On the Wing

Flying in the face of widespread left wing extremism!

I find it strange that the EU parliament has often been critical of Robert Mugabe and his dictatorship in Zimbabwe and then follow his example to the letter. The fact that Mugabe is in denial over the results of an election that clearly dismissed him was equally clearly condemned by the EU who insisted that the results of that election be announced and adhered to. How so with the results of a referendum that clearly dismisses the intentions of the EU? It would appear the EU is as much in denial as is Mugabe.

The Irish did not vote NO to the Lisbon Treaty. They voted yes to a new referendum next year. They voted yes to all the other member states going ahead with the ratification of that infamous piece of illegal deception. They clearly voted for the rest of Europe to “move forward” without them until they can be coerced into submitting to the greater will of the EU. At least, according to all the statements that I have read from the leading lights in Brussels.

David Miliband confirmed that Britain would press ahead with its treaty ratification on Wednesday, when it is due to complete its passage through the House of Lords.
Nicolas Sarkozy is in the Czech Republic pressuring them to sign up.
Angela Merkel is in Poland doing the same job.
Ursula Plassnik, the Austrian Foreign Minister, said: “We have to pursue our goal to make the European Union more efficient and more relevant to the citizen. That is why this process will not be stopped.”

How much more undemocratic can this get? The French and Dutch said no two years ago. The Irish said no last week. How many times must it be said? What part of “NO” can the EU thickheads not understand?

According to article 6 of their own legislation concerning ratification of the Lisbon Treaty:

Article 6 Treaty of Lisbon
1. This Treaty shall be ratified by the High Contracting Parties in accordance with their respective constitutional requirements. The instruments of ratification shall be deposited with the Government of the Italian Republic.
2. This Treaty shall enter into force on 1 January 2009, provided that all the instruments of ratification have been deposited, or, failing that, on the first day of the month following the deposit of the instrument of ratification by the last signatory State to take this step.

Please note: paragraph 2 states that it is necessary for “all the instruments of ratification” have to be deposited. That cannot now happen. Or, later in the same paragraph, that they would have to wait for “the last” signatory state.

I wonder how long they will have to wait for Ireland?

Perhaps we should have a referendum there every month, until they get it right. I’ll bet some EU whiz-kid is working on it already.

This treaty should be called dead. It is unwanted by the people and some even see it as an act of treason to sign it. We do not need a United States of Europe. We do not want one Greater European State.

Why should that be so hard to understand?
