I have no doubt that the Europhiles amongst the party apparatchiks would find it inconvenient before the forthcoming General Election if the subject matter of UK abandoning sterling and replacing it with the Euro were to come up once again. It would of course be embarrassing particularly to this Labour Government if this debate were to be reignited by the Eurosceptics.
Yet for all Gordon Brown’s posturing on the subject of currency conversion we are reminded that Article 2 para.4 of the Treaty of Lisbon ratified by the UK without the consent of its people in referendum provides quite clearly that all subscribing members will adopt the Euro now and makes no provision for dissent.
There at a stroke at the beginning of a document which on any reading has ended a thousand years of independence is the final nail in our coffin. We have lost our flag, our right to legislate for ourselves, to maintain the integrity of our own borders, to raise taxes and every other democratic right enjoyed by free countries and for which we have spilt our blood in two world wars. We now have a president not a prime minister.
Our embassies worldwide are at a stroke redundant. The spectre of a European Warrant rules our streets. We are ruled now by nameless, unelected Eurocrats who will increasingly and a rate far more frightening than that of the prolific law making of this present Government spew forth legislation and regulations and so rule from a foreign shore every aspect of our daily lives.
The reward of party failures will not be elevation to the House of Lords but rather a plum job with all perks in the European Commission. The Palace of Westminster and the Houses of Parliament will one day become a splendid tourist hotel no doubt reserving a suite or two for our European masters. We will think, speak and behave to the beat of a foreign drum and dream of glories past. In the words of Pastor Neimoller…is there any one out there who will speak up for us now?
