EU Christopher Graffius

Dear Sir,

In the matter of the EU Christopher Graffius clearly misunderstands the meaning of ever closer union but he should have deduced from the way the European project has developed that his belief it is nothing more than a benevolent desire for friendship is totally naive. From the very first moment the architects of this organisation intended that it should culminate in a United States of Europe and every treaty has moved on towards that goal.

All those involved in the creation of this single European state have made clear their commitment to the submerging of the nations involved into one and while the EU now has its own flag, anthem and parliament it is certain that there are many more stages of so called harmonisation to come. Romano Prodi declared his support for single European armed forces, we have seen how our fishing grounds have become a ‘common resource’ and the Common Agricultural Policy has passed farming into the grip of Brussels.  Next in line is the European Commission’s intention of creating a ‘European energy union’, placing our vital energy resources under the direction of the Eurocrats.

The overarching means by which the drive to full integration is being pursued is of course the ‘acquis communautaire’ by which the transfer of every power from nation states to the EU will be regarded as permanent and irreversible. The truth is that ever closer union means, as Hugh Gaitskill warned a generation ago, the end of a thousand years of British history and a future as nothing more than a province of a political entity run by an unelected elite.

It is clear that those who wish to remain in the EU are beginning to realise that they are heading for defeat as they have decided to create more and more fanciful scare stories to bolster their case. The idea that it would take ten years to extricate ourselves is total nonsense. It would be the work of a few days to repeal the European Communities Act, thus restoring supremacy to Westminster, to reassert our fishing limits, stop money being sent to Brussels and to withdraw the redundant MEPs. Other matters would take longer but nothing like the time claimed by Europhiles.

If self interested bureaucrats and politicians were to drag their feet and sabotage the implementation of the will of the people it would be an absolute betrayal of our democracy.
