The Death of the EU might have been exaggerated - but the
Danger of the Death of British Democracy can hardly be overstated.
Monday, May 30,2005
This vote reveals the lies at the heart of the European
demise of Mark Twain, rumours of the death of the European Union have been
greatly exaggerated. The implication of yesterday’s French referendum on the EU
Constitution were amply summed up in advance by Luxembourg’s Jean-Claude
Juncker the current EU President, when he declared that if the French said ‘oui’,
European integration would proceed, and if they said ‘non’,
European integration would proceed [So there!]
what the EU means by ‘consulting the people’.
That’s why France’s President Chirac threatened that if the French voted
no, they would
be made to vote again until they said yes.
such a fate will also befall the Dutch if they vote ‘nee’ in their own
referendum on Wednesday on Wednesday [They did as we now all now know] unless
the do so by an overwhelming majority [Ditto].
event, this whole crisis has been more about political momentum than any
possible real change in direction.
regardless of the constitution, the reality is that the countries of the EU are
already the helpless captives of an all-encompassing, anti-democratic
bureaucracy with a life of its own.
the constitution was always going to be imposed upon us anyway through the
seemingly endless wrinkles in the existing EU treaties. Indeed, the creation of an EU diplomatic service and the
harmonisation of criminal justice are already on the way.
words, nothing so trivial as the will of the people would ever be allowed to
derail the EU project, which has come to define the world view for a whole
class of politicians, bureaucrats and lawyers who have governed the nations of
Europe for a generation.
the French referendum campaign dramatically exposed the profound faultlines and
contradictions at the heart of the EU project.
The passions unleashed by the constitution relate not just to the treaty
itself but, much more fundamentally, to the European dream.
of European voters have grasped that the EU project is a swindle. It was sold to them on the false prospectus
that it would bring prosperity. Instead
they find their countries are crippled by economic sclerosis.
problem, however, is that many do not understand why this has happened. Many French voters who voted ‘non’ did so
for the wrong reasons. They believed
that the constitution would foist upon them Anglo-Saxon market disciplines and
expose them to the chill winds of competition from foreign companies and
this position is the diametric opposite of the British ‘no’ voters, who rightly
fear that further integration with Europe would destroy our economic advantage
and leave us crippled.
the French ‘non’ voters don’t seem to grasp is that the whole of the EU edifice
rests on a set of fantasy foundations. The first is the premise
that the nation-states of Europe have common interests.
they have rather more irreconcilable social, political and cultural differences
-and their economic interests lie in being in competition with each other, the
very thing the EU is in business to stifle.
The second great myth is that
the EU can be a rival global power to the US. -the social welfare state versus the unbridled free market.
Euro-fanatics are so wrapped up in this infantile
hostility that they have failed to notice that the world has moved on.
China are fast becoming major competitors; the developing markets are in Asia
and the Far East; and newcomers to the EU from Eastern Europe are American
thing they want to do is emulate stagnant, high-employment economies such as in
Germany where voter revolt has caused beleaguered Prime Minister Gerhard
Schroeder to advance the date of the general election.
The third fantasy is that
the nation-state is the cause of war and only the supra-national EU has kept the peace in
Europe since World War II.
This is the most
dangerous rubbish of all. Peace in
Europe was guaranteed by NATO and the Atlantic alliance. Indeed, it
is when self-government is suppressed and national identity threatened that
people turn violent.
circumstances, they would also be far less keen to fight against an enemy
threatening their freedom -because they would no longer have any significant
freedom to defend.
MEP Daniel Hannon has argued, the main threat to freedom comes from the supra-national tyrannies
-communism, Nazism, Islamic totalitarianism -to which only the
nation-state can offer any proper defence.
EU is fundamentally hostile to the very idea of the nation state. Not only is it emasculating national powers,
but its erosion of national borders has encouraged the mass movement of peoples
across the continent, the very thing fuelling the pan-European voter revolt.
French are the driving force behind the European supra-national ideal. Yet when faced with the inevitable
consequences -the arrival of millions of foreigners who threaten not only
French jobs but the French national identity -they don’t like it.
wholly erroneous belief that the nation state is a recipe for war and that,
instead a supra-national government should impose laws and values to which
everyone signs up and which will spread harmony and good will in place of
conflict, is precisely what is embodied in the EU constitution.
extension of EU powers would take away what remains of our ability to govern
ourselves. It would deprive us of
Immigration and a host of other policies.
The wholesale transfer of power to a brand new
pseudo-state would reduce Parliament to the status of Westminster regional
council. As such, it sounds a death
knell for democracy.
never worried the French because the EU is quintessently a French project. France has always been in the driving seat,
telling other states what to do and rigging the EU rules to suit itself. Other countries also do not share these concerns
because they have a shaky historical attachment to democracy and liberty.
why the objections to the constitution by the British people are so very
different and so very emphatic. Despite
the lies that have been told about the constitution being merely a ‘tidying up exercise -a comic
counterpoint to President Chirac’s hysterical claims that a ‘no’ vote would
destroy the EU -t the British understand that what is a t stake is our unique
A great fissure in the
world has opened up between those who believe in the nation state and those who
believe it must be superseded by supra-national institutions, which do away
with a nation’s identity expressed through its own laws and values.
constitution represents a great leap forward in that rolling revolution. But whatever the final fate of that
particular treaty, the fanatical and corrupt elite that drives the EU onwards
will not give up.
Through bullying, lies and intimidation, they will
continue to deprive us of our ancient liberties, slice by salami slice.
the political aftermath of the French and Dutch votes plays out in the short
term in Britain and in Europe, the fact remains that the UK now needs to have a
full and frank debate about its place in a European Union that presents such a
clear threat to our constitutional traditions and national identity.
The death of the EU
might have been exaggerated -but the danger of the death of British democracy
can hardly be overstated.

Should the Monarch fail to protect our
inherited RIGHTS and Liberties then we shall
have to fight for a REPUBLIC as
happened in the 17th century because the
Monarch of the day ignored those very
'Rights and Liberties of Englishmen' which
will still survive in the English Speaking
World today in December 2007. How can the
MOTHER of PARLIAMENTS give away what is
already our and our children's
INHERITANCE which cannot be taken away by

If the above publicity

We now learn
from the Daily Mail COMMENT on Christmas Eve
that the Queen's Speech will cover the
catastrophic fall in Values and Moral
behaviour since the beginning of her 56
-year reign. This has been brought about by
the actions of HER MINISTERS and the greater
number of those in HER PARLIAMENT who have
placed THEIR CONCERNS before the INTERESTS
of THE PEOPLE and NATION STATE.
the fact that HER PEOPLE feel LOST that has
been the direct result of the actions of HER
SUCCESSIVE GOVERNMENTS and the TRAITOROUS
POLITICIANS including PRIME MINISTERS who
have stealthily over the 56 years of HER

subjects of the MONARCH who is the living
