Stockholm programme creates EU State mechanisms

On Tuesday, the European Parliament will be voting on the Stockholm Programme.

You can see it here in the EP Agenda for next week, 22-25th November in Strasbourg.

Listed as: Civil, commercial, family and private international law aspects of the action plan implementing the Stockholm Programme – Report: Luigi Berlinguer (A7-0252/2010), the European Parliament is being asked to vote to adopt its implementation.

So what exactly does its implementation mean. When in December 2009 the Lisbon Treaty came into force, it created a new set of legal definitions called the TFEU (the Functioning of the European Union).

The Stockholm Programme turns that TFEU into something new, not just the functioning of 27 member states as part of a Union, but the rules for a single state called the EU.

The UK will have lost its most important of indicators of sovereignty, its own control over its own law. It is to all intents and purposes the background to a single EU state constitution, which by the end of the programme in 2013, will be the only law in town.

It is now up to the Commission to implement this, along with the Committee of the Regions and (for what they are now worth) National Parliaments.

Here is the European Commission Implementation plan on the Stockholm Programme. Wonder if we will ever see such a plan from Cameron for his implementation of this programme, no thought not, there is a syndrome of the same name so it will be muddled and fudged and mixed with all the other inane garbage coming out of parliament, for the elephant must never be mentioned.

The EUSSR is about to become the reality.
