Blair/Brown Red lines WORTHLESS – EU

Senior European Union officials confirmed yesterday that Britain's “red line” opt-out from the European Charter of Fundamental Rights is not worth the paper it is written on.

Wallström, the European Commission Vice-President, insisted that the
charter will apply to huge swathes of British law, the 75 per cent or
more that is derived from EU legislation.

“There is 30 years of EU jurisprudence to say there can be no two-tier system of European rights.”

Research by the think-tank Open Europe suggests that EU judges will not be backward in coming forward to apply the charter.

Court of Justice will decide for itself whether member states are
implementing European law and interpret their national laws for them,”
said Neil O'Brien, Open Europe's director.

“Trying to stop the charter changing our laws will be like trying to carry water in a sieve.”


So the Opt-Out on the Charter of Fundamental Rights has already been ruled out. That's one of Brown's red lines crossed.

We demand honesty from now on, we demand a referendum
on the European Constitution Treaty.

Sign the No.10 Petition
for a referendum now.
