Too Much for Any One Man to Take

You know, watching two hours of Gordon Brown being questioned by the Liaison Committee and then a speech by Al Gore is more than anyone should have to take. I think I need to lie down before I summon up the courage to watch Gordon Brown sign the new EUConstitution Reform Treaty. I wonder if we will get one of his famous grins?

Today a man who has not been elected to the position of Prime Minister will sign a Treaty that the people of Britain do not want. He will skulk away from the cameras, and in some shady Portuguese corner he will put his traitorous mark upon a document that will steal Britain's sovereignty.

There is only one reason that Gordon Brown does not want us to have a referendum:

WE WILL VOTE NO. When Gordon Brown signs that Treaty today, he will be pushing his pen through the heart of democracy.

Now that Bean has decided to become mayor of Britain when can we expect all mp,s and civil servants working in the Westminster complex be made redundant/sacked so we can then tear down the HOC and make it into a fee paying car park,watched Bean on tv he looks a mess,double bags under his eyes,hair looked dirty he didn't look as if he shaved properly,talking a load of rubbish,very sad day today ,England,Scotland,Wales and Northern Ireland taken over by the Germans and French without a shot being fired,

Nothing about the Policy Exchange debacle Iain?

According to Brown we are still a democracy because we still have elections.

Well, let me add to your woes, since misery loves company.

The BoE has lowered the required collateral level for lending to banks to junk.

What this means is that the banks can now foist any olde junk onto the tax payer, this is Northern Rock on steroids -- Darling is nationalising the bad debts of the banks, whilst their profits stay private.

Which one is worse --- signing away sovereignity or signing away the remanants of the UK's wealth?

Behold Britannnia in a zimmerframe, with dentures and begging bowl.

When "they" make my life worse I'll believe you, but until then you're wasting your efforts.

most people don't care two hoots if the comitology committee sits three times less per month.

Blathering on about personal grooming doesn't do Camoron's hopes any good either.

Judging by the smug look on all the other leaders signing this constitution I'd suggest you not bother watching the great betrayal this afternoon.

Ed said...

The BBC is claiming that "EU leaders insist the two texts are in no way equivalent.".

Cherie Blair was heard saying "well that's a lie"

It didn't have to be like this. Prosperous and independent, outside the European Union, we could have been running rings round the lot of them. While they sat in Brussels, building their legislation mountain, we should have been running our own country in our own way.

My prediction: In twenty years' time we shall be seriously looking at the options for pulling out, and the auditors will still not have signed off the accounts.

Hang him up by his testicles....or flog him to death. That would at least make one of these elections he talks of (but avoids like the plague), more likely to happen.

Gordon Brown has NO mandate to sign this treaty. He has reneged on his Manifesto commitment to hold a referendum and until he does any signature is morally worthless.

"meanwhile" Frankfurt would have been enjoying Capital of Finance status, and you lot wiould have been blaming the miners.

Big difference th', there's a limit to the damage Al Gore can do whereas there's no limit on what the awful Brown and "New" Labour can do.

Gauleiter Braun, all hail.

So, James@12.49, we can take it that you haven't lost your 'guaranteed by the Govt' final pension, you are neither a medical student, a midwife, a victim of crime, a military man, a parent defrauded by the Child Benefit system nor someone hoping to study physics, nor indeed a taxpayer or a patriot (oh, sorry, probably dirty word to you).

simon said...

The problem we all have is that Gordon Bean actually believes his own rubbish. Everything is for the good in the quest for his utopia. This man is not only shamelessly unelected, he's utterly bonkers.

Ralph said...

I would definitely vote yes on an EU referendum so don't tar your readers with the same brush!

No one ever gets elected to the position of PM - your knowledge of the UK's parliamentary system is shocking. You vote for your local MP, and the party with the most MPs has their leader at PM. Labour changed their leader: unless you live in Sedgefield, you didn't vote for Blair, either, you voted for your MP.

"We have suffered a total and unmitigated defeat...you will find that in a period of time which may be measured by years, but may be measured by months,the [United Kingdom]will be engulfed in the [European Project]. We are in the presence of a disaster of the first magnitude...we have sustained a defeat without a war, the consequences of which will travel far with us along our road...we have passed an awful milestone in our history, when the whole equilibrium of the [British Constitution] has been deranged, and that the terrible words have for the time being been pronounced against the [present British Government] "Thou art weighed in the balance and found wanting". And do not suppose that this is the end. This is only the beginning of the reckoning. This is only the first sip, the first foretaste of a bitter cup which will be proffered to us year by year unless by a supreme recovery of moral health and martial vigour, we arise again and take our stand for freedom as in the olden time."

And on this day, we have an edition of Question Time on BBC1.

The three politician members of the panel are:

Hazel Blears - rabid EU-phile

Charles Kennedy - rabid EU-phile

Chris Patten - rabid EU-phile and long-time diner at the Brussels trough.

So lots of robust criticism for Brown's treachery ....

James said...

Judith -
If I were everything on your ridiculously compiled list, I would still be able to live ny life completely unaffected by this treaty.

Ignorance is the dirty word that comes to mind, and yes i am a patriot - not one of the "proud to be ashamed to be British" kind that you line up with.

Anon @2:49,

You are talking out of your a*se.

Most people don't know and don't care who their local MP is. Most people vote for that nice man on the Telly. In the last three elections that nice man was T Blair not G Bean.

Perhapss Brown ought to just go and enter the annual competition biggest liar at the Wasdale Head Inn. However, he will probably have to push past Harried Harpic, Alexander i and ii, P Hain to win the title.

James said...

Less than 10% of Daily Telegraph readers care enough to have signed their petition.

Says it all.

James said...

Of the Telegraph's website traffic (11.1 million unique users) 42153 have managed to click the button to sign the petition for a referedum. That's around one third of one per cent.

I hadn't realised the Telegraph was so Pro-Europe!
