EU Constitution/Treaty = the Soviet Constitution!

No apologies are made for returning to the subject of the EU's Lisbon Treaty. For it is a topic of supreme importance to our country. Whatever your political beliefs, whether you support the BNP, or whether you're just looking at our site out of idle curiosity, the latest EU Treaty is a subject that you simply cannot afford to ignore!
Even though much has already been written about
this 'Treaty', as well as copious air-time allocated to its dissemination,
the average person is still utterly unaware of what is planned. For
instance, do you realise that this document [written so that its true
intentions were made as hard to understand as it was possible to make
it], signed by Gordon Brown, is almost a carbon copy of the Constitution
of Soviet Russia!
Yet because of the behind the scenes manipulation
of the media by our political elite, too many people still simply cannot
believe that this could be the case. Too many still, naively, retain
some trust in our politicians. 'Surely Gordon & Dave, whatever we might
think of them would never sell us out in this way' say the disbelievers.
To those people - maybe you are one of them - do please look again at
what is being planned for you. For if you don't, you are in for a very
rude awakening. A very rude awakening indeed!
The 'Lisbon Treaty', its foundations built on totalitarian principals, lays the framework for a 'Pan-European Enabling Act' to be put in place. Indeed the EU, as it nears its goal, is revealed to be a hybrid of Nazi and Communist methodologies for making the 'State' supreme! Do realise that the EU is now on the verge of securing total political authority, and once vested with supreme power, it will never, willingly, divest itself of that power.
Time is short - demand that your MP refuses to vote in favour of the Lisbon Treaty when it comes before Parliament for approval. Tell him or her that you'll vote for the BNP if they don't listen. Better still tell your MP that you're going to join the BNP and support it - because they support Britain's survival. Let's face it no other national political party gives that promise!
In conclusion may we draw your attention to the analysis of the Lisbon Treaty by Professor Anthony Coughlan. The Professor is regarded as a left winger and not a rightist, so it will be difficult to smear what he writes, as the ramblings of him a right wing extremist!
The Brussels Journal Thu, 2007-12-13
Today the European Union leaders signed the Lisbon
Treaty. This treaty gives the EU the constitutional form of a state.
These are the ten most important things the Lisbon Treaty does:
1. The Lisbon Treaty establishes a legally quite
new European Union. This is a Union in the constitutional form of a
supranational European State: The Treaty gives this new Union a State
Constitution which is identical in its legal effects to the EU Constitution
that French and Dutch voters rejected in their 2005 referendums. It
does this by amending the two existing basic European Treaties, the
"Treaty on European Union" (TEU) and the "Treaty Establishing the European
Community" (TEC). The former retains its name, while the latter is renamed
the "Treaty on the Functioning of the Union" (TFU). These two amended
Treaties become the de facto Constitution of the new Union which they
constitute or establish, although they are not called a Constitution.
The EU has thus been given a Constitution indirectly rather than in
direct form, as had been proposed in the Treaty which the peoples of
France and Holland rejected in 2005.
2. The Treaty empowers this new European Union
to act as a State vis-à-vis other States and its own citizens: To understand
the change introduced by the Lisbon Treaty one needs to understand that
what we call the European Union today is not a State. It is not even
a legal or corporate entity in its own right, for it does not have legal
personality. The name "European Union" at present is a descriptive term
for all the relations between its 27 Member States. At present these
relations cover both the "European Community" area where supranational
European law is operative, and the "intergovernmental" areas of foreign
policy and justice and home affairs where Member States cooperate with
one another on the basis of keeping their sovereignty and where European
laws do not apply. The Lisbon Treaty changes this situation by creating
a constitutionally and legally quite new EU, while retaining the same
name, the "Union".
3. The Treaty makes us all real citizens of this
new European Union for the first time, instead of our being notional
or honorary European "citizens" as at present: A State must have citizens
and one can only be a citizen of a State. Citizenship of the European
Union at present is stated to "complement" national citizenship, the
latter being clearly primary, not least because the present EU is not
a State. It is not even a corporate entity that can have individuals
as members, not to mind citizens. By transforming the legal character
of the Union, the Lisbon Treaty transforms the meaning of Union citizenship.
4. To hide the enormity of the change, the same
name - European Union - will be kept while the Lisbon Treaty changes
fundamentally the legal and constitutional nature of the Union. By this
means the importance of the proposed change is kept hidden from the
people: The change in the constitutional nature of both the Union and
its Member States will be made in three legal steps that are set out
in the Treaty:
5. It creates a Union Parliament for the Union's new citizens: The Lisbon Treaty/EU Constitution makes Members of the European Parliament, who at present are "representatives of the peoples of the Member States", into "representatives of the Union's citizens" (Art.9a, amended TEU). This illustrates the constitutional shift the Treaty makes from the present European Union of national States and peoples to the new Federal Union of European citizens and their national states - the latter henceforth reduced constitutionally and politically to provincial or regional status.
6. It creates a Cabinet Government of the new Union: The Treaty turns the European Council, the quarterly "summit" meetings of Member State Heads of State or Government, into an institution of the new Union, so that its acts and failures to act will, like all other Union institutions, be subject to legal review by the EU Court of Justice. Legally speaking these summit meetings of the European Council will no longer be "intergovernmental" gatherings of Prime Ministers and Presidents outside supranational European structures. As part of the new EU´s institutional framework, they will instead be constitutionally required to "promote the Union's values, advance its objectives, serve its interests" and "ensure the consistency, effectiveness and continuity of its policies and actions." (Art. 9 amended TEU). They will also "define the general political direction and priorities thereof" (Art.9b). The European Council thus becomes in effect the Cabinet Government of the new Federal EU, and its individual members will be primarily obliged to represent the Union to their Member States rather than their Member States to the Union.
7. It creates a new Union political President: The federalist character of the European Council "summit" meetings in the proposed new Union structure is further underlined by the provision which gives the European Council a permanent political President for up to five years (two and a half years renewable once) (Art.9b). There is no gathering of Heads of State or Government in any other international context which maintains the same chairman or president for several years while individual national prime ministers and prime ministers come and go. The federal character of the new President is emphasised also by the Treaty provision which forbids that person from holding any national office and which lays down that he/she shall "ensure the external representation of the Union".
8. It creates a civil rights code for the new
Union's citizens: All States have codes setting out the rights of their
citizens. The EU Charter of Fundamental Rights will be that. It will
be made legally binding by the new Treaty and will be an essential part
of the new Union's constitutional structure (Art.6, amended TEU). The
Charter is stated to be binding on the Union's own institutions and
on Member States in implementing Union law. This limitation to EU law
and to the EU institutions is unrealistic however, because
9. It makes national Parliaments subordinate to the new Union: The Treaty underlines the subordinate role of National Parliaments in the constitutional structure of the new Union by stating that "National Parliaments shall contribute actively to the good functioning of the Union" by various means set out in Article 8c, amended TEU. The imperative "shall" implies an obligation on National Parliaments to further the interests of the new Union. National Parliaments have in any case already lost most of their law-making powers to the EC/EU. The citizens who elect them have lost their powers to decide these laws too. The provision of the Treaty that if one-third of the National Parliaments object to a Commission proposal, the Commission must reconsider it but not necessarily abandon it, is small compensation for the loss of democracy involved by the loss of 68 vetoes by National Parliaments as a result of other changes proposed by the Lisbon Treaty.
10. It gives the new Union self-empowerment powers:
These are shown by:
Conclusion: It is hard to think of any major
function of a State which the new European Union will not have once
the Lisbon Treaty is ratified. The main one seems to be the power to
make its Member States go to war against their will. The Treaty does
provide that the EU may go to war while individual Member States may
"constructively abstain". The obligation on the Union to "provide itself
with the means necessary to attain its objectives and carry through
its policies" (Art. TEC/TFU 269 a), which means raising its "own resources"
to finance them, may be regarded as conferring on it wide taxation and
revenue-raising powers, although these will require unanimity to exercise.
As regards the State authority of the new Union,
it is embodied in the Union' s own executive, legislative and judicial
institutions: the European Council, Council of Ministers, Commission,
Parliament and Court of Justice. It is also embodied in the Member States
and their authorities as they implement and apply EU law and interpret
and apply national law in conformity with Union law. Member States will
be constitutionally required to do this under the Lisbon Treaty. Thus
EU "State authorities" as represented for example by soldiers and policemen
in EU uniforms on our streets are not needed as such.
All stable States are founded on such communities
where people speak a common language and mutually identify with one
another as one people - a "We". In the EU however there is no European
people or "demos", except statistically. The Lisbon Treaty is an attempt
to construct a highly centralised European Federation artificially,
from the top down, out of Europe's many nations, peoples and States,
without their free consent and knowledge. If there were to be a European
Federation that is democratic and acceptable, the minimum constitutional
requirement for it would be that its laws would be initiated and approved
by the directly elected representatives of the people either in the
European Parliament or the National Parliaments. Unfortunately, neither
the Lisbon Treaty nor the EU Constitution it establishes contain any
The peoples of Europe do not want this kind of highly centralized Federal European Union whose most striking feature is that it is run virtually entirely by committees of politicians, bureaucrats and judges, none of whom are directly elected by the people. The Constitutional Treaty setting it up has already been rejected by the French and the Dutch in 2005. As French President Nicolas Sarkozy has admitted, the Prime Ministers and Presidents have agreed among themselves on no account to have referendums on the Renamed Constitutional Treaty, for that would be rejected everywhere again. Only the Irish are enabled to have their say on it because of the constitutional case taken before the Supreme Court by the late Raymond Crotty. That action by that great Irishman stopped the State's politicians of that time from ratifying a previous European Treaty, the Single European Act, in an unconstitutional manner.

Posted by hrhdtr | December 27, 2007, 5:19 pm Quite agree, https://www.eutruth.org.uk is well worth looking at if not a must for any Nationalist. The problem is that all the above about the Treaty of Lisbon is totally true, most people would dismiss it as fantasy; 'our politicians wouldn't surrender our hard fought and won sovereignty - would they?' Unfortunately they will and they have, Brown promised a referendum, he lied to us, Blair as we now know has been one of the biggest political liars ever recorded, this government should be brought down, we must find the will and the way to do it.
Posted by illigitimus | December 27, 2007, 6:22 pm I suggest that we need to campaign for proportional representation in order to revoke the E.U treaty and rid this country of our present corrupt political masters. Perhaps we stand more chance of winning parliamentary seats this way?

Posted by FLYING COLOURS | December 27, 2007, 7:47 pm The EU was illegal under any court of law. It's original members signed totally blank papers, then made up the rules as they went along. Some have called it a Fascist state, some a Communist state, but if you think about it logically, it is part one and the other. Fascism is all about big money industrialists dictating to the the government, and the Communist one is about totalitarian rule by extremist left wingers at the top, and hidden bankers behind the scenes, Whatever it is, and which particular side of the coin the reader happens to dislike the most, it matters not one jot. Under English law, the Act of Settlement, the Magna Carter, and the Bill of Rights, WE, the people, have an option - simply do not recognise any laws made by our so-called politicians, and once enough people do so this, we are out for good.
Posted by BC1959 | December 27, 2007, 8:30 pm Question Time on Thursday, 13 December, 2007 said it all for me. A half-hearted objection to the actual consequences of the 'treaty' followed by a puerile red herring discussion about the possible reasons why Gordon Brown didn't show up on time. They're all in on it folks. All sitting pretty in Westminster. Safely out of reach of the grotty English public they despise and betray. Stealing the results of our labour from us, under threat of force, so they can spend it on keeping us under control. Spending our money on replacing us. On destroying us as a nation. Living it up on our money whilst we are forced to put up with the results of their treachery. Ordering us to 'tolerate' their ordure whilst they flush us away. The arrogance and overconfidence is palpable. Hope the fall's a hard one. Very hard.
