It is very interesting to see how animated the Lords become when their own self-interests in the EU, and the interests of their beloved EU itself, are under threat, but not in the defence of Britain and its interests.
Does anyone remember the Lords being "Up in Arms" about the fact that the Lisbon Treaty (2007)? which represents the greatest threat that Britain and the British people have ever faced, was Ratified without Parliamentary scrutiny by New Labour, under Gordon Brown, or, as anyone ever heard of the Lords objecting to any EU Law that has been pushed into UK law - those which are of advantage to the EU, but not to Britain - that is pretty well all such Laws?
Of course not, because they can benefit from a cornucopia of rewards from the EU for selling their fellow countrymen and women into abject poverty and subjugation, at the hands of the foreign power that is the EU - they are little more than a collection of Lord "Haw-Haw"s, desperate to help that foreign power, in any way that they can.
But has it always ever been thus? Yesterday, one contributor (Tom Drew) to a discussion on the behaviour of the Lords, provided a copy of the following, referring to Parliament, as a whole:-
"It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice; ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.
Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess?
Ye have no more religion than my horse; gold is your God; which of you have not barter'd your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?
Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defil'd this sacred place, and turn'd the Lord's temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices?
Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation; you were deputed here by the people to get grievances redress'd, are yourselves gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors.
In the name of God, go!"
Oliver Cromwell - April 20, 1653
Is there much doubt that Blair's return from Brussels, after his hugging" session with the GodFather (Juncker), spurred the recent activities of the Upper House? and is there any doubt that he, and the EU offered their support and succour for their efforts? - perhaps suggesting that having the House of Lords abolished should not cause any concern, since they would be very well "looked after" by their Comrades in the EU.
The European Arrest Warrant (EAW)
On another matter, Amber Rudd is trying to keep Britain in the EAW system - this is part of the EU's Corpus Juris, Legal system which is taking away our Common Law rights and should be opposed at every opportunity, since it is only effective against British citizens, and in favour of the EU. It does nothing to counter terrorism or anything else, of use to this country - we can't get rid of terrorists because of Human Rights legislation.
Rudd's insistence on keeping this should be viewed as very worrying, and perhaps signals that the government is more for Remain than it is letting on. For more about Corpus Juris and the EAW please see Corpus Juris and English Common Law
