We act outside The Law, and we dont care – official Labour policy

In a letter that I can only say beggars
belief, Geoff Hoon, the Europe Minister openly admitted that Labour policy was
to ignore the legal basis when voting for European legislation. 

In a letter
sent on Nov 9 to a Commons watchdog on EU legislation, the cross-party European
Scrutiny Committee He said “the Government will support measures even
where it had doubts about the legal base”.    


This is the mark and legacy of our
Government – don’t care whether what they do is within the law or not, and they
do it in your name. 

I have to agree with Graham Brady,
Conservative spokesman on
Europe, said it showed an “arrogant disregard for democracy and the
rule of law”.

How dare this government admit that it
doesn’t give a damn about the law, and then criminalise everything we do.  

Well I am sorry, but to me, and probably
most of the citizens of this country, IT DOES MATTER.

This revelation will open the floodgates
and probably means that Britons can now challenge every single European law
imposed on us, through the courts, and test its legal basis. 

This issue needs to be investigated by the
police, and charges brought against Geoff Hoon, who has admitted in writing
that he acts illegally, and any other minister who does likewise.

This government truly believes that it is
above the law, as expressed by Lord Goldsmith when giving a lecture to lawyers
in the
US last September,
when he stated, “the
UK government doesn't have to obey unsympathetic court rulings”.


have warned many times in this blog, Old Soviet style politics – At every
level, in every way, Do as I say, not as I do.
