BRITISH PEOPLE MUST HAVE A VOTE OVER EURO POWER SHIFT

DAVID Cameron claims he won a great victory over the EU but at what price?
Story ImageBy resisting the proposed 5.9 per cent budget increase he believes he’s asserted our right to say no to Brussels but the Council of Ministers meeting that backed his demand also agreed to sweeping changes in the way the EU will operate in future.

Germany’s Angela Merkel has won backing for what is, in effect, a new “economic government” of the EU, so Brussels can prevent member states from borrowing and spending too much. Mr Cameron will argue that this is fine, as it will affect only countries in the eurozone and that Britain is therefore exempt but we are not. The new economic government will claim the right to examine all member state budgets to ensure their proposals are “competitive enough”, regardless of whether they use the euro. This marks a major transfer of power to Brussels, with George Osborne having to win approval from Europe for the way we decide to spend our money.

The ministers who back Ms Merkel’s plan know that the Lisbon Treaty (effectively the EU constitution) should be amended to incorporate these new powers and that the altered treaty should be voted on by member states but they don’t want that. So they have instructed pliable EU President Herman Van Rompuy to make a minimal change to the treaty so voters will believe there has been no real modification. It’s dishonest. If they get away with it, a tiny change of wording will herald a major switch and Parliamentary powers will be signed away.

When the treaty was first raised and Gordon Brown reneged on Labour’s promise of a referendum on the issue Mr Cameron and William Hague vowed there would be no further shift of power to Europe without a national vote. Now is the time to honour that promise. In exchange for getting a couple of per cent off our annual EU membership bill, Mr Cameron has signed  away more sovereignty.


The people of Britain have fought hard for the right to determine their own affairs in their own Parliament. To deny us a vote to decide how we should protect our rights is yet another betrayal.

** - Nikki SINCLAIRE GETS A LETTER IN THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH re THE PETITION - 31-Oct-2010
SIR –

The British people have never had a say on the nature of our current relationship with the EU. We are promised that a petition of 100,000 would trigger a Commons debate on EU membership.


I have been overwhelmed by the support for my petition calling for a debate on Britain’s continued membership and look forward to delivering it to Downing Street shortly.
Despite being a committed Eurosceptic, I will accept and abide by whatever decision the people make – the challenge I am laying down is for the pro-EU lobby to make that same commitment.
Nikki Sinclaire MEP

DAVID CAMERON U-TURN DENIES BRITAIN EU REFERENDUM

Story Image
David Cameron has now backed plans to sneak changes into the Lisbon Treaty

Leigh Phillips

BRITONS have been robbed of the chance to vote on a power grab by Brussels despite promises of a referendum.
In the wake of the Lisbon Treaty fiasco, David Cameron vowed Britain would never again give away powers to Brussels without first holding a referendum.
In a spectacular U-turn, however, Mr Cameron has now backed plans to sneak changes into the Lisbon Treaty without triggering referendums across Europe.
It is a significant victory for German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who was last night dining with the Camerons at ­Chequers, the Prime Minister’s country retreat in Buckinghamshire.
At the Council of Ministers, Europe’s prime ministers and presidents backed “a limited treaty change” to deliver tighter fiscal discipline across the EU and a ­permanent bail-out fund for members of the eurozone. The change will create an “economic government” for Europe.

Nigel Farage, frontrunner to lead the UK Independence Party, said: “It is one of the most massive power grabs they have ever attempted but because it is so ­devilishly complicated this might just sneak through by default. But make no mistake, these are draconian powers and without a shadow of a doubt this should trigger a referendum.”
Leaders are petrified that any change to the EU treaties would spark referendums in the UK, Ireland and the Netherlands.
In Britain the EU Referendum Campaign has been launched calling on the ­Government to give the country the vote denied when Gordon Brown ratified the Lisbon Treaty. More than 5,000 Sunday Express readers signed up after we highlighted the campaign last week.
The Referendum Lock Bill, due to be introduced in Parliament next month, was drawn up as the Conservative’s “Plan B” after Mr Cameron dropped the “cast iron pledge” to hold a referendum on the ­Lisbon Treaty following ratification.
Mr Cameron argues there will be no transfer of powers from Westminster to Brussels. He argues: “The key to a ­referendum is this question: Are we ­transferring powers. If yes, a referendum. If not, no referendum.”

The Daily Sport Comes Out In Support of an EU Referendum - 19-Oct-2010

The Daily Sport Comes Out In Support of an EU Referendum - 19-Oct-2010
EU Must Give Us A Vote

THREE quarters of people in the UK want a vote on whether we should quit the cash-gobbling European Union.

According to results published by the EU Referendum Campaign, 75% of the British public want a say on us staying in the emerging superstate.
And 73% reckon our contribution of £48million a day to the Brussels coffers is not good value for money.

Britain’s unease with our membership of the European club will be increased by news yesterday that Prime Minister David Cameron is set to cave in and allow the EU to squeeze more money from UK taxpayers.

With domestic services facing cuts outlined in last week’s spending review, Cameron had promised to block the 5.9% increase in the EU’s budget for next year.

But yesterday government sources conceded that the Brussels cash grab would go ahead and the already-bloated £107billion EU budget would swell by £3.15 billion.

That means Brit taxpayers will be asked to shell out an extra £435m a year, on top of the £8.3bn we already pay for membership of the EU.

Brussels’ latest spending spree is another reason why the British voters should have a say on our membership of the European Union, according to the EU Referendum Campaign.

Official spokesman, Jon Gaunt, said that a vote on Britain’s membership of the EU is long overdue and that the Union is a club not worth joining.

The TV and radio personality said: “Most working people join a club for cheap beer or some other benefit. What benefit do we get from the EU?

“For every £2.60 that every man and woman pays into the EU, they get a pound back.

“Who would join a club where you pay £3.80 for a £2.60 pint of beer? There’s not a working person in Britain who’d join a club like that!”

He added: “If people thought that the MPs’ expenses scandal was bad, it’s even worse in Brussels.

“Politicians support Brussels because it is a place they can go to when their pitiful careers at Westminster are over — just look at the Kinnocks!

“It is ordinary readers of the Daily Sport, coppers, plasterers and brickies who will pay for the mess that the bankers and the MPs have got us in to.

“Ordinary working class blokes and women are ultimately paying with their jobs.

“We know that David Cameron has been shocked by the reaction to the poll already. If something like 60% had called for a vote, then those in the Westminster Village could have ignored it.

“But 75% is just an overwhelming figure.

“If we get a million people to sign our petition then the demand for a vote cannot be ignored.

“Let’s have a vote. What are they scared of?”

James Pryor, chief executive of the EU Referendum Campaign said: “This sends a clear message to the Prime Minister, David Cameron, that the British public demand to have a say on our relationship with the EU before any budget increase can be approved.

“The £48m a day we send to the EU could be used to save British jobs, invest in our defence force and give all our young people equal access to higher education.

“We are not only facing a financial deficit — we are facing a democratic deficit.”

*** - 75% of the British Public want a Referendum on the EU

British Public want a Referendum on the EU
   
An Exclusive EU Referendum Campaign Poll, conducted by ComRes, reveals that...
75% of the British Public want a Referendum on the EU 
73% of the public don't believe that Britain's contribution to the EU of £48 million a Day is a good value for money

These results are part of a poll which examines the public's views on British involvement in the EU. In the context of continuing financial instability, the poll shows that the public remain unconvinced about the economic value of EU membership. 6 in 10 people say that " Britain could survive perfectly well on its own outside the EU", while less than one in three people believe that "Britain gets more financially than it gives to the EU".


James Pryor, Chief Executive of the EU Referendum Campaign, said: "This sends a clear message to David Cameron that the British Public demand a say on our relationship with the EU before any budget increase can be approved. The £48 million a day we send to the EU could be used to save British jobs, invest our Defence Force and give all our young people equal access to higher education. We are not only facing a financial deficit ... we are facing a democratic deficit."


Andrew Hawkins, Chairman of ComRes, said: “In light of last week’s dramatic spending review and continuous messaging from Government about the need for belt-tightening, it is understandable that the public wants reassurance that taxpayers get value for money from every pound the Government spends. This poll shows that among an already sceptical public, the Government have an uphill struggle to sell the benefits of EU membership given the current economic climate.”

European Union Referendum Campaign

Probably the only politician actively campaigning among the populace at large on the European Union is Nikki Sinclaire MEP. I spoke to Nikki last night and got the distinct impression that she really phoned to gloat about being at Anfield yesterday to witness a rare Liverpool win. But, as FC United beat Barrow to reach the FA Cup 1st Round for the first time I didn't mind. There's a diabolical photo of her on her blog, taken yesterday at the game.

You may remember that Nikki was thown out of UKIP earlier this year for refusing to sit in the group of homophobes, racists and anti-Semites that form the EFD Group that UKIP MEPs are part of in Brussels. Another MEP I have a lot of respect for, Mike Nattrass, has also now left the group. As I have worked as campaign manager for both in UK parliamentary elections in the past, I am relieved that they have both shown such decency and principle by leaving the EFD Group.

Now sitting as an independent MEP Nikki is campaigning for a referendum on whether or not we should remain within the  EU. Mike Nattrass is supporting her campaign as is Tim Congdon, one of UKIP's leadership candidates. As an indepndent she has cross party support and I would urge you to visit her campaign website Campaign for a Referendum.

As well as cross party support the campaign is attracting some support from those wishing to remain in the EU. After all, before the election in May the Lib Dems were in favour of an in/out referendum. One way or the other a straight in/out referendum would finally put the question of Europe to rest.

AN EU REFERENDUM MUST BE HELD

Story Image
Sunday October 24-2010
So why such a voracious appetite for our cash? Close reading of the 500-page EU budget proposals reveals a catalogue of waste. While Whitehall cuts Brussels wants a 4.4 per cent rise in administration finance. MEPs want to increase their budget for entertaining by 85 per cent and to hand a €620,000 subsidy to the firm that arranges their travel and holidays. While we are cutting quangos useless entities such as the European Institute for Gender Equality flourish on a €52 million annual budget. They even want to pour an extra €26million into space research bringing the total investment in outer space to €230 million next year.

The list of fanciful and excessive expenditure runs on and on representing an intolerable bill for any country in recession. Britain is pouring £48million a day into Brussels but what are we getting back? The EU is a subject none of our mainstream politicians want to talk about. The Conservatives say the public has no appetite to re-open the EU question but they are wrong. Times have changed and so have attitudes towards Brussels’ money-grabbing, power-seeking bureaucrats. Both the coalition and Labour before them denied us a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty but the policy of turning a blind eye cannot go on.

This week David Cameron is to attend the European Council Meeting, a perfect opportunity to act. Instead of meekly agreeing to Brussels’ latest demands he can say no. Now is the time to think of British taxpayers who have already been asked to make tremendous sacrifices, not fat-cat Eurocrats wanting our money.

Before the election Mr Cameron talked tough on Europe warning that the “walls of Jericho” would fall as voters called time on the culture of excess and waste. Now he can prove he is as good as his word.

Apologists for this gravy train say a British bid to block the budget will fail without the support of France and Germany but they miss the point. Britain could freeze its contribution to pre-budget levels and defy Brussels to act. Better still Mr Cameron could give the British a chance to voice an opinion by granting a long overdue referendum.

Before the election Mr Cameron promised to put the legislation for a EU referendum to Parliament if there was a petition backed by a million or more electors.The petition now exists and people can sign it via the internet. MrCameron may have trouble honouring his pledge now he is partnering the Euro-fanatical Lib Dems but a demand by a million voters for the right to decide on Europe would be impossible to ignore.

The present Government has had to make tough decisions which will hurt ordinary families already struggling to keep afloat. It is completely unacceptable to further burden these individuals with taxes to fund what amounts to nothing more than a broken dream.

Campaign for a Referendum in Royal Leamington Spa

Today Nikki Sinclaire's mobile Constituency Surgery was in Leamington Spa.
This gives Sinclaire the opportunity to acquit her Constituency work whilst volunteers campaign for the Petition for a Referendum and she can help out between appointments with her constituents.
It was another successful day with many people signing the petition.
Once again it was very enjoyable interacting with my electorate sometimes in rigorous debate. I find that many europhiles also feel we should have a referendum.
The important thing is that The British peoples are allowed to have their basic human right as even agreed by The UN in claiming SELF DETERMINATION is a Human Right.

Under pressure David Cameron faces calls for a new EU vote

By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 10:20 AM on 20th October 2010
 
David Cameron was under fresh pressure to hold a referendum on Europe last night - as France and Germany called for the controversial Lisbon Treaty to be redrawn.
In a surprise move, German chancellor Angela Merkel and French president Nicolas Sarkozy called for a new EU treaty to be agreed within two years.
In a joint statement the two leaders said it was ‘necessary to revise the (Lisbon) Treaty’ in order to deal with the fallout from the financial crisis.

David Cameron is under fresh pressure to hold a referendum on Europe after France and Germany called for the Lisbon Treaty to be redrawn
Ministers have pledged to introduce a ‘referendum lock’ which would require the Government to hold a public vote on any treaty changes affecting Britain.
But privately they are desperate to avoid a referendum on a subject which could split the coalition partners. Douglas Carswell, a senior Eurosceptic Tory, last night warned that right-wingers would use any move to renegotiate the Lisbon Treaty to press for a referendum.
And Mats Persson, of the think tank Open Europe, said: ‘A new EU treaty would have huge implications for the UK.’
France and Germany want to change the Lisbon Treaty to bring in tough penalties for eurozone countries such as Greece, which break the rules of the euro pact.

The development came as the European Commission tabled plans to levy direct taxes on all EU citizens.
Proposals include taxes on flights and energy - or even a new VAT charge on almost all goods, which would be paid directly to Brussels.
EU budget commissioner Janusz Lewandowski is also pressing for an end to Britain’s £3.1billion budget rebate.
Timothy Kirkhope, Tory leader in the European Parliament, said: ‘Our rebate is fully justified.’

Campaign for a Referendum

While Nikki Sinclaire was on her RAF course her team were busy in Telford with THE PETITION battle bus.

THE PETITION TEAM have reported back that it was another extremely good day with people queueing up to sign the petition.
Not only is the team on the road several days a week with all the publicity that offers as the Battle Bus travels around its destinations but to promote THE PETITION Sinclaire is conducting all her Constituency meetings with the battle bus which is set up as an office inside.

I have tried to get a schedule of where you can get to visit or see the battle bus in action but a bit like getting a schedule from James and Bridget - everyone is running around and forward plans prove difficult to obtain. ALWAYS check the >EVENTS< tab at the top of the page - with luck I can get the info. from you as all groups are co-operating in this totally cross party Patriotic venture.


Whilst this activity continues out and about the postal operation continues with requests for more Petition forms flooding in from around Britain and completed sheets arriving daily and being collated in the offices.


To launch THE PETITION from the start with registration and design, campaign timings and plans - all drawn up since Easter the whole operation has been personally funded by Nikki Sinclaire from her own salary and legitimate use of allowances - the EU bans MEPs using expenses for political gain so ensuring with The EU that she has stayed within the rules has been time consuming.

Reading between the lines we understand it was this attention to detail that led OLAF to accept her application for assistance when she was attacked in The Sunday Times by a collection of very unconvincing 'allegedlies', much to UKIP's shame!

Clearly it is time for all of us to put our shoulder to THE PETITION WHEEL this Patriotic, cross party initiative should not be left to rest on the shoulders of just one Duty Bound individual of principle - we all have our pat to play.

If you can afford to make a donation to help take the initiative forward PLEASE read the inside back cover of the Campaign for A Referendum magazine or the last but one page in the .pdf which can be read by a Click on the Pic. on the right sidebar.

Perhaps YOU can afford to repay YOUR Country by contributing just £5,000 to match Sinclaire's 50,000 magazines - lets have enough donations to get a magazine to every voter! At the moment between 20 & 30,000 magazines are going out in the post to get this Patriotic message to the peoples of Britain - without YOUR help progress will stall!

Please note on your donation if you wish to contribute anonymously or if she can list your name as a backer in future publications

IF you can not afford to donate then PLEASE contribute some time - Download a copy of THE PETITION form on the back/last page of the magazine and makes as many copies as YOU can afford and get your friends and neighbours to help you to complete as many sheets of signatures as possible & mail them in to the office.

Something for everybody who believes in Britain to do.



This has been a busy week already with The RAF course for Squadron Leader Simnclaire MEP whilst her office finalised the mail out of the magazine and started distributing batches of the remaining 20,000 + getting to Brussels for an important Constituency meeting with The CBI and then back for a small business meeting the next morning - WELL DONE SINCLAIRE

this is what UKIP members and voters elected you to do - not sound bite gesture politics, squabbling and carousing in expensive restaurants and stuffing your bank account as so many MEPs do.

Let us hope there is a great deal of financial support and the energy levels can be maintained by all.

I have been asked to thank the FEW who have made donations already. There is enough to consider publishing another 50,000 magazines with the contributions to date.


THANK YOU.

Here are Sinclaire's own comments from her blog:


I took part and successfully completed the Maritime SE Drills Rotary Wing 10/12. It was a two day course at RAF Mawgan in Cornwall. Tasks involved,  being at sea in a mock ermergency situation as a group boarding a group life raft, going through various drills before leaving the sea. The second task was to re-enter the sea inflate a solo life raft, climb aboard, go through various drills ans finally being winched by a Sea King helicopter.

As you may tell from the photos it is a fantastic experience which was made even better by the professionalism of the instructors.  This was no dummy course either as serving personnel went through the same drills. Yesterday we started in the classroom then in the afternoon we practiced in the pool. Today was the real McCoy. This scheme is very worthwhile, allowing politicians the chance to witness and participate in military life. I feel incredibly privileged to take part.

Why we need a Referendum by Tim Congdon


Clear majorities of the British people want their country to leave the European Union.

A recent YouGov poll found that 47 per cent wanted the UK out of the EU, compared with 33 per cent who preferred to stay in. Bizarrely, the latest Eurobarometer of public attitudes (financed by the European Commission) had earlier demonstrated a similar result. It showed that 33 per cent of its UK respondents regarded the EU as “a bad thing”, while 29 per cent viewed it as a “a good thing”.

The current widespread opposition to the EU is hardly surprising, as EU interventions in our national life are now disrupting long established traditions, undermining revered institutions and damaging livelihoods. The Commission, the Council of Ministers and their secretariats have used the passage of the Lisbon Treaty last year as the pretext for further encroachments on the EU member states, including the UK.

The last few months have seen a media furore over the effects of the Working Time Directive on the efficiency of British medicine and the National Health Service.

For many decades junior doctors have acquired experience – the experience which is essential if they are to be real doctors and not parrots of the textbooks – by working very long hours in real-world, often life-or-death clinical settings. Now, because of the Working Time Directive, they are prevented by law from this practice.

With lives being put in jeopardy by an EU directive, the puzzle is not that almost half of British people want to leave the EU, but why a third still believe in staying in. More and more people are angry and resentful about how EU decisions are affecting them in their daily lives.

There is a growing discrepancy between popular hostility to the EU and the willingness of successive British governments to hand over so-called “competences” to EU control.

This discrepancy is dangerous. When people believe that politicians are out-of-touch and untrustworthy, and ignore what they want, the risk of civil disobedience increases. In a modern democracy politicians must respect the wishes of citizens and voters. The case for a referendum on the UK’s continued membership of the EU is now overwhelming.

The 2009 Lisbon Treaty was undoubtedly a radical change in the constitutional arrangements of every EU member state, including the UK. All three of the main parties gave clear pledges in their manifestos at the 2005 general election to hold a referendum in the event of another big European constitutional upheaval.
Yet all three of them then judged that the Lisbon Treaty was not important enough to justify the holding of a referendum.

This is scandalous, an orchestrated insult to the intelligence of the British electorate. Britain must have a referendum on its membership of the European Union. That referendum needs to be held as soon as possible, to stop more damage being done to our traditions, our institutions and our way of life.

Aspects of UKIP that Tim Congdon will do all he can to progress, moving away from the endemic corruption here to fore.
Britain is a cross party issue NOT a Dog In A Manger self enrichment scheme.

Now, because of the Working Time Directive, they are prevented by law from this practice. 
With lives being put in jeopardy by an EU directive, the puzzle is not that almost half of British people want to leave the EU, but why a third still believe in staying in. More and more people are angry and resentful about how EU decisions are affecting them in their daily lives. 
There is a growing discrepancy between popular hostility to the EU and the willingness of successive British governments to hand over so-called “competences” to EU control. 
This discrepancy is dangerous. When people believe that politicians are out-of-touch and untrustworthy, and ignore what they want, the risk of civil disobedience increases. In a modern democracy politicians must respect the wishes of citizens and voters. The case for a referendum on the UK’s continued membership of the EU is now overwhelming. 
The 2009 Lisbon Treaty was undoubtedly a radical change in the constitutional arrangements of every EU member state, including the UK. All three of the main parties gave clear pledges in their manifestos at the 2005 general election to hold a referendum in the event of another big European constitutional upheaval. 
Yet all three of them then judged that the Lisbon Treaty was not important enough to justify the holding of a referendum. 
This is scandalous, an orchestrated insult to the intelligence of the British electorate. Britain must have a referendum on its membership of the European Union.
That referendum needs to be held as soon as possible, to stop more damage being done to our traditions, our institutions and our way of life.
