How Very Dare You ?!

I have just watched the Parliamentary Scrutiny Committee grilling Millipede, and it was fairly temple throbbing stuff.Some magnificent work was done by James Clappison ( Con )pinning the fluttering mothy DM on some misrepresentation of the solidity of red lines soi disant .
We are potentially liable to fines and forfeit the entire measure ,unless we opt in to an amendment, and this is clearly a ratchet from which we cannot escape.It will Europeanise our Criminal Justice System. The gay icon was lying through his bleached white teeth but he saw a way out !
Just at this tricky point of stammering mendacity Milliband chose to take a ironic reference to “ Peace in our time “ somewhat literally . The conversation went something like this

“Foreign Secretary you are being evasive and trying to hide cracks in this proposed Treaty… you wave it with a glib ‘Peace in our time’ ….”

“ Hang on are you suggesting that I am like Neville Chamberlain…….
“ I think you are being overly imaginative …”
“ No I am not , I take great office , you are in principle comparing the EU with Nazi Germany of the 30s…”
“ Eeer ..I think you are being a little overly sensitive …”
“ Well perhaps I am , perhaps with my family ( jewish) I do take this very seriously.For you to suggest that it is 30 September, 1938 and I am Neville Chamberlain giving a speech concerning the Munich Agreement , and that it will be remembered for its ironic value, is an outrage.."
"Oh come on can we get back to..."

" No it is a sesitivity I feel acutely. The Munich Agreement, you say this treaty is like , gave the Sudetenland of Czechoslovakia to Hitler .Are claiming that next year Germany will invade Poland and Europe will be plunged into World War II. This was what you with bare faced effrontery .... insensitivity to my Semitic lineage …. etc.”

I may not understand every last Paragraph but I know one thing . Milliband is lying and we are heading further into the super state . Bill Cash said as much

Or on another level, as suggested elsewhere, if this was the man who negotiated on our behalf we can assume that we got a very bad deal.

"I'll just bring in the lawyers here... I'm not a lawyer"

"No, you are the Foreign Secretary"

RIP independence.

Yes, well done Clappison and the scrutiny committee for standing up for truth and democracy - and well done newmania for 'How very dare you?'

How very dare they indeed, when the overwhelming majority of the people of these islands want - demand - a Referendum on this crooked and nefarious Treaty.

HARLOW'S REFERNDUM UPDATE

Our most hard working volunteer on the People's Referendum here in Harlow, good old Bobby, says that 90% of those he approaches want to vote for a Referendum.Bobby doesn't explain the issues,just asks someone else if those approached don't wish to vote.

As Bobby largely does his Referenduming on the streets where many of those approached are hurrying off somewhere,I'm amazed that he doesn't get a higher rate of refusal.

When I'm Referenduming, I tend to briefly explain the issues to those who say they aren't interested in the Treaty and find this produces a lower refusal rate - of c 3%.

Overall, the experience of all the volunteers working on Harlow's People's Referendum is that:

THE OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF PEOPLE OF HARLOW BELIE THE NULAB VIEW, WE ARE NOT TOO STUPID TO VOTE, WE ARE AWARE OF THE TREATY AND THE ISSUES IT RAISES AND DEMAND A REFERENDUM ON THIS TREATY.
