The Queen and the EU Constitution - Continued
Until the signing of the Lisbon Treaty member states effectively pooled their sovereignty. After the Lisbon Treaty was signed, by David Miliband and Brown in 2007 - and by the Queen in 2008 (as she was required to do constitutionally).
Once the Lisbon Treaty was ratified in 2009, it gave the EU its own legal personality as a supranational state; superior to its constituent member states.
As a result of the Lisbon Treaty the former nation states became provinces, or regions, of the EU: the EU will have the power to negotiate treaties, trade deals (eg TTIP) and other arrangements without any considerations for the welfare of the individual, subservient provinces or their populations.
The Lisbon Treaty (2007) also sets out the basis for its own EU Foreign Service (which now occupy our former foreign embassies worldwide), EU Foreign Minister, EU President and requires the former nation states to provide support: civilian and military for, and participation in, the formation of EU armed forces; and Brussels will have control of our nuclear weapons.
The Lisbon Treaty formally removed any pretence that the UK is a Sovereign nation, by giving the EU primacy over all laws of the former nation states (including our English Common Law protections). We have all become citizens of the EU (including the Queen) and each of us must obey all laws that the EU has brought into existence, and show loyalty to its authority.
Therefore, the Queen is also required to show the same deference to the EU as the rest of us and, as such, she cannot act in anyway which might be construed as being detrimental to the EU cause.
in 2001, It became an offence to criticise the EU or its leading figures:
Euro-court outlaws criticism of EU
By Ambrose Evans-Pritchard in Brussels: Daily Telegraph 12:00AM GMT 07 Mar 2001
THE European Court of Justice ruled yesterday that the European Union can lawfully suppress political criticism of its institutions and of leading figures, sweeping aside English Common Law and 50 years of European precedents on civil liberties.
The EU's top court found that the European Commission was entitled to sack Bernard Connolly, a British economist dismissed in 1995 for writing a critique of European monetary integration entitled The Rotten Heart of Europe.
The ruling stated that the commission could restrict dissent in order to "protect the rights of others" and punish individuals who "damaged the institution's image and reputation". The case has wider implications for free speech that could extend to EU citizens who do not work for the Brussels bureaucracy.
The court called the Connolly book "aggressive, derogatory and insulting", taking particular umbrage at the author's suggestion that Economic and Monetary Union was a threat to democracy, freedom and "ultimately peace".
However, it dropped an argument put forward three months ago by the advocate-general, Damaso Ruiz-Jarabo Colomer, which implied that Mr Connolly's criticism of the EU was akin to extreme blasphemy, and therefore not protected speech.
Mr Connolly, who has been told to pay the European Commission's legal costs, said the proceedings did not amount to a fair hearing. He said: "We're back to the Star Chamber and Acts of Attainder: the rights of defendants are not respected or guaranteed in any way; the offence of seditious libel has been resurrected."
Mr Colomer wrote in his opinion last November that a landmark British case on free speech had "no foundation or relevance" in European law, suggesting that the European Court was unwilling to give much consideration to British legal tradition.
Mr Connolly now intends to take his case to Europe's other court, the non-EU European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. - the case illustrates three important points: (1) the totalitarian instinct of the EU (2) the wide ranging remit of the ECJ (which is the EU's Treaty arbitrator and enforcer - and obviously not independent or unbiased) and (3) that some high officials in the EU legal system see the EU as a religion (or a cult)
The Six Treaties
The combined result of the signing of the six European Treaties, since 1972, is that the EU has become a Dictatorship with the laws of a Police State, which operates on the Soviet constitutional model.
With an un-elected and unaccountable EU Commission; the font of most legislation, an unaccountable Council of Ministers and an unaccountable bank; the European Central Bank (ECB), each of which meet in secret; and soon an EU Army, EU wide currency (the Euro), EU Flag, EU Anthem and EU Oath (still there, just in the background), the EU is well on its way to becoming an empire in its own right.
Remember what Brown stated after he refused to give a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty?
"If we needed a referendum we would have one. But I think most people recognise that there is not a fundamental change taking place as a result of this amended treaty."
Gordon Brown The UK Prime Minister, interviewed by the BBC, 24th September 2007
These are just a few of the effects of the EU Treaties, which also include our police and our armed forces being required to swear allegiance to the EU, as their new "Sovereign".
Anyone considering voting to stay in the EU should think very carefully; weighing up the relatively minor economic effects of leaving the EU (see "The limited Impact of EU Membership on the Barriers to Trade) versus the enormous impact of staying in, and the subsequent total loss of our individual freedom and a future as "Ecofodder" for multinational corporations.
When the EU believes it is sufficiently well placed to take over the former nation states overtly, it will do exactly that: with its own EU Public Prosecutor, EU Corpus Juris legal system and Paramilitary Police (with Army back-up) - with one (or more) of the major "Social Media" organisation as its propaganda arm - perhaps Nick Clegg will be in charge of propaganda..
So far, it has been operating covertly, since 1972, from within the "stooge" administrations in the UK; which includes the Tories, Labour, LibDems, SNP, Greens, Civil Service, Local Councils, and sections of the Media, etc.
