Vote No To The United States Of Europe
LET nobody now deny that the ambition of the Brussels elite is to create a United States of Europe where most decisions are taken at the centre and member states are regarded as mere regional authorities. Luxembourg-born Viviane Reding, the vice president of the European Commission, has made the frankest admission yet that this is the direction in which the European Union is headed. She wishes the European Commission to be supreme over national governments and the European Parliament to have seniority over national parliaments. "We need to build a United States of Europe with the commission as government and two chambers - the European Parliament and a 'Senate' of Member States," she declared. No, Mrs Reding, we do not need to do anything of the sort. What we need to do in Britain is hold a referendum on EU membership so people can vote to restore self-government. And before that happens we need our politicians to decide which side they are on and stop pretending that the creepy and anti-democratic notion of "ever-closer union" is off the agenda.
