Not So Great Britain

EU treaty: the great double deception | July 11, 2007

Many people must have rubbed their eyes in disbelief at Gordon Brown’s statement to MPs last Tuesday when, in announcing his new “constitutional settlement”, he promised to give “more power to Parliament and the British people” on the one hand while, on the other, ruling out a referendum on the new EU treaty – which would take away a lot more power from Parliament and the British people.

The layers of spin and deceit that surround this wretched EU treaty are so convoluted that it takes some working out to disentangle the contradictions, U-turns and straight lies it has come to involve.
