EU PLANS TO STRIP BRITAIN OF ITS LEGAL RIGHTS – Behind the curtains of the European Parliament with its non-elected eurocrats, moves are being made to strip Britain of its legal rights.
It’s goal is to introduce new human rights laws that would give anyone the right to strike, claim benefits, claim housing and indeed provide all prisoners with the right to vote.
You might be thinking that a convicted criminal relinquished their rights of liberty and freedom once found guilty and indeed that is currently the case. However those in the EU feel that these people should not have their rights taken away – I wonder how much longer it will be before a judge will be forbidden to remove their liberty through imprisonment.
Of course criminals are not really criminals but rather victims of an uncaring capitalist society who are barred from any opportunity; at least that’s the position of many liberal hard liners.
Currently the EU is permitted to issue edicts and impose fines on Britain where it breaches EU law; examples of these include that of the environment or freedom of movement.
However the EC Vice President Vivian Reding, from Luxembourg, wants a number of significant changes so that the EU will have far greater and sweeping powers over Britain and its citizens.

By her own admission she states her ‘master plan’ is a huge leap towards a ‘federal’ Europe but feels this would unite Europe under a single community.
The result, if such a plan is allowed to be implemented, would see Britain being forced into accepting and upholding the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights and would provide all EU appointed judges with the final word on human rights legislation.
In essence the British Government would not be allowed to deny anyone access into Britain and neither would it allow them to refuse benefits or housing; this is in addition to allowing all convicted criminals the right to vote – no matter the origin of their birth.
So far Britain has managed to resist the constant interference from the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), in a number of cases, however such a move would be a thing of the past.
Currently the ECHR only has the power to enforce human rights law but these proposed changes would also allow it to impose financial penalties to any country that does not comply with its rulings.
Such a move, to impose ‘federal’ powers, would be like the U.S Federal Supreme Court having full control over all U.S State; however the U.S is a single entity whereas Europe is made up of many sovereign nations – or at least for now.
Last night Chris Grayling, Justice Secretary, told members of the press that the EU currently had enough problems with the financial mess without trying to unify EU member states under the one justice system.
Such a plan is nothing short of attempting to remove all judicial powers from Britain and place full control in the hands of EU judges that are in turn appointed by non-elected EU Commissioners.
Nigel Farge is perfectly correct; the EU Commissioners incessant greed for power and control could end up in civil wars breaking out across the EU as they struggle to fight off the oppressive EU control.
You may have never heard of Vivian Reding and that’s nothing unusual, for it is unlikely that most members of the British public could name ten EU Commissioners due to the simple fact of never having voted any of them into power.
We often hear of the tyrannical dictatorships around the world, most notably at present Bashar al-Assad, but I fear you would have to go a very long way to find any regime as oppressive or tyrannical as the dictatorship that we have allowed to grow in Brussels.
It’s time our Government provided the British people with an EU referendum before these depots finally take over Britain.
