I posted this in another thread but it does fit here:
I have recently had some correspondence with the office of David Cameron, and his office has confirmed that any further treaty’s that give more
power to the EU will be brought to the British people for them to decide, through a referendum. David Cameron will be the next Prime Minister in 2010
by the way. It also seems likely to me that the Irish people are going to say no to the Lisbon Treaty in six days, which will wreck it, at least for a
while until they find another way of selling it. So it looks unlikely that Britain will join up to the European Super State.
I know only one person who thinks we should be ruled by Brussels and that is my mother, who lives in France by the way. Everybody else I know sees no
reason why we should lose our sovereignty for the gain of absolutely feck all. The only reason this shambles has got so far is because it’s a
creeping matter and most people hate politics. That will change when the realisation of the enormity of the European project is made clear. We are an
island nation and we don’t need the EU.
Anyway if Russia attacked then we would fight as a group to defend ourselves as we have done before against one of our own.
At the end of the day the Labour Party are out of favour and out of ideas, they stand as much chance of winning the next election, has they do of
winning on scratch cards every day for a month. But that isn’t their biggest problem: They tried New Labour (move to the right) and it’s all gone
rotten. They can only move left now, back to the days of unelectable leftists. The Tories will win and they don’t do province politics.
I’ll post a snippet of the last mail I got:
“However, there is certainly a great deal that is wrong with the EU – the persistent attempts to take ever more powers from nation states, the
mismanaged budget, the failures of the Common Fisheries Policy and, sadly, more – which is we have campaigned for reform and modernisation in the
We believe in an open, flexible Europe and it has long been David’s view that elected representatives should not give up the powers they were
elected to wield without asking the people who elected them first.
So we opposed the EU Constitution in principle, and that is why, now it has been brought back in substance under a different name, David, and his
colleagues, are working so hard to hold Gordon Brown’s Labour Party and the Liberal Democrats to the election manifesto pledges they made to voters
and get the referendum on the Lisbon EU Treaty we were all promised.
It is also why we have pledged that a Conservative government will amend the 1972 European Communities Act so that any new EU Treaty that transfers
competences – essentially EU legal language for powers – from the UK to the EU would be subject to a referendum of the British people. This is
because we strongly uphold the principle that people should have freedom and control over their own lives, and it should no longer be possible for
Governments to hand over power to the EU without the British peoples’ explicit permission.”
