians who ONLY considered their
political careers and though many knew the TRUTH deceived the
ELECTORATE. WE have on our front page details of the crucial vote in the
House of Commons when a number of Conservative MPs sided with the LIERS .
There were some voices at the time who told the TRUTH such as Tony
Benn - Enock Powell- Eric Heffer and others of Integrity but they were shouted down by the
We cannot accept that so many
politicians were not aware of the full intention of the 1972 European
Communities Act or the other Treaties since that date particularly the
Maastricht Treaty which opened
the door to the United States of Europe.
If one looks at the publications
available at the time and the warnings from men of Integrity it will be found that the TRUE intentions of the
Common Market where already in current use among politicians - the idea
had been around since the late 1930s. For many of them now to say that
they did no know what was intended was a mortal blow to the Independence
of the greatest and longest Democracy since the time of Athens those
thousands of years ago.
No we will take no excuses from
politicians who that day in 1972 sold their country to a foreign power
and years later now say it was an unfortunate mistake.]
WE thank the Daily Mail and the excellent
summary by Christopher Booker which was of the usual high standard
which will remind many who have not given a thought to the European
Project to see the TRUTH which has been hidden from the General
Public by the Media particularly the BBC and sections of the Press for
over 50 years.
