UK Parliament comes to an effective end

Posted: June 3, 2014 by tallbloke in solar system dynamics

Take note of why it is Cameron won’t shift from his “by the end of 2017” EU referendum date.

IanPJ on Politics

On the 1st November 2014 the right of Parliament to legislate over us in 43 areas, the important ones, will be removed and be made subject to approval. They call it QMV, Qualified Majority Voting.

Each member State will lose it right of Veto over these areas, so Cameron’s idea of  negotiation to recover any areas goes out the window at the same time.

The following areas of competence will switch from requiring unanimous approval of all member states to qualified majority voting only:

Initiatives of the High Representative for Foreign Affairs – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Administrative co-operation – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Asylum – Nice: QMV; Lisbon: QMV
Border controls – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Citizens’ initiative regulations – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Civil protection – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Committee of the Regions – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Common defence policy – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Crime…

    Now you know why all politicians of the legacy parties have studiously tried not to let this become public knowledge; now you know why the pollsters keep telling us that nobody is really inetrested in the EU: they’ve been keeping us in the dark.
    Now you know why the legacy media have not asked a single question about the EU during the campaign for the EU Parliament elections – and now you know why so many of us keep saying that Cameron’s referendum ‘promise’ is nothing but smoke and mirrors to get him re-elected next year.
    Come 2017, it will be too late, and us saying ‘we told you so’ will be no consolation.
    You know now what you’ve got to do, and why!

    In effect full integration.
    There will be no way out after that.
    I suppose the only consolation the wise will have is “I told you so”.
    Prepare to be asset stripped.
    Of course the other consolation is the Weasels in Parliament will eventually experience the European type of political backlash, not the British type, if you know what I mean.

    Unless England votes to leave the UK 😉

    Lemme see, what happened last time the Irish voted to walk away from the European Lisbon Treaty…

    Oh yes, they were told to vote again until they gave the right answer.

  5. hunter says:

    Wow. Are the people of the UK ready to be subjects of Brussels?

    EU tells UK to sort out its housing and council tax policies:

    ‘Aside from the idea that the UK must build more houses, which the government accepts, the rest of the advice was likely “to end up in the bin” ‘

  7. tallbloke says:

    Build more houses AND sort out the net migration issue.

    Here in Europe we are becoming more and more tyrannical.

    In reply to Hunter, who queried:
    “Wow. Are the people of the UK ready to be subjects of Brussels?”

    Not this one, sunshine.

  11. tallbloke says:

    Good to see some spirited opposition to the proposed removal of the sovereignty of the British people over their own destiny.

  12. hunter says:

    British Citizen,
    Good luck. I think the struggle is just beginning.

    The EU is the blue print for world government. Communism was tried and it failed badly so that ‘Experiment’ was flushed down the tubes. The Elite have now pinned their hopes on the EU ‘experiment’

    Pascal Lamy even told us so. Global Governance: Lessons from Europe: What can the world learn about global governance from the diplomatic model of the European Union?

    the European construction is the most ambitious experiment to date in supranational governance. It is the story of a desired, defined and organized interdependence between its member states.

    What marks the essence of the European governance paradigm is the coming together of a political will, a goal to be attained as well as an institutional set-up. It is the combination of these three elements — and not the specific method of governance used….

    Remember that the EU started as a supposed “trade organization” Lamy was two term World TRADE Organization Director-General. Prior to that he was an EU big-wig.

    Pascal Lamy: Whither Globalization?

    Is the globalized world of the 21st century being managed with a system — and a mindset — designed for a century that has faded away?

    …In the same way, climate change negotiations are not just about the global environment but global economics as well — the way that technology, costs and growth are to be distributed and shared….

    …Can we balance the need for a sustainable planet with the need to provide billions with decent living standards? Can we do that without questioning radically the Western way of life?…

    …This raises a final challenge: How to provide global leadership? Mobilizing collective purpose is more difficult when we no longer face one common enemy, but thousands of complex problems. The Cold War was about the clash, not just of geopolitical interests, but of big ideas — democracy against totalitarianism, freedom against state control. But the Cold War “glue” has disappeared….

    The reality is that, so far, we have largely failed to articulate a clear and compelling vision of why a new global order matters — and where the world should be headed. Half a century ago, those who designed the post-war system — the United Nations, the Bretton Woods system, the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) — were deeply influenced by the shared lessons of history.

    All had lived through the chaos of the 1930s — when turning inwards led to economic depression, nationalism and war. All, including the defeated powers, agreed that the road to peace lay with building a new international order — and an approach to international relations that questioned the Westphalian, sacrosanct principle of sovereignty — rooted in freedom, openness, prosperity and interdependence….

    RIGHT!

    Out of one side of his mouth he talks of “democracy against totalitarianism, freedom against state control. and out of the other side he talks of world leaders making the decision as far back as the 1930s no less, to dump national sovereignty on the waste heap without consulting the people in the countries affected. Heck anyone who dared mentioned “A New World Order” was called looney-tunes and still is. Sure sounds like totalitarianism and state control to me if the subject can not even be discussed by the serfs.

    AND he also talks of how the world leaders, who have ALREADY MADE THE DECISION are going to SELL that decision to the serfs. “The reality is that, so far, we have largely failed to articulate a clear and compelling vision of why a new global order matters — and where the world should be headed.

    Lamy must have a different definition of totalitarianism and state control than I do. Serfdom is Serfdom no matter how you try to pretty it up and “sell it”

    The name of the game is convincing the serfs they are “free” and they are “Represented” That is where Maurice Strong’s brain storm of using NGOs was so brilliant. Of course Willi Munsenberg got there ahead of him with his “Innocents’ Clubs”

    NGOs give the illusion that they ‘represent’ a large number of people but they actually represent the wishes of the large money donors. Ordinary members have no say and no vote. We saw that in the case of all the “Scientific Societies” that jumped on the CAGW bandwagon WITHOUT a membership vote.

    So now the individual does not matter only the “Group” and the “Group” does not actually represent the individuals.

    It is a rather neat piece of sleight of hand designed to confuse the useful idiots and keep the serfs from invoking Defenestration or Madame Guillotine.
