Loss of Sovereignty

I often write a post which is based upon some idea from some other blog. That disturbs me a little since I feel that I am not being fair in that I am’pinching’ some else’s ideas. I generally H/T, but sometimes I can’t remember where I got the idea from, and it can be very difficult and time-consuming to find it again.

I think that we defenders of freedom should have a code, which is: “Use any material you see on my blog as you will. There is no need for attribution, although, in some circumstances, such a H/T would be nice. But it doesn’t matter at all. “We are all in this together”, as I have seen quoted here and there from someone or other.


Quietly, while the blather about the Scottish Independence vote has been going on, time has been passing. Unobserved, the latest obscenity from the EUSSR has been moving closer and closer. Cameron, Clegg and Miliband have said not a word about it.


On the 1st November 2014, the UK will lose its sovereignty over the following areas because they will be become subject to majority voting in the EU – H/T (among others):

So, while the agro about Scottish Independence has been going on, the time has been fast approaching when it would not matter anyway.

So where are the massive discussions in the MSM and on TV about this massive transfer of ‘dictats’ to the EU? Anyone who thinks that there will be anything ‘democratic’ about the idea of ‘qualified majority voting’ would be mad, mad, mad. It is a recipe for the most corrupt ‘smoky-room’ engineering that has ever been attempted in the history of mankind.

But, while the imposition of this diminution of the UK’s sovereign rights has been moving closer and closer, we have been thrutching about over the Scottish People’s right to govern themselves as a separate entity from the UK as a whole.

But what would there be left for them to govern?


Only a few conclusions can be drawn. I need not go into all the possible convoluted ‘conspiracy theories’. Most of them are self-evident. What is most visible to me is that Cameron/Clegg/Miliband are either stupid or complicit. I do not care which. They either know that Ukraine, under the Qualified Majority Voting system, could decide the EU’s, and thus the UK’s, Foreign Policy, or they do not. (I’m talking about one vote, cast ‘Yes’ or ‘No’, whatever the matter being voted upon, can be crucial)

Further, it is as clear as daylight that the Commissariat can easily engineer a conflict between one group and another. That is called ‘polarisation’. The Tobacco Control Industry has been using that ploy for decades. That is the reason for all the silly surveys about smoking – split people into pro-smoking and anti-smoking groups. The reality is much more subtle, but the ‘polarisation’ is to the advantage of the Zealots and Charlatans.

Why have Cameron, Clegg and Miliband fallen for it? What is wrong with them? How can they even think of transferring ‘foreign policy’ to an organisation which does not recognise the word ‘Foreign’?

Meanwhile, despite the debunking of global warming, tobaccos SHS danger, etc, the bandwagon rolls on.

Oh, wait a minute, an opportunity to blow people and property in Iraq to smithereens has arisen. Easy-peasy decision. GO FOR IT! Bomb the bastards, whoever they are. But don’t worry about the extremists at home. They are entitled to housing benefits and subsidies and loads-a-money.


But I am getting carried away.


It is possible that Cameron/Clegg/Miliband realise or know that a Treaty has no legal affect whatsoever. It is a temporary agreement. The UK cannot be forced to agree to any proposal whatsoever that the EU dictat dictates. It is for the UK to decide whether to or not. That Sovereignty cannot be given away. Thus, if there is agreement among EU States that Scotland should become a separate State, then the UK could and would decline. Thus, the EU is a puff cloud. It is the smoke from a cigarette. It is the taste of an orange.

It is absolutely useless and a pain in the arse, and an expensive one at that. In the USA, it costs $400 to just speak to your doctor. It cost $1000s for common remedies. It isn’t the Big Pharma Industry which is being protected, it is the PROFITS if that industry which are being protected.


The ‘Common Market’ was enough. It might possibly proceed, over time, to become a Federal United States of Europe. But there are people who want it to happen during their own life-times and are therefore impatient and wish to push it. But that desire has always led to disaster.


Perhaps I should end there, but I have one more idea.

The conservative MP and Cabinet Minister, Ian Duncan Smith, had an idea. It was that every individual person has a ‘right’ to be provided for by ‘Society’ with the necessities of life to an extent. Or, to take the necessities of life. That principle includes the theft of rabbits from some aristocrat’s estate. A person has the natural right to do what is necessary to survive.

There is the ‘catch 22’ – the conflict is between the ‘natural right’ to trap rabbits as a way to survive, and State prohibition of that natural right in favour of State provision.
