ZANU NL Response to the Lisbon Treaty petition

In the UK, the Lisbon Treaty has now completed its passage through both Houses of Parliament in the UK following 25 days of debate. The Bill received Royal Assent on 19 June and the UK ratified the treaty on 16 July.

We believe the treaty would be good for the UK and good for the EU. This treaty adjusts existing treaties, in the same way as previous EU amending treaties.

However, European treaty change rightly requires unanimity across all EU Member States. That is why the ‘no’ vote on the treaty in the Irish referendum on 12 June is important, and needs to be respected.

As the Foreign Secretary made clear in the House of Commons on 16 June:

“The rules of the treaty and the EU are clear. All 27 Member States must ratify the treaty for it to come into force. …There is no question of ignoring the Irish vote or bulldozing Irish opinion. Ireland clearly cannot be bound by changes which it has not ratified. Equally there is no appetite for a return to years of institutional negotiation. The EU as a whole needs to find a way forward for all countries that allows the EU to focus on the big policy issues that confront us.”

The Irish government has made it clear that they need time to analyse the result and its implications, and to consult widely at home and abroad. At the European Council on 19/20 June, EU Heads of State and Government agreed with the Irish Government’s proposal that they should reflect on the result of the referendum and then submit a report to the European Council in October. In the meantime the Council, including Ireland, has noted that the ratification processes are continuing in all of the other Member States.
My bold ... and I foolishly thought that the Irish people told them to go f*ck themselves!
The European Soviet Union, the 'Anschluss' for short, does not, repeat NOT, brook disagreement. The whole expensive charade depends and feeds upon ignorance and a total lack of interest. (Name your M.E.P !)

The sexually deviant traitor Heath, lied to the nation when he asked us to 'join' the 'trading organisation' the EEC all those years ago. He ought, subsequently, to have been arrested and tried for treason. Thereafter he should have suffered the reputed fate of Edward II.

There has been only one political leader since - Thatcher, M. She saw clearly what the Franco/German axis was up to. She understood the dangers to our hard won freedoms by the Paris/Berlin alliance. Dominance, dominance pure and simple was their aim.

Since the lady, we have been governed by a 'nice guy', a 'grinning spiv' and a scowling, surly, morose 'know-nothing' thick, spendthrift destroyer of the nation's finances.

The 'nice guy' remains - just that.

The 'grinning spiv' had an agenda - well discussed on this site - that is to be President of the European Soviet Union - The Anschluss.

The 'thicko'? Well, just let us study the by-election results.

As for the post title, I'm marginally surprised that this bunch of third-raters, currently masquerading as a government, know what the 'Lisbon Treaty' is.

For their guidance it is a 'busted flush'.

Sorry, I forgot that voters and democracy are unknown to the faceless, unaccountable, unelected, expense gobbling rubbish ruling us in Brussels.
