"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

  1. So frightening. Time we had a referendum of the Lisbon Treaty. I would prefer us to be part of the European Council of course, similar to Scandanavia, Switzerland etc.

  2. Even Germany has insisted on safeguards being written into their own Constitution before the Treaty is fully ratified. It seems that every country is looking to protect their own interests except Britain - the Labour Party can't seem to get rid of it quickly enough, SR. Yes, we definitely need a referendum.
