On the BBC news website: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/4206955.stm So now we're un-patriotic if we don't want to be ruled by the un-elected dictatorship that is the EU. Welcome to the new version of Pravda in the Socialist Republic of Britian, part of the Union of the European Socialist Republics (would be UESR, but will be rearranged to the French spelling anyway). The word T*sser springs to mind! What the EU constitution really means is the elimination of our legal system including Habeus Corpus (this means that we get detention without trial - which given the fuss about the Belmarsh detainees , I thought was supposed to be a BAD thing!), the elimination of our seat on the UN Security Council (despite our influence with the Commonwealth as well as Europe), further erosion of our laws and our abilities to control them (Acquis Communautaire), eventual elimination of the pound and acceptance of the Euro with the corresponding loss of our ability to control our economy (despite the independence of the Bank of England being one of the better decisions of this Government).
