Freezing in the Dark
In a few months time, in the midst of the next bleak mid-winter, British families could well be freezing in the dark, all thanks to the promise breaking and deepest treachery of their Government and its manifesto promise breaking back bench MPs and Peers joined by the equally treacherous Liberal/Democrats. Why? Start by reading this report on the growing crisis over Iran's nuclear weapons programme.
Now study this map of the narrow entrance to the Arabian Gulf at Quoin Island through which must pass nearly the entire oil exports of the Arabian/Persian Gulf. Note how it is dominated by Iran and remember that test firing of torpedoes recently occurred.
Now read these provisions of the new EU Lisbon Treaty due to come into force on 1st January next year, without the promised British referendum.
TEU Article 5:
2. Under the principle of conferral, the Union shall act only within the limits of the competences conferred upon it by the Member States in the Treaties to attain the objectives set out therein.
Competences not conferred upon the Union in the Treaties remain with the Member States.
1. In the context of the establishment and functioning of the internal market and with regard for
the need to preserve and improve the environment, Union policy on energy shall aim, in a spirit of solidarity between Member States, to:
(a) ensure the functioning of the energy market;
(b) ensure security of energy supply in the Union;

IHT reveals depths of EU's Deceitfulness!
The old Reich clause
By the time this EMU denouement plays out, Ireland will have voted. Lisbon will probably be law. The euro-elites will have prevailed. But history will not be kind to the venture.
It is one thing to nudge the European Project forward by stealth - the "Monnet Method" of fait accompli. It is another to impose a treaty that has already been rejected by people in a direct vote, as the French and Dutch did by emphatic margins in 2005.
We are witnessing Europe's Prague Spring - as my colleague Daniel Hannan puts it - the moment the EU loses its legitimacy. Yes, the system endures. The tribes acquiesce. But the idealism is draining away.
Can anyone really claim that the Lisbon Treaty is rooted in the democratic assent of the French, Dutch, British, Danes, Swedes, Finns, Poles, and Czechs?
We have the spectacle of Gordon Brown refusing to sign the treaty in public because of the potent danger it poses to his Government.
A British prime minister slinks away to a private room to commit Britain to an arrangement that alienates the powers of Parliament - in perpetuity and perhaps illegally - knowing that his people would vote 'no' by crushing margins if given a chance.
How on earth did we arrive at such a sorry state of affairs?

Democracy's destruction crowned by Smith Square's conquest!
The European Parliament and the European Commission have bought the former Tory headquarters near the Houses of Parliament for £20m.
The 25,000 building at 32 Smith Square, to the south of Westminster Palace, will house a new joint headquarters with a conference centre for 150 people.
‘This deal will provide a suitable and convenient Europe House in the UK,’ said Gerard Onesta MEP, vice president of the European Parliament. ‘Our ambition now is to refurbish the building to the highest standards of environmental excellence, fit for the 21st century, to serve the citizens of the UK.’To instruct the citizens of the UK how they are to serve the EU, seems more likely! How the enemies of democracy on the Continent and their fellow travellers in the Labour Party must be relishing this announcement.

Lords debate EU Reform Treaty Referendum
- “stop all this nonsense about its being different from the constitution when it is plainly the same in substance”?—[Official Report, Commons, 5/3/08; col. 1785.]
Having listed all those arguments that are paraded, there is one reason above all why none of these pleas should be accepted: the Government promised a referendum, as did the Liberal Democrats and my own party. We did it in our manifestos in 2005. The parties went even further than the promises in the manifestos. In the Sun, the former Primer Minister, Tony Blair, said,As for the Liberal Democrats—I was going to say the dear old Lib Dems, but I am not sure those are quite the right words—we are getting used to their vagaries. My colleague William Hague had a few words for the anatomical state of their party in the Commons debates. I shall spare their blushes here; I think that these matters are much too vulgar for your Lordships’ House. However, their new leader, Mr Clegg, said at their party conference:
Every independent analysis confirms that the two treaties are virtual replicas. According to the Commons Foreign Affairs Committee, a very distinguished committee, as I know, 240 of the 250 proposals in the constitutional treaty are reproduced identically in this one. That very distinguished committee—by no means dominated by the Opposition; on the contrary, it is dominated by the Government—said that,
- “there is no material difference between the provisions on foreign affairs in the Constitutional Treaty, which the Government made subject to approval in a referendum and those in the Lisbon Treaty on which a referendum is being denied”.

Europe deserves much better than the Lisbon Treaty
The Nutter in Number Ten
Could it be that it is to himself, and not to us, that Mr Brown is unable to acknowledge reality? That he really doesn’t now think he did change his mind about that snap election for fear of losing it? That the main reason for a Budget U-turn was a need he suddenly saw for economic stimulus? That Wendy Alexander was not calling for an earlier referendum on Scottish independence? That the May local and mayoral elections were not a tremendous rebuke to his administration?.....................
.......But a cold, angry repudiation of the evidence itself, a look that suggests a different prism, a different picture; a strange, knotted, jaw-clenching, fact-defying, interview-wrecking rejection of what the rest of us see plain as daylight . . . this disturbs more deeply than everyday mendacity ever can. Where could a national conversation with such a man begin?

Corrupt Commons loses bid for secrecy on swindled expenses
EU Treaty (Amendment) Lord's discussions
Lord Waddington: The noble Lord is entirely missing the point. I am not saying that a person is not entitled to take the view that a referendum is a bad instrument for dealing with circumstances such as that; I am saying that we should all agree that Governments, when they promise referendums, should honour their promises. That is the issue before this Committee. I am rather ashamed by people’s denial that that plain obligation should be carried out."For me the soundest and most forceful point of the debate on the totally unacceptable powers of the European Court of Justice, which as it now exists is outside of any democratic control or constraint, was this quote : "Lord Neill of Bladen: ...........
I am sorry that the Bishops’ Benches are empty tonight because I wanted to remind them of a tremendous expression by one of their predecessors, Bishop Benjamin Hoadly, an early 18th-century divine, who held four bishoprics, starting at Bangor and going on to Hereford, Salisbury and finally Winchester. Preaching to the King in 1717, he said:

All without you ever again having a vote as to who is in charge, what policies might best be followed or indeed how any of your tax payments might best be spent.

Czech President raises Benes Decrees
Misuse of Plenipotentiaries' Powers
"Policy on the United Kingdom's membership of the European Union and the strengthening of relations between member states is entirely a matter for The Queen's Ministers and not one in which it would be constitutionally appropriate for Her Majesty to intervene."
Nevertheless, as we can now all quite freely read in the Official Journal of the European Journal, as linked in my post of earlier today, the Consolidated Version of the Treaty of the European Union (linked here) was signed by Plenipotentiaries appointed by and acting in the name of Her Majesty the Queen. (NOT let it be noted in the name of Parliament).
Among the items resolved in the Preamble (on page 4 of the PDF document linked above) is this:
RESOLVED to establish a citizenship common to nationals of their countries,
another among a long list of horrors, is this:
RESOLVED to achieve the strengthening and the convergence of their economies and to establish an economic and monetary union including, in accordance with the provisions of this Treaty and of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, a single and stable currency,
NOW I am aware that these are items in a Preamble, and am familiar to the point of exhaustation with the claims that they therefore are of no legal effect, so we were repeatedly told on the onward march of the "ever closer union" pledge which also re-appears here. I am also aware that the commitment to a single currency is supposedly hedged by being conditional on the terms of the Treaty - BUT a single and stable currency cannot exist in anything but a SINGLE form, any other currency in use within the EU necessarily negates the claim that either is single!!
How can the Queen given the Coronation Oath and the 1689 Bill of Rights give authority to plenipotentiaries on HER authority to sign a Treaty setting aside her powers?
How could one of those Plenipotentiaries, very recently in the House of Commons insist at PMQs that he still remained committed to a referendum on the Euro Currency, but not the promised vote on this Constitutional Treaty, while using Royal plenipotentiary powers to sign this Treaty deliberately by-passing both parliament and the people to commit the nation to the Euro?
How can the Queen or her Peers in the House of Lords allow such broken pledges to be made in the Commons when the cause is by her own granting of explicit Royal Perogatives to those individuals thereby put clearly in breech of their own promises and commitments?
Something is completely haywire in the present constitutional situation and if it is not yet a crisis it damn well soon should be!

Brown's crisis deepens - can he be ousted before Lisbon's ratification?
"Thank you for your reply to my letter of yesterday, in which you repeated your claim that no-one was calling for a referendum on Scottish independence now.
This morning Wendy Alexander made the following remarks at First Minister’s Questions:
“Will he [Alex Salmond] bring forward a Referendum Bill in next year's legislative programme next week?”
“We believe that the uncertainty is damaging Scotland. I and my colleagues have therefore offered our support to bring this issue forward now”.
“We believe that Scotland deserves a choice sooner rather than later”.
“I have offered Labour's support for an early referendum”
“Why won't he bring the Bill on?”
“The First Minister tells us that over 80% of Scots want a referendum - so why are we still waiting”.
How on earth does any of this match up with your repeated claims that no one is calling for a referendum now, or your claim in Parliament yesterday that you were going to “review the progress” of the Calman Commission “before making any further decisions” on a referendum?
To claim, as you do in your letter to me, that there is no inconsistency between your position and that of Wendy Alexander because “there is nobody seeking legislation at Westminster to have a referendum” is exactly the sort of linguistic gymnastics that is making people confused and even angry with your style of leadership. They desperately want a Prime Minister who can give straight answers to questions.
Anyone comparing what you have claimed, and what Wendy Alexander has repeated again this morning, will conclude that either you have been completely unclear and potentially misleading in your replies to my questions, or you have lost control of your Party – or perhaps it is a combination of the two.
In light of this open challenge to your authority, perhaps you could make it clear who now speaks for the Labour Party on the issue of a referendum?"

EUtopia - Whats your identity?
The EUtopia conference will be held in Enschede at the University of Twente. The main subject of the conference is European Identity. Over three days the participants of the conference will learn about the current European Identity, what it looks like and how it came to be what it is now. There will be discussions about the desire for a common identity and the use of it. By means of lectures, discussions and workshops participants will answer questions such as: if a common identity is desirable what does the ideal European Identity look like? How can this ideal identity be achieved? Or if a common identity has no use, what would Europe look like without it? At the end of the conference, the results of the various discussions will be put together. The results will form a plan on how to create the European identity and what it should look like. This plan will be offered to the European Commission. The results will also be put together in a brochure, which will be offered to the funds and sponsors.
