"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."

More On The EU

“Our sovereignty has been take away by the European Court of Justice. Our courts must no longer enforce our national laws. They must enforce community law. No longer is European law an incoming tide flowing up the estuaries of England. It is now like a tidal wave bringing down our sea walls and flowing inland over our fields and houses to the dismay of all.” - Judge Lord Tom Denning, 1990.
The Lisbon Treaty is self amending (art. 48). The treaty allows for direct EU taxes and will affect foreign direct investment policy. Ireland’s low corporation tax has been complained about in the past by France and Germany. Under Lisbon EU politicians if they wished could abolish Ireland’s low corporation rate as it would be deemed ‘unfair’ competition.

UPDATE: Charters & Caldecott have news that the Constitreaty will be implemented no matter what the outcome of the Irish Referendum - how's that for democratic accountability?  Do you hear that Ireland?  And, what's Cameron's position re a British referendum now?
