The Czech President signed the Lisbon Treaty this afternoon. Britain is now governed from Europe and our political representatives are now purely figureheads with the power of parish councillors. (Haven't I heard that said of the Scottish Parliament?)
EU Referendum has also recorded the event. Me? I'm so sad to see the consolidation of a European Superstate when so many generations have fought and died for Britain to make its own laws, have its own powerful governments and care for its people.
There is a solution for the conservatives though. David Cameron, should he become Prime Minister, could immediately grant Scotland a referendum and ensure the tories campaigned in the YES camp. Scotland would gain independence and that would leave England requiring to reapply for membership of the EU and therefore in a position to negotiate terms.
Perhaps Scotland would do the same. Just a thought - I can but dream.
