"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."

What Has Europe Done For Us?


The way things are going this could become a regular feature of the blog!  Here are two things the EU is trying to do for us today:

For London:

Cars could be banned from central London on designated days amid fears that Britain might not hit clean air targets. Boris Johnson says it might be necessary to explore the idea if the country fails to meet European Union limits, which would result in a £300m fine for the Government in the next 18 months. The Local Government Association said the fine would add £15 to the average annual council tax bill.

Nationally:

Under 'clawback' procedures outlawed in England 'forced heirs' can undo property sales up to 30 years earlier if the deceased did not make adequate provision for relatives in their will. That means the relatives could stake a claim to property which has since been purchased by someone else in Britain.

Experts have warned that British citizens could lose their homes or be forced to pay hundreds of thousands of pounds to the foreign relatives of previous owners.

I hope all MPs who nodded through the Lisbon Treaty without understanding it now realise what they've done to this country and the British people.  Resign you useless b@st@rds.

  2. How can they can even be considering these proposals?

    This will be a sure vote loser, so I doubt anything will come of it ... yet. However, if Labour is ever voted in again, this issue could be resurrected.

  4. Labour, and Brown in particular, have just been a holding position until Lisbon passed. You're right Spidey, they don't care - it's for our own good after all!

    We've all blogged about the big things: criminal justice system, civil liberties, constitution etc, now the small print is being revealed. These are the things that people can see touch their lives more directly and there'll be lots they can no longer hide.
