Brown makes the Queen sign away our sovereignty?

  1. Taken from the Daily Express -

    GORDON Brown was last night accused of betraying Britain with a “grubby”surrender to Brussels.

    Under a cloak of secrecy, the Government finally ratified the Lisbon Treaty earlier this week and committed the country to a new deluge of European meddling.

    In a sign of the Prime Minister’s personal embarrassment over the betrayal, the historic step was only made public yesterday – 24 hours after the covert ceremony had taken place.

    The instrument of ratification was signed by the Queen, who had no choice. Because Mr Brown had signed the treaty, she was constitutionally forced to follow suit.

    The document was then flown in a diplomatic bag to Rome and delivered to the Italian Foreign Ministry at noon on Wednesday.

    Mr Brown was last night facing widespread revolt and even the threat of further legal action after forcing the treaty into law without the promised referendum.

    Tory Shadow Foreign Secretary William Hague said: “Gordon Brown has no democratic or moral authority to sign Britain up to what is a renamed EU constitution. This move is a total breach of trust with the British people and a flagrant breach of his solemn election promise. It is a sign of how arrogant and out of touch this Government has become that it is totally uninterested in what the British people want on Europe.

    “It also means that the Government is joining in the ugly bullying of the Irish people, who have clearly rejected this treaty in a referendum. Trying to push ahead with the treaty shows an utter lack of respect for the Irish voters’ democratic decision.

    “As long as the Irish decision is not reversed, the EU treaty will not be in force at the next general election. A new Conservative Government would then take back the instrument of ratification and put the treaty to a referendum, recommending a ‘No’ vote.

    “That is the honourable and democratic thing to do.”

    He pointed out that Mr Brown signed the treaty last year in a bizarre solo ceremony separate from the EU’s 26 other national leaders.

    Mr Hague added: “Whether it’s Brown turning up late to sign the treaty or slipping out the news that they’ve finally handed over the crucial document, Labour has never had the guts to come out and put a case for the repackaged EU constitution.”

    Tory backbencher Douglas Carswell, a leading Euro-sceptic, said: “The way this treaty was signed was underhand and grubby and a betrayal of the UK. It shows this treaty has no proper legitimacy. And I think it also shows how useless our Parliament is.

    “While MPs were debating their expenses and deciding whose snout should go in which trough, another serious erosion of British sovereignty was taking place.”

    Lorraine Mullally, of the Euro-sceptic think-tank Open Europe, said: “The Government has been dishonest and cowardly about this right from the beginning.

    “First Gordon Brown signed it in Brussels in secret and now they’ve ratified it on the sly. They are ashamed of it because they know people don’t want it. Gordon Brown has behaved in a cowardly way because he is scared of the voters.”

    Andy Smith, of the Campaign For An Independent Britain, said: “The whole history of this treaty is one of trickery and deceit. They reckon they can slip it through.”

    A Foreign Office spokesman last night claimed the timing of the British ratification was dictated by the administrative process of drawing up the documents and getting the required signatures.

    “Ratification is a matter for each individual EU nation. There is no question at all of Ireland being bullied,” the spokesman added.

    Words cannot express my revulsion for this traitor.

    Can we stop this man?????????
  2. Fu!ck of brown and take the rest of your treasonous party with you.

    You are beyond redemption in my book. You are a traitor to this country, a walking insult to better people than you will ever be who gave their lives to keep this country free. I hope to God one day you stand trial for it.

    How do you sleep at night?
  3. Where the FCUK is a Guy Fawkes-type suicide bomber when you need him?

    I'll put in money for the HE! :pissedoff:
  4. Didn't parliament vote to ratify? Isn't Brown just doing what parliament says?
  5. yeah, and the cnut also promised a referendum on it!
  6. If the Queen appoints the PM, surely she can also dismiss the PM? What stops people from petitioning the Queen?
  7. Well, she answers all her mail (maybe using her ladies in waiting) so why don't you write to her and suggest it.

    Bet you get a FOT
  8. It was a clear manifesto statement that there would be a referendum.
    In addition, under the Treason Act there is no doubt that signing the Lisbon Treaty is an act of Treason.
    Unsurprisingly Brown intends to get rid of the Treason Act as its "out of date and not really needed"
    More likely to prevent his future prosecution for it.

    Two World Wars failed to achieve what Brown intends.
    The man should hang
  9. This should be followed up in the house urgently with a vote of no confidence in Gordo and a snap general election called.

  10. Now that would get my vote!!!
  11. What a cvnt, about time we had a coup, after all the lives given defending this countries freedom and that back-stabbing b@rstard gives it away with a signiture.

    Hang him or better, use him for Bayonet practice.
  12. How does that work then?
  13. Is it time to start a petition calling for a vote of no confidence in the government?

    edit, doh, much too slow!!
  14. We could but sadly Parliament is under no obligation to take any heed.
    The only people with the legal ablity to get the man out of office (the Labour Party) are to busy protecting the trough to do so.
    So much for democracy huh?
    A man nobody voted for, commiting Treason against the state and a raving fukiking loon to boot, and we can't do anything to stop him for two years.
  15. Stilts said write to the Queen, perhaps she agrees with you and will give him the boot.
