Not only that, but tptb have come up with a great wheeze to make it more difficult to vote down any proposal; there now has to be a “blocking minority” which represents “at least three quarters of EU citizens” or “at least three quarters of member states”. Even then, the Council undertakes only to “discuss the issue”.

Let Cameron tell us again how we are “in Europe but not ruled by Europe”. He’s a lying weasel – and he knows it.

We’re an island race and with physical separation naturally comes a mental separation. Churchill summed it up in 1930: “We see nothing but good and hope in a richer, freer, more contented European commonality. But we have our own dream and our own task. We are with Europe, but not of it. We are linked but not compromised. We are interested and associated but not absorbed.” He later reiterated this in 1948 when he said: “We are with you, but not of you.” How unlike today’s traitorous milksops who are too frightened to tell people the truth of what they’ve done and conspire with the media to delude us.

Churchill spoke in a time before mass immigration had overtaken the country as part of the plan to subvert any lingering nationalist or patriotic feelings.  He also asked: “Is it the only lesson of history that mankind is unteachable?” Certainly it seems that our current crop of political leaders with their PPEs learn nothing and know nothing; the people seem to know more of our history than they do.  There’s a long line of tradition and bonding going back thousands of years that runs through the blood of a Briton; it’s a feeling and a sense of place as much as a dry timeline.  If there ever came a time when one Briton remained alone, that man would know he was a Briton with a rich, historical past.  They can re-write books and censor our speech but they can’t re-wire our collective national conscience. That’s why it will be tears before bed-time for our politicians and the hideous, over-bearing, anti-democratic concept that is the EU.

Never you tell ’em a lie!
“We British have our own Commonwealth of Nations.”  Churchill’s Zurich speech in 1946, misappropriated by the EU.
