Why bother with the one true barbarous relic - democracy - when good ole' fascism will suffice. As The Telegraph's Bruno Waterfield reports, "EU to avoid any votes - parliamentary or popular on treaty change - via obscure Lisbon Treaty 'passerelle' clause, Art. 126 (14) via protocol 12. "This decision does not require ratification at national level. This procedure could therefore lead to rapid and significant changes," says confidential Van Rompuy text. Funnily enough, only Britain will have to have a parliamentary vote under the Tories recent Sovereignty Act even though it is eurozone only changes." And that is how a bunch of corrupt kleptocratic incompetent eurocrats usurp all power in a regime now entirely controlled by Goldman Sachs. Unless, of course, the UK once again stops the insurgent takeover of the insolvent continent by the squid.And don't delude yourself. It is not just shady, faceless eurocrats in the grey, soulless buildings of Brussels.
Your government (and mine) is approving this, our parliament will go along with this. Our MSM is telling us this is a good thing, this blatant disregard for democracy and self-determination. We are actively gagged by the people we entrusted with the positions they hold. How is not a betrayal? How is this not treason of the worst kind?
To paraphrase Dr. North: And the reason we don't rise up and hang all of them from bridges and lampposts is...?
[UPDAT001] According to WfW any changes made, be it in the form of amended protocols or amended treaty text, requires unanimous approval AND national ratification. Furthermore, a 'passerelle' can't be used if that confers new competences. Which would mean that the EUnion is breaking its own rules, transgressing its own legislation. Again. We are ruled by criminals!
