A simple poll and a simple question, you have 7 days to cast your vote.

Do you agree with membership of the EU by Britain as defined by the Treaty of Lisbon.

Yes or No. Shoot.

Mate, on this site I expect that's what the majority are saying as they click 'no' ;)

I voted no out of principle. The principle being that the Labour Party promised a referendum on the issue of the Lisbon Treaty and reneged when they thought they couldn't get the result they wanted.

Had we had a referendum, I may well have voted yes.

I voted no on the principle that we are one of 27 nations, 26 of which would happily see us just as the Americans do - captured and handicapped, rather than free and strong.

I voted no on the basis that the EU has been brought about by subversion of democracy on the part of the political and commercial elite and by the denial of the will of the people of Europe. It's future has parallels with Yugoslavia, but it won't be tied together as strongly, and its inevitable destruction as an entity will be a good deal more costly in lives.

Unless this project has the support of the majority of the people of Europe at its creation, rather than just the elites that feed off it, it is bound for an explosive decompression - if not now, within 50 years at most. It doesn't have that support, and it's never had it.

The EEC that we all agreed to join was in effect a free trade area (or that's what we were told at the time), although why our membership of EFTA and the Commonwealth had to suffer is beyond me.

The EEC has suffered from 'mission creep' which our politicos have apparently not noticed or perhaps ignored. Do we, as a nation, agree with this? Unfortunately we have not been asked, and apparently will not be asked if the current politburo have anything to do with it.

BTW the largest free trade organisation the world has ever seen existed one hundred years ago... It was called The British Empire

No. Ultimate authority should remain within Judical and Parliamentary institutions that are directly accountable to the British people. Our National Sovereignty is not the Labour Government's to give away and I don't understand how it can even be legal, let alone moral.

Well of course you would vote 'yes'… the EU is nothing but a recreation of Hitlers 'Europa'… New Labour's Champagne Socialists has so much in common with teh National Socialists.

And how does the Lisbon Treaty affect any of that?

A least Hitler was elected... President Blair is going to be foisted on us... and all those European flags on the South Bank a few years ago did have something of the swastika about them. Personally I don't want anything to do with the EU. It will become interesting when they move some Eurcorps contingent into Aldershot ... against our will.


We were promsied a refurendum, where is it?

Does anyone actually know what they are voting for/against? i reckon if the question was set so the no meant more integrated into europe they would probably waltz through.
Ask most poeple what they'd vote and is alaways a no even when pressed they havent a clue what the question is.
