WE the people of Great Britain was promised by our government that we'd have a vote on the EU constitution, it was even included in Labours manifesto at the last general election, but because the government knew it could NOT get a YES vote from the British people they decided to change the name from the EU constitution to the EU treaty, so then the government didnt have to give us a vote and could plough through the EU constitution without even asking the British people thoughts,
it says it all when the president of France said, "Referendums on the new European Union Treaty were "dangerous" and would be lost in France, Britain and other countries"
"The French president's confession that governments could not win popular votes on a "simplified treaty" - drawn up to replace the EU constitution"
and admitted "The real reason why Britain, and all other EU countries, apart from Ireland, were refusing to hold popular votes was because governments were afraid they would lose them"
I just cant understand why people would want any part of this EU ****e. just look at the way they're treating us with utter contempt, if the EU cant get the vote they want they simply dont ask us, and do what ever they ****ing like, they are riding roughshod, this isnt ****ing democracy its a ****ing right ding dong,
if the EU tactics was used else where in the world, in China or Putins Russia, tor even by Mugabe in Zimbabwe the ****ing EU countries would be up in arms, complaining about democracy and what not,
