I looked it up....................but I don't think my brain is clever enough to decipher it.

I do know that we were promised a referendum after hearing both for and against arguments...............that hasn't happened and I don't appreciate being lied to by people who are supposed to be working in our best interests.

As far as I am concerned, the biggest problem with this is that we , the general public, haven't got a clue what Heathcliff Brown has signed up to.

Can someone somewhere tell us in simple terms what it all means?

Then, perhaps, we can all form a considered view.

And why does the board fill up with bloomin' game threads every time a slightly serious thread appears?

Have we got parliament anymore?

Does anyone else apart from the Prime Minister and a few Government Ministers have any say in our democracy?

Kitty, it was one of those items buried in small print amidst far more interesting stuff like Brangelina, and Madge wanting Justin and Britney to go on tour with her.

And of course, the extra payments for injured servicefolk.........that was in yesterdays news.

Yes... the B£$%&^%

I am really really raging!!

Sneaky cretin ... will we be left with anything by Christmas ...ooooppppsss sorry I mean by the near end of year festivities some people like to join in on.

lol Ann... knew what you meant..

I am now praying that Ireland stick to their guns and say no again......

Plus... I do so hope that some legal boffin will challenge Mr Brown's right to sign us away without putting it to referendum, as was promised in the manifesto (I think!!)

But if this goes through, we can virtually kiss goodbye many of the things which are uniquely British...... quirky laws and stuff like that.

And of course, the Human Rights Act in all it's entirety and it's emphasis on protecting the rights of the thug over the rights of the victim...

How the heck did he get away with that???

$&^*(££$%^& man!!

So much for their promise of a referendum during the election campaign.

The sad thing is that even if we HAD got the vote we'd be made to vote again if they didn't get the result THEY wanted.

Some democracy this is !!!

I'm furious with you Daff!!! The quicker Gordon Brown disappears the better!!

Just re read that and it doesn't sound like what I meant to say - I am furious alongside you!!!


MrDaff Report 18 Jul 2008 18:34

Or at least, the Lisbon agreement was ratified, as I mentioned on a thread yesterday, effectively giving away Britain's sovereignty.

And there has been NO referendum.

Or did I blink and miss it?
