IT HAS TAKEN US 43 YEARS BUT NOW WE HAVE NOW DECIDED OUR NATIONS OWN DESTINY OUTSIDE THE EU. FOLLOWING THE IN/OUT REFERENDUM ON 23rd JUNE 2016, BRITAIN HAS CHOSEN TO LEAVE THE EU.
OBVIOUSLY THIS SITE ALWAYS BELIEVED WE SHOULD LEAVE THE EU, THE SOONER THE BETTER, AND NOW WE WILL, BUT WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND AND RESPECT THAT NOT EVERYONE SHARES OUR OPINION OR JOY!
IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE REFERENDUM RESULT, A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO SUPPORTED THE REMAIN CAMPAIGN ARE HAVING A HARD TIME ACCEPTING THE RESULT. WE ARE ALREADY SEEING PETITIONS BEING SIGNED TO DEMAND A FURTHER REFERENDUM, THESE PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE TO BE HAPPY ABOUT THE RESULT, BUT THEY NEED TO RECOGNISE THIS IS A DEMOCRATIC DECISION BY A MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE. SOME ARE EVEN CALLING FOR LONDON TO BECOME INDEPENDENT AND REJOIN THE EU.
IT ALSO LOOKS LIKELY THAT SCOTLAND, WHO VOTED OVERWHELMINGLY TO REMAIN IN THE EU WILL HAVE A FURTHER INDEPENDENCE REFERENDUM, LEAVE GREAT BRITAIN AND ATTEMPT TO REJOIN THE EU. SEEMS ODD THAT YOU WOULD WANT TO LEAVE ONE UNION TO JOIN AN EVEN BIGGER ONE, BUT IF THEY WANT TO GET OUT OF THE LIFEBOAT AND BACK ON THE TITANIC, THAT’S THEIR CHOICE, AND WE SHOULD WISH THEM WELL, BUT ENSURE THEY UNDERSTAND THEY ARE ON THEIR OWN.
What is truly shocking is that no-one born after 1957 had ever had a say on anything related to Britain’s relationship with the EU, HOW was that democracy? This leads us to the belief that the EU has no pretensions of being democratic, if it did, it would have insisted that every country in the EU voted in a fair referendum on each applicable treaty. Only that would have shown the true views of the people of the individual countries, and not those of the governing elite, elected to preserve our constitution.
As stated elsewhere on this site, we have absolutely no problem with the people of Europe and we can think of no continent we would rather be just off the coast of! What we do have a problem with is the un-elected, undemocratic, unaccountable bureaucratic behemoth that is the EU. In 1975 we voted to join what was then called the Common Market, if that is all it had stayed we would probably have been still quite happy. They could have offered the member states referendum when they wanted to offer other services, such as free movement, a monetary union, imposition of a common agricultural and fisheries policies, and how much they would cost us. Did we know back then that by 2013 our membership would be more than £50 million per day, and that in all that time we would be a net contributor, and that countries like Spain and Portugal would from the day they joined be net recipients, and that other countries would actually be paid to join? Did we ever believe we would be relinquishing our sovereignty and surrendering control to an unelected and unaccountable federal superstate?
The truth is out constitution does not allow this abrogation of power, we have Magna Carta 1215 and the Declaration and Bill of Rights 1689 that expressly forbid this ceding of power to a foreign power, unless one of two conditions are met:
- We are defeated in War
- Through the express will of the people
To our certain knowledge neither of those conditions have been met in any of the six EU treaties, with the possible exception of our signature to the treaty of Rome (Edward Heath) when we joined in 1972, however the full ramifications of what the referendum in the UK included were not disclosed, so that is also rendered null and void.
This is the actual wording of the Declaration/Bill of Rights 1689:
No foreign prince, person, prelate, state, or potentate hath, or ought to have, any jurisdiction, power, superiority, pre-eminence, or authority, ecclesiastical or spiritual, within this realm.
This was an agreement between William III of Orange, and the people of Britain, granting William permission to rule, but constraining all future monarchs to be bound to the Declaration/Bill in perpetuity. Parliament was not a party to this Bill and therefore has no power to amend or ignore its contents. To do so would be an act of treason.
We are told that some of the treason laws have been suspended under Tony Blair’s government, that is not possible; to attempt that is itself an act of treason (misprision of treason). Any British citizen who has taken it upon themselves to assume authority to sign any treaty or document granting any power to a foreign state or jurisdiction is guilty of treason against this nation. Any person who has assisted, aided or abetted the signing of treaties is guilty of compounding of treason.
If and when we repatriate the powers unlawfully ceded to a foreign state (EU) then all those who have taken it upon themselves to betray this country, must face charges of treason applied retrospectively.
