We woke up in a different country today. Alright, it doesn’t look very different. The trees still seem black against the winter sun; the motorways continue to jam inexplicably; commuters carry on avoiding eye contact. But Britain is no longer a sovereign nation. At midnight last night, we ceased to be an independent state, bound by international treaties to other independent states, and became instead a subordinate unit within a European state.

Yes, a European state. Take a quick dekko at the definition set out in Article One of the1933 Montevideo Convention on the Rights and Duties of States: “The state as a person of international law should possess the following qualifications: (a) a permanent population; (b) a defined territory; (c) government; and (d) capacity to enter into relations with the other states.”

Until yesterday, the EU qualified on grounds (a), (b) and (c). Now it has ticked the final box. Under the Lisbon Treaty, which came into force today, it acquires “legal personality”, which gives it the right to sign accords and treat with other states. Nor is this right simply theoretical: the EU now has a foreign minister, a diplomatic corps (the European External Action Service) and 160 overseas embassies.

Until yesterday, the EU could not annex additional policy areas without a new treaty, which needed to be ratified by all its constituent nations. Now, it has the so-called “passerelle” clause, or self-amending mechanism. Parliament, in other words, no longer has the final say on extensions of EU jurisdiction. The EU derives its authority, not from its 27 members, but from its own foundational texts.

Until yesterday, Britain could simply walk out of the EU by abrogating the Treaty of Rome and repealing the 1972 European Communities Act. Henceforth, it will have to go through the secession procedure laid down in Lisbon. In other words – in the minds of Euro-lawyers, at any rate, if not of British constitutionalists – the EU gets to settle the terms on which its members are allowed to leave. Formal sovereignty has been shifted from the national capitals to Brussels.

It is appalling, demeaning, disgraceful that such a thing should have been done without popular consent, and in the absence of the referendum that all three parties had promised. “There’s no point in crying over spilt milk,” you might say. True. But there is every point in mopping it up.
Idont live in the UK is this true?

i live in lisbon and we had no referendum about this and almost no info about the true meanings of the treaty.
but nowdays nothing seems stupid to me since i saw last week the idiot and dictator portuguese prime minister, talking on the american-iberic that with all these words: there are already 12 state menbers to the NWO and Economical Order.
so, for the first time they used a stupid bastard and insignificant prime minister to speak clearly to the media about NWO with all the words and info.
i deon't know if it was covered by cnn or nbc but all portuguese media covered this speach.
The UK has been a European member nation for the last decade and a half. It was one of the first nations to join after the foundation of the actual Union. Nothing has changed, and certainly not overnight. The change has been occurring gradually over those fifteen years, but no member nation has actually lost sovereignty.

The only requirements set forth in the Treaty of Lisbon is that member nations are required to turn certain European guidelines into law, and I hasten to add that this has happened on the continent already. Many if not all of these guidelines actually provide a firmer and more humane way of dealing with economic and political issues, and I find them preferable over many of the current UK laws. The goal is uniformity, not consolidation.
I did not no if this was true or not I just Wanted to relay what I felt had some good info to research It was a article from another site. The guys name is listed who wrote it.and this site had 323 comments towards the article also..
