Questions of legality for the EU Council for today and tomorrow.

1. Have the Parliamentary procedures followed by Cameron to gain consent to EU Trety changes any legality. (The curious procedures in the Commons and the Lords have lacked consistency and coherence and leave this observer clearly of the opinion that they do not!)

2. Can the EU Council proceed, given that the Government of one of its member states (Portugal) fell last evening and that another (Belgium) has been operating without any democratic legitimacy for months.

3. The Lisbon Treaty, from which come the passarelle provisions, now planned to be used to impose non-democratic economic governance across the European Continent, was rejected by the voters of France and Holland in national referenda, was shamefully re-run in a referendum in Ireland and was implemented by constitutional mal-practice in the UK, in defiance of a clear commitment by the three main political parties at a general election to hold a subsequent referendum on that treaty!

I very doubt you will get an answer on these points. They will be too busy stitching us all up with weightier matters.
