Long hand or attachment' plus my letter in the Express today, Anne

The proposed REFERENDUM on the EU. What it is really about.   6.2.2013.

 We here in the UK have been promised a referendum after and IF the Conservatives get into Government through the next General Election in 2015.  The people realise now, more than ever before, that ALL THREE MAJOR POLITICAL PARTIES WANT TO REMAIN IN THE EUROPEAN UNION -FOREVER.  So why would those that want out of the EU vote for any one of them?  It is time to put OUR COUNTRY BEFORE ANY POLITICAL PARTY YOU MIGHT BE IN.  And this may well be the last chance you will have to save our Country from permanent foreign rule.
The ?promised? referendum is allegedly to take place if the Conservatives win the next General Election, and although I doubt very much that is going to happen, I will place here the reason for my concern re an "IN" or "OUT" Referendum of the present European Union. They may indeed be the same concerns that you have too, I don't know. This especially having recognised at the time of writing, that Mr Cameron is continuing to implement the EU's HS2 project, part of the EU's Trans- European Transport Network (TEN-T) Policy which HS2 is part of.  Even though we allegedly do not have this kind of money to spend on this EU Project, it has to go ahead-the EU decides what we must do-our Government must obey-no matter which Political Party is in Government. The great tragedy is allowing foreigners to dictate-have the authority (sovereignty) what a British Government has to have on our own Country/land (or is it now the EU's sovereign land?).  I am aware of the other contents of the EU's Trans European Transport Network (TEN-T) Policy which would/will bring about the loss of UK Sovereignty over our SKY, and a plus for an EU?s ?Single European Sky? and as an Island Nation-a sea faring Nation there comes the loss of Sovereignty over our PORTS and SEAS for the EU?s ?Motorway in the Sea. This so EU ships can come and go without asking for permission.  Will our ships become EU ships too?   This EU Motorway in the Sea might reach all the way down to the Falkland Islands? (Recorded in Hansard) So even NOW British Governments continues to give the sovereignty of our Country away to Brussels.
 I believe, that should the people vote "YES" to remain in the EU, not only would this Country have to remain in the EU FOREVER-for I cannot see another REFERENDUM on this Subject being allowed, AND a "YES" in the promised REFERENDUM would, I suggest, be seen to destroy and over-ride our very own Common Law Constitution-ALL OF IT-all down to the people?s vote. A referendum suggests that our Constitution is negotiable.  It is NOT negotiable, never has been and never will be.  However, always be aware that there are those that are trying very hard to destroy it.  Overthrowing our Constitution is treason: conspiring to overthrow our Constitution is treason: contemplating overthrowing our Constitution is treason and inciting other people to overthrow our Constitution, as in calling for a referendum, on an "IN" or "OUT" of the European Union is also treason.  This is the reason why our Constitution has remained 'safe' for hundreds of years and the very reason we fought in two World Wars. 

Remember that others on the Continent have new WRITTEN Constitutions that written after the last war.  Should anyone vote for a new Constitution here, it would indeed over-ride our ?old? Constitution.  In the destroying of our Constitution, the EU Treaties would automatically override and destroy the new.

The people would have chosen to remain in a European Union in which according to the EU?s Legal Service in a letter dated Brussels 10th December 2010, sj.f (2010 879182) ?It must be recalled that Union law prevails over national law, including national constitutional law.  Therefore the concerns expressed by the German Constitutional Court on the basis of German constitutional law cannot be a reason for an opt-out from an EU measure?.  This has never been explained to the people of this Country, for we are still electing and paying our own Members of Parliament and Government to govern this country according to its long standing Common Law Constitution.
I am aware that for any Government to say an absolute "YES" to remaining in the EU would not be in keeping with their Oaths of Allegiance to the British Crown they make before they may take up their seats even though WE might have voted for them,  for, according to R v Thistlewood 1820, "To destroy the Constitution is treason? That Article re Treason cannot be repealed because its purpose is there purely to protect our Constitution for all time. Anyone born here in the UK, it is as if they had made their Oath of Allegiance to the British Crown from that moment, and they also have the protection of the Crown from that moment too. However, if the people voted ?YES? (and perhaps one way or another, the answer would be a ?YES? indeed) to remain in the EU, what better way of remaining in the European Union forever, and for it to become one great STATE finally? The people have never been allowed Referendum since 1973 so when would they be allowed another? What would we have left of the Governance of our Country if we do not set ourselves free from foreign rule (very) soon?  Most of what this Coalition Government has put through since it came into Office, has been EU Legislation-the EU?s Localism Act, with elected Mayors and Elected Police Commissioners. The Data Retention Bill still going through I think, and now the next part of TEN-T, which includes giving sovereignty over our seas and skies as well as our roads and rail-what is left eh? This is exactly why I have suggested that we use the coming GENERAL ELECTION as the REFERENDUM and only vote for those Political Parties or Organisation that want OUT of the EU. To put your Country before your Political Party.  I doubt you will ever get another opportunity to be free from EU Rule.

What indeed if the proposed referendum AFTER the general election was not a true and fair referendum either? I would never have questioned that at one time, but now? However, more people are aware that we have THREE MAJOR POLITICAL PARTIES that want to remain in the EU.  That is not what the vast majority of people want at all, for they still contribute to their pay and expenses to govern this Country according to its Long Standing Common Law Constitution-this they can surely no longer do. There are allegedly another 50 Lords/Ladies to be admitted to the House of Lords soon, and once again for the people to contribute to-how long will the people continue to do THAT I wonder? Our Constitution forbids us to encourage foreigners in any way-yes, even financially- in the Governing of this, our Country in any way at all.    "?all usurped and foreign power and authority?may forever be clearly extinguished, and never used or obeyed in this realm. ?no foreign prince, person, prelate, state, or potentate?shall at any time after the last day of this session of Parliament, use, enjoy or exercise any manner of power, jurisdiction, superiority, authority, preeminence or privilege?within this realm, but that henceforth the same shall be clearly abolished out of this realm, for ever."    END.  Anne Palmer

Hostility to the EU is growing

The Daily Telegraph has seen confidential spending proposals and internal documents planning an unprecedented propaganda blitz ahead of and during European elections in June 2014.
Key to a new strategy will be "public opinion monitoring tools" to "identify at an early stage whether debates of political nature among followers in social media and blogs have the potential to attract media and citizens' interest".
Spending on "qualitative media analysis" is to be increased by ?1.7 million and while most of the money is to be found in existing budgets an additional ?787,000 will be need to be raised next year despite calls for EU spending to reflect national austerity.
"Particular attention needs to be paid to the countries that have experienced a surge in Euroscepticism," said a confidential document agreed last year.
"Parliament's institutional communicators must have the ability to monitor public conversation and sentiment on the ground and in real time, to understand 'trending topics' and have the capacity to react quickly, in a targeted and relevant manner, to join in and influence the conversation, for example, by providing facts and figures to deconstructing myths."

Training for parliament officials begins later this month.
Paul Nuttall, UKIP's deputy leader, has attacked the proposals, which he said, violate the neutrality of the EU civil service by turning officials into a "troll patrol", stalking the internet to make unwanted and provocative political contributions in social media debates.
"Spending over a million pounds for EU public servants to become Twitter trolls in office hours is wasteful and truly ridiculous," he said.
"It strikes me as bizarre that the EU administration is playing such an explicitly political role with a brief to target Eurosceptics - that's code for parties like Ukip, and this is hardly neutral."
A confidential document discussed by officials last week appears to acknowledge problems by admitting that "there are fine lines separating institutional and political communication".
Parliament officials declined to comment on the confidential documents and ongoing private discussions within the EU assmbly's administration.
A confidential document entitled "political guidelines for the institutional information and communication campaign" was agreed by the parliament's administrative "bureau" last July.
The text highlights a "sharp contrast" between "growing perception of endangered welfare, rising insecurity and financial instability" and EU promises to guarantee "freedom, security and social justice with a prosperous internal market".
"The current economic and financial crisis together with high rates of unemployment, particularly among young people, is resulting in diminished trust in European institutions by citizens... it is evident that the EU's image is suffering," the document said.
"In order to reverse the perception that 'Europe is the problem', we need to communicate that the answer to existing challenges... is 'more Europe' not 'less Europe'."
Parliament officials are especially worried that new powers for MEPs under the Lisbon Treaty have not been reflected in growing popularity, as voting turnout for the parliament has declined successively since the first direct elections 34 years ago.
"The increase in power has met with increased influence, responsibility and transparency which should be reflected by enhanced visibility, credibility and a better reputation," said the document.
"Beyond the indisputable success story of European integration, the public's image of the EU and that of the parliament is rather lacking, as represented by the steadily declining election polling figures since 1979."
This year MEPs are to increase spending on promoting themselves ahead of European elections next year even as EU countries face an unprecedented period of fiscal austerity.
Spending includes a ?9.4 million instalment for a controversial new museum of Europe, an ?82 million "House of European History" opening in 2015 to celebrate the EU's "historical memory" and to "promote awareness of European identity".
Under the spending plans, cash for "seminars, symposia and cultural activities" will swell by 85 per cent, ?2.5 million. Expenditure on "audio-visual information" will rise by 36 per cent, or ?4.3 million.
There will be 15 per cent increase in funding for the EU's political parties, such as the European People's Party (EPP), and spending on the parliament's hi-tech visitor, centre the "parlamentarium", will increase by nine per cent.
