We Dwell Among Our Own


Again and again I hear the bawling yahoos of the semi educated left saying .. “Churchill was keen on the EU he loved it .. This is a short post but I just want that canard nailed good and sodding proper . This is what our greatest man had to say
"We are with Europe, but not of it. We are linked but not comprised. We are associated but not absorbed. And should European statesmen address us and say, 'Shall we speak for thee?', we should reply, 'Nay Sir, for we dwell among our own people'."

Today the now ratified Constitution slunk an inch further into being and we will soon lose yet more of the independence that others fought for Mr . Hague put it well saying ..” the prime minister had "no democratic or moral authority to sign Britain up to the renamed EU constitution". It was "a total breach of trust with the British people and a flagrant breach of his solemn election promise to the British people".
So The Blunder Brown`s version of Churchill’s slightly Dumbledorish summary would be… “should European statesmen address us and say, 'Shall we speak for thee?', we should reply, 'Nay Sir, not until I have made false promises in my manifesto and concocted some rubbish about it being not the Constitution …then you go right ahead..”


The British people betrayed today are not just those still with us .

What's Cameron's position on the EU, then? What does he think about it and how is he pracically going to enact policy?

What's Cameron's position on the EU,
If the Constitution is still unratified we will get a referendum and if it is ratified then he will set out his approach to taking back power prior to the election.

Surely the Irish "no" buys us nearly enough time to get Brown out and have a referendum?

If the treaty has to be changed to persuade Ireland to vote "yes" the second time around, surely a new ratification procedure will be needed in the UK too?

Churchill was right. England is not a continental country. We do things differently. To try and turn our ancient system into a continental one is pointless and wrong. We should be be allied with but not subsumed within our neighbouring continent.

Do what YOU can. Vote YES to Free Europe Constitution at www.FreeEurope.info. Vaclav Klaus supports it.

BR-I`m not sure but it has occurred to me that cameron has sent a covert message to the powers that be that if they do not sort out Ireland in time then they are stuffed . That might concerntrate minds
