A History Of The Loss Of National Sovereignty By UK Citizens

UK citizens lost their sovereignty on three occassions:

1) UK citizens lost their national sovereignty when the Maastricht Treaty entered into force,  on November 1, 1993; it was at this time they became residents of a region of global governance.

A … Nick Clegg writes in The Independent on December 4, 2003 relating The Myth Of A European Demos As presently constituted, the European Parliament is operating on the basis of fictional belief that there exists something called a Pan-European demos: that the European Parliament can somehow directly represent the collectivity of the European peoples in a way that differs from the more partisan, national interests represented in the Council of Ministers.

Yet at present there is clearly no such pan-European democratic culture which brings all European voters together. In Thessalonica, in Dublin, in Lisbon, voters go to the polls for domestic, even local reasons, often as a reaction to national political circumstances.

Many hope that a wider demos will emerge as European integration continues. Over time, they argue, people will understand that these pan-European issues require pan-European responses. Maybe they are right. My concern is that the evidence suggests that, far from converging, the European electorates are in many respects diverging from each other.

B … Ralf Grahn writes on June 24, 2008 in article European Demos:  For the anti-EU crowd it is standard fare to deny the existence of a European demos or people, and even the prospect of one. Some even deny the existence of EU citizenship. Hasn’t the allegation that the Constitutional Treaty and the Lisbon Treaty would ‘enforce’ an EU citizenship been one of the popular myths surrounding treaty reform? Since the Maastricht Treaty entered into force, 1 November 1993, every citizen of an EU member state is a citizen of the European Union.

C … Nick Clegg says in March 24, 2008 Iain Martin Telegraph article Nick Clegg Keeps On Digging On Lisbon:  “I believe strongly that Britain should be a full, active member of the EU” …  “Dear Conservative MP, Tomorrow Parliament will vote on whether there should be a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty. But this question is a smokescreen to avoid answering the real questions facing the Conservative Party on Europe. It was, after all, the Conservative Party in government that ratified without referenda the Single European Act of 1986 and the Maastricht Treaty of 1992 that put together the structure of the European Union as we know it today. Maastricht was the critical treaty in constitutional terms – every treaty since has been in effect a minor reform of this Maastricht base. Will you seek to renegotiate the Lisbon Treaty? If so, how far back do you wish to go? Is it simply the specific changes proposed in the Lisbon Treaty that you object to, or would you demand a much wider renegotiation? Who are your allies in Europe in seeking this objective?”

2) The UK leaders by submitting to the announcement and participation in the European Stabilization Mechanism of May 2010, made the UK citizens became liable for the debts of Greece, and thus had their sovereignty waived by UK leaders.

Bruno Waterfield and Melissa Kite in The Telegraph May 8, 2010 article British Taxpayers Ordered To Bail Out Euro,: All 27 EU finance ministers have been summoned to Brussels on Sunday to sign up to a European stabilisation mechanism. Britain will be unable to veto this as it will be put through under the “qualified majority voting” system.

The deal, effectively to shore up the euro, was denounced as a “stitch-up” last night after it emerged Nicolas Sarkozy, the French President and Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, had devised it behind closed doors and were attempting to push it through at a time when there is no clear government in Britain. It was declared a “done deal” by the 16 euro zone leaders who met in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Alistair Darling, the Chancellor, will fly to Brussels for the meeting after promising to keep George Osborne and Vince Cable, his Tory and Lib Dem counterparts, informed. EU finance ministers have been given the deadline of midnight tonight to agree the highly sensitive but rushed proposals to protect the single currency from financial turbulence from the Greek debt crisis. “When the markets reopen Monday we will have in place a mechanism to defend the euro,” said President Sarkozy yesterday. “This is a full-scale mobilisation.”

Officials and diplomats have confirmed that Gordon Brown, the Prime Minister, was the last non-eurozone leader to be telephoned on Friday night by José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, his Spanish oppositer number, to be warned about the EU plan.

Europe’s failure to contain Greece’s fiscal crisis last week triggered a 4.3 per cent drop in the euro and threatened to spark a global debt crisis. Mats Persson, the director of Open Europe, said that while euro zone stability was in Britain’s interests, the bailout deal was not. ”This latest move could make British taxpayers liable for the debts of governments over which they have no democratic control – to the tune of billions of pounds,” he said.

”A British government, of whatever persuasion, must really consider whether it should take part in centralised EU borrowing on this scale, not least since such facilities were always considered illegal under the EU treaties and wholly undemocratic.”

3) By participating with in the November 2010, International Monetary Fund and Europe seigniorage aid program for Ireland, to prevent a European and world-wide financial meltdown, the United Kingdom is now fully integrated into a region of global governance with the European Union. The UK Leaders have waived national citizenship, and those living in the UK are residents of a region European Economic governance.

The creators of the euro knew that perfectly well what they were doing.

They will fulfilling the 1974 call of the Club of Rome to establish one of ten regions of Global Governance. In article Ten Regions Of Global Governance Are Emerging, I relate that three regions have already formed: the European Zone, the North American Continent and the ASEAN Trading Group.
