The first Treason Act in England was enacted by Parliament at the time of Edward III in 1351, which codified the common law of Treason and contained most of acts defined as Treason - it is still in force but has been very significantly amended (Wikipedia - Treason Act 1351) - the main definitions relate to any person planning or imagined: to harm the King or his immediate family, his sons and heirs or their companions; levying war against the King - plus actions against the King's officials, counterfeiting the Great Seal. Privy Seal or coinage of the realm.
The definitions also included that any person "adhered to the King's enemies in his Realm, giving them aid and comfort in his Realm or elsewhere was guilty of High Treason"
The penalty for these offences at the time was Hanging, Drawing and Quartering - the Act is still in force today (without the "drawing and quartering part")
The Act was last used to prosecute William Joyce in 1945, who was subsequently hanged for collaborating with Germany during WWII
More recently the Treason Felony Act (1848) declared that
It is treason felony to "compass, imagine, invent, devise, or intend":
Blair and the New Labour government enacted The Crime and Disorder Act (1998) which amended The Treason Felony Act (1848) - formally abolished the death penalty for the last offences carrying it, namely treason and piracy. The penalty for treason amended to a jail sentence to be decided by the court, with a maximum of life imprisonment - thus protecting himself and his co-conspirators - at least for as long as the UK is under the control of the EU.
For a more up-to-date definition of treason - Oran's Dictionary of Law (1983) defines treason as a "citizen's" actions to help a foreign government overthrow, make war against, or seriously injure the parent nation"
Certainly, Edward Heath's government in the early 1970's and those who sided with Heath, were guilty of High Treason, by holding the sovereignty of the British people hostage on behalf of the EEC(EU), and that is true of any, who since that time, have aided and abetted the EEC(EU) to injure this country - he also threw away our fishing rights in our own waters to the EU, so that our fish stocks could be plundered by other EU member states, particularly Spain - but also Russia (which has an arrangement with the EU) A short review of the just some of extent of the injury that the EU has planned for the UK - encouraged by our own elected Representatives - can be surmised from the EU Constitution which is presented as a one page summary below.
The EU Constitution
The EU's Constitution has had primacy over the UK, as an EU member, since the 1st January, 2009 after the Lisbon Treaty (2007) was Ratified - though the Heath government gave away control of the UK to the EEC(EU) through the signing of the European Communities Act, 1972, in particular by the acceptance of section 2(1) and 2(2). Merkel made sure that none of the member states had a Referendum (Eire was an exception) on the Lisbon Treaty (2007) because the EU Constitution was hidden inside that treaty - the EU Constitution is the Constitution for Europe (2004) which was previously rejected by the French and Dutch in 2005.
EU Constitution: A one page summary
(Unlike the treaties it is in readable English, and reveals the EU's true nature)
I-6 EU Constitution and law has primacy over member states. Abolishes the British Constitution and Westminster.
I-9-2 Accepts the EU Convention on Protection of Human Rights, but not if it affects the EU's powers.
I-10. We will start with both EU and national citizenship. Yes, the EU is to be a nation in its own right.
I-12 Member states may not compete with the EU's powers ("competencies").
I-12-2 In shared powers, member nations may not exercise power unless the EU allows it.
I-12-4 The EU has power over defence. (Notice the repetitions below - the EU demands military power)
I-13 The EU has absolute power on: customs, rules on the single market, monetary policy, fishing, commerce, and international agreements, eg treaties. (Absolute power = exclusive competencies)
I-15 Members must make their employment, social and economic policies comply with the EU's.
I-16-1 The EU has absolute power over foreign policy, security and defence.
I-16-2 All states shall comply with 16-1. So Westminster has no powers unless the EU grants them.
I-18. If the Constitution forgot powers to achieve its ends, the Council of Ministers shall add them.
The EU will have absolute power; Westminster will have no powers of its own; not even those of a county council, because Britain’s 12 EU regions will report to Brussels. The EU will clearly have the power to close Westminster whenever it so decrees.
I-19 Institutions: The Council of Ministers ("The Council") controls all EU Parliament legislation.
I-20 Maximum 750 EU MPs, (MEPs) five year term. Minimum 6, maximum 96, per State.
I-21 The EU Council, consisting of Heads of State, shall direct the EU and its foreign policy.
I-23 The Council of Ministers, one per state, shall direct legislative and budgetary functions.
I-26 The EU Commission is the executive.
I-26-7 The Commission has absolute power. It's only accountability is a censure vote from Parliament.
I-27-1 The Council chooses the President of the Commission, parliament merely ratifies it.
I-27-2 The Council of Ministers appoints Commissioners. Parliament has no say. There is no democracy in the Commission, it is a dictatorship. Only the Commission may propose legislation, MEPs function is merely to push buttons to approve the Commission’s legislation. The EU Parliament, (the only vote we will have left,) is a sham. It's the Soviet system.
I-33 - 36 EU laws, decisions and regulations are binding on member states, and enforced by the EU.
I-41 Re-confirms military control. (Formerly French and British nuclear weapons will be controlled by EU dictators.)
I-4I-3 Each nation is to build up its armed forces. They clearly want the EU to be a military power.
I-43 The EU has the power to mobilise the military assets of all States when it declares an emergency.
I-46-4 "The principal of representative democracy" "Political parties at the European level contribute to EU awareness and express the wishes of citizens." Our Lib-Lab-Con parties will be replaced by EU wide parties with names like Party of European Socialists (PES), and European Peoples Party (EPP).
I-47- 4 Petitions: One million citizens from many countries (ie with difficulty) may merely invite the Commission to propose that the Constitution be implemented. ie, we can only agree. Soviet style.
I-50. Only the Council sometimes, and Parliament, shall meet in public. (All others meet in secret.)
I-59-3 If there is just a "clear risk" of a State breaching I-2 (Human rights), the EU can suspend that State's rights (including voting), but its obligations to the EU remain. (Designed for abuse!)
I-60 "Any State may decide to withdraw from the EU". But terms will be decided by the Council (they keep our oil, fishing, currency reserves, armed forces and nukes?). Requires agreement by the EU Parliament. Article III-325 3 puts more steps in the way. A qualified majority is 72% of the Council. Like Hungary, we can never leave.
In summary, the EU Constitution is similar to the old Soviet Union’s and builds a dictatorship. It starts with human rights platitudes, then conceals its destruction of democracy in its massive 465 pages; while the EU's Corpus Juris legal system steals our rights. Harmonising our laws with the EU over 33 years has given us the laws of a police state, ready for the EU to enforce. The EU’s 111,000 regulations will control our personal lives more closely than were Soviet Citizens. The EU will become our nation, and as a result Britain will be abolished as a nation.
We can avoid this by repealing the 1972 EU Communities Act before we are imprisoned inside.

The "Withdrawal Bill", currently stalled in Parliament is the government's attempt to free the UK from the tyranny of the EU, and it is being stalled by our elected Representatives' in the House of Commons, adding multiple amendments (~300), and it is expected to be frustrated or blocked by the unelected Peers in the House of Lords each one of which has sworn an oath of allegiance to the UK - each one of these who votes against our withdrawal from the EU is guilty of treason - they may claim ignorance of the true nature of the EU though.
Those on the Remain side who work to undermine the Leave campaign are no different from William Joyce, when they side with the EU against the UK, and blithely spout EU propaganda and lies, without any due diligence of the EU, in order to undermine the will of people of the UK - who voted in a majority to leave the EU, including in 421 out of 632 (~67%) of Parliamentary constituencies.
