Juncker’s smug references to the Lisbon Treaty when justifying his vision of an EU superstate and military illustrates the danger faced by governments of nations that signed up to it. He is saying the direction the EU elite is taking has already tied the hands of Europe’s democracies. They are to become devolved committees subject to absolute EU Brussels rule in due course.
Essentially he and the rest of his anti-democratic institution are saying the EU’s respective previous governments should have read, understood and told you what they were signing you up to. Now you are mine, unquestionably mine and your previous governments are no longer around to argue the toss with the EU’s Dictatorship.
Understanding why many consider Gordon Brown’s signing of The Lisbon Treaty treason against the British State becomes ever clearer with each vowel and syllable uttered by the ideologically driven EU Commission and its massive overpaid army of EUrocrats.
‘EU is completely INTRANSIGENT!’ Bone rages at Brussels & says THIS is how talks will end
A CONSERVATIVE MP has insisted the UK will be forced to walk away from Brexit talks empty handed because it is not in Brussels chiefs’ interests to agree a deal.

The name of a quiet medieval town in Hungary – Visegrad – has in recent times become synonymous with the word “rebellion” in Brussels.
The Visegrad Group, also known as the Visegrad Four, or V4, is a cultural and political alliance of four central European states, comprising, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia, for the purpose of furthering their European integration, as well as for advancing military, economic and energy cooperation with each other. They have always been part of a single civilization sharing cultural and intellectual values and common roots in diverse religious traditions, which they wish to preserve and further strengthen. They have now emerged as the greatest modern defenders of European civilisation by undertaking to deploy armed forces to protect their borders.
With a slew of big international news stories, freak weather and a terrorist incident dominating the media this last week, it’s easy to forget that it was just a matter of days ago that the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill secured its Second Reading in the House of Commons.
Writing for BrexitCentral today, the recently-elected Conservative MP for Aberdeen South, Ross Thomson, reflects on that significant step on the road to Brexit and, in particular, the way in which the Scottish National Party are opposing the legislation in an effort to thwart Brexit. Ross variously accuses the SNP of hypocrisy, scaremongering and attempting to undermine the UK from within and you can read his piece here (and here’s wishing Ross a Happy Birthday today as well!)
Tony Blair is determined to stop Brexit. We knew this months ago when we decided to set-up our ‘Stop Blair‘ campaign. After reading the Daily Mail this morning, I decided to write to you because our former Prime Minister is at it again.
Speaking at the Concordia Annual Summit in New York, he described Brexit as “a self-harming act”. When asked directly if he thinks it is possible to undo Brexit, he said he didn’t know, but suggested that the vote could be reversed. And we know he has been doing his best to reverse it.
The independent Labour Peer, Lord Stoddart of Swindon has welcomed Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson’s controversial intervention in the ongoing debate about the Brexit negotiations. Lord Stoddart said: “I congratulate the Foreign Secretary for having the courage to write about a positive vision of the future of our great country, in the face of so much pessimism from gutless politicians who seem to have no faith in our country or its prospects.
In the early hours of Tuesday morning this week the EU (Withdrawal) Bill passed its Second Reading in the House of Commons. It was voted in favour of by 326 votes to 290. A solid majority for the Government, despite much effort from Remoaners and Soft-Brexiteers arguing it was a monstrous power grab. The passing of the Bill, although it is expected to have amendments made to it during the committee stages, is another step towards Brexit. It will ensure there isn’t legal chaos the day after Brexit and will make sure Parliament’s schedule is not impossibly clogged up with debates about trivial changes to EU-related legislation.

When the UK leaves the European Union in March 2019, we will embark upon a new era in the history of this great nation. We want to ensure the UK maximises the opportunities and minimises the disruption caused by Brexit.
