"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."

Wanted: An Expert In Constitutional Law...

... who is willing to step forward and deliver the truth.  Is the EU, as currently constituted, legal under the terms of the unwritten English Constitution?

I don't think it is but no-one in government refers to it except to say we 'don't have a Constitution'.  We do.  The fact that it's unwritten doesn't negate its effects or legality.  That's why we're getting all this tinkering with the Constitution and the House of Lords - see one thing, get another.

This is old news and it's time someone with constitutional authority stepped forward.  Every other country has a constitutional court which decides whether the EU can prevail or not; the UK only has MPs in the House of Commons - and people, of course; there'll always be the people.

I think they'll wait until their version of Jack Straw's Bill of Rights supplants our own 1689 Act before they enshrine new rules into law once and for all.

The sad thing is that it isn't even a question of 'now'; England has been b*ggered for so long that it seems to have forgotten that it isn't a very pleasant experience and that there's a different way to live.

It makes you wonder how many 'cold days in hell' England is willing to endure.

  1. Personally I think the only way out of the EU is for England to break away from the UK.

    Home rule for England.

  3. :-) wishful thinking, Wyrdtimes, no politician will touch it with a bargepole because it isn't in their interests. It would be good for the English though.

    Perhaps when the EU finally implodes someone might take a look at how the UK is structured & actually do something about it.

    If we've learned anything at all over the past 13yrs it's that politicans do what suits them, not what was in their manifestos and not what suits the people.
