The Hemicycle, European Parliament,
Strasbourg - 12.12.2007:
The President of the European Commission, the President of the European Council and the President of the European Parliament gather to sign the Charter of Fundamental Rights, which will replace the European Convention on Human Rights. The Charter forms part of the "Lisbon Treaty", recently known as the "reform treaty", or the redesigned Constitutional Treaty.
A number of Members of the European Parliament (MEP) rose in protest against the "Lisbon Treaty" (signed by the 27 Heads of State and Government on 13.12.2007).
The "Lisbon Treaty" establishes the same EU Constitution that was rejected by the French and Dutch referendums in 2005.
This violates the principle of unanimity, where all Member States must consent to each treaty.
As Italian interior minister, Giuliano Amato said at the London School of Economics last February, "The good thing about not calling it a constitution is that no one can ask for a referendum."
As a result, the French and Dutch votes were ignored, and five governments have cancelled a promised referendum (Czech Rep., Denmark, Poland, Portugal, UK).
Only Ireland will have a referendum. The other 26 Member States will ratify the treaty in parliament without asking the people.
The Future of Europe can be different than the centralised monolith which the EU Constitution creates. The 'single market' (the 'four freedoms of movement') does not need to be governed by an EU bureaucracy which plans the economy and regulates our lives.
EU romanticism must stop. The EU is not what it seems to be.
Have your say on the Future of Europe.

These guys never stop. I respect that about JP (in the way that I respect the Empire in Star Wars) and there is something to be said for an idea so disruptive that it attracts the sharks at JP.
