Europe gets more power

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I have printed below an email I got from the UKIP, If any members can get this into the Public Domain, then that would help a lot. I feel this has major issues for ALL of us.

    WE RELINQUISH THE VETO ON “JUSTICE & HOME AFFAIRS”

    AT OUR PERIL.



    JHA is not just about stopping burglars. It is the heart of State power, for it includes the power to put people in prison. Whoever holds this power, has everything.



    The EU now wants to take this power. It has asked us to give up the veto, and on 22nd September there will be a meeting of Justice Ministers to decide.



    What the people of Britain must realise is that our continental “partners” subscribe to a very different set of values in matters of justice, from ours. If we are to be governed in this area by a committee deciding by majority vote, their values will be imposed on all and ours will be scrapped.



    None of their systems of justice include our legal safeguards of freedom such as Habeas Corpus and Trial by Independent Jury. Everyone’s personal freedom on the continent is in the hands of an all-powerful career judiciary (a body that is alien to our traditions), who include prosecutors and judges, but exclude defenders. People are put in prison on mere suspicion, with no evidence shown, and there they may rot for months and longer while the prosecutors try to build a case against them. Then they are tried by judges who are colleagues of the prosecutor, not by an independent jury of their peers. The possibilities for abuse in such a system are vast and obvious.



    There is clear evidence that the central bodies of the EU want a single system of criminal justice for all Europe, including the British Isles. In 1997 The EU Commission produced a blueprint for an EU-wide “embryo criminal code”, called Corpus Juris, based entirely on continental, inquisitorial principles. This was to be introduced in a couple of years, but was stopped by a campaign in the Telegraph leading to a pledge to Parliament by Kate Hoey, then Home Office Minister, that the government would veto it if it were ever presented formally.



    Once the veto on JHA is gone, rest assured that there will be no way of stopping Corpus Juris. What is more they will also have acquired the power to beef up Europol and its armed riot batallions, and we will surely see armed foreign policemen in funny uniforms patrolling our high streets, to enforce the new alien laws upon us.



    SAVE HABEAS CORPUS!

    SAVE TRIAL BY JURY!

    NO EUROPEAN PROSECUTOR FOR US!

    NO EU POLICE IN BRITAIN!

    NO TO ALIEN LAWS FROM EUROPE!

    ONLY BRITISH LAW FOR BRITAIN!

    BRITONS NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, SHALL BE SLAVES!
     
  2. Ahh yes the EU strikes again!! No doubt it will benifit the other countries more than it would us!

    Any one else think that the EU seems to be run by France and Germany?

    We've done well for gods knows how long on our own and thats how it should stay!

    Personally so long as the Euro has the monarchs head on it, and Britain retains the right of Royal Prerogative powers, bring on Europe (oh and of course OPEC can begin to list barrels in Euros too :twisted: )
